Great skirt!
A walking skirt is the key piece for my reenactment and this one is great! Nice heavy twill makes it hang and move very nicely. I have a pattern for a walking skirt, but it made so much more sense to buy this one. I do have to shorten it, but no big deal. It's already pinned up so all I have to do is sit down and stitch up the hem. I have two pairs of boots that have different height heels so I want to be sure the skirt length works for both. Or better yet, I should order a second skirt from you so I can have a longer skirt for the dressy boots and a slightly shorter one for the walking boots. I think I like that solution!

Superior Quality Item
We made multiple purchases this day. As compared to modern clothing - I rate this skirt as being very high quality. Every detail is superior and the fabric is high quality. I also had a chance to interact with the owner and staff - they were very helpful, very professional, and kind. If I have a future historical dress need I will go to no other merchant. I wish them a long and fruitful future.

Sizing too large and buttons too small
This looks rather nice (but material not so great). The buttons on it are really small. It's really long as well and I will have to get it altered or I'll be falling on my face!

Loved it!
I love the way it looked! And I got a lot of compliments on my old fashioned outfit! I would recommend Historical Emporium to anyone.

This skirt is so beautiful! It is exactly like the ones you see in vintage Edwardian photos from the years 1900-1910

Lovely Walking Skirt
Nice and full. I'm tall so the length (5'8") was fine. Multiple buttons in the back so I was able to adjust to fit.

Black vs Dark Blue?
When I opened the package containing the black cotton twill walking skirt, my first thought was I was mistakenly sent the navy-blue skirt instead of the black skirt I ordered. The tag on the skirt said black so then I just figured it was the material that made it look a lighter black. When I put it next to my other black items, shirt and belt, it still looks dark navy blue. If I put a pair of navy-blue pants up to the skirt, they are the same color. I love the skirt; it fits well and is very well made and flowingly full. I just wear it with my white or non-black blouse and belt and it looks great.

Great Skirt!
Light weight for our hot weather in Texas! Only had to hem for best fit. True to size.

Beautiful appearance!
This is definitely an all-around wear anywhere skirt. The twill cotton material is fantastic, you can wear it in any season and can be worn with any type of top. I have a white vintage lace Georgian blouse to wear with it, also a soft blush color pullover sweater, the possibilities are endless! Can be worn with my vintage black bow tie shoes or boots! Can dress it up or down, with my vintage cameo jewelry or just a bracelet or two. Arrived very quickly and unlike some sellers, in great shape, not bunched up or wrinkled, can practically be worn right out of the packaging! I really appreciate the care taken in sending the clothing, superior care for superior clothing!! Everyone comments on where I got this skirt, among other dresses I purchased here, you won't find these in the mall!! I definitely plan on getting more!

Cotton tell walking skirt
This skirt lives up to its photo. Fabric quality excellent, fit at waist and hips as quoted. But the long. I'm going to break out the sewing machine. Find someone to help me pin it up, and then put in a new hemline. Please consider petite lengths. This skirt is quality, quality, Quality and worth the price.

Beautiful and Functional
I owned two of these skirts before acquiring this one, and this one elegantly solved some of the problems of the earlier models. This is not to slag off on the previous ones, but the added buttons on the waist darts are a blessing. A few evenings ago I was out at my local, outside and "social distancing", wearing an almost entirely Historical Emporium rig (the new black skirt, a new white Yukon waistcoat, and a black "pirate shirt" with lace trim, and picked up a comment of, "You look beautiful". As a six-foot-four bloke that's not a usual comment, but it was welcome anyway. It's not just a "walking skirt" either. At one point in time I needed to actually run in one of these -- and it worked!

Runs Large
Really nice quality. I will need to take at least 5" off the length (I am 5'3"). I am a plus sized woman and I ordered this in a 4x, could easily have done with a 3x and will definitely get another one in a 2x or 3x size.
