best skirt yet
This is the 2nd skirt I have purchased here. I bought this skirt 1 size smaller than my previous skirt because I know the sizes run large. It fits perfectly, partly due to the elastic waist. It is also the right length right out of the box (I had to have my other skirt hemmed). I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs a basic Victorian skirt. Keep a lint roller handy, because the twill attracts almost everything!

Lovely skirt!
This is a very beautiful, well made skirt. It can be thrown in the washer and dryer and the folds and layers in the back can be touched up with an iron - don't have to dry clean! I'm paring this with a pair of victorian boots and the Abbington blouse. One could probably wear this skirt not as a costume, with a long sleeved V neck T-Shirt and a wide black belt.

Beautiful!
This is a gorgeous garment. It is twill, so the hems will tend to fold over in the dryer and it will need a touch-up with an iron when it comes out. but you CAN put it in the washer and dryer, which is huge when you're talking about practical clothing. The length, weight, and drape of this are just beautiful. I have a thick waist, measuring around 36", and I ordered the XL. It fits well enough that I'm not going to exchange it but if I had it over I would order the Large -- there's ample stretch in the elastic and it would be a bit more snug/secure in the smaller size. Would love to see this offered in other colors!

a rustle in the bustle
This is a super skirt. I wear a size 18 or better and it fits to perfection. AND doesn't look too big. the ruffle is only in the back and makes a nice silhouette. the front panel hangs smooth, just as it should. I would buy this in other colors too, if only it were made in brown, rust, tan or navy.

This skirt came with plenty of length for me at 5'8". It is well constructed and the elastic had a comfortable amount of give. It looks good alone; but the twill has a soft hand after washing. I don't find this a detriment at all for it makes it very comfortable. But it loses a little fullness because of it. It also looks great over hoops or with just a small bustle pad.

Great skirt
Ordered this at the last minute before an event and so glad I did. Lovely weight and quality of fabric. Great, comfortable design. Looked great, was easy to put on and it fit nicely under a corset. If only it came in a lovely dark brown...sigh. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a bit of a fancier back but still maintaining a general simplicity and elegance.

This old skirt
This skirt is well made, however, I wish that there was a sized down version for the shorter customer. I did not want to lose any of the fullness of the skirt by hemming at the bottom, so... I have opted to lose some of the detailing at the waist by folding the material there to take out about five inches of fabric; the swing of the skirt will still be good, but I will lose most of the top ruffle of the skirt. (the petticoats will have to go through a similar process) If I could wear five inch stilts there would be no problem. I love the concept of this old skirt.

Excellent Walking Skirt
This is a beautiful skirt, with a gabardine-quality cotton, yet it does not crease and is easy to iron. At night the dark royal blue cotton takes on a lovely sheen, especially for photographs. It is easy to walk in, very smart, and I wore it with a wide, black velvet belt and a cream-lace, cotton, long-sleeved blouse (also from Historical Emporium). The whole outfit was lovely and I received compliments on the skirt, especially. If you are a size 4-6, and you purchase the 'small', it is a little big at the waist, so you may need to adjust it. The belt was neat and helped keep the skirt smaller at the waist. The XS size was unavailable but I had an event to attend and wanted to proceed. I would say the skirt runs a little bit bigger, so if you are a size 4, you definitely need XS, not S. A wonderful skirt, with nice features, and very elegant. Thank you.

I love the way the back is made. The only thing wrong is the sizing isn't true to a XXL. I really wear an XL but buy XXL just in case it doesn't fit loosely. Well, this beautiful skirt isn't loose at all. I should have tried it on when I got it but didn't. I will be wearing it tomorrow or I would return for the next size up

Well-made & Graceful
Bought this as a fifteenth birthday present for my daughter, who loves all things Victorian. It was a hit. The skirt is well-made of nice, sturdy twill, and falls gracefully from my daughter's waist to the floor. The double buttons and vents and gathering in the back is charming. If my daughter decides she'd like another of these in a different color, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. This is a lovely piece of old-time clothing.

Twill Walking Skirt - Navy
I ordered the XL and it was too large on me. The skirt has beautiful fabric and is well made. I suppose I could have moved the buttons on the back to take it in, but there was a great deal of fabric, and the L would probably look better on me for that reason. The company was prompt with a refund and great to work with. Excellent communication.

This skirt was for a Titanic party and it looked really really good. I'm a size 16 and I ordered size XL and it was about a size too small. I was able to add to the skirt without a problem because it was such a full skirt, I had lots of fabric to work with. I was still very happy with this skirt and I felt very proud of my costume.

Top notch costumes
I recently ordered costumes to try on for a part I have in an Historical Drama later this year. I chose the Ladies Edwardian Suit together with a blouse in natural and the cameo on the black velvet ribbon. The costumes are very well made, they are a good price for the quality you get, and if you order by measuring they fit perfectly. All skirts are adjustable at the waist and are designed so they can be hemmed to your height. I was able to easily send back the costumes I did not choose easily and recommend this costume source.

Impressive
This was purchased initially for a Titanic-themed evening, with future 1910s outings in the future. Anyone who saw it was incredibly impressed and asked where I bought the outfit! It looked very impressive and beautifully detailed. And the sizing was very very generous. The fabric has a nice weight and is well put together. My only gripe would be that it would be nice to mix and match sizes, as while the skirt was a touch large, the jacket was absolutely swimming on me and it will be a shame to have to alter it. All in all, if you're careful about the sizes, then I'd happily recommend it. And the processing and delivery was exceptionally fast.

Excellent quality
The cotton twill walking skirt in black looks fabulous. I'm very impressed with the fabric quality, attention to detail, and price. I did order an XL large and returned it for the Large--the large fits beautifully and will allow for weight loss adjustments. Now, I have to find an instock blouse! This garment is for casual wear--it looks awesome with my Fluevogs--but it can also be glammed up for night life.

I was amazed at how soft this was. Like brushed cotton.

Perfect performance
My daughter portrayed Aleen Cust, a turn of the century woman and 1st female veterinarian for a history project. She was timid and hesitant to be in the spotlight. Looking the part was a real confidence booster! She looked just like a real woman from 1900 who had to be practical about her clothing but fit perfectly in the fashion of the period. Making the skirt would have cost time and no less money. I will use them again in future for period outfits- school functions, reenactments, Halloween.

Purchased this skirt to go with white Gibson Girl Blouse and pinstripe blouse. The style is great, fabric is sturdy, and it is well-constructed. I ordered a medium because the size chart indicated it was a match to my waist size. I had to move the buttons to make the waist smaller. On my next order I will get a small instead of the medium. Waist was big.

I was very impressed by the quality of this skirt. It is very well put together and has a good heavy feel about it. I bought this to wear to my daughter's Steampunk wedding but will be wearing it well beyond that because I love it. I will be wearing the tulle bustle skirt under it and a corset over it. It looks fantastic and I can't wait to wear it to the wedding. My husband will be wearing the brown cotton twill vest and trousers which match. I bought size XL as my waist size is 34". Because of the design, it is possible to add another button to make it a little larger or smaller. Very very happy!!

Great Skirt
I really liked this skirt from the moment it arrived. It is well made, and the fabric quality is excellent. The buttons on the back allow for adjustment in the waist. If I could suggest an improvement, it would be to make these in a petite length. At 5 feet and no inches tall, it was of course, too long. However, I am used to this, and it did not take long to re-hem it to an appropriate length. I highly recommend this skirt.

I purchased the blouse featured in the photo of this costume, along with the belt. I called customer service to verify it was available and shipping time. It came faster than I had hoped, and fit perfect! I did not have to make any fitting adjustments. Both the director and the actress loved it.

fit the bill
I was a volunteer at a historic reenactment event and needed an outfit I could put together without a lot of time and effort, so I bought this suit. As others have noted, it has an adjustable waist, which in my opinion is one of its nicest features. The jacket has a generous cut, which was great for me, since I have wide shoulders. I didn't have a black belt so I sewed on a black frog closure at the bottom of the jacket which really complimented it. Even though it's cotton it doesn't wrinkle too much, and it's pretty comfortable. Added a button up white long sleeve blouse with a brooch at the collar and presto-- edwardian outfit.

Everything about this outfit is perfect. It is sized correctly. The material on stitching is quality.The color is beautiful. the design is impeccable. I stand 5 foot 2 so start with just a little long, but I suspect I can roll it at the waist and it will be just fine. The skirt is made so that the way to be a justice several inches. I am very much in love with this outfit.

I love this outfit! After nearly fainting in a parade, I needed an Edwardian outfit for riding my antique bicycle that would not require me to be corseted. This one is perfect. It looks great and with the short jacket, the focus is off the waistline and it looks every bit as good as my corseted outfits. I bought two of these in different colors.

I took a chance and purchased this suit to play a role in a community theater production, rather than having a costume custom-made for me. It was VERY well made, and I loved that it had two sets of buttons so the waistband is adjustable. I did end up adding small darts in the back of the jacket to compensate for my narrow shoulders, but I'm very pleased with this outfit and will certainly use this company again.

These run small
Love the fabric. High waisted fit. Product is good, but does run small - had to inch it on over my hips.

Nice pants
These pants are full length which is very nice. The fit is a little different as they tend to give one a wedgy if you bend over. I ordered the Rust and Black classic riding pants and do not have that issue, so I believe it is just how this particular pair is made. Other than that, they are very comfortable.

Modest Riding Skirt
I really like this riding skirt. I had worn the kind with a panel in front that can be buttoned to look like a skirt or pants. This skirt is a lot lighter to wear. It goes down to about the ankles and looks nice with my cowboy boots. Easy to climb over gates when doing chores and getting on a horse. Lays nice when in the saddle and doesn't really billow out or ride up. I especially like that I can wear a belt with this. I can't say how it holds up over time as I haven't worn it much yet. I got one size bigger than I normally wear and it just fits. I would get another that is one size bigger for winter so that I would have room for wearing long underwear or sweatpants underneath. I would recommend this to any cowgirl who wants to feel or look modest and feminine.

Good Pick
Although I think the products are a bit pricey, I certainly can not complain about the construction. I purchased both the blouse and skirt and both are very well made. I am new to this time period and a little hesitant about the look of the outfit but I think it will work for 1895. I thought the adjustability of the skirt was very clever and doesn't detract from an authentic look, at least as far as I can tell. I figure I'm saving myself a lot of work and aggravation by not sewing this one from scratch. However, I will be jazzing it up with some borders and an additional collar. I will also add horsehair around the hem. This is all for an event later this month where I give house tours and like to dress to the year the house was built. I think I'm pretty happy with this purchase and will be buying a white blouse sometime in the future.

Great Skirt!
I love this skirt. It is nicely made and looks great in the black and white pinstripes. I wore it for the first time today (with the matching blouse and a black jacket) for a suffragette outfit that I wore to one of the Women's Marches. These are made like real clothing, not costumes, very nice. The skirt feels very accurate to the period - smooth and staight in front with a wonderful great sweep behind. I wore three petticoats under it for the full effect. It felt great! I did get the hem quite muddy, so we'll see how she does in the laundry!

Pinstripe skirt
I am very pleased with the pinstripe skirt. The fabric and quality are great and the adjustable button waist makes for a good fit.

Pinstrip Walking Skirt
Though I used reasonable measurements as instructed, this skirt was much larger. Even after washing, with a fair amount of shrinkage, I had to alter the waist. But my whole outfit with the blouse and hat was stunning. I got many compliments at our 4th of July festivities.

Love the Material
Just what I wanted. The material is perfect as is the style. The size small fit but was a little tight around the waist. I returned for the medium which fits perfect with room to expand. Hopefully, I will not need it to expand.

Loved it!
I wore my skirt with a regular-non hoop petticoat and it was perfect. It was comfortable and I received several compliments. I have since ordered a blouse and another skirt. I am only 5'3 and with a two inch heel it was just fine, no hemming necessary. Very nicely made and the material is perfect.

Love it but,
I love the skirt, it looks fabulous on, especially with some crinoline underneath. There were two things I didn't like about it. Firstly, the size was not as expected. I ordered according to the size guide and the waist was much too large. Nice in and of itself, but I needed to re-order or do a drastic alteration. Lucky for me the event I'm going to was postponed so I had time to re-order. I ordered two more in descending sizes and was happy with the smallest one I ordered. So the first one I ordered was two sizes too large, and I ordered according to the size guide. Secondly, the way it closes in the back leaves gaps which may be period correct (or not, I have no idea), but I'm not thrilled with that issue. That being said I do love it and will have lots of fun wearing it. I will totally buy from you again!

Love the style and workmanship of this skirt. I have a special event to wear it at this fall and can't wait. I had to shorten it but that is a normal thing for me. Thanks for VERY fast delivery.

Best Ever!
I normally don't take the time to give feedback on online purchases but must make an exception for this one. The skirt, matching blouse & belt are great quality & fit true to measurements given. I ordered the outfit & put a note in the remarks section that I needed the pieces for an event in about 3 weeks. I asked them to let me know if this would be a problem. I received a response the next day that my entire outfit had been mailed! I had the outfit in 2 days & was thrilled with the whole experience with HE. What great customer service! I will definitely look here first for anything I need in the future. Thanks so much, HE!

Great skirt
The skirt will work for our Pioneer tools or our blacksmith demonstrations. I am short, so I will cut about 3 inches off the top of the skirt and put elastic back in. I may order a small hoop to wear with it. Great skirt.

Nice Skirt
Lovely navy skirt with back flounces. Well made and substantial. It is a bit long on me, though (I'm 5'3").

Cute skirt!
This is a comfortable skirt, but in my opinion it runs a little large. It does not come in petite sizes, which would be really nice as I have to roll up the waist to avoid dragging the skirt on the ground. Hemming it up is an option, but then the proportion of the length of the ruffles wouldn't look as nice in my opinion. One should also know that twill cotton is a heavy fabric, and there is quite a number of yards of fabric in this gathered skirt. So, the skirt is pretty heavy, as they likely were back in the day. It is 100% cotton and I have not laundered the skirt at this writing, so I cannot provide information on potential shrinkage or not or whether the fabric would fade. This skirt looks great and just the period style I was looking for. I would have given it 5 stars if it fit more as expected. The waistband is elastic which helps make it comfortable, and I purchased a wide belt to wear over the waistband to give my outfit a little more of a finished look.
