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!

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.

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 length....so 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!

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.

Dream Skirt
This is a lovely piece! It was such a joy to try on for the first time. The navy is just the shade I had hoped for and those buttons in the back are a great touch. :) As a tall lady (5'7'') with a 29'' waist, I thought I was taking a chance by ordering a small. However, the length and fit are great! This skirt pairs nicely with my new Victorian Boots as well, they give me the bit of extra height needed to keep the hem off of the ground. I like this so much that I will be getting one in another color...

I recently purchased the Navy Cotton Twill Walking Skirt & I LOVE it. The fit is just right for me even without wearing a corset. I am slowly transitioning into 19th C clothing on a full time basis & being a woman who wears a 2x makes it difficult. But you have made it easier & I received my order much quicker than I thought I would. Thank you :)

This skirt is perfect! The back allows adjustments so that it fits quiet nicely. I used this skirt in my high school classroom for a simulation that we were doing and the students thought that the skirt with the Gibson blouse was delightful and helped to "set the stage" in the classroom for an era that has gone by. I have since decided to purchase the skirt in black so that i will have more options for next year!

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

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.

The skirt was exactly as in the picture. The material is durable and heavy. For the most part the stitching is very secure. (three stitches in the waist band unraveled but very easily fixed by even a complete sewing novice like me.). I am happy over all.

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!

Mrs Daly loves it!
As a docent at the Marcus Daly Mansion (Riverside) in Montana, I need in-period costumes to give tours. I am also a performer with our Acapella Society, singing at Christmas events. This comfortable and well-made skirt fits both venues. It has exceptional detail with the back ruffles, the slight A-line and can be used dressed or casual. I needed a small, but purchased medium, which will work for outdoor winter performances, covering the much-needed thermal underwear! I'm more of a petite, so the skirt is a bit long, but can be easily remedied, or even stylized further to create a slight train. Next time Mrs Daly appears, I'm sure she'll give a nod of approval!

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!

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.

Risk Worth Taking!
I don't know how I missed the existence of this suit for so long. I will chock it up to not really wearing skirts and therefore paying more attention to the men's section. However, when I went looking for something to pair with my Gibson girl blouse, I did a serious double take, given that I'd bought a pattern for basically this exact outfit years ago, back when I had dilusions of learning to sew well. I'd even planned on using these exact colours! Needless to say, I had to have it. Enter my wacky build. According to my chest measurement, I'm a S. According to my waist measurement, I'm a L. L was out of stock, so Mum and I looked at each other and, after some debate, decided that since I frequently wear M jeans, it would be worth it to order the M. Fingers crossed, I placed the order and... ...PERFECT FIT! I about did a little dance when I tried it on, but there wasn't room in Mum's bathroom! And it's well made and the weight is lovely and the skirt twirls! This will undoubtedly become my 'most worn outfit with an actual skirt' in short order. I want to go to the park in it and just walk around looking amazing.

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.

Well made suit. I work at a historic home, we give tours and this suit should hold up well for a long time.

Sepcial suit
This beautiful navy suit is extremely well made. Fabric is good weight and not only looks good, but will hold up. the buttons in the back and the way, the back is made, made it easy to move the buttons to take in the waist a little. Perfect. I'm very pleased with the look, and the quality.

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.

Really nice but too long
I am was looking for something to wear to a Dicken's Fair. The skirt is very well made and looks beautiful. I do wish it had come in different lengths since I am short and this skirt is made for someone who is very tall. A hoop skirt would not solve the problem. Keeping it though, since I like it so much.

Almost perfect!
I wish the skirts came in a shorter length. I need the larger size but am 5'2"; so the skirts always have to be hemmed . Extra work and extra cost to shorten.

A lovely addition to my wardrobe
This skirt is quite simply, lovely. It is a slight shade darker than I expected but I have no complaints. The quality, as always, has exceeded my expectations. It's a delightful addition to my Victorian-inspired wardrobe. I will need to have it hemmed (a downside of being vertically challenged). I will certainly purchase more items from this company.

Watch the sizing
This split skirt is really cute. Nearly all the reviews I had read on this garment said that it runs very small and suggested ordering one, if not two, sizes up. I'm somewhat thick around the middle, so I ordered two sizes up, and it was HUGE. I could probably have gone all the way back down to my "normal" size, but that was going to take longer to receive as it wasn't already in stock. I needed it for a specific event and couldn't take a chance of it not fitting or not arriving in time. I returned the huge size and ordered another one only one size up from my normal size. It was still large in the waist and quite long on me. I decided to keep it, washed and dried it in the hottest temperatures possible, and it did shrink a bit in the waist. It's do-able now for this event (with a belt cinched pretty tightly). It's still long, but I can live with it...I can always have it taken up when I have more time after the event. If you're able to do so, I'd suggest ordering your normal size AND a "back-up" size, and then keeping whichever one is the closest fit to what you need. Just remember that it's 100% cotton, so it will shrink a little.

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.

love them!
I bought the brown suede looking riding pants for the winter for my girls and I and we loved those. Now I bought these for the spring/summer and the opinion is the same. They are very light weight and comfortable. Perfect for modestly and stylishly riding their horses during the warm months.

Lovely.
These are a lovely breezy pair of pants. I am yet to wash them so they are yet to shrink, but the quality is really good and they go really well with my steampunk outfit.

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.

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.
