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.

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.

No petites offered
I had to pay $50 to have this twill cotton skirt altered - it was about 5 inches too long. I sent it back the first time; don't read the reviews that state it is too small. I usually wear a 2X fitted but ordered a 3X because of previous reviews. That was a mistake; the 2X was the correct size, but again - no petites were offered and I had to have this altered.

Comfortable skirt; great fabric and quality
This skirt is very well made inside and out, and looks great when it's worn, because the fabric is a good quality and weight, and hangs well. The measurements are accurate as posted with the description. The two sets of buttons allows you to make the adjustments to get the right fit. My order arrived when promised, and in great condition. A great shopping experience!

Very nice
Once again a very well made garment. Rather heavy but that's ok. My only fuss is that I would really like the tops go with the bottoms. I bought a black blouse and was really hoping that the black skirt would match but there is a difference, especially in the sun. The skirt is more of a dark charcoal shade. However, I will wear them together as I have a big frilly apron to break things up. Even if you sold the fabric, I could makeup an Eton jacket. I saw that is the same situation with the wool skirts. I'd buy the fabric as the cost of the fabric and the time spent making would equal out the cost of the finished garment. I go for historical accuracy as much as possible. Buying something once in a while just beats making it even if it is only half the outfit.

Beautiful skirt
I wear petite proportioned garments so I had to alter the length and take in the waist... better than it being too small. It's well made and good quality so alteration is possible without destroying it.

This is a great skirt! Lots of fabric makes it easy to walk in. I ordered 2 XL because I am big around and it fits great. I will have to shorten the skirt because I am not a tall person. I am pleased.

Impressed!
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.

Nice 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.

This is a very nice skirt - well made, looks good and is a beautiful, rich brown color. I also own this style in the tan/khaki color. I like the option of the extra buttons in the back which allow for adjustment depending on whether you're wearing a blouse tucked in or an over blouse.

Amazing Quality
I purchased this pinstripe walking skirt and the matching shirt for an upcoming event in my hometown. The event requires us to have on traditional looking 1850's clothing. This outfit is fashioned perfectly for the time period, very well made and fit true to size. I am so impressed and felt the price was great for the quality I received.

Good Quality but sizing is off
The fabric and construction is good quality, but of the 4 skirts I ordered, 3 had to have the center back panel completely removed to fit properly at the waist. These definitely run a bit big.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
