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.

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.

soft and flattering
I was amazed at how soft this was. Like brushed cotton. I am 4'10" and with the substantial amount of hemming needed, it was still shapely and flattering, and looked even better with the wide belt they sell. I'm glad to have this skirt, I think it will be very versatile for different costumes and events. Very good price for the quality.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wow! This is a amazing skirt! It is very heavy and will be great for my outdoor adventures here when the snow flys here! The extra bottons are a big bonus for adjusting the fit. It is very long and I'm short so I did have to take it to be shortened but that is always a issue for me. I wish it came in differnt lengths. I am planning to order another color!

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!

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!

This is a wonderful skirt -- the color is just as shown in the photo (a rich deep garnet), the material is light and flowy, and the cut is flattering for a variety of body types.

One Size Really Doesn't Fit
First off all, this skirt was beautiful! I loved it. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear it. It only comes in one size, and while it technically fit me--insofar as I could get it on my body--it was not attractive at all. I am on the large size, and the skirt fit very tightly over my caboose' and did not, in fact swirl and just plain looked bad. This really needs to come in a bigger size, with more fabric, for the plus size among us. I gave it to my daughter, who is much smaller than I, and it looks lovely on her. I hope to see it offered in a larger size some day so I can buy one for myself.

Great Skirt
As advertised! High quality material, beautiful colour, and wonderful style! I suppose if I must pick something to be 'unhappy' about is the size. Perhaps that is just me, and not the skirt itself, but the top is a bit loose. The zipper seems somewhat odd, too, but I cannot place how. Overall I would say buy it! I am glad to add this to my wardrobe!

Great Skirt!
I really was impressed with this skirt quality. It is very long so I had to have it shortened but I always do. Other wise the fit was perfet! Very flattering with the somerset blouse's. Would work for a pioneer, victorian or old west look.

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.

Walking skirt
I was thrilled and delighted with my purchase and decided to go ahead and order a summer skirt as well. I liked the fit and the length was grand. I am a tour guide in costume and I also am involved in first person theater in our area, of women of the 1800's. I will enjoy the comfort of my new outfits. Thanks, so much!

Very Nice!
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.

Handsome, well-made, versatile skirt
Very nice, good quality skirt. The button closures at the back work great. I'm very satisfied with this purchase - the (international) transaction was very smooth and trouble-free.

Functional and comfortable
This skirt was a great value. The material kept me cool in the heat and warm in the chill of night. It also functioned as a blanket to sit on when wearing it and was very comfortable.

Quality item--worn as a costume in a play. Worn several times and skirt is absolutely well-made, of good quality material, and looks wonderful on. I may even wear it on other occasions as well.

Quite small and lightweight.
I ordered a 3X, which is the size I normally wear in clothes, but this fit like the top size items offered by Chinese vendors on Amazon... I am guessing from how far this came from zipping up that a 3X might really fit a size 14 or 16 person. The fabric was also very lightweight, much more so than I was expecting.

Great skirt, poor sizing chart
I ordered this skirt fir a costume, and to use for future costumes/events. The quality of the skirt is great, though the design is a little weird to figure out how it works at first. However it really only takes a few moments to get it. I got plenty of compliments on it, and it even lent to me winning a costume contest. However, I had issues with the sizing chart. I typically wear a 20 in bottoms in standard store sizing. According to the chart, I needed a 28. Now, there was another reviewer who mentioned the same statistics, and said that the 28 was about a size and a half too big, so I ordered a 26 hoping that would fit. It does not. With how it fits, I probably should have gotten a 22. Had I not been wearing a corset with my costume that held the skirt up, I wouldn't have been able to wear it. I'm going to have to get it taken in to wear it in the future.

Just stunning!
I am so very pleased with this purchase. The skirt is beautiful in every way. Very well constructed with high quality, durable frabric that drapes and runches beautifully. The zipper is durable and expertly sewn in. The eyelets are smooth and perfect. Wrinkles steam out quickly and easily while the fabric dries instantly. I love that it can be worn literally 6 different lengths (though most of us will likely only use 3) and is so highly versatile. I bought this to be my base unit skirt for any costume I wish from vampire, witch, to gypsy, pirate, to Dickens Faire and Lady in Mourning and on and on. It Is Perfect! Note: The skirt runches in three different sections on each side of the skirt. It took me a while to find the ribbon that runches the middle section. They are on the INSIDE of the skirt. When you pull the ribbons inside the skirt both the top and middle sections runch up. If you are apple shaped like me, do NOT go buy the size chart. This skirt is very high waisted without any elastic or stretchablily. I went by the waist measurement and ended up with a skirt 3 sizes too big. I ordered one size larger than I normally wear and it fits perfectly. If you are looking for that perfect skirt to build you garb and costume wardrobe upon, you won't go wrong with the Margurite.

Size guide wrong.
I am a plus-sized woman so I paid attention to the size chart and ordered what, according to their guide, should fit me. Now, in normal US stores, like Belk's, I wear size 20. According to their guide, I needed a size 28 to fit my hips and waist. Since it was a high waist, and a fitted skirt, I wanted to make darn sure it wasn't going to be too small as there was no give. So, I ordered the 28. The 28 is a size and a half too big, and now I'm left trying to figure out in the world I'm going to take this sucker in without messing it up.

Love this skirt!
I love the look and fit of this skirt. I am excited to add it to my wardrobe and start wearing it places! An added note, which I picked up in other reviews, is that the length is adjusted from the inside of the skirt. I will definitely be shopping here again!

Fit like a glove
Not only is the silk underlining awesome to feel, but true to their measurement guide, the skirt fit like a glove. The fabric was excellent and you can tell that I will be able to keep this skirt for a very long time. Thank you Historical Emporium for taking the extra time and care in making your items. I am very impressed!

Nice but too high waisted
Skirt fits well but I'm short (5 3 1/2") and short waisted, so the top of the skirt hits over my rib cage. Therefore I have to fold it down to wear it comfortably. Lucikly I have a bodice I can wear over it. Would be nice to have a similar skirt that I could wear with a shirt tucked in!

Wonderful item. Have worn skirt wearing both sides out. As in other's reviews, it is a bit heavy, but not so much as to deter from purchasing.

Amazing Fabric
Terrific for re-enacting. Adaptable to several eras (e.g. Victorian through WW1, depending on undergarment and modified length), and ideal for winter outdoor use--the fabric is very high thread count, dense, heavy wool.

Very Heavy Wool Fabric
I truly wanted to like this skirt, and had hoped to wear it during this holiday season with the Victoria Blouse I had recently purchased. But, alas, it was not to be. While the navy color, length (I'm a 6 footer), and style of this skirt were perfect, the weight of the very thick wool fabric was overwhelmingly. I returned this skirt because of the fabric, no other reason.
