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.

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.

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.

I love this skirt! It's beautifully made and feels really nice on. It is a heavy garment so you might want to buy a size where the waist is snug so it doesn't feel as if it's pulling down. The only thing that would improve this skirt is pockets.

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.

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!

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.

Not as pictured
The picture of the skirt I bought (it was part of an ensemble steampunk piece) had a striped pattern, which was exactly what I was looking for. The actual skirt is monochrome grey, so I returned it. I have this same skirt in black, and it is a great quality item (does run on the small side and doesn't have a lot of room to wiggle so I ended up going a size up) Not sure why they show an item for purchase that they don't sell. ----- [The Vivien skirt is as shown, solid gray with a slight heathering. -HE]

I ordered the Vivien Fishtail Skirt (Gray), Velvet Tailcoat, and Marcus Regency Shirt with Removable Jabot - White. I was looking for a formal outfit for an awards show, which was out of the ordinary, and these 3 items were perfect! When I dress formally, I lean towards metro-sexual, so this long skirt with this shirt and velvet jacket was both sexy and metro. I received many "amazing" "fabulous" "gorgeous" compliments from others at the show. I ordered all 3 on a two-day shipping, and in fact received my items two days after I ordered online, which is the first time I have ever received items within 2 days. Sizing was correct to the size chart.

I purchased this skirt as the first piece to build upon for a steampunk look! This skirt is beautiful. Needs a little hem but otherwise fits beautifully. Rides high on natural waist which makes it perfect for Wearing with a crop or long jacket! The grey is actually the perfect neutral to build on. Very figure flattering! Makes a tail where there isn't one if you get the picture..very feminine. Get it! You won't regret it. I will be wearing this for a special occasion, not just costume.

High Quality Skirt
I love the fishtail skirt! It's perfect for winter weather, with its heavy material and lining. With all its frills and laces, it's extremely comfortable and fits like a glove. It looks fitting and flattering, but doesn't feel constrictive. My only surprise when I pulled it out of the package was its length. I measured at a Medium, but it goes all the way up past my ribs and still has to be folded over so I don't step on it. I am 5'4". Even with the folding over, though, I wore this skirt all night and even danced, and it felt comfortable the entire time. It's versatile enough to wear to work with a "regular" top and boots. It's very fun and pretty, with surprisingly high quality material.

This skirt (And company) is AMAZING... I ordered it for NYE to go with a stunning corset I had just won in a contest, & the shipping was SO FAST that I got it in PLENTY of time. I'm pretty short (5'3"), and the chiffon "train" in the back still came to about what you see in the pic; But I definitely couldn't have worn flats with it.

This is another piece that can work with anything. Who knew I would have another place to wear this skirt after I got it for a 100th Anniversary party? I went to a 'Country' themed benefit and it was perfect! This will work for a ton of costumes - and I already wore it for real! AND it will work for all the girls in my family because it's one size fits all - and it did!

Fun skirt, great fit!
What a great find. I need this for a period costume for an upcoming local event and it is perfect! Nice fabric and the "one size fits all" concept works for this skirt. I am short, so the ankle length of this item makes for the right full length for me and I did not have to hem it, as I would have for any true full length item. In addition to the period costume need, I think I will wear this again and again. I may even order it in another color! Thanks, Historical Emporium for having just the right item and for the speedy shipment. Not only will I shop here again, but I will certainly recommend this site to others.

This Skirt was a perfet fit, and I love the intricate detail of embroidery and the pannels show up beautifully especially under indoor lighting. I had many complaments on the material and how they year of 1905 fit this skirt! It was ship on April 15th and arrived at my house on April 18th, I needed to wear this skirt on April 20th to a 4-H banquet as lead Instructor of Living History. When they say expidte shipping, they are not kidding!!!! Would I order from Historical Emporium again? I sure would with confidence of size which are right on! Thank you Historical Emporium !!!!

Love this skirt
It's beautiful and of great quality. Love the material. I'm looking forward to wearing it. I found it true to size but very long, I'm 5'3" , I have to wear it high up on my ribs and it still goes way past my feet. 4" heels or higher will need to be worn. I found it to hug my curves which is something I was hoping for. The lace detail on the back is gorgeous.

The skirts fits snug and very appealing. Have not had a chance to wear but when the full outfit it put together I think it will suit my taste

I purchased this skirt to wear to a Victorian-themed wedding, and I couldn't be happier with it. The fabric is of great quality, with a nice weight to it, and given the cut, the skirt still offers a surprising amount of mobility. The lacing is more for show than function, but I appreciate the ease of the zipper. To top it off, it looks absolutely ravishing!

Lovely skirt
Love this skirt. I bought it to wear to a masquerade ball paired with a corset top. It looks fantastic. It does run a bit long, but that was easily solved by hemming the bottom. It hugs my curves, but I can still move well in it. The fit was very true to the sizing chart.

So feminine
I had to try a few times to get the right size. This one is true to size and doesn't stretch. Lovely feminine style. Goes very well with the Olivia Lace-up Jacket. Love it.

Quality great, too long
Although I love the quality and look of this skirt, it wiil have to be altered due to the long length. It is easily 6 inches longer than stated length.

Not for petite sizes
I am 5'3" and even in 2" heels the skirt comes up to my breasts. About 4 inches above my natural waist. Will need to have it altered quite a bit to fit my very curvy, petite frame. But i pulled it up and used it under my corset and disguised it temporarily.

I loved it!
I was a little apprehensive about ordering something like this online but man am I glad I did. Everything was very neat when I received the package and when I tried it on this thing fit me like a glove. It is VERY true to size, if you are an inch or two bigger than one of the sizes and you are thinking "Eh, I bet I can squeeze in there" um you can try but I wouldn't count on being able to do it. It also does not really stretch so don't count on that either and it has a lovely high waist that fit very well under my corset and blouse that I wore with it. I got a lot of compliments and it I must say... I felt like my butt looked great in this. It's simple, made of a nice material, with a very neat zipper closure. I look forward to getting a chance to wear this again.

Excellent!!!
I am tall, wear a size 4 jean, size 6 dress and this fit perfectly. It is fully lined and the quality of the materials and sewing are very good. I am 66 and needed the skirt for several occasions where I could look sexy without looking trashy. The compliments were numerous. I look fantastic in it and am very pleased. Thanks

Gorgeous sexy skirt
Oh my! What a skirt. Arrived very neatly packaged. This skirt is well made and fully lined. The fishtail is beautiful and adds class to the skirt. Its just a gorgeous sexy skirt. I am 5.4 and its long, so this skirt needs some heels. I am planning on styling it with a white ruffled shirt, waist cincher and the Calista coat (when its back in stock!), with a pair of high heeled boots, Im gonna rock this skirt, cant wait.
