Walking Skirt
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 :)

Twill Walking Skirt
I absolutely love this skirt. It is made very well and I received many compliments on it. It fit perfect in length, just a little loose in the waist but I had layers on so it was perfect! I will definitely be buying more in the future!

Shopping should always be so easy!
Was happy to finally find a true dark navy blue skirt. Fit is true to size and adjusts in the back. Great quality as usual and holds up well in the wash.

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.

Love it!
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.

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.

I was very pleased with this skirt. Fit was as described, with quite a bit of flexibility based on the multiple buttons available.

Mar 20, 2018

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

west liberty oh
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. 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.

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.

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!
Oct 1, 2020
Runs Large
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!
May 19, 2019
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Overall Good
The material was thinner than I'd hoped but for the price it's a decent skirt and worked with my costume. The elastic easily fit me and I'm a bigger person.

Very Happy
I am very happy with this skirt. It arrived earlier than anticipated even though I did not pay for expedited shipping. The adjustable waist fits perfectly and is comfortable. I am a petite and the length hits just below ankle with 1 1/2 -2 inch heels. The embroidery on the black is really pretty. The quality of the material is much nicer than you would expect at this price.

Nicely made
The skirt is as described and accurately represented in the photos. The sizing chart seems accurate as well. This is important to me because I run between sizes (it's gonna be a small or a medium). Well made. Haven't worn it yet but it is the exact look I was searching for.

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. LOL I was at a venue with 4,000+ people, & was probably the oldest woman in the room (I'm 54), & I was voted the "Sexiest-Dressed-Woman" of the night... :-)

Vivien Fishtail Skirt - Gray
The skirt is great, ran a little big so had to order a size smaller. Returning the wrong size was no problem and the refund was processed very quickly. Great Job Guys!

Just didn't fit
A really cool skirt that unfortunately isn't made for my body. I am slim with slim hips, and this skirt was way too big in the waist while fitting very snugly over my hips. It was also too long for me to wear, even with heels. I am 5"6".

Vivien Fishtail Skirt
I love the skirt! It does run long though - I am 5'3" and even with heals it is a couple inches too long - I hiked it up and folded the waistband over .

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]

Vivien fishtail skirt
The skirt is just as pictured. They do run small so order two sizes larger than what you normally wear. The skirt is awesome!

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.

Fishtail skirt
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.

The skirt fit perfect everyone loved it and wanted to know where I got it. The lady that helped me was very helpful because I was not sure about the size, she assured me that the skirt ran a little small so I got the larger size and I am glad I did. I also received it in plenty of time for my event.

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 is the only Steampunk skirt you need! Don't let the prim and proper ladies have all the fun! I chose to size up 1 size because the skirt is so form-fitting.
