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 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!

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Perfect Fit
The skirt is beautiful! Exactly as it appears in the pictures, but perhaps even prettier in person. The quality of the fabric and stitching are very good, and thanks to the very accurate sizing chart, it fits perfectly! (I am usually reluctant to purchase clothes online, because I am hard to fit.)

I absolutely love this skirt! It will be perfect for a steampunk themed wedding that I'll be attending next month!

I love my skirt, I was afraid that it wouldn't fit well since i'm a larger person. The color also matches well with my idea for a Steampunk costume.

Great Quality
I could not be happier with my marguerite skirt. The quality of the fabric and construction (fully lined) exceeded my expectations. Best of all, the sizing was spot on! Halloween is going to be fun.....

Beautiful skirt and is adjustable which is a big value for multiple styles with just one skirt.

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!

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.

Marguerite Skirt in black

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!
