frequently asked questions
If you are excited about a certain style but either see a fabric on a differnt listing or want something different altogether then please choose the custom skirt option. I will work with you to make you your perfect skirt and there is no additional cost for the custom option.
Definitley don’t hesitate to ask about it. Sometimes I buy a large amount of fabric and may have enough left to make a skirt just like it for you. Most often though, the pieces I make are one of a kind. I will do my best to try and track down that fabric or find a fabric that is similar. I will always make sure that any fabric I find is what you want. My goal is to make you your new favorite skirt that you will want to wear for many years.
Because each skirt is made to order I cannot accept returns for a refund. I will however work to make it right in case of fit issues. Please be sure to follow step by step how to measure your body or choose a garment you have that fits well and measure the waist of it.
I am very careful before making a skirt to make sure the colors are as accurate as possible on my website and to show the scale of all of the fabric prints. I also measure 2 to 3 times before cutting to make sure that all pieces of your skirt are cut accurately.
If your skirt arrives and it really doesn’t fit please contact me within three days of receiving it so we can work together to solve the problem.

If you have chosen a style, your size and the fabric, then I will get right to work on your perfect skirt. I usually have the skirt made and in the mail within 7 to 10 days. If you have chosen the custom option I will send you an email within 24 hours of your order. The email will have questions about what exactly you are looking for and it will ask for a few measurements with instructions for how to measure your self. After that, we may set up a video call through Facebook or Zoom so that we can talk about fabrics. I have lots of fabrics on hand and have many sources so that if it is not in my studio I can find the perfect color and print for you.
There are two shipping options. One is flat rate priority shipping and the other is free shipping. I use the USPS to ship all of my skirts. I have found them to be the most affordable and reliable option for packages of this size.
Absolutely yes. Let em tell you all the boring details.
These skirts are made from the best materials I can get. Quality fabric is expensive and the skirts I make have a lot of fabric in each one. The midi length wrap skirt has over 4.5 yards in each skirt.
Each seam is sewn twice. This is so that all raw edges are enclosed resulting in 2 benefits. 1. the inside of the skirt looks as beautiful as the outside and it adds extra strength to the seams. The strength guarantees that you will be wearing this skirt for years and years. I have skirts I have made for myself using these methods that I have been wearing regularly for over 8 years. If you figure out the cost per wear over time and compare to other skirts you might buy it works out to a very attractive price.
All of the waist bands are sewn by hand by me. This results in a beautiful couture finish as well as a waist band that is sturdy and will stand up to a lot of wear.
If you take care of your skirt you will be wearing it happily for many many years.
