I'm making it in a super luscious, very high quality 4 way stretch velvet. This WILL become a staple in your costuming wardrobe, pretty much guaranteed.
Low riding skirt is extremely flattering, has a bit of a train in the back, and accentuates yer tushie in great ways.
Model in the photos is the incomparable Vulgaire Turpentine, a multi-talented artist. You can find her here: http://www.vulgaireart.com/

IF there is something you have in mind color-wise that you don't see here, CONVO ME. We can work out something special just for you.
PLEASE include your first and a second choice color. Suppliers being what they are, sometimes they run out of things, so your skirt will show up in the second choice color if your first choice is not available. IF your skirt absolutely must be in your first choice color, please tell me, and we'll just wait for my supplier to get more in. Sometimes, it's worth the wait.
A single wide row or double narrow row of matching velvet ruffles around the bottom will add a mere $36 to your total. Please add to your cart here:
Puddle Jumper Hook to keep the train up and out of harms way (feet, dirt, puddles, etc.), or for a bit of a bustle...Looks great layered over another skirt or a pair of fancy pants. .

You will receive a 1 yard square of matching fabric if you add this to your cart:
MADE TO ORDER.
Ladies, PLEASE get help with these measurements, because that's what I'll be working with.
Measurements I will need include:
HIPS: Your low hip (from the top of where you would wear a belly dance belt, usually right around your hipbone or just below, depending on preference).
BOOTIE: Around the widest point of your tush.
TUMMY: from right hip to left hip. around the front. Also from right hipbone to left hipbone.
HIP 2 FLOOR: (from where you took your low hip) to the floor.
THIGHS: Around the widest point of your thighs.
Also, I'm going to need to know (objectively) where you carry your weight (stomach, hips, butt, thighs, etc) and (EXTREMELY helpful here) a full length photo of you in body conscious clothing (yoga pants or whatever). Because you're not here for me to drape the skirt on, I need as much reference as I can get so that I can make adjustments to my pattern as necessary for your garment to fit as well as it can.
Please view my shop policies, and as always, PLEASE don't hesitate to contact me for any questions you might have.
Remember, ladies: This is custom, not ready-to-wear. It will take AT LEAST a month or more as there is lil' bit of a line ahead of you - the wait can be up to 4 months depending on my workload. I may have the fabric in stock, sometimes I have to order it from east cupcake, Timbuktu, and sometimes I have to drive a ways to purchase the stuff. I rarely have much fabric in stock, I purchase separately for each order at this time.
Rush orders (anything less than a month) on custom made mean that I order the fabric with rush shipping, that I push your order ahead of everyone elses, and that I send it to you with the quickness. All that costs a pretty penny, (especially if you're not in the U.S) so please, don't let it come as a surprise if your rush fee is upwards of 40% of your total, plus shipping.
I am planning on doing limited run colors and styles in the future, so keep an eye out.
Thank you so much.
