Bessie Skirts!
Made to orderOnly!
You can currently order stock in your size at or purchase one at Studio 508 in Half Moon Bay, but if you cant get there - you can place your order here and I will make you one. Let me know if you are in need of combining sizes or adding/subtracting length.

This skirt was designed to be versatile in the fact that there are many options to create a look for any occasion with it! It has a waistband that covers the torso for comfort or modesty sake - or can be folded down over the hips for a fun, flirty look! Along the 3" hem-band are 7 loops that can be looped over 3 buttons at the hip! There is one button at center back and one on each side of the hip.....numerous looks can be achieved this way by hiking up or wrapping the skirt around you. They have even been worn as pants! The back is longer than the front and may drag on or skim the floor to allow for creating a look for day, evening, or dance performance! I use a medium weight cotton Lycra. The hem band gives the fabric a good drape that the fabric would otherwise not allow. The side panel design adds for a vintage appeal and for a look with no annoying side seams! This was designed for a very specific, dramatic look. You'll look like a million dollars in this skirt! I ship world-wide!

Directions For Ordering:
Get out your tape measure and compare your measurements with my size chart. Pick out the closest size to you. If there needs to be no adjustments, I will just make your size of choice and send it to you. If you need a shorter or longer length or are a combination of sizes, put those in a convo for me, order the size closest to you and I will make it for you in 3-4 weeks! (If you have to measure yourself, please do not bend over to get your skirt lengths!)

I work in a smoke free studio, but have a couple of kitties. I do my best to keep the lint off the black fabric, but we might find a stray hair or two!

What a gorgeous skirt! This skirt really does flatter women of all shapes and sizes and mine fits like a glove. <3 Plus, Kathleen is a total sweetheart and so, so helpful in making sure that you get a piece that really fits you (even down to making sure you measure yourself correctly). Definitely highly recommended!

Absolutely stunning! There are so many ways to wear it that I spent almost 40 minutes playing with it in front of the mirror right after I took it out from the packing! This is amazing!!!
