$97 – $100
You’ll feel like a Steampunk princess in this beautiful handmade skirt. It’s a bustle design – made of rustling metallic copper taffeta fabric, with gathers across the front, and side pleats adorned with large flirty bows. The back is full enough to fit a full bustle petticoat underneath, and the hem is trimmed in ruffled black lace for just a bit of extra sass.
If you love Steampunk, but don’t want to be wearing the same stereotypical brown as everyone else, copper is the perfect color for you!
There are so many ways to wear this skirt! Worn by itself, it’s a cute Victorian miniskirt look. Wear over a petticoat, and it’s more elegant – adorably lolita at knee to tea length, or very ladylike with a full length petticoat.
In the photo below, I’m wearing it with fishnet lace stockings and my full length bustle petticoat:
The first time I make a batch of skirts, I’ll make just one per size – Small, Medium, and Large, to test the waters. If it’s popular, I make more, and the next time, I’ll make sizes XS thru 2X, or S thru XL, depending on how much spare time I have in my schedule. I also offer this skirt made-to-measure, if you catch me when I’m about to start cutting and sewing a new batch.
