PRE-ORDERS: There is an approximate 1-2 week delay on pre-orders (or customised orders) for these skirts. We do try to keep a number of each size in stock and will dispatch immediately if we are able to, however we keep pre-made stock to a minimum to allow for potential customisation of the garment by the purchaser.
Turn heads wearing this striking colour block A-line skirt with the appearance of silk but with the plush comfortable soft feel of velvet / velour.
SILK LOOK: With the distinct look of silk, it is only upon touching the fabric that you realise it is actually a super fine velour, which makes it the perfect alternative for those that may avoid wearing silk or satin items due to their sometimes clingy, static, “show everything” characteristics.
SIZING: This will depend on where you like your skirts to sit. Waistband measurements are based on the relaxed size of the band (not stretched) – so please choose the size that relates to your size at the position on your torso that you would like it to sit comfortably. For example – if you like to wear your skirts low (on the hips for instance), then please measure yourself there and choose your size accordingly. Please also consider the stretchiness of the material when selecting size, detailed below.
STRETCH: Please note that Velour is a 4-way stretch fabric with a typically high stretch percentage – basically it stretches considerably both crossways and lengthways. With these skirts, you can expect up to approximately 20cm of possible stretch in the waistband should you choose to wear it fitted.
COLOUR: The Navy Blue skirt shown, does appear lighter in the photographs due to the light reflection off the velour. It is actually a true Navy Blue that shimmers lighter in colour. The Wine coloured skirt shown is in a custom made shorter length and is not the typical length produced. Custom orders for length can be placed – contact us to enquire.
These skirts are also part of the first released in our “AUSTRALIAN MADE” range of garments. They are made by a very talented Mackay based seamstress – so if you have any particular requirements, such as extra length, then send us a query and we may be able to help with your special requests.
Sizing: The size of each garment in our range is unique to the specific item, and is based primarily on the most “restrictive” part of the garment. Click on the Size Guide tab for detailed garment and model measurements.
