Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Spellbinding 1880s Victorian skirt featuring a sheer net overlay on a silk underlining with rows of carefully pintucked silk details along the hem and a second layer of ruffled silk at the bottom for added drama. The skirt is an absolute beauty of craftsmanship and understated elegance that must be seen to be believed - photos do not do it justice! Pair with a Victorian bodice for a long walk along the misty castle walls. Fully lined, back hook & eye closure. Eligible for layaway, please contact me for details.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →waist: 33 inches →hips: 44 inches →length: 43 inches →train length: extra 13 inches in back at longest
ESTIMATED SIZE: Large
CONDITION: Very good antique condition with some old repairs to the net overlay; it's also a touch dry and delicate. Additionally, please note this garment had some surface mold on it when it came to me -- it has been properly treated and cleaned, but as you can only be so aggressive with textiles of this age, I thought it was appropriate to note for anyone who may be sensitive. Lastly, due to this, it's been aired out extensively but may have some lingering scents from the cleaning process, and so may need another few hours upon arrival to you after traveling in a box for best freshness. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels, but appears professionally made. Appears to be made of cotton net and silk.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
