CARTRIDGE-PLEATED BALLGOWN SKIRT

Sheri, our team's most experienced and wonderfully talented costumer and corsetmaker produces this beautiful, supremely full 6, 7, or even 8-yard ballgown skirt seen here in pink satin. Wearing this stunning skirt can make anyone feel like a fairy princess, reported by our model Chablis, in a stunning image taken by Jeanette Vonier/Elegant Images Photography (2000); overbust Victorian corset by Sheri.

Sheri cartridge pleats the skirt (many tiny, even 1/2" pleats in the fabric to obtain maximum fullness and grandeur). A wide grograin ribbon waistband is grommeted with ties for adjustability. You will certainly want to wear a hoop or full netting petticoat underneath to show the skirt's spectacular fullness.

Regarding type of fabric available, if produced in changeable taffeta (the navy and black skirts seen below) , the skirt rustles as you dance or walk. Changeable taffeta appears to be one color if viewed in one direction and another color if viewed in another direction. Lighter-weight polysatin (such as the pink skirt shown right and magenta and forest green skirts shown below, worn below with Victorian corsets by Sue Nice) or crinkle satin. are other excellent fabric choices, allowing for the skirt to "float" as you walk. If you desire an exact match with a shade or hue you have in mind, please tell us so below and mail a color swatch to: 2912 Diamond St., Ste. 239, San Francisco, CA 94131.

Regarding length, we suggest you measure while standing in your stocking feet. You need a few inches of distance above the floor and wearing shoes or heels will provide the appropriate distance. Typical production time is 6-8 weeks depending on the season, or sooner with rush fee. Please inquire. (Skirt, 6 yards, modeled below in forest green polysatin. Skirt, 8 yards, modeled right by Chablis, in pink polysatin.) Our price does not include fabric but you may inquire about the additional cost by email, or choose to provide your own.

Please choose and order your corset from our Fundamental or Elegant Lines of corsetry.
