Skirt Styles

A full skirt- often complete with crinoline petticoats- is charming, dramatic and feminine. The contrast created between the fullness of the skirt at the hem and the size of the waist are very flattering to the female proportions. This skirt shape is the hallmark of the mid-century "New Look".

You can get the same full vintage drama from a 3/4 circle skirt and it is flattering on all figures. The model above is wearing a 3/4 circle skirt.

The dresses shown below are full circle skirts. If you are very tall and thin, or if you like to swing dance and swing your skirt out into a complete, flat circle, the full circle skirt may be for you.

Most of our customers prefer the 3/4 circle due to it's flattering degree of volume.

Sarong Skirt Style

The sarong skirt was born in Hawaii in the 50’s as part of the
Golden Years of Hawaiian styles, a fashion trend especially big in
the US but that echoed around the world. The Hawaiian sarong
skirt was inspired by traditional, genuine sarongs worn in traditional
dress of Southeast Asia and the Pacific rim.

Our sarong skirts fit close to the body and are tapered at the
bottom with draping going diagonally across the front of the body in a
flattering diagonal drape. They flatter most figures, except figures with 7"or less difference between to waist and the hips; these gals should wear full skirt styles. Available also at ankle length, with and without the hip tie.
