24" Tapered

 Be playful and daring with a Mid Tapered (Slim) 24"

 Tapered Skirts-

  • Skirt is cut higher at the front and crosses at an 'X' angle infront of the dancer's knee.
  • Skirt tapers to a longer length at the back, (23-25") below the knee.
  • The fabrics are designed to move and flow with you and so we use only the best quality chiffons and georgettes.
  • The hems of the skirts are beautifully over-locked in threads that match the ribbons. You may request to have a specific colour of ribbon/elastic if you desire.

Slim Cut VS Regular Cut

Slim Cut = Less fabric so that the skirt falls closer to the body and creates a slimmer silouette. ( a favourite among professional dancers )

Reglar Cut = A cut with more fabric means you have more space over the hips and a floatier effect on the skirt. ( ideal for an hourglass figure or for those with smaller waists )

WAIST TIES 

  • Satin Ribbon: High quality Berrisford or Shindo ribbon, which elegantly ties and tumbles down at the back. It will not fray, stretch or knot at the first instance like many on the market!
  • Elastic: Our comfortable elastic comes in multiple colours and shades to match every skirt and will assure that your skirt stays in place and won't move around while you're dancing. This is especially good for partnering work.
  • Velvet Elastic: This is our most luxurious tie. It goes especially well with our 'Burnout chiffons' (Check fabric page) which all feature velvet in their designs.

All skirts are cut on the BIAS to allow the rise and fall of the fabric to sculpt the dancer's movement - we do not skimp on fabric!

SIZING 

The sizing on my wrap around ballet skirts are determined by the width on the waist and allows for an approximate 7" cross-over. The UK sizes are based on the most common store dress size measurements and are as follows:

UK size 2 (20-21" waist)

UK Size 4 (22-23" waist)

UK Size 6 (24-25" waist)

UK Size 8 (26-27" waist)

UK Size 10 (28-29" waist)

UK Size 12 (30-31" waist)

UK Size 14 (32-33" waist)

UK Size 16 (34-35" waist)

 

I want you to be completely happy with your purchase, so please let me know if you feel otherwise and I will always ensure to get the right skirt for you and I promise to answer back the same day !!

We can CUSTOM ORDER specific lengths for a pattern surcharge of £5.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

My skirts are strong and durable and can be happily washed at 30 degrees in the washing machine in a washing bag (this prevents the ribbons from getting tangled up with everything else). Once washed, shake and hang out to dry as there is no need to iron.
