I am slowly figuring this out and added this skirt to my wish list. If made would it be possible to order it in a deep berry color? A deep raspberry or blueberry would look beautiful. P.S. evergreen or forest green would look wonderful, too.
I won't even bother to bid... it is early and the bid is already high... maybe some people think that if the bid goes really high they will produce it... but in fact Chicstar are probably looking at how many bidders there was not only a bidding war between two persons...
goodness! the bidding doesn't end for a week! I don't understand why the bidding war starts so early here... putting in a 45$ bid now, a week before the auction ends, isn't going to win you the auction.
Clearly we all think highly of Chicstar and their products. :)
i LOOOOVE this! i do love velvet but the buttons really look amazing on this! i don't care if longer or shorter but this looks just perfect for me. i would buy it in black, burgundy, red and blue and even a deep green! i agree it is versatile.
Honestly, I think the skirt would sell wonderfully despite it being on the longer side. If you look to mainstream fashion right now, longer pieces are in style anyway. As Ionelee said before it's not hard to Hem, so if someone wishes to have a shorter hem it's a simple enough thing to do.
The style is great for many people, weather or not you prefer alternate fashion. It has a military style flare, which is still popular, velvet, which comes and goes but is never out of style, and can be worn easily to play up many different styles. I think it would be a sell out. The other velvet skirt that is being produced is of similar length, and that had rave reviews from the community. That skirt isn't even as versatile-- it definitely has a lolita spin on it with the pockets and suspenders.
I also measured it on myself and it comes to my knee cap exactly. I'm 5'7".
Catherine your opinion is welcomed, but to say it multiple times that you don't like it or wouldn't sell it makes it seem like you would discourage chic-star from producing it for the majority of people who do like it... that's what I believe Jamie was meaning to say in his short posting.
I know the original design says knee length but perhaps the model is on the shorter side. On me the 28 inches for the standard size comes to my knees so it would be knee length on me but if it were a little longer or shorter I wouldn't mind. It is a very pretty skirt made with Chic Star's high quality flocking velvet and I love it!
Come one. Be nice. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. And I do think it's allowed to say it more then once. I know we all do. Don't take thinks too personal. It's a fashion forum and as long as people say what they mean in a respecful way they should be able to do so without comments like the one Jamie Goff made. Peace and love.
We are here to discuss the clothes and our opinipons about the clothes. Don't come after me just because I stated my opinion twice on the skirt and it was not positive. Look back at my posts and you can see I often post twice and mostly positive. But I do not post positive comments on the clothes I do not like and think will sell badly.
I also post more then once on the ones I really like and would like to see produced. I don't see you comming after me there saying I have already said I wanted it in stock. Please respect other peoples meanings. When I do like something I can say it 1-2 or times. Beacause what Chicstar make is important to me as I make a living of it. Sometime I always voice my critical opinion as that is also good for bussiness. Just voice you opinions about the clothes rather then the people who voice there opinion. I am always respectful.
it sais above that the skirt is 28 inches (regular size) maybe take the mesurement from your waist and you will be able to see if you have to cut it or not... but I do agree that when we buy something we usually want it to be ready to wear ! ^^ ! But at 5'2" I am used to cut everything... or I wear it long ! ^^!
True,It's just a bit of a hassle, though simple enough. When I buy something, unless it's second hand, I don't usually expect to have to do anything to it. If I'm spending 50$ on something, it is a waste of my money if I have to go and fix it I think. That's just me though. I'm lazy. :P
I wonder how tall their model is. I'm 5'7", so the skirt could very well be shorter on me or someone of similar height.
It's not that hard to hem this one up to knee length. You may need to trim it, depending on how long you legs are, but that's not very difficult. You'd really just be sewing a straight line. Of course, if you wanted to sell it, that would be very inconvinient.
THIS IS GORGEOUS! OMG, my sister and i are going to be fightin for this one! No my sister and I are close but she wants it just as bad. I am SO HAPPY you made it with velvet! Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait~!
Too long or too short, it would be nicer above the knee or at ankle length. And it would be interesting in another fabric than velvet (like jersey for a more flowing look). But I really love the 6-buttons idea, it's very elegant.
