Default features of this skirt:
* 7 full circle tulle layers, cut and assembled in a unique way specific for this skirt only.
* Each tulle circle is finished with a horsehair braid.
* Gathered at the waist.
* Voluminous silhouette, without any specific shape, changes in motion greatly, lots of various length edges and cascading elements all over the skirt.
* Non hand dyeable, but a vast color selection available and you can create your own effect, or get the skirt in just all one color as a shown skirt in black with up to 4 colors of horsehair braids.
* Satin lining in half circle, wide and flowing.
* Features a train of 25cm or 10", can be a little longer or shorter, or none at all by request.
* Tailored satin waistband, 1.5" or 4cm waistband by default.
* Closure: back zipper and three black buttons.
* Shown coloring: tulle color: black; horsehair braid featured colors: iridescent purple, violet, navy blue and blue. These colors are NOT matching our hand dyed tulle palettes, these are a different tulle type and do come in those colors already. You can choose the color variation "as pictured" to get the same combination as the skirt shown in the listing, or select "different mix" and choose every color for the skirt, using our palette. Fully ivory, fully white or black are also available.
Important disclaimer regarding the Borealis skirt: the horsehair braids are connected via sticky interface, layered one on top of another and ironed to stick. You may see these connections as the skirt moves and shifts, and especially up close. It should not however, cause any issues regarding the "big picture" of the skirt or ever show in any on the wedding photos, of course. Just something that needs to be said as that connection is not something we ourselves love and you can definitely see those upon close inspection of the skirt, but so far, we have not been able to come up with a seamless horsehair connection.

Even though we make everything to your measurements, please do not be under impression that local alterations are guaranteed to not be needed. That is not at all the case as there are many reasons something does fit just right out of the bag, like: measurements taken incorrectly (we take measures such as asking for measuring photos but even that isn't a 100% foolproof method), measurements change in time due to weight loss or gain, posture related things (open back bodysuits are affected the most), and lastly, of course, we too can make a mistake and if we do we will solve it, here's how to address it:
HOW TO SUBMIT A CLAIM WHEN SOMETHING DOESN'T FIT TO A GREAT EXTENT:
Please contact us within a week post delivery for a solution. A statement "this garment piece doesn't fit" is unfortunately not a claim we can consider. If, for example, your skirt is too short for you, too wide, or too narrow, please kindly measure it, compare it to the measurements you gave us, and if a discrepancy is indeed found, please send us photos that show it (measuring tape around your body, measuring tape across the garment (we are happy to tell you how to measure the garment if you are not sure and need assistance). If we indeed are to blame for the ill fitting garment, beyond the extent of expected nips and tucks on the bodysuit or a tight fitting top we covered before, we will absolutely be of service of solving the problem. We will either pay for alterations on your end, send you a new garment or just a part of it (e.g, new sleeves), take it back to alter ourselves.
An item such as a bodysuit, especially open back one might be somewhat ill fitting right out of the bag regardless of all measurements being correct and it's just nobody's fault, it just requires local alterations. Posture alone is important for those, the arch of the back is important for those - those things can only be assessed during a real life fitting, as well as body asymmetry too. Sometimes brides send us their right and left measurements and they differ greatly - but actually we cannot address that. We will make the garment symmetrical, based on the larger side and the rest should be dealt with locally during a fitting. This is normal and should be expected.
We are always happy to advise on where we think a nip or a tuck should occur on your garment, or how to fix a specific issue (a bunching back, for example), so please ask anytime, send photos and we will provide assistance before you head to the local tailor, so you have some idea on what you're asking for once you get there.
I hope this answers the question what we are and are not liable for in regards of fit and how to address it with us. In any case - we ask you to kindly have your expectations realistic - local alterations should overall be expected when a top is involved in the purchase. Please do account for an extra 200 USD or so for them when purchasing a two piece wedding dress online without a single fitting.
Skirts alone are very unlikely to need alterations, and if they do, it's as simple as taking it in and hemming it. But we do not advise to add "extra for the length just in case", because if you do - you will have to have it hemmed, and some skirts have gorgeous hidden seams or ombre at the bottom and you would be doing it at the expense of those features.
Regarding color matching to items from other shops: the only way to guarantee that we make an exact matching garment (be it ivory, white, or another color) to another garment made elsewhere is to mail us a real life sample or that garment itself, that would safely be returned to you together with it's 100% matching other half. Please do not order our "ivory" to match other shops "ivory" without prior consultation - it is not guaranteed that everyone's "ivory" is the same exact matching shade, everyone may have different ones. The ivory we use is light and sometimes more likely to match another vendors "off white" than a true, deeper, more yellow ivory.
