The Bustle Skirt

We love Victorian styles. But let’s face it, most of them are just not practical.

Could you wear a gown with a bustle to your work, or out to a bar, to a wedding as a guest, or out dancing? Not readily.

So how can you bring a little bit of steampunk into your life without suddenly bringing too much discomfort?

Something like this skirt is perfect. It is the everyday bustle skirt. No crinoline, no hoops. Just an attractive bustle on a durable and simple skirt.

The fabric for the one shown is an iridescent cotton blend that is somewhat wrinkle resistant and washable. But since we have a menswear store as well, consider having it made in a black wool suiting, or even in pinstripes.

The price is only $96 for most fabrics and in any size. We can also make a matching vest or peplum jacket as well. Think Victorian plus business wear….

Satin Circle Skirts

Our sportswear line, which we sell on Etsy and in other shops, is called Vigilante Laboratories.

Each piece is designed and made by Lianna K. and A.J. Machete. This is one of the original VigilanteLabs pieces, and one of the most popular. Cut from iridescent satin with almost gothic styling to the yokes, the hem length is immense, over 100″ in most sizes.

Like all of our pieces, you can customize it in any way you want. For $68 we can make it in any size in a shimmer satin and for a bit more we can make it in any color of silk charmeuse.

You can purchase the skirt now as a custom order in our Etsy store or can contact Lianna at superhero@vigilantelabs.com to discuss making the skirt in a different type of fabric.

Of course we can make almost anything you would like. So just contact us if you have a unique idea for something completely custom.
