Perhaps Lenore would have been laid to rest in her finest velvet-laden petticoat, depicted here as the Lenore Skirt by Rose Mortem. Multiple tiers of hand-pleated crushed velvet cascade down from the soft elasticized waist to the floor in a shimmering display of opulence and elegance. Whether caressing its countless velvet folds or savoring the adoration of your new admirers, the Lenore Skirt is certain to elicit a passionate response...
Please do inquire about colors you may be searching for; I will be glad to help you find your perfect color! Everything I create is custom made to your measurements. Please note that everything in my shop is handmade at the time your order is placed unless otherwise indicated. There is no extra charge for plus size! Please include the following measurements (in inches or centimeters, either one is fine) when ordering:
- Your total height
- Waist (around smallest part)
- Hips (about 3-4 inches below waistline)
Please allow about 2-3 weeks for creation time, plus shipping time, unless other arrangements have been made. If ordering for a special event, please do let me know what your deadline is so that I can be sure to meet it! :) Thank you for visiting, I look forward to creating a beautiful work of wearable art just for you.
I accept payment via Paypal or credit cards. I do not offer payment plans.
Shipping from United States
My turnaround time is generally 2-4 weeks depending on the time of year and item ordered - please feel free to check in for current creation time.
I use USPS Priority Mail for most shipments, unless other arrangements are made. All clients receive a convo with tracking # for their item when the shipment is on its way!
US and Canada shipments typically take 3-5 business days transit time (I am located in St. Louis, Missouri USA), and international shipments can take 2-6 weeks in transit depending upon the country being shipped to. If a faster shipping option is needed, I can definitely work with you! I'm very accustomed to shipping all over the world.
Customs/duties fees will be charged to clients ordering from outside of the USA. These fees are based on the value of the item ordered, and are pre-populated by Etsy when I print your shipping label. I cannot lower the value of the item you are purchasing so please check with your local postal services to find out how much your customs/duties costs will be.
Returns & Replacements: Because all items are made by hand when your order is placed, I do not accept returns. If an item has an issue of some kind, I'll be happy to fix it! Please make sure you carefully read the item's description, and double-check the measurements provided to prevent any disappointment. I care deeply about my client's satisfaction and will work with you if there is a problem!
Canceling An Order: Once your order is placed, I get to work immediately. I create your pattern by hand, and I order your fabric. Please note that unless you contact me almost immediately to cancel, I cannot cancel an order once it has been placed because of the work that starts being committed to your order almost as soon as I receive it. Don't order unless you are certain you want to proceed.
I care about Fair Trade, and I think you should, too.
We all know that most clothing sold in department stores comes from developing countries, often with labor laws and enforcement capabilities far inferior to those that we in the more privileged parts of the world would accept as humane.
We don’t always consider the materials used to create a product, though.
Some fabrics used to create clothing - even handmade clothing, created with fabric purchased in a first-world country, perhaps even from a major store - are manufactured in countries where workers have few if any rights, where working conditions are sickeningly inhumane, and where children as young as five years old are essentially sold in to manufacturing slavery by their families to pay debts. These atrocities are real. The vast majority of fabrics in the world come from China and India, both considered high-risk countries for such human rights abuses.
In light of the above, I personally interview every fabric supplier to verify that these companies are adhering to ethical standards. Wherever possible, I purchase materials from companies that are Fair Trade certified. I also use the www.wrapcompliance.org website to check on certifications. It is my hope that by taking these extra steps, even when they may be less cost effective, we can all play a role in ending man's inhumanity to man.
