BALLET SKIRT SIZES
Freda Silk ballet skirts come in various shapes and sizes to suit all.
Each one is individually cut out and sewn, so there will be slight variations in size.
The wrap skirts taper elegantly at the back. The length at the front will depend on how you like to wear your skirt and how much crossover you prefer.
The sizes below are based on about a 30cm crossover, so if you prefer more of a crossover, go for a larger size.
The satin elastic waist bands ensure a comfortable and secure fit.
The measurements below should give you a starting point in choosing the best size for you. If you would like something custom made that isn't already covered, this is entirely possible - just ask!

CIRCLE PULL ON SKIRT
A beautiful full circle style, 60cm length approx all round, with soft elasticated waistband. The character of chiffon and the circular cut lends a certain whimsical feel to these skirts. No two will be the same.
Sizes small (waist approx 24"); medium (waist approx 26"); large (waist approx 30").
The material varies. Mostly I use polyester chiffon, occasionally georgette and crepe which is medium weight and a little less sheer. The waist band is satin elastic.
Hems are narrowly roll folded and serged.
Full details are in the individual descriptions.
Freda Silk skirts are best carefully washed by hand or in a delicate machine wash, then a cool iron if needed. If you find your chiffon skirts attracts static, then using a fabric conditioner really helps.
