Lilac Chiffon Ballet Wrap Skirt
Handcrafted chiffon ballet wrap skirt
Are you looking for a ballet skirt that feels flowy, airy, and light? Do you want to stand out in your class, workshop, or audition with a unique design that no one else is wearing? Why be ordinary when you can be exquisite!
This beautiful bespoke ballet wrap skirt has been meticulously handcrafted in Somerset, England. It was designed by a ballerina who was always trying to find the perfect skirt herself, without a one size fits all approach.
The beautiful chiffon fabric has been selected for its handle and feel and for the quality of the drape and 'floatiness'. The skirts are cut on the bias (mass produced skirts are cut on the straight to use more fabric), so they will be floaty at the back, but will fall flat at the front to enhance your figure.
The skirt's satin ribbon tie material is Berisfords or Shindo, top quality ribbon that won't twist, fray, or crumple.
- Skirt is very slightly higher at the front than the back.
- Skirt tapers at the back to give an elegant line. (Length can vary slightly due to the stretch of the fabric)
- The fabric is designed to move and flow with you and therefore only the best quality chiffon is used to achieve this.
- The hems of the skirts are beautifully over-locked in threads that match the ribbons.
- Satin Ribbon: High quality ribbon elegantly ties and tumbles down at the back. It will not fray, stretch or knot at the first instance like many on the market.

Skirt - chiffon
Ribbon - satin
Chiffon is a delicate fabric and should be treated as such to extend the life of the skirt. Wash all skirts in a small net bag, ideally at 30 degrees with fabric softener to keep it soft.The bag is necessary to stop the ties from getting tangled up and pulled about in the machine.
The skirts can then be hung to dry naturally - DO NOT tumble or you will reduce the life of the skirt and it may become static!
Once washed, shake and hang out to dry, as there is no need to iron.
