Skirts

Stock or standard MADCAT skirts come in four NZ/UK sizes, and two styles; straight or flared. We also have a made-to-measure service.

Small usual size 8-10  (USA 6-8); length 58cm

Medium usual size 12-14  (USA 10-12); length 60cm

Large usual size 16  (USA14); length 62-63cm

Rubens usual size 18  (USA 16); length 62-63cm

The length can be adjusted free of charge if you wish to go shorter, or lengthen between 10-15 cm. Any longer than this, please email Jill for a quote.

MADCAT flared skirts are for those with a fuller hip to waist measurement and look great with short fitted tops.

MADCAT straight skirts are cut close to the hip size and more suitable for wearing with long tops.

A made-to-measure service is also available; simply email Jill and she will talk you through how to take your measurements. Jill will then cut a pattern for your body size (this incurs a one-off cost of $25) and then tailor-make your skirt for the standard skirt price. This is part of the MADCAT service.

Made-to-measure service

All MADCAT skirts in the online store are available through our made-to-measure service.

Please take your measurements as follows, and if you get stuck then please call Jill on 03 539 1355 and she will talk you through the process.

WAIST– This is the smallest horizontal measurement between your bust and your hip line. Your skirt will be made to this measurement.

HIP -This is the widest horizontal measurement over your bottom about 20 cm / 8″ below your waist. A little is added to this measurement when we cut the skirt so that it does not cling to your figure.

LENGTH – This is taken down your outside leg or side seam from your waist to the finished edge of your skirt.

Please email Jill or phone NZ +64 3 539 1355 to place your order. This made-to-measure service can be done remotely, but requires one telephone call to discuss the best skirt shape for you.

Once we have your measurements, we will then cut a pattern for your body size (this incurs a one-off cost of $25) and then tailor-make your skirt for the standard skirt price. This is part of the MADCAT service.

The length can be adjusted free of charge if you wish to go shorter, or lengthen between 10-15 cm. For extra long skirts, please email Jill or phone for a quote.

If you have already had a pattern for a MADCAT skirt created for you in the past three years please email us and we can access your individualised pattern.

Please note the Adam and Tapa Pacifica textiles are only available as straight skirts as the horizontal lines need to be parallel to the straight finished edge of the hem.

Corsets

As well as our made-to-measure service, we stock a comprehensive range of different sized corsets ready for you to try on in our studio – from a UK/NZ super small (6-8) to a UK/NZ triple Rubens (24-26).

It’s exciting to see the transformation when trying on a corset for the first time. You will just love the defined waist and timelessly-chic hourglass shape that wearing one of our corsets provides.
