Frills and Flounces Skirt

5.0 (4 reviews)




Trompe l’oeil is fashionable on walls, so I thought I should try this look on a skirt. The Frills and Flounces design has as much detail as I could find to fill every available space on the artwork. I went through all my history of costume books and selected pages of evening gowns and textile to draw from. A sash from a Victor Stiebel 1950’s silk evening gown, Tulle frills from a Norman Hartnell evening dress from the 40’s, American furnishing fabric from 1834, lace and trimmings from my personal collection of treasures. When I finished and could add no more, I decided to add a drawing of a needle threaded with cotton and a few dress making pins so it might look as if you were still sewing and completing this project.

Available in colours Grey, Beige, Purple, Lipstick Pink, Red and Burnt Orange.

Not sure about which shape or size is for you, there is more information on this page or Contactcontact me if you need help with making a choice.


This skirt like all the MADCAT skirts, is made of a stretch woven fabric for comfort. The narrow non stretch cotton waistband is secured closed by a hook and eye, hand sewn on by me in each and every skirt. The centre back invisible zip has a fabric fly piece. This is so  the zip does not touch your skin as the glue at the base of a zip can be irritating to sensitive skins. I also like that when I am closing the zip it does  not snag my underwear. The MADCAT ribbon label is set into the inside of the waistband so that you can use the label as a hook especially when travelling and there are no coat hangers available in your room.

The yarn content of the skirts is 75%viscose (pine tree wood pulp), 21% nylon and 4% lycra.

Skirt Care Instructions: Hand wash in warm water, do not mix reds and dark coloured skirts with other washing as the dye is shed dramatically in the first wash. This does not change the colour of the skirt in any way. Skirts  can be washed in front loading washing machines on the wool programme. Line dry inside out on sunny days or spin dry and place on a radiator/ heated towel rail. Skirts can be dry cleaned as delicate.  Use a cool iron to press.  The fabric puffs up when it becomes wet and returns to flat when dry, do not iron when wet.

    I am in love with my frills and flounces skirt! The fabric is exquisite and I just love the story behind the intriguing design. This is my second skirt of Jill’s and the perfect ‘made for me fit’, means that it is an ideal wear In any season. Dressed up or down these skirts are the most comfortable to wear as they sit above the waist. Jill’s skirts also wash up easily maintainIng their shape and colour. I’ve had many people ask me where I got my original skirt and I’m sure this will continue with the second. Jill herself is also most delightful and a pleasure to do business with. She takes the utmost care, not only to ensure that her products are perfectly made but that they arrive quickly and in a beautiful condition with a personal touch.

    This was my fourth addition to my Madcat skirt collection. Usually I don’t buy any clothing online, however with already owning a Madcat skirt along with the detailed information provided by Jill on her website regarding sizing, fit, fabric, etc and the fact that it all reflected my original Madcat skirt, I felt confident in ordering another three skirts. I was having trouble deciding which skirt to order so ended up ordering three, each being a different design and colour. I am thrilled with my purchases. Jill is an excellent communicator and is lovely to deal with.
