Waist Measurement Category (required)
This extra-full skirt uses printed cotton and can be fluffed to your hearts content using a petticoat. This skirt has a seam at the front and back with a zipper and has a reinforced waist. I will add 1-2 inches to the waist measurement you give me for wiggle room (smaller than my other skirts since it doesn't have a tie). The base skirt will be finished with a bias trim in the color of your choice to help the bottom of the skirt keep its shape. The skirt is approximately 23-25 inches long from the waist. Larger sizes may shorten the skirt, so please message me ahead of time if you would like me to add fabric and keep the length at 23-25 inches long. If you would like a shorter skirt than mentioned, please mention the length you'd like it in the measurements section during checkout
If you are checking out with the base model (no hem upgrade) please choose your trim color of choice (white, gray, orange, yellow, sky blue). Make sure you still select the upgrade, though, after you tell me you don't need a colored  hem.
  • Traditional Hem - $10: Instead of a bias trim, the edges are rolled, ironed and sewn down with a traditional hem. It gives the bottom of the skirt less structure than the bias trim which keeps the edges flared out, so it's best worn with a fluffy, long petticoat
  • Lining - $15: With a petticoat, the skit is perfect on its own and, in my opinion, does not need lining (though the fabric is more on the thin side). If you plan on wearing the skirt without a petticoat or a slip, you may want the added security and structure that lining can provide. It would be standard satin dress lining that would be the same circle skirt shape and about five inches shorter than the edge of the cotton print with serged edges.

Unless noted, Darling Army pinafores are one size fits most, but actually will fit up to a large comfortably; if you want a different or custom size to be sure the skirt wraps all the way around, please leave your waist measurement in the notes section during checkout. Larger sizes can alter the design, so please visit my FAQs to see how your custom sizing can affect the outfit. Waist measurements for pinafores are recommended so that everything is proportional to your body, but are not completely necessary.
For skirts and kimono dresses, measurements are required, so please have the listed measurements ready.

Traditional pinafores have back that wrap to close at the back; they are not sealed. If you would prefer a sealed pinafore, pleased add the zipper upgrade to your cart. For this option, you must leave your waist measurement (smallest part where the skirt will tie) in the notes section when you check out. From this measurement I will ADD 2-3 inches so you can fit clothing/petticoats underneath.
If you tend to fluctuate in size, I recommend a traditional pinafore without the zipper so that it can be worn regardless of size.
Zippers cannot be added to kimono dresses and skirts since they either include zippers in the price or use elastic waists. All skirts and kimono dresses have sealed skirts.

Unless you get them from the Ready to Ship section, Darling Army designs are handmade, 100% made to order, and take an average of 2-4 weeks to complete. If construction times are longer (holiday, vacation, or family event), I will make a note of it at the top of the store as well as the email notifications when orders are announced. Please message me BEFORE you purchase if you have a time sensitive event and I'll try my best to squeeze you in and get you your pinafore in time for your event; please remember that this is not always possible since I am just one person doing all the work.
