One of our most stylish and iconic silhouettes, our Commander Dress, but now as a stand alone hi-low skirt with amazing pockets!
  • Side Pockets
  • Made from Spacer Scuba (Poly/Spandex) & Lined with Heavyweight Nylon/ Spandex
  • Colors may vary due to monitor settings

This skirt has great stretch. The Scuba is stretchy but plush. We do recommend ordering your normal size in our apparel in this piece. This is deceivingly stretchy. And the size chart can be tricky as it doesn't capture the stretch properly! However if you tend to be between sizes in our styles you could go with the larger size for a good fit to keep your waist from being too tight!  

We recommend dry cleaning this piece for longevity, but can wash it on cold. Hang dry to reduce piling. Scuba can pull or pill, so please be careful and don't brush up against sharp objects when wearing this piece.

Kristen is modeling the Production 4XL. She has a 47” Bust, 54” Waist, 64” Hips and is 5’5”.

Desireé is modeling the Production L. She has a 41” Bust, 35” Waist, 40” Hip, and is 5’11.

Depending on the style you can go down or up based on your own personal preference for fit and look. Different body shapes may also fit better in a different size. Our pieces tend to have very nice stretch.

If you're unsure of what to size off of, the chest for tops/dresses tends to be the most important measurement to check as our pieces have such a good stretch that even if you're more rectangular shaped with a waist nearly matching your bust, the waist of the garment will very likely stretch to fit!

Also the larger a garment gets the more it can stretch as it has even more spandex in it! So smaller sizes can stretch 3-5" while larger sizes can stretch 5-10".

Are you Petite? You likely will want to size down in spandex dresses and tops as they're so stretchy. So if our models with similar measurements to you but tall are wearing a given size you may prefer to go down one size in spandex. Knitwear cardigans and tops may be similar but if something says it has less stretch than our usual knits we wouldn't recommend sizing down. And of course additional hemming may be necessary for things with skirts. 

Are you Tall? We don't recommend sizing down as the garments will be shorter on you. We wouldn't recommend sizing up as the shoulders and body may be too large for you. We recommend ordering the size comparable models are wearing.

When we have combined sized styles it means you should still buy the size intended for your measurements. However combined sizes tend to be oversized so you can go down if you'd like a less oversized fit. (It's best to only go down if you are the smaller of the two combined sizes, if you're the second size in a combo size you may hate the tighter fit)

Care: Nearly everything we make is recommended to be hand washed on cold water and dried flat.

For BEST care: Dry Clean if you have a cleaners you like and trust.

We personally throw almost everything in the wash (often with color catcher sheets) inside out on cold; then we drape over our chairs or on a drying rack to let it all dry. This is the best way to care for most RTW Apparel.

Stretch Vinyl: Spot cleaned and sprayed with vodka if you don't want to dry clean yet (Vinyl doesn't do well around ANY kind of heat)

Spandex/Ponte de Roma: Cold Wash, hang or dry flat (hanging to dry can cause it to stretch out). We also recommend color catching sheets when washing Spandex or Ponte as color in the fabric can be shed over many washes.

Velvet: We've turned our velvet pieces inside out and washed them in delicate wash on cold and in garment bags, then laid the piece across our bed to dry. Velvet hates heat so never put in the dryer. We've been fine steaming velvet with a hand steamer. Best care is to dry clean.

Snagged or Pulled a knit piece? Get a Snag Repair Tool, which you can buy on Amazon or in your local sewing shop. This repair tool is easy to use, but there's a great tutorial video if you want help! 

Storage: Sweaters should be stored folded, never stored hung up as it can stretch and warp them. Spandex and Ponte can be stored hung up but be aware they can also stretch over time if a heavy dress or skirt.
