Fit Questions

I am unsure of my size. What should I do?
If you haven't bought clothes in a long while, you may be unsure of what your size is. Think of what sizes you would pull from a retail store to try on in the dressing room. It may be good to take a look in your closet to see what you have been wearing comfortably over the last few weeks. If you only have only bought S, M, L, XL lately and really don't know where to begin...call us! The shop number is ALL OVER the website.
Where is the skirt supposed to sit around my waist?
The skirt should be sit at your waist where you are most comfortable. This location is typically near or around the belly button. The shorter or curvier you are, the closer to the belly button your waistline will be. If you are longer waisted and like your clothing to sit low and off your stomach, it can sit 1-1.5 inches below your belly button.
What should I do if my skirt shifts up or twists when I walk or sit down?
This typically means that either the waist or the hip is too small, causing your skirt to kick up off your waist or hips. You will need to simply take a picture of your skirt shifting up from the front, side, and back then text these to the shop (615-504-8785). From here we will recall your skirt to make the proper alterations to fix the shifting or twisting issues. We will then record your new measurements for future orders.
Can I add additional tapering at the hem of my skirt?
Yes, you can! When placing your order there is a notes section. Just let us know if you would like any special tapering!
I am plus size and buy larger than an 18. Can you make me a skirt?
You bet we can! Our Fit Kits have a range of sizes which go up to a 56" Hip. If you are greater than a 56" hip you will want to make an appointment to come into the shop.  Whether you live in the greater Nashville area or are just in town for a visit, you can contact us to schedule a fitting at the studio- we can take all the measurements we need to make your custom skirt!
How does the length work?
When you try on the Fit Skirt, it is hemmed closely to where someone of your height would generally expect your skirt length to be. From the Fit Skirt, you can sit in a chair and walk around to see if we have overshot or undershot your ideal length. When Suzanne calls to review your kit, just let her know to raise or shorten and by how much.
If I bought my own fabric, can you make me a skirt?
Sevier Skirts has an ever-growing assortment of beautiful fabrics and only make skirts from the fabrics sourced by our team. We do understand though, the importance of touching and seeing up-close the materials. To get a better idea of the fabrics you can choose from, request a FREE Swatch Kit today! 
Can I have a skirt made for my daughter who is hard to fit?
You bet! Often times teenage and preteen fit nicely into our skirts. You may find it easier to be directed by Suzanne when shopping for someone else, so just call the shop number on the website!
What does shape have to do with fit?
Shape has everything to do with fit! If someone is shaped with no hips, but is wearing a skirt made for someone that has hips, it will be unflattering and not show off her best asset which is her small tush and good legs. Same goes for the customer that is curvy and has hips. If she wears a skirt that does not have room for her hips, the skirt will be tight across the lap and shift up and twist.

After your skirt leaves our shop, it is the responsibility of the courier service to safely deliver it to your front door or mailbox. If the address you provided us matches the address on the tracking and you fear your skirt has been misplaced during shipment, please contact the courier’s customer service number and begin a claim.
My skirt was delivered to the wrong address, what should I do?
If you find that the address we shipped to is not the same as the shipping address you provided us at purchase, we will quickly replace your skirt and ship to the address you provided us. If the address you provided us was incorrect, you will need to begin a claim with the courier service to have your skirt re-directed to your home. If your Sevier Skirt is mistakenly shipped to the incorrect address, we will make sure to track down and retrieve the package in order to get your skirt to you as quickly as possible.
