Are you ready to create magic?
Ready, set, take a deep breath and please be prepared to read every last detail, as this is a lot of information.
We've been co-creating custom Starfire Skirtbelts for the past four years, as many customers have a vision and we love helping bring it through.
The Starfire Skirt Belt is one of two gorgeous collaborations we've co-created with Noelle Faulkner of Firebird Faerie Couture! It is an exquisite marriage of our fine leather craft and Noelle's whimsical hand painted burnt edge silks! In honor of each business we've co-created a sub-brand we call "Astral Firebird."
The Starfire Skirt Belt is indeed a show stopping piece of wearable art, as there are no two that are alike!
The magic is in the attention to every intricate detail! The leather skirt and 2 pockets are made from beautiful multi-colored pieces of unique leathers and delicate leaf like scalloped pockets with stitch detail.
You get to choose the color palette of your skirt belt starting with the colorful flowing burnt edge silks.
We further embellish each skirt belt with french lace and the highest quality decorative etched rivets and buckles. Even the skirt belt straps are finished with inlaid lace as a final detail.
Choose your hardware, your leathers colors and thread colors.
Designed with adjustable straps making it so it will fit a range of bodies. Within each of the sizes below their is quite a bit of size flexibility. Our skirt belts come in XS/S, S/M, M/L, L/XL & XXL. See our Sizing Chart below to determine the best size for you.
HOW TO SELECT YOUR SILKS |
We always start with the silks. Perhaps you already know exactly what color palette you want or maybe you need some inspiration? Take a look at Noelle's website, firebirdfae.com to get a sense of the color options available. There are no color combinations that cannot be done. However it is easiest if you stick to a maximum of 3 colors, unless you want Rainbow silks.
When envisioning the colors of your skirt think of the skirt split into 3 sections: Top, Middle and Bottom. Envision the Top color bleeding into the middle color and the middle color bleeding into the bottom color.
An example would be:
Top: Dark Teal
They always turn out exquisite and one of a kind.
NOW LET'S CHOOSE YOUR LEATHERS |
First things first, the leather skirt belt looks best if a maximum of 3 colors are selected. Alternately you can tell me if you want a variety of different leathers in one color. Although, I do suggest a minimum of 2 colors for nice contrast. At checkout you will specify all the various elements you want and let me know if there are any specifics you need help deciding on. I often, layout a few versions of each skirtbelt and send customers pictures so they can choose which they like best.
Available Italian Floral Embossed Leathers:
Dark Brown Floral
Additionally we have many other specialty/one off leathers we can send you pictures of, but the above list is a good beginning, as we always have access to these leathers.
SELECT YOUR HARDWARE |
Tarnished Brass w/Copper
Silver Plated Nickel
Silver Plated Nickel w/Gunmetal
Tarnished Brass w/Gold (Non-tarnished Brass)
SELECT LACE COLOR/S AND THREAD COLOR/S |
We have most colors available and you can suggest what you think would look best. If you are not sure then I always encourage customers to trust my color sense, as I will be able to choose what colors look best when the entire skirt belt is laid out, and remember I'll send you a picture to make sure you like how it looks. You can always change things at that point.
HOW TO SELECT THE BEST SIZE |
My first question for you is where do you wear your skirts? At your true waist or lower down on your hips. It's important to know this information, so you know where to measure yourself. Some of you might be in-between sizes and that is okay. There are a few things to consider when thinking about fit and sizing. The first thing is too understand what my vision was as the pattern maker. I designed this skirt belt to have the straps open 4-6" in the front, to give it a strappy sexy look. Which is what makes the skirt have so much adjustability. Some customers really like the skirt to completely shut in the front, if that's you, then you might need to size up. When you look at the following sizing chart, keep in mind that the smallest waist measurement is with the skirt completely shut and the bigger waist measurement is with the straps opened up to 6". If you get stuck or want my help, I am happy to help you troubleshoot the sizing.
Lastly, it is important to know that there are two ways to wear your skirt belt. The 1st mode of wear is with straps in front, which places the smaller triangle double pocket on the side of your hip and places the large leaf pocket on the booty. 2nd mode of wear, the straps are on the side, showing off the hip and legs, while placing the bigger pocket at the hip and the small triangle double pocket to the front. I personally love the 2nd mode. Pocket wise you have the perfect amount of room in the small double pocket for an ID, credit card, cash, lip balm and a phone in the big pocket.
Can be worn alone, with booty shorts, leggings, layered over a dress or longer skirt. It is a very versatile design!
