Steampunk sub-culture could be called as Revived Victorian culture this is so because everything of steampunk genre is the fictional version of Victorian lifestyle. Whether it is Steampunk Clothing philosophy or fictional technology all are based on the Victorian people’s ideas for life. Steampunk's diverse range of dresses like tops, blouses, corsets, gowns, jackets, and skirts are inspired from past.

If we look at the history of Victorian skirts, they were getting wider with changing fashion. Ankle length chemise like-skirt was common during 1840’s. Gowns and skits were supported by several flounced petticoats. After a decade skirts were made flatter from front. During 1870’s bustle skirts came in fashion. During 1880’s and 90’s bustle skirts were still in use but a new design in this attire became popular and that was trumpet shaped skirt, this one fitted closely over the hip and has wasp-waist cut. The high level of skill and tailoring technique were required to stitch the Victorian skirt especially when the outfit was meant for royals. Victorian aesthetic in costumes were important which included these voluminous outfits.

Inspired by the classic and graceful designs of Victorian skirts, steampunkdressing.com has sui generis collection of steampunk skirts. Skirts in designs like trumpet, double layered, frilly multilayered, suede and butterfly are preserving the beauty of our collection. For punks the length of the skirts can be as long as floor length or as short as above the knee length. Ruffles, pleats, hitches, rouches and gatherings are used to make them voluminous. To add more volume in some skirts lace, fringes, ribbons and tassels are used.

Superior quality fabrics like silk, satin, velvet, leather, rayon, brocade, cotton poplin are used making of punk skirts. Attached bustles, hanging patterns and metal embellishing are for decorative purpose; some skirts have bustles and elastic waist for comfort wearing.
