Dare Mighty Things with a soft, flared skater skirt printed with the now-iconic pattern of the Mars 2020 descent parachute that successfully landed the Perseverance Rover on February 18, 2021. Rumor has it that an unofficial JPL slogan is hidden in code in the parachute. Skirt designed by Alex Knight and Erin Winick of Sci Chic - Erin's out-of-this-world science communication on Instagram or Tik Tok!
Worried the skirt might be a bit short? Pair it with Mars 2020 Jezero Crater Shorts!
Skirt is 82% polyester, 18% spandex, approximately mid-thigh length with elastic waistband, overlock seams, and coverstitch hemline. Blank product components sourced from China or Lithuania.

Material may not be to everyone's liking, so unless you are certain you will like the item, I would not recommend buying it. When I requested a return, the response from Emily was that they would not accept the return of an item for fabric reasons even if it was unworn and in original packaging.
We're very sorry that you didn't like this skirt. Unfortunately we are not able to accept returns on our made-to-order products unless you received an incorrect or damaged item.
I wrote the review below but wanted to upgrade my rating to five stars because the customer service for this small business is excellent. They allowed me to exchange my skirt for a larger size. The fabric and construction are excellent, but the size chart for this item is inaccurate.
It’s a skater skirt— it only has one measurement that matters— the waist. My medium should fit a 28” waist but is snug even for an XS 25” waist. I popped open the seam allowance in the back, but the elastic is sewn directly into the seam all the way around and can’t be lengthened. I put it in a stretcher for a week but it’s good elastic.
Thanks for your feedback, Judy! We've updated the product listings to let everyone know we recommend sizing up. We're happy to exchange your skirt and make sure you are 100% satisfied with your space fashion!
My friend showed me the viral reddit post about it and It was love at first sight! I decided to order the skirt for my birthday, it was the best decision ever! The material is really good quality, no need for ironing. It fits perfectly and it's extremely fun. BEST purchase of mine this year for sure!
The skirt is adorable and fits perfectly. It's also going to become one of my skirts that I use when I need to be brave. Finally that task of emailing someone wasn't so hard when I was wearing a skirt based on a parachute that successfully landed on Mars.
Dare mighty things and look adorable while doing them!
