In other words, they had a bit of gathering at the waist and were very flared at the hem. The fabrics (linen, satin, cotton, velvet, silk, ...) used to make these skirts are made with plain colors that highlight the work of flocking and accumulation of braids. The Steampunk skirt is decorated with a gradient flounce.

The style of the Steampunk skirt
Although the Steampunk style is inspired by the Victorian era, it does not completely copy the skirts of that period. Just like any other look, you can make your garment original by using your imagination. It is a vintage style that gives you a variety of possibilities in terms of material selection.
To stay in the spirit of the Steampunk style, you should pair your short skirts with women's clothing such as a blouse, shirt, strapless, sleeveless turtleneck, etc. These tops should be adorned with lace or a ruffle on the front. Nevertheless, they should not be too low-cut, as Victorian women did not expose their breasts much.
As for the sleeves, they should be long with long stitches. You can opt for short sleeves, but only if they are puffy. If you want to stand out and really look like Victorian women, wear your Steampunk skirt with a close-fitting corset with lace straps or a sexy top with long sleeves. Pair your outfit with heels like ankle boots, wedges or heeled sandals.
