Lovely skirt but not on me
I really wanted to love this skirt and it is beautiful (although more on the turqoise than the teal end of the spectrum) - the bright pink stitching is eye-catching and the quality of the fabric is good - thick enough but with a bit of stretch. However, if you have any tummy at all, it is really not flattering as it pulls tightly over that. With regret, because I usually love White stuff skirts and wear them for years - it is going back for somebody else to love!

This skirt goes to about 2cm above the knee on someone 1.73m tall. It is made from a textured medium heavy cotton and has a lining. The colours are great: teal, dark teal and orange/red stitching. Nice ethnic inspired print, it is great to have something at WS which isn't butterflies,parrots or flowers for a change. It has two side pockets and a side zip. It is very slightly a-line. It is true to size when you wear it at the hips. When you wear it at the waist like me, then one size down is a better fit.
This would go nicely with a t-shirt in a calypso colour.

Fun comfortable skirt!
This skirt is such a lovely colour and the pattern and details are really gorgeous. It is made out of a slightly thicker canvas-like material than many summer skirts, and so also works great in the spring when it is a little chillier.
The stretch makes it that little bit more comfortable and improves the fit. The pockets are a bit more noticeable on me, but that's probably because they are a really decent size. I usually go for skirts which fall just above my knee. This one falls just below (I am short) but looks very flattering.
