Cute patterned skirt
The pattern caught my eye on the website. It's a great fit, I love the flared A-line shape.
The colours are a lot brighter in real life than in the picture on the website, but I love bright colours so was happy with that.
I'm 5'3" and it reaches just above my knee - the perfect length for me.
It would go with a variety of different coloured tops, including dark green to match the background, or pink or blue to match the pattern.

Beware if you're tall!!
Despite loving the colours and pattern of this skirt, it really wasn't for me. It is designed for someone 5"7 or less - at 5"9 I felt ridiculous in it and had to send it back.
I agree with the reviewer who said the colours are brighter in reality... a little too bright. It looked more mellow and autumnal in the picture, conkers and rusty leaves conjured up, but a little brash in the flesh. However, I'd have kept it if it were a longer length.
How about some more lovely ankle skimming skirts for autumn, White Stuff? Don't forget us tall girls when the designs are in process!

This skirt sits about 5cm above the knee on someone 1.73m tall and is true to size. It is made from a light viscose with a polyester lining ( a minus point for me, as I don't like polyester, a viscose lining would have been much better). It has a wide waistband and is ruffled under the waistband and falls in folds without being voluminous. It would look nice with a longer jumper, which covers the bottom, so that is only peeks out at the bottom ,like the Farthing jumper. The print is very colourful, more than the picture on the website suggests. The basic colour is I think a dark navy, which looks almost black, with bright teal and pink leaves and some red-brown foxes. There is some nice crochet detailing at the waistband and at the hem.
It has no pockets and a side zip.
