KNIT ME QUICK PATTERN SKIRT
Too big! And, hot pink spoils it for me...
Why, oh why, does WS consistently make skirts that are at least one size bigger than they should be in reality?! It's a waste of time, WS, having a size guide for your clothing when it bears no relation to what you produce! The size 10 in this skirt is more like a size 12, a generous one! I am a 10 and the 10 was almost slipping off my hips! Knowing from experience that your sizing is usually way out, I tried for ages to source an 8. Alas, to no avail. I finally caved and bought a 10 when I spotted it on another retailer's site, hoping the other reviews might be a little exaggerated, but no! Every one is right!
The skirt is warm, well constructed and high quality so it is a shame WS let themselves down with sizing issues. Maybe WS could start putting individual measurements down for each item in each size, so buyers can make a better informed choice?
I love the fair isle design of this skirt but even if the 10 had fitted I still don't think I would have kept it. This is because, for me, the hot pink is totally at odds with the lovely natural palette of the skirt. If the pink had been more of a heather colour ie a little more subdued and muted it would have been more in keeping.
So, if you like this and can get one, size down I would recommend, especially as the wool is lovely and thick *there is an online retailer who has stock in most sizes (except an 8) but I haven't put it here in case it is against rules. Google it!
WS..MORE knitted skirts please!!! And get your sizing sorted!

A beautiful skirt, my favourite.
It is so sad but I had to send this perfect skirt back as it was way to big on the hips and waist, and as they are now out of stock I don't think I will bw able to get another one, unless they get more.

Cosy, comfy, colourful & creative sums up this fabulous skirt
Cannot fault this fabulous little skirt so glad I ordered before it sold out.
It is a bright, breezy, wooly little number which sits just above the knee, perfect with thick tights or leggings & boots.
It is slightly over-generous in size but I prefer that. The colours are bright but not garish & I have so many items in my wardrobe that go with this skirt already. Cannot wait to wear it - roll on winter :)
