Have been trying to get a denim skirt for ages but none seemed to fit my 5'9'' Size 22 figure quite right for one reason or another.

Have just seen this one and am wondering if it's worth trying:,5,shop,women,skirts,newomanskirt#

Anyone seen it in in RL or got views on it - or is it just too boring??

Tad frumpy for me! Sorry sad

If you are 5'9 that will finish just on the widest part of your calf.

I had a skirt like that but sold it on ebay. It looked ok from the front but frumpy from the back and from the side. I would avoid.

Thanks for these - think they've steered me away from a mistake. Did have doubts about frump factor, which is why I asked for second opinions.

On length, could have it taken up but would only pay to do that if I knew I was going to love it afterwards - doubtful in this case.

only if you are a pilgrim type who wears triangle flowery headwear and chants christian rhymes

No, that's not me ..... Oh dear, what was I thinking !

I quite like it, but I fear I may fall into the flowery headwear catagory blush
