And do you think it really would have to be dry-cleaned?

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sat 17-Sep-11 18:15:45

Yes. It will crinkle otherwise and you will never manage to fight it with an iron.

bigkidsdidit Sat 17-Sep-11 18:18:09

I love it but it would look bad on any hint of a belly I think. Definitely dry cleaning or it will never hang the same again

Like an old sack.
Maxi dress ok (if one banishes thoughts of overweight orange coloured women at Aintree. lurching about with plastic pint pots) but skirts-!


TrillianAstra Sat 17-Sep-11 18:24:06

If you generally hate maxi skirts then your opinion on this one is no good to me - it would be like asking my opinion on jumpsuits. grin

moondog Sat 17-Sep-11 18:25:53


Don't say you weren't told.

<bell of doom>

TrillianAstra Sat 17-Sep-11 18:28:01

Damn, if I had to dry clean it I would be put off wearing it so I might as well not buy it.

Does anyone else know where there are some maxi skirts not made of chiffony stuff? Maxi, mind you, one of this calf-length bollocks.

TrillianAstra Sat 17-Sep-11 18:28:15

*none of this calf-length bollocks

notyummy Sat 17-Sep-11 18:29:23

I like it.

MrsRobertDuvall Sat 17-Sep-11 18:34:17

No and yes.

KurriKurri Sat 17-Sep-11 18:36:12

No no no, not like an old sack, I like it (although could never wear it due to belly and shortness - calf length bollocks is a maxi on me grin) I think it would need dry cleaning though.

bigTillyMint Sat 17-Sep-11 18:36:32

Yes, on a tall thin young woman.

purplepidjinawoollytangle Sat 17-Sep-11 18:37:04

bleurgh, that's too old for my Gran!

Marginally less so

skirts &pageSize=20 Quite slinky

Gorgeous colour, hate the belt

Actually RI have got quite a few...

notyummy Sat 17-Sep-11 18:39:59

Yes- may depend on figure to be fair- but not age! I am 5 ft 10, size 10 but not young. I would def wear it.

notyummy Sat 17-Sep-11 18:43:01

I like the green one Purple linked to, but dont think
I could wear it to work, whereas I could see the grey one being more versatile.

KurriKurri Sat 17-Sep-11 18:53:46


mint velvet

size 8 only

tethersend Sat 17-Sep-11 18:59:58


purplepidjinawoollytangle Sat 17-Sep-11 19:11:20

Kurri, I like your first one but am too chubby to wear it

Asda one is nice smile

TrillianAstra Sat 17-Sep-11 19:53:09

Thanks for all the suggestions! smile

Jigsaw one is £139 - bit much for me.

Love the teal RI one but not keen on the split.

Topshop one doesn't look like I could walk - looks like you'd have to walk like a pengion

Lots of the RI ones are the chiffony stuff that I'm trying to avoid, but I will definitely look next time I am near one so I can see the others in RL

HoF is good -- like the fishtail

Mint Velvet one is fine but I would prefer not black

I'm not a size 8 so the phase 8 one is no good

Asda one is good for work - as long as it is actually long enough - might see if they have it in store.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 17-Sep-11 20:04:10

I quite like this - polyester though

TrillianAstra Sat 17-Sep-11 20:07:18

That one says "side split" but I can't SEE a side split. M&S fail on showing you what teh skirt is actually like.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 17-Sep-11 20:43:43

Am going to town tomorrow - do you want me to have a look at it for you and report back?

This one looks nice but only in certain sizes.

TrillianAstra Sat 17-Sep-11 20:49:12

Oooh, bargain!

Who are full circle? Have you used them before?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 17-Sep-11 20:56:41

Not online but have one skirt from them, which I love. Have only ever seen them in HoF.
