am thinking broad waistband, full skirt just over the knee, quite thick fabric with some design or print that I can wear with thick tights and ankle boots. Has anyone seen one vaguely resembling my description? Hope so, there's no way I can sew!!!!

Thanks Patty 0 a bit like that in terms of pattern but I think I'd like it to be a bit fuller, maybe some pleats....t5his skirt may well not exist - thanks for looking!

I had something similair once but made out of cotton and in layers. I found it in TK Maxx.

I hope you find something, I know exactly what you mean.

monsoon usually do this kind of skirt, it might be a bit early for them to be in the shops.

Hmmm thanks Clure - I like the skirt very much but it looks too long and I'm worried I'd look a bit frumpy in it. I like the lower part of the dress and the length but don't think the top half would work on me. Thanks you for looking. I hate it when you get an idea in your head but can't find the reality!!

wow - lots to look at - thank you! Am generally size 12. I like the look of the Da Wanda stuff (have never heard of them) - thanks TapselteerieO. Yes Clure yours was the kind of border I was thinking of but too long. Didn't get anywhere with your e-bay link Plum but thanks. I like that one Sleep but wanted more pattern and is £££. Thank you all for trying!
