Maternity below knee pencil skirt

In black. Anyone seen one?

I like this but I am a sixteen now at seven weeks and beginning to show; a 14's not really going to cut it.

I want one to make up for the leather skirt I ordered weeks ago which already doesn't fit. So if you can find me a leather maternity skirt, that's even better- but I won't hold my breath (well, only to get into the skirt I have).

Have you tried ASOS? their maternity range was pretty good to me last year and looks even better this year?

Heh, tethers, congrats!! It does say "it comes up rather large" in the reviews.

"DVO"? here but doesn't give length

Oooh, had forgotten about this, sorry!

Thanks for ideas and congrats smile... had discounted Asos, but if it comes up big, then they have a skirt which could work... That DVO one is ok, but doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Try Isabella Oliver here - their stuff lasts, washes brilliantly and keeps its shape! well worth the money.

Thanks French- IO was in my OP grin

The skirt I want from them is the midi pencil skirt but only available in a 14...

jojo maman et bebe had a lovely pencil skirt last season, I am a er large 16 and it fitted until I went on maternity leave at 32 weeks.

I wonder if they still do it, hang on a sec

Yes they do

I am tall and it was on the knee on me.

Sorry tethers, momentarily distracted by teething baby and forgot to have recall of more than 5 seconds smile

But website says the IO split pencil skirt in black is available in size 5, i was a 16 (and then some) in early pregnancy and their stuff all came a little roomy and fitted all the way through pregnancy and beyond, so i would recommend it!

this one - cheap and cheerful and free delivery if you're not in a massive hurry!

Just to add - I haven't got that skirt but have bought a couple of maternity dresses from ASOS and they are fairly decent - quite generous.
