I need skirts. In the last 10 years I've been a sahm, then a non-formal teacher to young mums. Therefore I've worn pretty much jeans!
I just got a promotion (!!! ) and now my role is 0.5 teaching and 0.5 training - for which I need to be more formal.
But I have some non-negotiable criteria. I'll explain!
I'm a size 18-20 (massive achievement, 18 months ago I was a 28!)
I'm disabled - part of my neurological problem has affected my legs. I've got badly scarred/discoloured skin and because I can't walk very far, I have intermittently swollen ankles. I can't wear tights as the feeling on my sensitised skin makes me very uncomfortable. So I need long skirts. I need elasticated waists as I can't manage fastenings with my only partially-functional hands. I need soft material, such as jersey, due to sensitivity again.
