'Big Skirts'

Evening all

I'm looking for a big full skirt with pockets (they probably have a name) for an event with DH work

Something like this

But ideally a bit cheaper, maybe £60/£75 or so, any ideas?

Have a look at Elsie's Attic-they have some lovely skirts in that style.

Busybee233 Wed 26-Apr-17 21:55:16 Try here they have a few

I've just finished sewing one myself. It cost me £4 in fabric and took about an hour.

Clearly i have discovered my market!

If you want one I haven't made, oasis have them.

Amazing! Thanks for the quick responses!

Try this ?

Not sure if it had pockets but Tkmaxx had a lovely full skirt in

and another in navy/pink - better sizes in store

I see now that they are called midi skirts, I also see that there is 20% off Coast in Debenhams bringing the original down to £103, not too awful blush

Next have quite a few different ones in

Not keen on the length of the Coast one but pockets! I hate that so many women's clothes don't have pockets.

I love that style, but prefer plain fabric for everyday

Always worry about my hips looking huge though!

MrsELM21 Wed 26-Apr-17 22:14:43

This is true, I've never actually tried one on, I may well look enormous!!

ClosetLondon is a fab site! Thanks for the link Busy

I bought one from Chicwish which a few people above posted. Great service and lovely quality. It's coming from Asia though so takes a bit longer and returns aren't cheap. Mine's a tad on the tight side. I'm a 10-12 and ordered size M. Large would have prob been better but of course I'll lose a few pounds and fit into the M...

I have this one from chicwish and it's stunning. Pockets too. I think the sizing can be a bit weird so check the size guide, and the stuff can take a while to arrive but some of their midi skirts are gorgeous.

I love closet London so much there dresses and clothes are never to short or fitting I'm only 22 but really hate the way most high street stuff is there stuff always seems very lady like

Has anyone bought anything from Closet London? What's it like quality/size/customer service.
I'm a bit nervous about sites I don't know but there's so many nice things on there.
