Maxi skirt

(24 Posts)

I want one grin
I have a grey jersey side split one from new look that I live in and need another
Requirements are - cheap, long (I am 5ft 10 and need it to be a min of 44 inches) and plain. Preferably a dark grey or black. Size 16-18
There's a star print one on boohoo tall I love but out of stock sad

They seem to be very few and far between this year. The best one I found was at boden but it's £60. Too much for me.

I was in primark yesterday and was disappointed with the selection. They usually have tons. I only saw two pleated maxi skirts in pastel colours. Pleats hate me sad I was in all the usual high street stores too and again saw none. I was actually looking for capri style jeans and there is none about this year either.

I like the look of this m&co one. They also have some plain black ones.

I am searching for one exactly the same at the moment. I don't want to pay ££££ for one but as a tall person (also 5ft 10) it seems I will have to.

Ollivander84 Sun 07-May-17 15:44:29

Just looked at the black one and it's 40 inches so too short sad
I honestly wish I had bought 5 of the new look one, it's just great to throw on with converse and a vest. Randomly it was long enough

Maudlinmaud Sun 07-May-17 15:45:37

Try amazon or ebay.

Ollivander84 Sun 07-May-17 15:46:39

Just realised this one is down to £25 but in navy which goes with nothing I own

Maudlinmaud Sun 07-May-17 15:47:59

Also boohoo sell on asos, so check stock there.

Long Tall Sally?

If anyone knows where I can get a good quality material plain black jersey one, would love to know. Thanks!

JamesDelaneysHat Sun 07-May-17 15:49:49

Oops snap!

Ollivander84 Sun 07-May-17 15:55:48

I'm off to check asos
eBay actually have one that's charcoal grey and 43 inches so I'm tempted by that

Unicorn81 Sun 07-May-17 16:00:21

Ive got this, says 40" but im 5 ft 11" (35" inside leg) and its right to the floor

NotExactlyHappyToHelp Sun 07-May-17 16:01:10

bingohandjob Is this any good for you? The quality probably won't be amazing but it's a bargain.

Ollivander84 Sun 07-May-17 16:05:22

Unicorn - I'll keep an eye on that one as all the reviews say it's too long! Out of stock at the minute (I need a 16 in that brand)

bingohandjob Sun 07-May-17 20:14:55

Thank you NotExactly, I'll give it a whirl! flowers

Lots in Vila

Not expensive & Size M is 104cm which google informs me is 40.9inches.

Hobbes8 Sun 07-May-17 20:32:39

I'm 5ft 4 and bought a black one in h&m and it trails on the ground behind me. It was only about £6. Very thin floaty jersey material.

NatureIsAWhore Sun 07-May-17 20:36:32

I got one from gap last year in navy blue.

Ollivander84 Sun 07-May-17 22:17:06

I've ordered an eBay one which comes in petite to extra tall. Will report back!

Ollivander84 Wed 10-May-17 15:02:09

My eBay one arrived! £15 plus postage
Sizing is small I would say but v v generous length. I got extra tall and it's floor length on me. Pretty happy with it

margaritasbythesea Tue 16-May-17 13:25:33

I ordered the Vila one and it's very clingy. I'm a size 10 and ordered the medium but I'm sending it back.

Do you know a seamstress/dressmaker who could run up a copy of the one you have? Then you could choose exactly the fabric you want. Skirts are generally straightforward.
