Would love a skirt with a lovely print that is A-line and falls to just above the knee. I used to rely on websites like white stuff but their prints and styles are just awful. Not sure what has happened their. I can't seem to find anything that i like and when i do the shape is wrong and the length is too long. I am looking for something thats about 20 inches. Not even boden seems to have anything nice. Anyone bought a lovely skirt thats not too £££ and just about that length?

Mistral have some nice skirts, they remind me of what what White Stuff used to be!

Ebay is great for tracking down old styles that a shop no longer does. Try looking for Boden, White Stuff, Seasalt etc. skirts on there.

Cath Kidston? Usually have a-line skirts in and prints ranging from spotty ( which I can manage) to more exciting things with cowboys and ducks.

Following for ideas. I have some lovely bits from White Stuff but they've been naff for years. Mantaray at Debenhams have a few nice prints?

Get Cutie. Handmade in the UK. Has a range of prints from bonkers to safe florals.

CK had a brilliant horse print one recently. Not tried it on though - their stuff sometimes has too much fabric.

Those Mistral dresses are lovely but very short? Only 94/95cm. I'm 5'8", has anyone any idea where they come up?

They do some in a longer length if you're tall, i'm 5'9 and have bought some in the xmas sale which come to my knee.. but they do have a mix - worth asking them?
