I love this skirt - patchwork jersey cotton (so it's stretchy) with a rough cut bottom (no hem) and pretty applique flowers stitched on the front. As with all the Wicked Dragon products, it's well made and decent quality. The elasticated waist is quite deep. The colours mean that it will go with loads of colours. I'm only 5'3" so often longer skirts are ankle length on me and end up getting dirty on the bottom, but this is a good length for me, and it just skims the top of calf length boots.
I would have given this 5* except for the sizing - I am usually a 10/12 but post-Christmas podge means I'm probably a 12/14 at the moment so I bought the M/L size, thinking that it would be plenty big enough. But I was very surprised and a little disappointed to find that it was really very tight on me around the waist (I'm probably about 32" at the moment, normally 30" waist). In fact the elasticated waist was so tight that I thought that I had mistakenly been sent the smaller size. But the label said M/L. I really should have returned it but I love the skirt so much and had already planned to wear it at the weekend that I decided to keep it as an incentive to get the recently gained weight back off. The skirt fabric is cotton and so it did stretch across my ample backside.
I'm quite handy with a needle and thread so I may replace the elastic in the waist to make it larger.
So if in doubt about sizing, I'd go larger and don't be afraid to go for the XL size if you're a 14 or more.
And as ever with Wicked Dragon, it arrived promptly, with Royal Mail tracking, and there was a nice little (chocolate) surprise in the parcel.
This was my second order from Wicked Dragon and I'll definitely be ordering from them again.
