At last. A skirt that fits. I have terrible trouble with skirts due to having large hips and thighs, a tiny waist and being tall, with the height chiefly being in the leg. I've always been attracted to gothic clothing because I am naturally that kind of shape. But nothing has fit like this skirt has. It is quite tight in the lower thigh to knee section, so be aware of this. Yes, you will need heels if you are petite as it is quite long (however this is great for people who are over 5ft 10ins). The lace design down the back and the little ruffles at the bottom give it a lovely late Victorian feel. It really highlights an hourglass shape and looks good with a brocade jacket, frilly shirt or matching black top for a real Morticia Addams feel. Quite good value for the money too and the delivery was prompt.
