It is my third Whirlaway skirt and I just love it! Goes great with the matching waistcoat. Perfect green, goes with nearly everything but has a special twist. Remember that there is no stretch while sizing! Would be lovely if the wool skirts would have a lining.

I love this skirt and bought it to go with the matching vest and rust blouse and the outfit is stunning, this skirt is lovely and I will wear it a lot though I was a little disappointed it was not lined, it would have been nice and the skirt would fall a little better but I will wear this for years even so.
