You know one should never buy clothing that is a little bit too small, if one ever really wants to use it...
I've had this skirt only once, but it is unfortunately too small for me in the waist to be able to wear comfortably.
It is pretty however so it's a shame!

The skirt has an attached belt in the waist and an musical note embroidery on the right side.
Brand is Tara Starlet.

Measurements, actual:
waist: 70-71cm
Hip: free
Length : 70cm

Material : 100% heavy cotton (no stretch), plastic belt buckle.

Zip- and button fastening in the back.

The skirt has only been worn once! It has had a little accident however, a small cut in the fabric in the waist band (about 4 cm) just in front.
I have fixed it with a black zig zag seam. It is behind the belt buckle so it won't show or notice, I couldn't really get a proper photo of it either.

Price : 25 euros

Shipping & packing costs will be about 5€ inside Europe and about 7€ everywhere else.



Vintage green sheer dress with black lace. It has a small tag that says SILO and size 40 - well, I would've said 36.

I adore this dress, but personally I prefer dresses that are slightly longer. I was planning to add some lace or whatever to the hem to make it longer, but as that has not happened during those three years I've had this dress, I've just decided to let it go - I'm sure someone else will enjoy this more! I am a few kilos more, eh, voluptuous now than when that picture was taken and it still fits me, although it is more tight now. But it does make the body look beautiful! IN other words, if you are smaller than me it will still look nice as this dress does not have to be skin tight.

Material : chiffon like, soft feel, most likely polyester. No stretch.

Measurements, flat:
Lenght (shoulder to hem): 87cm
Bust : 43cm
Waist: 36cm
Hips: 47

Conditon: used, without flaws.
I repaired part of the lower hem when I bought it, my stitches are not that even but they only show on the inside.

(My measurements in inches are around 36-28-40, sometimes a bit more, so around those or anything smaller will fit at least :)

Price : 25 euros

Shipping & packing costs will be about 5€ within Europe and 7€ everywhere else.



This bone white skirt is big and puffy, although not a full circle skirt. It has pleats a bit wodn from the the waist for a beautiful hemline and a slightly slimmer look upwards. It is a tiny little bit too big for me in the waist, but I've chinced it in with a belt; the skirt has two belt loops in front. Zipper and button loop fastening in the side.

The brand is Jackpot. The quality is good (retail price was around 80 euros).

Size : 32. The sizing is generous, as I am normally a EUR 36 or 38.
(I think it is perhaps meant to be worn lower on the hip, but I keep it high waisted, thus the small size.)

Measurements; taken flat, please compare with a garment of your own:
Lengt: 63cm
Waist: 36cm
Hip: 13cm below the waist; 47, the lower hip is is free.

Material : 100% heavy cotton. No stretch.

The skirt has only been used about 4-5 times; I will wash it now for the first time before selling it.

Shipping and packing costs will be approx. 5€ within Europe and 7€ everywhere else.

Price : 18 euros
