Embellished border long skirt
Not a Gypsy Skirt
I had thought LB had brought back the Very figure flattering, fitted at the waist with a zipper, Extremely Gorgeous, Tied Ruffled, Gypsy Style skirts back again when I seen this...
So I snatched this skirt up the moment I walked in the store, along with every other new long skirt that LB had gotten in at the same time. I was beyond thrilled, as I had been waiting a long time for the return of more of their fabulous long skirts. I was so excited that I purchased them instantly! Along with tops to go with them...
Than I returned them all.
I was so very disappointed...
At first glance they seemed just like the other skirts I had purchased in the past. But they weren't even close.
The fit was terrible, not flattering at all.
All of the new skirts had been made with much less fabric and only one ruffle or none at all, instead of the four to six rows of increasing ruffles, which had totally changes the entire silhouette.
The rows of elastic at the waist instead of the normal fitted top of these types of skirts, was not a good choice either. It made the top of the skirt chucky hugging your tummy, with no support, so it didn't stay in place. It also took away the smooth silhouette you look for in a skirt, no draping affect at all. I never looked worse.
I was very disappointed because long skirt like these need volume, but I'm still hopeful that someday LB will bring back the very figure flattering, Extremely Gorgeous Gypsy Style skirts again.

I ordered this skirt, tried it, liked it, returned it, went to a different store, eyed it again, bought it but cut part of the elastic off, sewed a single elastic band into it n it is a bit shorter n fits better:)

Never is an "crinkly" as it is the first time you wear it. It gives instructions on how to keep it crinkly after you wash it but it's not the same. I think it still looks good even at just a little crinkly. Very see through!

This skirt is great to wear to church or for those days when you just want to wear a skirt.
