I bought an M&S top size 20 or 22 because of the nice combination of colours. I showed it to my boyfriend and asked: it would be a nice skirt, wouldn’t it? he replied: but it’s a top and much too big, just don’t buy crap. Well, I’m hoping to prove him wrong. I removed the called darts and I bought some black linen for the belt as it wasn’t long enough. A concealed zip and it should make a nice skirt for the summer, work or shopping- it looks pulled together enough for my office but not too formal to wear to town.
