Bonny Skirt

Measuring Tips to Assure The Best Fit


With arms at sides, place tape measure under your arms and run it around the fullest part of the bustline and across the shoulder blades.


Find the natural crease of your waist by bending to one side. Run tape measure around your natural waistline, keeping one finger between the tape and your body for a comfortable fit.


With feet together, run tape measure around the fullest part of your hips/seat, about 7 to 8 inches below your waistline.


For full-length pants, run tape measure along the inside of your leg, from just below the crotch to about 1 inch below the ankle.

As we are an independent and only produce small quantities our sizes vary slightly from style to style.

All garments have been carefully measured, therefore to ensure the very best fit, we suggest taking your own body measurements, whilst wearing light-weight clothing/ underwear and standing up straight, and compare these to our size chart.

    I first wore this for a wedding in Scotland. Absolutely stunning, was complimented many times and in love with the quality!

    I wore again at Christmas and got the same reaction. Timeless classic!

    Saw this on my favourite YouTuber and thought it looked so good that I bought myself one. Lovely simplistic tartan design good for any type of outing. A staple piece in my wardrobe

    I absolutely love this beautiful skirt – it’s flawlessly made, the fabric is lovely, and it’s the perfect length and shape. My only issue is with the sizing. We all know how women’s clothing sizes fluctuate between vendors, and I take either an 8/small or, more often, a 6/x small, depending on the shop. In proportion to my other measurements, my waist is quite narrow. However, this skirt in an 8 is extremely tight on the waist – and continues to be so even after I moved the buttons a little for some extra room. I don’t own a single item of clothing in a 10, but I would definitely go with the 10 if I was buying from British Retro again (and I do intend to!). Just thought that was worth sharing for other customers :)
