‘Dixie Doll’ Royal Stewart Tartan 50s Style Pencil Skirt



Dixie Doll Skirt Style

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.

    My first buy from British Retro. Just got it today and the skirt is fabulous and true to size. Material is very soft and it flows following my body figure. I am petite 157 cm, and I never had a wiggle skirt that is really hugging perfectly to my body with perfect length. I love this skirt so much, really worth the price.

    Beautiful skirt – Genuinely beautiful. I fluctuate between an 8 and a 10 so ordered a 10 as this is tight fitting and it fits absolutely perfectly. Lovely quality – Will be ordering more soon!
