    Having a guide like this with models of different sizes is genius. And having their opinion of sizing and fit is invaluable when buying online.

    Just bought the Sherlock Full Skirt (size 4) today from the lovely Tammy. This collection is stunning and I’m happy to now own a piece of it! I grew up with Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys comics and love all kinds of tartan prints so this will be a favourite of mine for years to come.
