Anyone able to recommend for me where I can buy A-line skirts (knee length) for myself? To wear to work with a nice top/cardie? I used to buy them from Jacqui E, but they stopped doing the style I like.

Many thanks

They are easy to sew.

Do you know any sewers?

Is it bad that I silently pronounced that as people who sue.

Oh dear.....

Apologies to all the non faeces filled people who sew out there!  

Of whom I'm one! (I hope)

The term you want is seamstress.

Back on topic, sorry OP, I can't help.

But seamstress is gender biased.  I didn't want to exclude any men who were able to sew OP a nice A line skirt (which BTW thanks OP - I will be doing for myself when my awesome boots arrive!)

Somehow though, in my pc attempt to not leave out the chaps I seem to have insinuated that the OP might be friends with some inanimate, rather stinky infrastructure..!

Are you in Melbourne?  Or Vic?  Check out Sheesh clothing,  she does gorgeous skirts with soft  waistbands, 2 choices of lengths.  She sells through markets but you could see if she'll mail them if you're not local.  They're $50 or $60 which I found cheaper than Etsy once postage was factored in.  Loads of fabrics to choose from,  I'm addicted!

There are two Brisbane based labels that do great alines.  Dogstar and Maiocchi.  They also have a good range of sizes and currently on sale I think.

Hi guys,I was doing a search and saw this topic. Sheesh is my clothing line. And Yes I primarily do A-line skirts. While I am Melbourne based I also travel to Canberra regularly and do lots of country markets around Victoria through the year. I am hoping to get to Tassie and Adelaide in the near future. My specialty is A-line skirts with a stretch waist band in interesting fabrics. The stretchy band means they can be used during pregnancy as well as any other time.Check it out at [link removed by Moderator] You will find a listing of upcoming markets there FYI.Cheers for the mention!

Sheesh - I love your skirts they look great. Might have to come to the markets.

Dressmaker is another possible name to use instead of stemstress.

This brand does some lovely ones. They are a nice high quaity cotton.

Essaye

I think they come in just above the knee and just over the knee.

But that makes me think of hamster. Or seamaster.

Tailor?

BTW, I love A-line skirts but they have to be exactly the right length and size on me or I look frumpy in them. And I much prefer them with heels than flats, but that could be because I'm so shrimp.

I bought a nice one on ebay recently - it was Veronika Maine brand.

I love a-line skirts. I make my own but I have seen gorgeous ones like Essaye, BoomShankar and Wanderlust (check out their facebook page).
I have also seen some nice ones on Etsy.

Veronica Maine do a great A-line for work. Great quality, last and last, but quite expensive.
