Didn’t expect to love this!

I dillydally too long when the Helena Long first came out and missed my window. I ordered it quickly when it came back into stock, but I was actually going to be in the middle of a trip, so I had it sent to my mom‘s house so I could, well, travel in the travel skirt. I knew I was going to be wearing it and didn’t have time to fiddle around with size changes, so I got the large, although generally with Wooland, I get everything in a medium. I just have not gotten anything with a waste, and figured that because you can fold over the waistband that would make it a little tighter in case it was too loose.

Fits me fine. I have a suspicion that the medium would as well, but as long as something is good enough, I am content. I love the long length, absolutely love it. One of my favorite uses is to bring it with me to the gym, where I’m wearing a wool T-shirt and my axis crop leggings. I used to go to the grocery store or do whatever errands afterwards in my leggings, but they are thicker, and it’s getting quite hot in Hawaii. Now I just throw the skirt on, and if it’s really hot, I can wiggle out of my leggings in the car. But even if I keep them on, I think the skirt makes me look more dressy, and I prefer that just in case I run into one of my former students. ;-)

I prefer long dresses/skirts, but I was thinking of getting the short Helena because it was not intended to be a main outfit but honestly, it’s so lightweight that I could see myself wearing this in Hawaii with a tank or a tee even in the summer, So I’m glad I got the Long so I can be as active as I want without feeling close to flashing people. Hooray for Helena!

Just what I was looking for. Much more flowy than the Francis, and on me much less frumpy.

Great style, but very sheer

I'm glad I got this in black before it sold out in my size! It's a comfortable and versatile style. I have some issues with the fabric, though. It's lightweight, what I would consider "blouse" weight. Skirts and pants are subjected to more wear and tear, and I expect this to wear out quickly. As others have commented, it's quite see through, so bike shorts or leggings are a must. Also, not sure if I happened to get an "off" dyelot - but the black is a different shade of black from my other Wooland pieces. It's lighter and has a greenish tinge, almost appears faded.
