I'm thinking skirt and I'm thinking vintage. So I'm looking at eBay a lot lately. Would anyone have any tips on sizing, which years/collections are better, fabrics, etc. Also, any resale online shops? This is an entirely new territory for me. I bought a vintage Hermes skirt suit and had it altered to fit. Yes, it makes me look like the lady of the manor but it's sort of ironic but kitschy and fun on me. It was an expensive and time consuming alteration project but well worth it. So, I am willing to devote the resources necessary to get the perfect fit. Normally I wear Vivienne Westwood, Shin Choi, Nanette Lepore and a few high street brands like Zara. I usually get these altered to fit, too. (Europeans have no booty whatsoever so whatever fits me in the hips gapes in the waist. I also have a very broad back measurement but not much of a bust. I swear I missed my calling as a drag queen sometimes.) I'm also a larger size in terms of vintage in that I wear about an American 8/10 French 40/42 UK 10/12. Also, remember I'm in Ireland, which is often wet and chilly. Many thanks in advance for any opinions and assistance.
