Fashion question

Can a plus size girl wear a skirt like this?



And what do you call that sort of skirt so I can find one should it be suitable?

And while I am asking questions.... why are there so many ugly yarns? I went to Jo-Ann's with my sister cause she needed art supplies. The ugly yarns outnumbered the nice yarns 10 to 1 at least. They have a few new things in the sensations line that are nice, but not nice for the price they want for them. And so much ugly stuff. Ugly stuff that is expensive too. It's sad.

I did cast on for the Kitt Trinket Bag. The Mission Falls wool is not so nice on the fingers. I wish I would have just picked up a skein of Cascade 220. I can't even begin to imagine wearing a garment out of that stuff. Course I think it's discontinued, and that could be why.

No! It is rare a eh.. non-plus-size women looks good in those things! Partiularly in white - see through! Sorry... I was thinking of getting one myself, but was a little doubtful, and then James (a friend whom I've never heard voice an opinion on women's clothing) said similar to the above (ie. they look good on no-one), so that kinda cinched it for me.

Get a funky denim skirt? I'm hardly the fashionista, so I don't really know what to suggest as an alternative :-S

I hear ya when it comes to the ugly yarns out there.

I'm not sure what that skirt is called. It is cute, but I wouldn't do it in white. White stains like nobody's business.

p.s. It's a gypsy skirt (at least it is in the UK)
