If you read my Titilated by Tartan post last week you’ll know I consider Vivien of Holloway the queen of tartan–so I was thrilled to be sent on one of their tartan circle skirts last week! I literally love every single tartan colourway VoH offers in their circle skirts and have wanted one for an age, but I think it was festive fate that the red tartan print I be joined together in Christmas matrimony. For this post I snatched up my new pretty in my pinup paws and headed to one of our good ol’ British cobbled beaches near sunset to snap the pics for this post.

For those who don’t know Vivien of Holloway clothes are sized by vintage sizing, but on the website they list everything by bust-waist-hip inch measurements so it’s very easy to find the right size to order. I found this skirt runs true to size, fits me perfectly, and is super comfortable. It’s quite long, so for you pint-sized pinups you may have to take it up should you buy one, but for your average sized doll it’s a nice longer full skirt for the winter months, and a decent length skirt for towering pinups too, who I know can have trouble getting their retro skirts to fall as wished beyond the knee.
The VoH circle skirts come in 40 colourways at my last count, 7 of which are tartan prints, cost £45 each, and are just gorgeous. I’ll be wearing my tartan piece all winter long.
Do you dolls own any VoH tartan pieces or circle skirts?
