Purely Modest sent me a Miriam Skirt for review, and I was able to actually go through the customization process, to get a skirt that was exactly what I like. I sent in my preferred fabric and color choices (navy blue polyester poplin), as well as my measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Waist, hips and length were all taken so that the skirt was guaranteed to fit properly, and be the right length-something I have trouble with, as I'm a little taller than average. The Miriam Skirt is a 6-gore skirt, which provides a slimming appearance, yet has plenty of material to "flow", and give that feminine touch. The skirt has a waistband and zipper, so it's a little more fitted than the typical elastic waist. When my skirt came in, I could hardly wait to try it on.

First, though, I took the time to check out the seams. Honestly, you can not tell this isn't a store-bought skirt; everything is very neatly and professionally done. If you're thinking "homemade" means the skirt will be sloppy, or have loose threads, uneven seams-set your mind at ease! Purely Modest provides you with 5-star quality work!
After finishing my "inspection" of the skirt, I tried it on-and found to my delight that it is really a perfect fit. The waist isn't too snug, and sits just right. The length-wow! It hits right below my ankle bone, just where I like. Plenty long enough, yet not sweeping the floor as I walk :) This skirt has become a favorite, and looks great being dressed up with a nice blouse for Church, or paired with a favorite tee for running errands during the week.
