Word from my community and my own eyes when I looked at those shots myself have sent the brown skirt into the garbage can and the grey one down for a 2" hem shortening job.

And really who cares what I wear to watch Downton Abbey. Certainly not Lady Mary.
So here it is, as previewed in my neckline fix post.
