I bought two of these skirts for an upcoming trip to Africa. I needed cool, lined fabric, below the knee length and comfortable. These really hit the mark for me. I am 5'4" tall and they hit me about mid-calf, which is perfect to match Africa modesty. I wear a size 16 normally and the XL is plenty roomy for comfort. Great purchase!
I was pleased to see a skirt for sale that wasn't way above the knee or long (mid-calf). This skirt is below the knee by an inch or two. I like the style and the fact that it is lined in cotton, not polyester! So, no need for a slip but still very light weight, just what I needed for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. The only thing I don't like is the waist, which is elastic is very loose and I needed to take it in so I would have a waist.
This skirt is well made with good quality fabric. I also like the length - not too long or too short. The problem is with the flare area at the bottom. Because the skirt is cotton, the fabric tends to stick out like wings at the bottom of the skirt. I sprayed the bottom with a spray bottle of water and that helped. I decided to keep the skirt because otherwise it is very nice.
The skirt is very nice, I received a compliment from an unknown lady while shopping. It is extremely delicate: I already manage to tear it while dressing. I don't think it will be washable in a washing machine. Poor crafted, probably that is what you get for a cheap price.
For the money, this is a nice, lightweight skirt. I love the length - it is just barely below my knee, which is usually a matronly look on me, but because it is A-line it is actually very flattering. The skirt is also lined, which is a big plus. I will say that I am glad I have a clothes steamer because the skirt was very wrinkled when it arrived and because of its construction, it would be tricky to iron. All in all, a very good buy and I think this will be a "go to" piece for me in the warm weather of southwest Florida.
The length stated in the description is inaccurate. This skirt is a good two inches longer and, as you can see, it really can't be altered. The quality is okay for the price but be advised that the skirt has the inside/outside look on the panels, meaning the place between each panel where they are sewn together shows. This skirt would look a lot better if the inside were outside. The elastic waste is very flimsy too. I would be more satisfied if I hadn't paid almost ***for this skirt. It's more like a *** skirt.
