Rated 1 out of 5Â by EvaValentine Sheer @ the seams
I had high hopes for this. It feels lovely to touch, is a good length and hangs nicely. BUT, and it's a big BUT, it is sheer at the seams. If you bend over or move even the slightest, it shows skin. And for reference, I'm 5'7, about 116. I tried the dark grey in a small (I'm generally a sm or xs) and it wasn't fitted AT ALL standing, but as soon as I moved, I was exposing skin windows. Weird. If you plan to wear a full black maxi slip under this - I say go for it. Otherwise pass and save yourself the embarrassment of running around in an inappropriate and cheaply fashioned skirt.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Playswithtoys Great skirt but poor construction in Petites
I mail ordered the striped skirt in size PSmall. For reference, my waist is 26 inches, hips 30 inches. There were two big flaws which caused me to return the skirt. First, there was a bulky, bunched seam on the sides. It appears that a French Seam had been created with too much material. Secondly, the stripes did not match up (Note multiple gores are seamed together to make the skirt.) This might have been OK, but with so many gores (or pieces of skirt) sewn together, it was very distracting.
I then mail ordered the grey skirt in PSmall again. This time there were two new problem. First, the waist (a large piece of elastic) was at least 2 inches shorter than the first skirt in the same size. This was too tight and uncomfortable. The second problem was with the seams again, they were sewn in a way that made them wavy. The seams did not lie flat. This skirt was returned also.
I may buy the Regular size Small. It will be too long, but there will probably be gradual shrinking when washed. If it doesn't shrink then I would hem it. My reasoning is that there may be a construction problem with Petite sizes.
Note that the length of both skirts was perfect. The hem hit just below my ankle.
I loved the way the first, striped skirt fit. It is a sexy skirt and very comfortable. I want this skirt to work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jerbear13 flattering. .
I ordered the orange skirt and it is a soft coral / orange color, very pretty for spring and summer. I ordered a size down and that was a good choice. It is very figure flattering and very very soft and comfortable. It is fitted in the waist and hips, then it flares out at the bottom. Like a mermaid. It has great movement and I am 5' 4" and the small regular length is perfect for a flat if I rise the skirt higher on the waist. If I want to wear a heel, I lower the skirt a few inches. I'm very happy with my purchase. Thank you anthropologie!
