Rated 5 out of 5Â by DCAnthroDevotee Beautiful skirt
I ordered this skirt in a size medium. I typically wear a size 6 in pencil skirts. I found the medium to be just a bit snug, but it's wearable. The pattern is gorgeous, and the material feels silky. The skirt seems to be well-made. It hit me a few inches above the knee (I'm between 5'9" and 5'10") but I think it's workable with tights.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Yetiagogo Not quite a pencil skirt
Lovely eye-catching pattern, soft silky material - and it does look nice with a blue blouse even.
I would have to argue the point of whether or not this actually could qualify as a pencil skirt though. There is a lot of elasticity to this skirt. The waist is elastic, which sometimes that turns me off in the design aspect of a skirt, and the fabric itself is stretchy and clings, but in the wrong places (somewhat bunchy in the behind)
This skirt runs small. I bought a small - I'm normally a 2 or a 4 in skirts, but I think I definitely could have gone for a medium. The hips were tight but the waist fit well (probably because of the elastic waist band). I think the skirt length could have been longer and the waist higher. I'm 5'5" and this skirt didn't even make it to my knee. I expected much more out of this skirt than I anticipated. it's still a fun piece - the design is lovely and I'm really into black and white florals and patterns right now. I think I might bring it back - if I can exchange it for a medium I might keep it. Overall - not a bad piece, but try it on first to make sure it's right for you.
