Rated 5 out of 5 by DogLover very beautiful skirt!
I loved this skirt right from the get go; however, when it arrived the fit was way off. The fabric and design are very unique and gorgeous. the size 2 which is what I always wear in Maeve is usually right; however, with the skirt waist to hip ratio measurements were off. the waist line fit and the hips did not. The hips were bigger for a straighter figure such as I am. It would fit more for an hourglass and curvy gal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pabird Pretty, but not for me
I was so excited to get this skirt, as I have been looking for a skirt like this for quite a while. The colors are just as beautiful as shown in the picture, and it seemed like a high quality skirt, if a little delicate. A previous reviewer mentioned that the sizing was off in the hips but for me it was much too large in both the waist and hips. Usually I wear 00P/XXSP in Anthro skirts and they are a good snug fit, and I could probably often wear a 0P/XSP if I wanted a more relaxed fit. (5 ft 3 inches tall, just over 100 lbs, 24.5 inch waist and 32.5 hip). I held this 00P skirt up over a 00P Maeve skirt I bought in the fall (Sadie skirt, bright blue skirt with circle pattern), and this new skirt was clearly 2 to 3 inches larger everywhere. I returned as getting significant alterations done at this price point wasn't something I wanted to pursue.
I would agree with the previous reviewer that this skirt is much less pencilly than in looks in the photo, so it would definitely accommodate wider hips like an hourglass or curvy figure. If you're in the smaller size brackets you will be sized out though.
