Rated 2 out of 5Â by Epicgirl Way too long!
For anyone who hasn't measured how long a 41" inch skirt (or, like the one I received, 42") actually hangs on their body, I recommend doing before ordering. I'm 5'6"and made the mistake of not measuring. In stocking feet, with the skirt at my belly button, I found that there were still at least 2 inches of the bottom dragging on the floor. I wanted to wear this with flat sandals, so the regular length is a no-go for me, although the petite might've worked. That said, considering the quality of the fabric (a loose, lightweight knit), I think this skirt is overpriced and may not bother reordering.
For reference, I'm 34/26.5/36 and found the small to be uncomfortably snug at my natural waist.

I got this in the orange and it is fabulous! Yes, it is long, but at my height I am loving that! I am normally a 4/6-small but, based on the review about the lack of "give" in the waistband, I sized up to a medium. Since I didn't try a small I can't be sure but I think I could have easily gone with either size but I'm happy with the medium because I'm more flexible about how I wear it. In flats, I keep it pulled up to my natural waist and it skims the ground. To wear heels, I have enough room in the waist to be able to pull it lower on my hips so it keeps the same length. The material is light and comfy. The seaming is flattering. Overall, I am in love. Going to get the grey too!!

This skirt has a lovely shape. It drapes nicely and feels comfortable on, but I had issues with the fabric. The outer fabric is very delicate and thin. The lining seams were not matched up with the outer fabric and were very visible and unattractive. I kept trying to adjust the lining to get it to lay invisibly, but it just wouldn't stay flat. Because the fabrics were both so thin, even my usual go-to seamless underwear was clearly visible underneath, even when I tried it with a slip. I just couldn't justify spending that much for a skirt that would never look polished and would undoubtedly snag and tear easily.
