Painterly Pencil Skirt

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun Skirt! This little skirt is the new favorite in my closet. A few notes: Fabric and Construction: Great corduroy with a perfect medium wale--not too small or too large. Spandex makes it comfortable. Colors are as vivid (maybe even more so) as shown in the photos, and the mix of colors makes it very versatile. Fully lined and the lace hem tape is a nice dressmaker detail. Regarding the lining, in my skirt it was too small for the corduroy shell, and the seams of the lining started pulling on my first wear. I had to pay my seamstress to enlarge the lining, so for this reason I'm only giving the skirt four stars for quality. Care: I washed this skirt inside out in a large lingerie bag in cold water on the delicate cycle and tumbled dry on low. It came out beautifully. Fit: I'm usually a size 8 and wear a 29 in Pilcro denim. I purchased this skirt in a size 8. The first time I wore it, it stretched out considerably, and I had to have my seamstress take in the waist and hips (so again, four stars for quality). I feel I could have worn a size 6. It's one of those items which feels pretty snug when you first put it on but after about an hour's wear, it stretches to a perfect fit. I advise sizing down a size. Styling: I purchased this skirt to wear with the Quinby Intarsia Cardigan after seeing it styled that way at my local Anthro. I've also worn it with the Striped Shrunken Buttondown under the cardigan. For a more casual look, this skirt looks great with the Washed Denim Buttondown, or just a simple white tee with a scarf at the neck and topped with a denim jacket. Love it paired with gray tights and black boots. Highly recommended and very pleased with my purchase! January 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, comfy, versatile You need to RUN to your local Anthro and purchase this skirt! It is absolutely beautiful. It fits true to size, the colors are so bright and cheery - but not overwhelming. There areso many things that you can wear this with and it can be dressed up, or more casual. The length is perfect - I wouldn't wait for the sale price. January 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Skirt! Love, love, love it! Just bought it on sale and the other reviewers were right on, it is an adorable skirt! Great quality and matches so much in my closet. I am usually a size 0 or 2 and the 0 fit perfectly. It falls right above my knees and I plan to wear it with boots like the model shot. February 22, 2013
