┬áby Kyasurin Great skirt.
I haven't been buying as much from Anthro recently but I think this skirt is great.
It doesn't say this in the product description so I will mention that it is machine washable(on it's own - not with other clothing), gentle cycle. The shell of the skirt is 100% cotton and feels substantial enough. The lining is polyester and the lining is really pretty. I'll attach a picture.
Also the pattern on the side matches up really well where the back and front are stitched together. I looked at some other ones in the store and they all seemed to be matched up pretty well. So it does seem like quality control was good with this skirt....of course I can't say for sure that you won't get a bad one but my store seemed to have a good batch from the ones I looked at.
I purchased a 0 and the waist of the skirt is 13" across when laying flat(so 26" around in total) if that helps you figure out what size to order. I used a measuring tape to measure it.
I also love the length of the skirt as Anthro has been lacking in skirts that are this length lately.
The pattern actually reminds me of a kaleidoscope so I was surprised when I saw that that word isn't in the name of the skirt.

One of the saleswomen in the Chelsea Market store was wearing this and it looked so pretty I had to try it on - especially at the sale price. I tried my normal size and I was about an inch away from closing it. I could not size up as the store was out of anything higher than a 6. I passed the saleswoman again and noticed she was wearing the skirt with a gap at the top - she could not close hers either! The other issue with the skirt is it attracts dust very badly - all of the skirts in the salesroom were covered with white lint.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby BennyGirl Beautiful but with some issues
This skirt leapt off the sale rack at me, with its gorgeous print and beautiful lines. Tried both my usual Anthro sizes and found the larger size was needed - this skirt is very snug at the waist. Could have gone up another size, but would have created too much bulk elsewhere. Also noticed that the smooth cotton fabric is a lint magnet, which really shows on the solid black portion of the skirt, and that would drive me crazy. Stunning to look at, but not one that came home with me.
