Ient it to my oldest daughter thisweekend and I doubt it will make its way back to my closet. The colors are bright but not gaudy, and we wear it with flats and a satin like black t-shirt, and it looksv terrific for work.
We are short, 5'4 to be exact, and it isv ankle length, as you can see in the pictures. I washed in cold and hung it to dry, no ironing, and easy to care for. Make sure you buy two sizes yes, two!
Keeping this in mind, the skirt fit very nicely. The material is very light and comfortable. The pattern is true to the image, and the colors were nice. Haven't washed it yet, so not sure how it holds up after a washing. My wife is 5'3", and the skirt came to her ankles. These are very soft and flowing skirts and I absolutely love them.
I just ordered 2 more since I travel a lot and they are perfect for traveling. They are of very good quality and feel wonderful on. After reading reviews, I ordered and XL and they fit great. Skirt is lovely, many colors and I like the way it flows.. I would recommend this skirt for either casual or dressing up wear. Truly a lovely budget priced skirt that would go really well for work, church or for an evening out.
I would suggest that you wear a top with it that covers you till just below your waist as the waist line is not really meant to be shown. I enjoyed the way it flowed and felt. Though it's partly lined to the knees the fabric is still pretty lightweight so I wore a slip also. The "puckered" tiered over-skirt takes this to the next level of plain black skirts. I'm not a fan of poly-type slippery fabrics, but this one is a keeper and I'll likely wear it in colder weather with boots, as well. Just got it and tried right away.
If your waist is 29", this skirt could be uncomfortable, I'm still trying to decide because tight waists hurt my tummy and overall comfort. However, the skirt is beautiful. Oh, yeah, also, not so lightweight for summer as I was hoping, but that has to do with attached long slip which some people might like.
I am usually a size 8 and paid attention to reviewers and ordered a large which was a good decision. Still trying to decide. It's so nice, I wonder if I should bring to tailor for the waist problem.
