This is a beautiful well made skirt, lovely fabric. It will require some alterations because it is too wide at the hip (I am slim, 5'3", 106 lbs., usually size 4-6) but it will be worth it because it was such a great bargain. I'm looking forward to wearing it as a change of pace from pants. I will also have to have it shortened because it is too long for comfortably walking and climbing even with the bottom vent, but again, it will be worth it because it is well made, which is rare these days at a reasonable price.

I sew and tailor, so I know exceptional quality when I see it! Comments said fit in waist was small; I thought good, since my biggest fit problem is clothes are too big in the waist. However, it's really small! If you get the 6, you had better have a waist 24in. or less. Also, the skirt would drape nicely and look slimming if you have a somewhat rounded belly, but doesn't hang so well on a flat one. Have to return it. And length - I'm 5'4" and wear petites in everything except pants (short torso, long legs) but this came within 2 incnes of my ankles!

Skirt is well made and fabric looks to be of good quality. Have not worn it yet. Unfortunately, waist is small for me even though most 6P fits me. prefered black but out so I settled for tan. still looks good.

Austin Reed makes great clothes. So far, I have purchased 1 suit and 4 skirts from Austin Reed. They are classics that never go out of style. It's unfortunate that it's very difficult to find their clothing line in the U.S. I would purchase all my suits from Austin Reed.

The fabric is beautiful. the fit is strange. Small waist but rest okay. I usually take an 8 but need a 10 in this because of the waist...I am usually concerned about fitting through my hips, both 8 and 10 fit hips..waist tight but fabric so nice I will keep the skirt
