Dainty and demure, our cotton eyelet skirt is delicately detailed with a fan pattern and scalloped hem. We finished it with a pretty grosgrain waistband. Slight A-line shape. Sits lower on waist. Side zip. Fully lined. 16" long. Import. Dry clean.
I tried this skirt on in a size 4 and I think it fits fairly true-to-size. I think it's a pretty comfortable fit, and lends itself towards the tighter side, which is nice or not nice in a mini skirt depending on how you look at it. ;) The length on the skirt was pretty nice - almost a regular skirt for me. If you wanted to get more length out of the skirt, I think you could size up.
The fabric on this skirt is a nice, solid cotton. I would say it's a little bit more on the stiffer side, but it is still nice to the touch, and fairly light. It doesn't move terribly well, but I think that's more of an effect of the cut and silhouette of the skirt itself, rather than being due to the fabric. I think the skirt is a tad bit on the sheer side. Notice that even in the model's picture, you can see where her tee-shirt begins. I guess this just means be careful what you wear underneath.
I think the pattern is very pretty. It has the allover fan shapes with the eyelet pattern on them, and they create a very feminine-looking scalloped hem on the bottom. The grosgrain ribbon waistband is also a very nice, sweet touch.
I think this skirt is fairly versatile, depending on the length you wear it at and how tightly you wear it. Because it's white, you can easily pair it with a whole bunch of different colors and accessories to dress it up or down. I think the pattern also easily translates from casual to more dressy occasions.
In the end, I left this skirt behind because of the length (have said before I'm not a mini skirt person, and will probably say it in every review of them I do, unfortunately) and because of the price. I thought $98 was a bit too much to spend on this skirt, given that I would hardly ever wear it. That said, I do think it is a really pretty skirt, and if I had some place to wear it, I might be tempted by it now that it's on sale.
What do you think? Do you like this skirt? Do you own it? Would you have liked to see it come in any other colors?
