I ordered the houndstooth and black in a 10 tall. These skirts fit great and are well made. However, the zippers on both skirts were hard to zip back and forth even with the skirt off. I even had a co-worker check the zippers and she could hardly move the zippers...so I had to send back because I thought I would have to replace the zippers!
I only wear pencil skirts, I am a size 14 and think they are most flattering on my body. I bought all 4 colors and I am VERY pleased with them. I would like to have this skirt in more colors, please. Highly recommend.

Nice skirt, but...
This is exactly what you would expect and matches the description pretty well. The wool is lighter weight meaning it hangs well without adding bulk to the hips (who needs that?!). The vent at the back is the right length to add some sass to the back, but not cut so high you catch a chill. That said, be warned that this is not for a hippy frame or thicker waist because there is no forgiveness there. I ordered a 14 which I can usually buy with confidence but the waistband is probably more snug than is comfortable. I'm not sure if a 16 would have been too sloppy. So, unless you are the perfectly proportioned person, keep in mind that you may need to exchange/return this.
I purchased this skirt with black ivory houndsto a few months ago in 2P. It fits me perfectly. I love the pattern and the material. I am going to buy the black one today.
I first purchased this skirt about six years ago and needed to replace it. The quality is excellent and the fit is fantastic. I love the houndstooth so much, I decided to order the black and am very happy with it as well.
I have the black. True to size. Good for the office or church.
