Doesn't run large
I did NOT find that this skirt run large. I ordered one size down, and it was too small. I also thought it would be ankle length. It seemed tea length to me. The material of the skirt is lovely. Would have been a lovely outfit for Thanksgiving but it was too small.
Length for Talls need to be longer
Great skirt however for tall sizes the length needs to be about 2 or 3 inches longer. A few years back the tall wool skirts from Chadwicks were 42 inches and that was about perfect. I am 5'8" and it is just not long enough especially if you want to wear heels or boots with it.
I ordered the black and red plaid and I loved the material and the color. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does run big. I ordered the petite size 2 and had to have it hemmed. I wear it to work with a black sweater and black suede boots. It looks very professional so I didn't mind having to pay to have it hemmed.
I ordered the plaid in 10P and it fits great. I'm an apple shape, no waist, but this A-line skirt is flattering. Nice quality material and well made. It should be noted that if I followed the Chadwick size chart I should have ordered a 16 or 18 because my waist is 36". That would have been HUGE. 10P fits perfect, not tight. (The V-neck pullover, 67756, in Heather Smoke is a nice lightweight, washable sweater and a good match for the plaid wool skirt.)
Runs large, and longer than pic
I ordered this in my usual size but had to return it because it was just too big in the waist, and also too long. But I really like the fabric and colors, so I reordered it in the next smaller size, in petite.
