"Very flowy skirt with nice fit, make sure you understand there are seams on the outside of the skit, view a close up to see that. Otherwise perfect for spring and summer."

"We ordered the Deep Lilac- the description and pictures showed a white background. It is a khaki background, but my daughter likes it and it is nice. The fabric is more of a slightly shiny cotton, not voile. It wrinkles easily, so will need to be ironed often. The length is good for her needs."

"The reviews are very true here. Light flowy skirt with pleats in just the right spot on the hips. I am 5'6'' and it rides just below the knee. Love that you can dress it up with blouse and scarf or wear it relaxed with a tee (i chose watermelon---SWEET!"

"I ordered this skirt to go with a pink tee. I am so happy with this lightweight, gored, girlie skirt. The length is perfect, just below the knee. It is great for summer and wears well."

"Love this skirt. I paired it with a lavender "T" and matching shoes. One of my college students told me I was "spot on.""

"I was aware from other reviews that the seams were on the outside of this skirt, which is a style I've seen in a few things before so it didn't put me off. This skirt fits me perfectly and looks great! It was true to size. I've worn it twice so far and gotten compliments. I am a bit nervous about washing it, as the seams and material look a bit fragile, but so far haven't needed to. I'm very happy with this purchase--I got the deep lilac floral and it is beautiful and can go with multiple tops I have."

"I ordered the spring green checkered skirt. I love the outside seems as they keep the shape of the skirt crisp. I found no loose threads or any faults at all. I am going to order the pink checkered skirt as well. The short sleeved sweater in spring green matches this skirt perfectly."

"The description says "voile" which is a fine, soft, sheer fabric. (check the dictionary) This skirt is opaque, stiff, just plain cotton. I don't think it said anything about the outside seams, tho the ad does now after all the complaints. But REALLY the worst thing is that there is very little movement in this skirt and I expected it to MOVE! Not THIS fabric. I've returned it and won't much trust the descriptions anymore. No dancing in this one!"

"This skirt could have been so cute; instead, they sewed the seams on the outside which gave it a "cheap" look, rather than a strong construction. Also, there was hardly any waistband. It would have been better to put a few more dollars into the construction of the clothing, then to make it look cheap."

"The detail can't be seen in the catalog picture or on-line, so I was somewhat disappointed in the exposed stitch style of the skirt (looks like it is inside-out). I would have preferred a white or cream background instead of ecru. The underskirt gives it some structure."

"I bought two skirts but I'm sending them both back. The fabric is too stiff for the full skirt. The colors are not spring like at all. The lilac has a tan background not white or even off white. I was disappointed but I do love other products from Chadwicks. I'm still a fan!"

"Fabric and style is very pretty. But skirt was spoiled by cheap looking seems on the outside. Had to return."

"A light cotton skirt for warm weather. Pretty color, and I'm a fan of cotton's breathability. Fits according to the size chart. It's an inexpensive material so the sale price seems to be its true value, but these feminine styles that are so becoming to women of all sizes are not always easy to find. Long may they be available!"

"I'm a long time seasonal customer. For Easter, I ordered the violet/yellow skirt w/the matching sweater. I opened the package, and a horrendous smell filled the room, giving me an instant headache. I immediately sealed it off and sent everything back w/a request to refund my purchase, plus the shipping fees. Ugh!"

"Who ever thought you could wear this skirt with an "inside out" theme was waaaay off. This purchase was a disappointment for this long time customer. A skirt that looked this classy in the magazine was no where near classy once I got it home. I even thought it was sewed inside out until I saw in on the cover and could see the exposed stitching. Certainly not my Easter dress worthy. Exposed stitching on the gores, the waistband, and the hem ??? This was a clear miss.It went from classy to trashy in an instant."

"Ordered the lilac and peach in order to see which I liked best. The lilac has a deep tan background, not light as it looks in the catalog. There is white vertical topstitching on each panel seam-it looks like the skirt is inside out and cheapens it. Now I am out shipping costs both ways!!!"

"I have been a customer for over 15 years, and love the fashion and styles this company has offered.However, the floral skirt recently purchased was a terrible disappointment. It looks and feels "cheaper" than I had expected. The stitching is uneven and glaringly loud. For the full price paid, I feel it was a let-down."

"This is a great skirt for the money - it is swingy and classic. It's pretty hard these days to find normal, classic looks like these - this is what Chadwicks is about. Will have this skirt for a long time to come."

"I love the look of this skirt on me. I continue to receive compliments evertytime I wear it. It's very versatile, dressing it up or down. I wear a size 8 and the 8 fits me perfectly. I do not need to iron it. I just machine wash, machine dry for about 5 minutes and hang dry. I will be buying another color today."

"The color is beautiful, but the fit and the construction are off. The hips of the underskirt run quite small, and, consequently, the waistband is two inches too big on me. The choice to have the edging on the outside is not a good look. I will be taking this to my seamstress and having her take a couple of inches out of the waistband, and then turn the voile overskirt inside out so that the seams do not show. It would also be nice to have this available in the pastel shades of pink, blue, green, purple, coral, and yellow."

"I love this skirt. I love that it is lined and and I love the way it swings. Rather retro and perfect. The finish is not the best, loose threads and edges here and there, but I would still recommend it."

"I love this skirt. I love how it looks on the model. I keep checking frequently on your web-site to see what your inventory is like re: this particular skirt. I wear a size 6... when you have this print in stock, you have the larger sizes or none in stock. When and if you get a size 6 Black/White Gingham... I will immediately buy it. I love the look (and I'm not a gingham-sort of gal).Thanks!"

"I wore this for Easter and I got SO many compliments. It's very comfy and is perfect for spring/summer. The only bummer is it's not fun to iron after washing."
