Very Nice Skirt -
Comfortable and well made. The sizing was a bit on the small side so I ordered a size larger than what I normally wear. The cotton does wrinkle after washing but not horribly.

The traditional tailored skirt I was looking for was simply not available in local retail stores. I did not want a super-short or flirty look, but something that would be appropriate in a business environment. You had it. I bought it - and am happy with the purchase. And ... it fits well.

I buy a lot of clothing from Orvis and I have particularly liked the Pleated Vintage Denim Skirts. I wear a size 8, and was confident in buying 2 of these skirts at size 8 (thinking the way in which one skirt fit would be similar to other skirts the same size). That was a very wrong assumption. This skirt is at least 2 sizes off on the large side. It fits like a size 12! Unfortunately, I took both to be hemmed before I realized that they were the wrong size. I tried also washing them in hot water to shrink them, but no luck. The material is lightweight and flimsy and you need to both iron the skirt and wear a slip. Awful product.
This Is Why I Shop at Orvis -
By: ConservativeDresser17 from Charlottesville, VA
This skirt is an excellent example of why I haunt the Orvis Clearance pages, even though Orvis is way above my budget limits. Classic full skirt at calf length(!!!), 100% cotton, trouser styling with fly, pockets that my hands can actually fit in, belt loops *and* discreet elastic for comfort. SO hard to find all of these features in one skirt these days. I have to say I'm disappointed I've seen nothing similar except in denim in the recent catalogs I've received.
Nice material -
By: merlin2 from New York State
I bought the size 12 because other reviews said it ran large. Since it is not a true A-line, it was not roomy enough to use the pockets (I am a math teacher and need to carry keys and chalk in a chalk holder in one pocket and kleenex for students in the other.) The feel of the material is really nice and light, but I had to return it. I would recommend this for someone who is not real full in the hips.
The see through skirt -
By: schube from Overland Park , KS
This skirt requires a slip or you are a window curtain. I was so surprised! Ths skirt was purchased to be worn in this hot summer and so it hangs in my closet with me trying to decide what to do with a see through skirt.
Not the right stuff -
By: Shaharazad from Palm Desert, CA
I was looking forward to this skirt: the style, details, and size were fine, but the fabric was a big let down--more like a poor flannel than a genuine poplin. I really did not like it. The color, too, was not quite right: I ordered stone. I have decided to return it.
not like denim of similar style -
By: Griggsy from PA
I have a great denim skirt from Orvis that looks the same as this, but on arrival I found this to be more skimpily cut...which makes it unworkable for those of us needing a full skirt. Too bad because in this season of "pencil skirt" styles skirts for those of us with hips are hard to find.

Why on earth do Orvis's buyers think we want to IRON??
Pure cotton comfort, ideal for travel
Orvis’s Signature Poplin for women is made of pure cotton, but woven out of tightly bound yarn to be virtually abrasion resistant and naturally water resistant. When the average droplet lands, the tightness of the weave allows the water to bead up and roll right off.
Breathable and lightweight
But how could such a fabric be so breathable and lightweight? The tightly bound, strong yarn is woven in a pattern that creates a durable, yet breathable material. Yarns woven vertically are of a mid-weight, and those woven horizontally are of a lesser weight. The threads interlock, creating a strong and relatively thin, lightweight fabric. Even in hot weather, you’ll feel cool and comfortable.
Durable and easy-care for travel
What makes our Signature Poplin so desirable to our customers is its ability to be packed and squished and still come out crisp and clean, making it ideal for travel. It is resilient, so it will withstand years and years of daily wash and wear.
Classic styling in pure, comfortable cotton
Try our pure cotton Signature Poplin clothing, crafted in classic styles that complement any wardrobe. Your comfort is guaranteed.
