Nice - with reservations -
The fabric of this skirt is that generic gauzy Indian material, not a rich, sleek fabric as suggested by the photo. However, it is generously cut and drapes quite elegantly. It runs large, so a Small fits me well, although 10-12 is my normal skirt size. I agree with other reviewers in that I wish these clever reversible skirts were available in Petite lengths.
Best Traveling Skirt -
By: Shully from N.Y.C.
I purchased my third reversible skirt and I love wearing them all,so comfortable and attractive. The only problem is that I need to shorten them considerably.
light as air -
I love, love, love this skirt. Especially in this heat wave. It is not clingy, doesn't get sticky, and is cooler than my summer cotton skirts. it is so comfortable. If there is a light breeze, the skirt moves gracefully and gives a feminine touch. It is a bit long. I'm 5'7" with long legs (33" inseam in pants) and it falls to 3" above my ankles. I can wear it to work and out at night. It's absolutely terrific.
travels very well, classic patterns -

Skirt is shorter than other reversibles that I have from Orvis, but still below knees which I require. I'm 5'5" and 180 lbs; the large fits comfortably. Navy pattern is classic on both sides; goes with everything. I paired with a red cashmere cardi for Easter to many compliments. It has already travelled to 3 continents with zero wrinkles and rarely needs cleaning due to skillful pattern. I would buy more similar in a 'winter' palette.
Lovely skirt -
By: Fritzi from Midwest city
This is a lovely skirt. The paisley print is sophisticated and elegant. The skirt can be worn informally or in dressier situations. I find it a just bit dressier than other skirts of this type that Orvis sells. I wear mine to work. As for the length, I am 5' 6'' and it skims my ankles, which I don't mind. Thus for an average woman it would probably be longer than in the photo.
Way shorter than it was supposed to be -
I just got my skirt and was excited because I have an Orvis pull-on reversible skirt in red that I love. But when I opened the package, I thought at first I had been sent the wrong item. The product description says that it's "about 34" long". Nope - my skirt is barely 30" in length. I think this is an unacceptable variation in length, and unfortunately I have to return this item. The pattern is pretty though.
This skirt was really lovely - it hung beautifully and both sides of the reversable fabric were just the sort of cool sophisticated yet easy design that I like. However, it was far too long for me - an average English woman size - and to have altered it would have spoiled the balance and swing of the skirt. What a shame! Wish it could have been better proportioned as I don't wear long skirts - mid-calf would have been lovely.
