Much darker colour -
I liked this skirt, but the colour was much darker than it appeared in the catalogue, more browns than creams and mauves
Beautiful Skirt -
By: FallColors from Albuquerque, NM
I was looking for something 'easy to wear' and elegant for the fall season. This skirt fits the bill perfectly. Light-weight for travel, neutral colors that go well with many tops. I'm pairing it with the long country suede vest and the long-sleeved ruffle tee. It's a beautiful combination. It can be dressed up with the addition of jewelry of scarf, or more casual without. I love it!
Sizes should be more clear! -
By: snipes from Salt Lake city, utah
Loved the look in the catalog. I needed a 29' in waist and knew that I did not not it to fall off either. Went for the PS....Not enough fabric togo around///A bit disappointed in the actualize item. I order the black silk blouse to wear with the skirt and it is way too dressy for the skirt
Poor quality -
By: chelsie from Bakersfield, CA
I have ordered from you many times and this is the first time I have returned an item because the quality was sooooo poor. Poor quality fabric, poor quality design, and an exorbitant price for the quality of this item. Very disappointing.
Needs an overhaul -
By: pwbinwa from Tacoma, WA
I had hopes of wearing this skirt with a loose jacket to a reunion. It's too long and would have needed to be hemmed. I loved the idea of pockets but the front seams make it look like a kangaroo pouch.
Great skirt -
This is a skirt I'll want to wear often. The very fine wale corduroy is not thick and bulky, so the fabric drapes nicely and will be okay for early autumn when the weather is still warm
kangaroo pouch -
By: swiv from IN
at my age (plus 60) I didn't appreciate the kangaroo pocket in front. Otherwise it's a beautiful skirt- perhaps a bit overpriced
Handsome and Serviceable -
By: mickiknits from Hedgesville, WV
A very fine pinwale cordoroy. Size runs a little large but not much. The feel softens with washing. Pattern is subdued and lovely. Fall will find me wearing this often; it's so versitile.
Bad pocket placement -
By: Osso from Yorkshire
The pockets are advertised as on-seam; they are, but the seams in question are at the sides of the front panel, not at the sides of the skirt. Anything heavier than a handkerchief bumps against the front of the thighs with each step, and lands in a heap in your lap when you sit down. It is very bad design and I am extremely disappointed.
|Corduroy: the cloth of kings, designed for women|
The fabric of the French royal court
Quality corduroy is all about quality yarn. Corduroy takes its name from "cloth of the king," or "cord du roi," fashioned for the sporting use of the French royal court in the 1600s.
Durable, Fashionable Comfort
Corduroy is well suited for rugged use. With more yarns per square inch than most fabrics and a distinctive corded nap, corduroy offers durability and protection by construction. Extra yarns in the weft, or horizontal component, pass over the warp yarns, skipping two or three vertical yarns before diving back under the weave. Held securely in the middle by the vertical yarns, the weft yarns are then snipped, freeing both ends, then trimmed and brushed to a fine, soft nap.
HIgh-Quality Milled Fabric
Orvis sources corduroy from the finest mills around the world, mills that weave high-quality yarns into cloths true to corduroy's sporting heritage. The cloth is then brushed to create the soft, sueded finish.
