Rated 4 out of 5Â by Karibari The white is a smidge sheer
I bought this in the white, and while it is a fabulous layering piece, I wouldn't wear it alone unless you have a bodycon under it. For a 5'2" girl, I'm finding it to be too long when worn as a skirt (as it drags on the ground), so I will have to mend it a bit. However, when wearing it as a dress, the length works well (though a bit longer than shown on the model). The fabric is very thin and casual looking, so I can't imagine someone getting away with this as a formal piece, but that's not what it was made for anyway. A great piece if you don't mind hemming it! :)
Tip: If you wear it layered over or under another fp skirt (as in the floral godet duster like I do), it looks fabulous!

I don't often write horrible reviews for FP clothes, but this skirt is def one piece I have little good to say about. This is coming from a gal who lives for warm bright colors and feminine styles. In this skirt I was thrilled to find both...a tangerine dream. Then it arrived. Basics first. I am 5'5" and measure 38-26-36. I normally wear S or XS in FP bottoms. I went for XS and it was still roomy. If there was an XXS, it would fit perfectly. The length was actually great, which makes the rest so sad. I can wear this in bare feet and the hem is just off the ground. OK. Here goes. The tangerine color is not as bright as it appears online. The fabric is very thin and cheap looking IMO. This honestly looks like a discount store beach cover up. I assumed I could wear this with while frilly tops and boots, etc. NOT! The only place I could see myself using this on vacation, when you need disposable pieces that can get wet and sandy to throw over your bikini. Even then, I would not pay $88! The thin elastic waist adds to the low quality vibe. The worst is still to come..the ruffle. The unfinished ruffle hem is not bad but the ruffle up the front of the skirt is hand cut with no particular symmetry. I truly believe that the seam was stitched up and then a wavy line was cut freehand with scissors at the fabric edge. I sent this back. I wish FP would use more bright warm colors outside of beachwear and bras. :-(

I purchased the Cascade skirt in the tangerine color at a Free People shop for $29.99 last week and I love it! Contrary to what others have said, this skirt is not transparent. Of course you can't wear dark leopard print underwear under it, but that seems to be common sense, right? Other reviews make it seem like this skirt is made of Saran Wrap, but it is definitely a decent weight. The fit is great and it looks adorable both as a dress and a skirt. As I mentioned, I bought this in one of the shops and for $29.99 you can't beat it. I may go back and pick up the black one as well. Definite thumbs up!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by hihihishite HUGE rough fabric
This skirt is ridiculously big and cannot be worn as a dress, even with a belt. The material is kinda terry cloth like and more suited for the beach. it looks really basic and plain.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bohoangel5 Lovely piece
I got the black in size Med which is my normal FP size. I am 5' 6"and have to wear this right below my bust if I dont want it draggin on the floor. I got the black since it is more wearable in both Summer and Fall. Still a bit sheer but nothing a slip cant fix.
Lovely piece and I am glad I purchased it!

I got the coral in a large and it is veryyy pretty. Yes, it is a bit sheer but that is what layers are for. I love the fact that you can wear this as a skirt or a dress. The fabric is very soft and comfy. When I wear this as a skirt, it is a little long, so I hike it up to my natural waist and that fixes the length issue. Very pretty!

I bought this skirt in the tangerine color and i can't stop wearing it! I originally tried on the white but it was just too sheer for my liking. I'm normally a Large, but my sister convinced me to get a Medium and it fit perfectly. I love it as a dress, whether casual or formal. I haven't tried it as a skirt yet. i'm still looking for the right top to go with it, but i know I'll find one soon. So if you're looking for an easy breezy skirt/dress, this is it!
