Â by Tarahbella A lovely whimsical mess waiting to happen
The moment I received this maxi shirt I was in love! I ordered the coral color in a small size. Despite other reviews the skirt fit fine for me â true to size. I love how airy the skirt is even on hot Hawaiian days. I love the corset detail at the waist band and the lace details from top to bottom. I was however worried about the delicate material and the unfinished edge of the skirt. Iâve worn the skirt two times and the bottom of the skirt has started to fray and fray and fray. At first I actually liked the idea of the âwornâ look, but was soon to realize that the more I wear this skirt, the more and more it will only fray. I love this skirt so much and will wear it until itâs a heaping mess of frayed ends. A bit of a bummer.
OVERALL: love it. will wear it down to it's last thread.

I tried this in the store and was very excited but it turned out, like the others said, way way way too big. It could literally fall off my hips to the floor. What is going on, FP? How can your sizing be so inconsistent? This skirt is beautiful and I'm sure many petite girls would appreciate if you adjusted the sizing and re-released it! Please consider it!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by andreah818 Way too big and damaged
This skirt runs way too big! I'm 25" waist so I thought XS would be perfect. It turned out to fit like a medium. I was so disappointed as it looked so beautiful :(
Not to mention, there was a rip on the side! I'm returning it immediately. It's not worth it!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by karmakey Color Contrast??
Okay, I loved this skirt when I first saw it online. I got the indigo color; and thought it should look something like what I saw on screen. A total disappointment! There's actually no color contrast whatsoever between the ribboning and the base of the skirt! In the photo (and the skirt the model has on), it looks as though there are two completely separate colors, used in the skirts makeup. A light purple/lighter purplish indigo color; and then a darker, more prominent purple, for the ribboning. The skirt I got was a wash of the same lighter indigo color, with no contrast at all- just one color, really. The other bad part about it was the thin material, and the unfinished hemline. I haven't worn it yet, but already see one of the crochet flowers is just begging to fall apart.
On the part of Free People, I felt that the picture (especially that of the indigo), showed a misrepresentation of what the skirt actually was. So, if you're like me- and buy the skirt specifically for the color contrast, you'd be bitterly disappointed. A friend of mine was swearing that they sent me the wrong skirt! I must admit, I felt a little silly pointing out to them; that indeed it WAS the same skirt- and it just didn't look anything like the one in the picture. I mostly gave the two stars to that "still held in my head" image, of what the skirt should have looked like- and the idea behind the design. I wish...
Rated 4 out of 5Â by jenniferrhart Gorgeous but delicate
I bought this skirt for my rehearsal outfit, and it was the perfect skirt for a warm summer day rehearsal in a greenhouse. :) Despite its length, it is extremely cool and airy...I would definitely be interested in buying it in other colors if it were not for the fact that the fabric is extremely delicate...I only wore it three times before I had two rips on the outer shell, and one on the lining. :-/ I brought it to my FP store, and they replaced it immediately. I do love the skirt, and receive many compliments on it, just beware of the fabric! Also, as others have stated, it does run a bit large. I bought a small - my normal size - and the skirt sits pretty low on the hip. I liked it that way, though, so kept it rather than sizing down.

I went to the store to purchase this skirt, but when I tried it on, I was disappointed. The skirt was too big on me, and long. I wish FP will make petite sizes. However, the skirt is beautiful and will fit taller person just fine.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by foxinsideabox Flawed, love it anyways.
I adore the detail on this skirt and have wanted it for some months now; so I finally took the plunge and purchased it in XS (ivory). It runs large, much too large. I am 5'6 and 108 lbs. I am normally size S but even the XS fits loosely at the waist.
Also, do note that the material will inevitably fray away at the base. It would have been nicer had the finish been more solid, as I find myself trimming it away after each use.
Despite all of this, it is too beautiful of a skirt for me to forgo. I'll definitely be using it a ton this summer!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Blueyedbrunette beautiful but huge
i ordered this in an xs and it was huge! you can adjust the waist a little with the ties but i had to safety pin mine to have it stay up. it's a gorgeous skirt though. i got the lavender color and i love it, i just wish the waist was a little smaller.
