"of course in the catalog pics this skirt looked elegant and beautiful, perfect light airy look for summertime.. the material is chiffon, a very fine silk fabric which also appealed to me. However, when this arrived, I was astonished by the atrocious quality of the cut. The side hems were totally fraying and horrendous looking and I hadn't even put it on yet. Apparently Free People does not believe in providing quality construction to its clients, while charging them an arm and a leg.. For what? For the skirt's material, which they destroyed by not finishing the hems? Completely absurd price to ask for such a low quality item. I promptly returned. Also, I found the small to be a bit too small. I am petite 5'2" 115 lbs and normally wear a small, occassionally a medium in tops and dresses because I have a substancial bust line for my size (34D). Upon trying the skirt on, the cheap plastic snap button that holds the skirt wrapped, kept popping off everytime i tried to fasten the inner section, thus sending the whole skirt into a pretty silk pool around my ankles every time i tried. Not worth the fight it put up, for sure."
