Fun piece for Fall!
This is a really cute piece for your fall wardrobe and will pair nicely with a lot of other pieces. I like the button-front design, as well as the pockets. Quality of the cord fabric is good -- more of a wide wale style. The 'redwood' color reads as a reddish-brown tone, and matches the online image.
Fit: I'm 4'11". 110# with an almost 30" waist, small hips, not much of a bum. My usual skirt sizes for J Crew Retail or Factory are a 0 Regular, or a 2P. I had to exchange the 0 for a 00, as I found this item ran a wee bit large -- enough that i could take in a good inch or so. (The 0 gave a slightly boxier and wider side profile, while the 00 is more fitted but still comfortable.) The cord fabric also has some stretch. Customer Service said the 00 waist is 29 1/4", while 0 is a 30 1/4" so keep it in mind. Length is just above my knees (but I'm short - this will be a true mini on some.)
All in all, I'm very pleased and highly recommend this piece!

disappointed, as waist is huge
Adorable skirt, but the fit is off. The waist is HUGE and measures 31" on a size 2, which means it sits low on my waist. To fit my waist I would have to take it in over 5". I guess I expected something more aline and fitted in the waist, as it appears in the photo, and as this style of skirt should be. It is a fairly straight cut. It is great if you have a boyish figure with little difference between waist and hips, but even then I would size down. I have a 25" waist, 36" hips and have no problem with similar style skirts from other retailers.
Other than the fit issues the skirt is cute. The color is a chestnut brown rather that the beautiful reddish rust I was expecting. Still pretty, but more orangey brown than reddish rust. Also for note the buttons don't unbutton all the way down. Only the top 2 or 3 buttons open and the rest are decoration. In all I had such high hopes for this. I'll probably keep it and take in the waist, but this should have been an easy skirt to get right.

Fun fall skirt
I'm happy with this purchase in spite of the skirt not being quite the way it appears online. The colour is as depicted, but the length is shorter than I anticipated. I really like that the buttons on the bottom don't open the skirt, which makes it more comfortable (without the worry that it will pop open up to my waist when I sit down). I would love to see more pieces like this in knee or just-above-the-knee lengths that are flattering to more body types.
