Nothing special and shorter than expected
Jcrew- why no skirt lengths for this item? This is definitely closer to the "mini" category and that is with it pulled down onto the hips. The positives: cute fabric, its lined with a light cotton, and it has pockets!!! The negatives: its not particularly flattering. I ordered my usual size, and putting it on, the elastic was tighter than I was expecting so the fabric pulled out and doesn't look gathered. It has a thick elastic band too, so I'm also not sure how well it would stay down on your hips as you moved around, and unless you like really short skirts, its too short to wear at your natural waist. (I'm 5' 6" and bought a medium). I think going up a size would make it have too much fabric and look really frumpy, but I do think it runs a tad small. I'm curvy, and admittedly this style can be difficult with my body type. If you are petite and have a straight figure this will skirt will probably be great on you.

The Perfect Gingham Skirt
I have been looking for a gingham skirt & this one is amazing!!! It's the perfect length for a casual skirt. This will be worn so much this spring & summer.

My new go-to skirt for spring!
I love this skirt! I am always on the hunt for skirts like this when the weather gets warm. I found this to be very TTS. I'm 5'1" and typically a 2/4 in bottoms from JCrew. I ordered a small and found it to be the perfect fit (not too tight in the waist- it leaves me plenty of room to tuck in a top but doesn't look saggy if I decide not to). I purchased this with the intention to wear it on my natural waist and it looks great without being too short on me.
I was VERY excited to see that it was lined as my biggest concern was that it would be too sheer. The pockets are a wonderful bonus! I bought the pineapple print and the chambray and would love to see this in a variety of solid colors. It's the perfect spring/summer skirt!
I haven't washed it yet- but when I do I don't plan to dry it because it looks like the type of waistband that would twist in the dryer.
