Rated 3 out of 5 by 312JCgirl Beware, very weird fabric
As this is an online only item, I fell in love with this skirt when I saw it in the Style Guide. It looks so fresh and crisp and I can see wearing it with a casual top and sandels, or with a blazer and heels. I also have a major weakness for pleated sweater skirts. I bought the navy color of the skirt. I was completely surprised by the fabric of this skirt because based upon the photos I thought it was a tighter knit, sweater material. However, it feels almost like a thin terry cloth material, not at all what I was expecting. It also looks like it will snag very easily. I should have read the product description more carefully, as it does say it is a made from a "spongey material". Sadly, I will be returning the skirt. I would say the fit is true to size. If you have a proportionally small waist you may be able to go down a size, but I liked the fit in my normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sp326 Love the fabric!
I read the other reviews and ordered the skirt with trepidation, but I just received it and the fabric is fantastic! It isn't your typical knit, but it is very soft, drapes wonderfully and is very versatile. I intend to take it with me on my next trip - it can be dressed up or down and no worries about wrinkles. I only wish it came in petite sizing as well. For reference, I'm 5'3" and the skirt is more midi than knee length on me, but still very stylish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by brenda212 Bad fabric
I agree with the other reviewer. This fabric has a weird texture that reminds me of the bad polyester sweater suits my granny wore in the early '80s. If you're not 5'9" and size 2, it also won't look as nice as it does on the model--the bulkiness of the fabric just adds to the overall dumpiness of the skirt. This was a return.

I read a couple of the reviews stating that the fabric was weird before purchase. When I saw this in person, I LOVED the texture of the fabric. Yes, it is a poly/cotton blend and a little like a towel. And, yes, it is a bit old school. But that's what I like about it. This is something my grandmother would have worn when she was "rocking" her look. And there was a time when my grandmother was very chic. This skirt is tres cool!

Not loving this fabric. It's like a low-rent terrycloth robe. I love the design, the fit, the color. Everything. Just not the weird stretchy fabric. It is very comfortable but I think it'll snag easily and for the price, not worth the risk.
You're on the right path Jcrew! I feel a comeback in the making.
