School Uniform 2-button Stretch Skort (Above The Knee)
Not what I expected
This was way too short it was about mid-thigh and it was HUGE! The waist was so big you could fit a chicken into it and the bottom of the skirt poofed out like a bag. It wrinkles very easily and looks horrendous. Normally above the knee's are supposed to be 3 inches above the knee but this skirt was about 6. I ordered the navy and khaki and both were extremely unpleasant. You need to make slim size in this skirt and make it longer! And by slim I mean your slim is not even a slim! It felt how a regualr should have felt! But, I did love the belt loopholes and buttons those were cute. The threading not so much. Normally it does look good but it just didn't for this one. I ordered a 16 and I'm 5'5.5 and have a slim figure.

Very cute fit
I like the waist adjuster. I think this feature should be noted in the web site.

VERY VERY SHORT -- order size smaller than usual as fit is BIG
I bought this in Navy and thought it was short. But the tan is more than an inch shorter. The fit is wonderful. Was disappointed they were not as long as the navy. I will likely wear and hope I do not feel uncomfortable with the length in public.

Fit was just a little on the small side. Granddaughter normally wears a 6, but had to size up in this skort. Fabric appears to be great quality, but can't comment on how it will wash or wear since haven't worn yet; waiting for school to begin. Skort is well made. Compared to other brands, just has a little more pizzazz. Color is a med-dark kaki. Length is perfect.

Why aren't slim sizes offered?
I bought this in 7 for my daughter in both colors, hoping it would fit for next school year. She's quite slim, but I was hoping the adjustable waist would make up for the lack of slim sizes--Not even close! Even cinched as far as I can make it, the waist was still loose on her, and then of course, it was all bunched up, which can be uncomfortable and chafe her waist. The quality seems great, this is exactly what she needs for school, but unless LE starts making this in slim sizes, I don't think it'll ever work for us. I've ordered a 6, hoping it might work better, but the LE rep said the Little Girls 6 is only 1/2 inch smaller in the waist, but 1 1/2 inches shorter. :( I'm not optimistic that it will work, but we like the skirt so much we have to try!
I admit, I'm a little baffled that some swimsuits are available in slim sizes, but many of these staple clothing items are not. I'm hoping Lands End will increase it's slim offerings in the future!

We like the style and color of the khaki because it doesn't seem to fade

Well made, classic skirt
I purchased this skirt for school for my daughter in a size 10, which she normally wears in clothes from anywhere. It was HUGE. Returned it for a size 8, which is still a bit big, but fits well enough. She LOVES this skirt and wears it so much that I ordered 2 more. Compared to khaki bottoms purchased at other places. the skirt is of the highest quality, which is expected from Lands End. The simple lines, built in shorts, belt loops, pockets - all of it together makes the perfect skirt. Well made. High quality material. Good stitching. Not too long, not too short. Highly recommend.

Wonderful basic that is both comfy and classic!
As a Petite female who typically wears size 00/0 or a 26 in bottoms, the girl's sizes worked perfectly for me as they corresponded well to my height!!! Therefore, they fall a couple inches above the knee but still within a range that is appropriate (a few inches longer than the fingertip rule). However, there are some sizing differences between the navy and khaki. I wear a 14 in the navy. I had to order a 12 in the khaki since the size 14 was a full inch bigger at the waist, as well as an inch and a half longer. Love these skorts, especially because they're all cotton!!

Great skort, but huge variance within each size
I ordered this skort in tan and navy, size girls 14. The navy fit well, but the tan one was quite tight, at least 1" smaller at the waist. Then both pairs shrank in the wash! I re-ordered in size 16. The navy skort again fit fairly well, but the tan skort was enormous, at least 2" wider than the navy. The adjustable elastic inside the tan size 16 is much longer than it needs to be when unstretched, and loops out on the insides instead of lying flat.
We love this style, so I'm not sure what we're going to end up keeping. Be aware that there isn't much consistency in the sizing. However, they are comfortable, have just enough stretch, and look great on, whether for a school uniform or regular clothes. The fabric does tend to pick up lint.
Recommended with reservations about sizing!
