School Uniform Box Pleat Skirt (Top of the Knee)
Nice skirt, not really top of the knee
My girls (5'4" and 5'8") wear these as uniform skirts. We have trouble getting them to the knee. The Junior sizes are short and the Adult size comes no smaller than a 4. If you order the below-the-knee skirt it is MUCH longer, way below the knee. Please make this skirt in sizes 0 and 2. It is a uniform skirt after all and worn by young ladies. We give them a good shake and hang dry them and have no problems with the pleats looking good.

The skirt fits good in the waist but the length was very long.
I bought this skirt for my daughter. The skirt was so long that I had to have it hemmed and the pleats do not lay flat after being washed. You have to iron the skirt before you can wear it. I don't know that I would have bought this skirt if I had known all of this. The skirt was not what I was expecting.

Nice skirt - be sure to get it out of the dryer promptly
I bought a size 10 for my 8 YO who generally seems to be between size 8 and 10.
We had to adjust the waistband quite a bit - thankfully this skirt has the buttons and elastic to do this.
The length was good. I like how the material hangs, but it's a little wrinkly. Sometimes I have to put it back in the dryer on the Wrinkle Release cycle.

My daughter is 14. She is tall and thin and will be starting in a school with a strict dress code. This skirt looks awesome on her and the lenth is perfect. It is very hard to find skirts in a proper lenth for her long legs that both she and I agree upon. THANK YOU LAND'S END!

Sizing runs very big!
Even though we measured and ordered accordingly, needed to return it to get a skirt that is two sizes smaller than the measurements would otherwise indicate.

I buy this particular skirt year after year. It fits my daughter very well and it isn't too wide on her. I do find that I have to go down a size in this, because she is quite slender, and even then, l have to adjust the waist. Just a great skirt all-around!

Despite using the junior size chart, this skirt is way to big in the waist.
I measured my teenage daughter's waist and ordered the corresponding size based on the junior size chart associated with the skirt. When she tried on the skirt it was so big, she could not wear it. We had to return it.

Cute skirt, color and pleats hold up well with washing
My daughter has been wearing these skirts as part of her uniform for 9 months. I have been very pleased with the lack of f ading and with how well the pleats hold up. I do not have time for ironing and this skirt looks great right out of the dryer. It also is a nice looking skirt. My daughter prefers skirts to skorts because she can wear leggings with it in cooler weather and bike shorts underneath it in warmer weather. I guess you could do that with skorts too but it seems like a lot of layers. Also skorts often look bulkier. Anyway, very pleased and will be ordering the next size up when needed.

Ordered a size 12 for my 11 year old and it is more like a size 16!!!!! Reordered a size 8. Otherwise, a lovely and well made skirt. Shipped perfectly and has a nice texture.

Perfect for my tall height!
Unlike the other reviewers, I am a 17 year old who wanted a quality skirt, not as a uniform. I am 5'11" and got a size 10, as the size chart directed me. It was a tad loose around the waist, so I should have gone a size down, but I can still wear it. I measured the length from the waist and it is 18 inches long. It hits above my knee, slightly past mid-thigh, and is NOT too short. Trust me I hate extremely short skirts as much as parents do, but I had no problems. The pleats are sewn into place so there is no possibility of coming undone. I doubt that your daughters are as tall as me, so I don't think the length should be an issue. However, the lengths have to be different. I ordered in the adult size.
