School Uniform Knit Gathered Skort
Great little skort
I bought this skort for my 8 year old grand-daughter who loves wearing Land's End jumpers to school but we have to put bike shorts underneath since she is pretty active and, at this age, not worried about modesty. Many of the items I have purchased from Land's End are a little too long for her and this skort was the right length for her plus it came out of the dryer "ready to wear". One of the major selling points of the Land's End school clothes for me is their colors do not fade and they last year after year through regular wash cycles. She attends a private school and each year they accept used clothing to offer students through their "school closet" - these clothes last so long, we always donate her outgrown uniforms so someone else gets even more wear time from them. I highly recommend the Land's End clothing line.

Best of the skorts for active girly girls
Size is pretty true. Washes great. Most forgiving of the skorts we have tried from LA. Doesn't inappropriately show my daughter's butt when she's playing on the floor or kneeling in her seat.

Navy Blue faded after 2 washes, runs large
Disappointed in the quality from the day I first got it. It looked like it would fade easily and it did after only two washes. Washed it inside out, cold setting for darks and all necessary precautions, but it still faded. It runs large, I could have used 1 size smaller.

Love the Knit Skort
The knit fabric is comfortable and washes well. My daughter loves pockets and this is one of the few skorts I have found that has them. Thanks for making this skort!!!

We LOVE this skort!
My daughter now attends a school requiring her to wear a uniform. So began my search for navy bottoms. Let me count the ways that this skirt is perfect.
1. It comes in navy.
2. It fits true to size. My daughter is 5 YO, 43" and 41 lbs. I ordered a size 5 and it fits perfectly!
3. It's 100% cotton = the fabric is substantial and comfy.
4. It washes and dries beautifully. No ironing here, ladies!
5. It has POCKETS!!! A girl needs a place to keep her treasures.
6. It's a skort...love.
7. The waist is elastic. No fussy buttons or zippers. Easy on/easy off.
8. My 5 YO daughter likes it and wears it without complaint.
If your child wears a uniform, this is the skort to buy. I purchased two, but would have bought 5 (one for every school day) had I known how fabulous it was going to be.

Look it runs big but i see that as a good thing!
Simply the easiest and most comfortable to wear. Since these became available they are simply the uniform bottom of choice. Yes, they do run about a size large but that just means my size 14 girl will be able to wear them a few years longer. Easy to wash, wash is done an Friday and we just warm up the skort in the dryer and hang it to dry over the weekend. I never leave them to fully dry in the machine as it causes to much wear and tear on any of her uniforms. Additionally they do not shorten due to the dryer itself.

Way too big
I ordered size 16 for my 12-year-old, who is about 5'4" tall.
I would describe her as average built, but the waist on this skirt was way too big on her (it is not adjustable).
The length is pretty short, so I can't go down a size (that'll be too short).
THe skirt itself looks too baggy. I'll definitely return this and won't recommend to others.

What a disappointment..
The skirt is way too big for it's size. it's possible that the measurements on the sizing chart are either inaccurate or this item does not follow normal sizing. The gathers make the hips look really big. And the inner shorts are also big and loose. Would have loved to return it, but since it's an international order, the return shipping cost is prohibitive. Won't be wearing it at all. Will have to look for someone who might look good in this - although I'm really not hopeful.

So comfy, waist in big girl sizes runs big
My daughter wore these last year for kindergarten and loved them. Super comfortable and I loved the built-in shorts. They held up really well. We just ordered a size 7 for the new school year because the length on the 6 is way too short on her. She is definitely a size 7 in bottoms and is of average/athletic build so I was surprised to find that the waist on the size 7 is so loose on her. We will hold onto it and hope she grows into it later this year.

Doesn't appear true to size
Waist is large for the size and I'm afraid it will be too short to wear to school.
