Women's Knit Jacquard A-line Skirt
It's OK. You may want to wait for it to go on sale -- a lot -- before purchasing.
I was disappointed in this skirt, particularly at this price point. It is not lined and it doesn't feel substantial. The fabric seems cheap and I haven't washed it yet, but I have a feeling it might pill after a while. Finally, it rides up as I walk so it ends up being above my knees after a block or so. I would have returned it if I hadn't needed something to wear the next morning; the price is just too high for the quality of the skirt. On the plus side, it's very comfortable and I like the way it looks.

Small waist, generous hip; love the fabric
If that's your shape, try this skirt. I am 5'3" tall, 120 lbs, hippy, and seldom find garments which work well with my shape. I LOVED the cozy, easy-to-wear feel of this skirt and found it was actually too generous in the hip. It is not an A-line so the wider hip didn't fall right. I wish the skirt had worked because I loved the feel of the fabric and the print.

Covers the knees. Great with boots. It is casual enough but can also be dressed up. Love this skirt!

I absolutely love this skirt. It is soft and comfortable while looking dressy and polished. I am fairly small waisted with bigger hips and it fits me perfectly. I like the look of the wide waist band, and the a-line skims over what I need hidden and is very flattering. It looks great with a shell/camisole tucked in-- the fabric is heavy enough not to show any bulges from the fabric of the shirt (not sure how it would handle a blouse tucked in). I am 5'7" and it hits me just below my knees, pretty much the way it looks on the model in the picture. I bought the corsage cardigan in raspberry plum to wear with it and they look beautiful together. Seriously, I could not be happier with this purchase.

This Skirt is Wonderful
I can't say enough good things about this skirt. The fabric is wonderful, it's so nicely made, the fit is fabulous. It's not tight like a pencil skirt, but it's not frumpy like an a-line. It falls nicely and is a great length - just below the knees. It looks wonderful with boots. My only complaint is that there aren't multiple colors to buy. If there were, I'd likely get them all.

Wonderful skirt - very versatile
The fit is great! The fabric is soooo comfortable. I can dress it up or down and always look good. Great addition to any wardrobe. I especially like that it covers my knees. Mature women shouldn't wear above the knee skirts no matter how thin they are.

Nice fabric. Elastic waist too small.
This skirt is way too small and has a large elastic waist band that is not mentioned in the description. I am a consummate "medium" buyer and the majority of Lands End items fit me well. The waist in this skirt is too wide for a petite frame and the elastic is too tight. This leads the stretchy fabric to pull around my hips and thighs which is not attractive. I will be returning this item and not simply exchanging for a larger size.
On the plus side, the fabric is soft with a nice pattern. The length is what I expected.

Longer than appears in photo
I bought this skirt on sale. For some reason - the photo in the plus-size picture shows a knee-length skirt, while the photo in the "regular" size shows a calf-length skirt. The skirt is calf-length, and I don't wear long skirts, so am either giving it to a friend or returning it. It's made of very soft, stretchy material. It's not as thick as a wool skirt would be for winter, but it has a bit of that look. It would be a great fall skirt.

I finally have a skirt that is flattering and that does not hange higher in the back then the front when wearing. this is very flattering to my figure and so comfortable. I wish they had in black and navy would buy in more colors. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

Overall nice skirt
I am a size 10 but sized down for this skirt like I do for many of the knits and it looks similar to the model, maybe a bit tight at the waist but the next size up would have had too much fabric for that look. The fabric is medium weight not too light and a nice chevron pattern for a change. The waistband is also very wide, like made out of a thick piece of elastic so I don't think it would look good with your top tucked in but it is fine with a top or sweater that covers it up. I never tuck anything into skirts but somebody who does might not like this design.
