Petite length

Skirt is lovely colour and fits well. I’d have given it a 5* rating, but I think it’s a bit long to be considered petite. Will probably need to take up slightly. (I’m 5’1”)

Hi Linjwit
Thanks for your lovely review and feedback for your Pencil Lead Skirt.
Sorry to hear that the length wasn't perfect, as even in the Petite length this is one of our longer style skirts, but hope you're able to adapt it to the length you require.
Best wishes Seasalt

I bought this in petite length, and wondered if it would be too short, but, no, it is perfectly proportioned, and is the same midi length as in the picture. It's a wee bit neat round the hips - my fault, not the skirt's! The elasticated waist, at the back, and the side zip, make it easier to wear.

Mixed feelings

Decent skirt and the quality seems good but haven’t actually worn or washed it yet so we’ll see. Delighted with the length of the petite version being only 5’4” but I am a disappointed with colour. Hoping it would be more grey than it is. To me a dark night is not really so navy blue.

Fabulous skirt

Love the length, cut and drape of this stylish skirt. Perfect weight for spring pared with stripy tops or cotton blouse and summer with strappy vests and prints.
I bought the dark blue as I can pair it with anything but agree with other reviewers that the other colours are very wearable.
The size is true and at 5' 6 the regular is to my mid calf. Love it

Pencil lead skirt

Loved this verse coloured pencil skirt and ordered petite length as I am 5ft 4ins and always have to shorten the longer length that I prefer . I could not find the length on chart but understood it would be in proportion to size . I have had to shorten the skirt by several inches and had hoped it would have been shorter with exact length given .

Lovely Linen Skirt

Lovely linen skirt that's soft, light, and breezy. Definitely a wardrobe staple! The forgiving elastic waistband is appreciated as it makes it more comfortable to wear all day long and the length is just right (I'm just under 5'4 and went with the regular size). The belt really only works if you are tucking in a t-shirt or blouse as it makes your top bulge out otherwise. Easy fix as I just remove it when not needed. I went with colour Dark Night as it will take me from spring into summer and even into early autumn, and am now considering getting the Verte as well.
