Lovely colour

I have got great wear from this serviceable skirt in another colour. Delighted to see this lovely dark green on offer this season.

Lovely Linen

I loved the colour, the cut and the fabric of this skirt. It's comfortable, soft and looks great.
At 5'6'' the regular came almost to my ankles and I am happy with that. My small niggle is with the fabric belt, that adds nothing to the skirt and is a bit annoying along with the side zip. Luckily it is removable and I took it out.

Elegant skirt

This is almost everything I could want in a linen skirt. It’s soft, sleek, elegant and comfortable. I wish it was available in size 6 Regular instead of only Petite, as it’s a couple of inches shorter than I would have liked. Seasalt, please could we have the size 6s in your Petite range available Regular length?

Colour run!

This is a good quality comfortable skirt with the perfect (for me), length. My only complaint is the colour run. I only wash it by hand but the colour of the washing water is that of deep red wine (aubergine originally)!

Loved but no longer

I adored this skirt and had worn it about 7 times when the split at the front went while I was at work today. It is now unwearable and I am a bit sad about it. For reference I was jus squatting down when it happened (not doing gymnastics!)

the perfect skirt for holidays and hot weather

I bought this skirt to take on holiday and it was perfect. Comfortable for walking around doing touristy stuff in the day, and long and elegant for evenings. It is made from a really nice weight linen that kept me cool and didn't crease too much. My favourite purchase this year by a mile.

nice and flattering

Nice skirt, pitty the hellebore size 18 was smaller than the dark night one, Had to send it back. If you doubt the size than take the small one. It also gets wider? while wearing.

Excellent quality

I sent for a size 18 which proved to be too big, but rather than send it back and find 16 had gone, I took it to be professionally altered. It is now perfect. The linen is beautifully heavy and colour goes with everything. The only reason I'm not giving the full 5 anchors is that the skirt was much bigger than the usual 18.

Lovely comfy skirt

I love linen and i love this skirt , looks great on and so very comfortable. Good length on me (5"8). i think this will be making a regular appearance throughout the summer and might try it with boots as the days get colder.

Very good smart-casual choice

To be honest these are rather big in the waist but I forgive them that because they are a really good option to have in the wardrobe. They can be dressed up with a linen blouse but also go well with a T-shirt. They are cool in the heat and work well in cooler weather with a soft jacket. I have found that they get softer and improve with washing although it is worth adding a 'colour catcher' as even on a gentle 30 they give some colour.
