100% Cotton

Our Poldown Skirt is all about the print. Made from soft cotton chambray with an eye-catching conversational print, it looks lovely with a plain cotton top or T-shirt. It falls below the knee and has a flat front, flaring out into pleats which give it a flattering fullness and plenty of movement. A concealed size zip makes it easy to slip on and off. A unique piece that’s sure to become a summer favourite.

Heartbroken Due To Size Being Way Off

My waist size is between two sizes of this skirt so I ordered the larger of the sizes to assure that I would have sufficient room to wear the skirt with either a blouse tucked into the waist band or wear one outside the waistband.

The size I ordered should fit me. Alas, though the skirt that I received is tagged as being the size I ordered, the actual measurement of the waist is 3.5 cm larger than waist measurment listed for the size above what I ordered. That is, my skirt is actually a size larger than what I ordered.

The skirt is way too large for me. I can pull it over my hips without opending the zipper. The skirt does not sit at my waist line, but down low on my hips.

This leaves me with a dilemma: Either to keep the skirt and pay to have it altered by 10 cm (four inchest) to fit me, or, pay to return the skirt. As I live in the US, I have to pay for shipping and returns in addition to the conversion rate from sterling to US dollars. (I lose out as the dollar is worth 20% less than a British sterling pound.)

Unfortunately, this skirt is mismarked for its size. This reflects a slip in quality/sizing control. I LOVE all of the Seasalt clothing that I have bought this summer. The coat, tops, and dresses have bit and are true to the measurements provided for them. (An article of clothing should be within 2 cm of the measurements provided for its size.) To be over 8 cm larger than what is cited for the size I ordered is poor quality control.

I love the skirt. It is beautiful. The style is divine and the material is of exceptional quality, but the size issue means that I may not order any skirts or pants from Seasalt and will just stick to dresses and tops. I am heartbroken as the size I need is not available now for an exchange and I was looking forward to being able to wear this skirt. I will price the cost to return it compared to the cost to return ship it and decide what to do. I shouldn't have to make this decision as the skirt should be near the measurement provided for the size it is marked and the size I ordered. I give one Anchor for the size issue and 5 anchors for the quality of the material and design. Unfortunately, size is a major factor in clothing fitting properly.

Dear Across the Pond
Thank you for your review of the Poldown Skirt. We're sorry to hear that the sizing for the skirt appeared to be out of synch, and can see that one of our Customer Service Team has already been in touch with you to resolve your predicament.

Nicely shaped skirt

This is a very nicely shaped skirt. Slightly flared and plenty of pretty fabric to be a real eye catching item. Nice tidy waistband which I find very flattering. My only gripe is that, for me, the skirt is a bit long and a choice of petite length would be marvellous. I do hope that Seasalt will consider us ladies of a slightly shorter stature and introduce a range of lengths for their dresses, skirts and trousers.

A favourite skirt

I have bought lots of skirts from Sesalt over the years as they always have shapes that fit me so well but this one is my favourite so far. The fabric is soft and has a lovely texture to is and is full but not too much so. T he colour is very quiet which makes the overall pattern design look subtle rather than overwhelming. Perfect just below knee length for 5'3" height in size 8.

I am delighted with my purchase. The skirt is light and perfect for the hot weather. The fit is perfect as is the length. The pattern is quite subtle but beautiful and the colour is lovely. I wish that I'd ordered the white top to go with it but Seasalt have sold out of it in my size.

This is a beautifully cut skirt in a lovely soft cotton. The heron print for me is reminiscent of Crysede textiles from the 1930s and I featured the skirt in my blog recently for that reason. Seasalt at its best!

My new fav skirt!

The material is soft and the pattern subtle in a lovely muted indigo. I've never had to wash indigo garments before wearing and couldn't find any reference to this on the label (see previous review). I wore it for work with a white top and white underwear and didn't have any problems with colour-run. - I wouldn't have expected anything else from Seasalt clothing!

Wash first

Lovely cool skirt for hot summer days. I love the quirky Helford Heron fabric pattern and know this will be another Seasalt favourite.
My only disappointment was that I had forgotten that indigo items need to be washed before they are worn so I don't end up with blue hands! Good to have the clearly visible label there to remind me.

Love it!!!!

This is a beautiful skirt which will now become one of my favourites. I love the design, fabric and style. Please make more of these. The length and fit is perfect - true to size. My very first skirt was a similar style with anchors on so when I saw this I knew I had to have it.
