MADE BY EILEEN FISHER EXCLUSIVELY FOR GARNET HILL A classic A-line skirt loosens up in a lightweight linen weave cut on the bias for great drape. A raw-edge double hem gives an interesting edge. Rib-knit waistband with drawcord. Below-knee length. 100% organic linen. Imported.
I bought this skirt in smoke, the color and fit are exactly as in the photo. I ordered L (I'm either M or L in Eileen Fisher) based on the measurements, and I think I would have been better off with M, but unfortunately it's sold out. Still, I like the skirt very much. It is very thin (I had to double check the tag to see whether it was cotton or linen) but not see-through, at least in this color. It's a great skirt to pair with a casual tee for daily casual wear. It wrinkles easily as linen always does, but it adds to its relaxed feel. I love the drawstring (really there only for decorative purposes). Highly recommend, but maybe consider going down a size for a more fitter look in the hips. Looking forward to spending many carefree spring and summer afternoons in this.
With the weather over 80 degrees, this skirt is supremely easy to wear, looks great and is incredibly comfortable. If there were more colors, I would certainly purchase another one. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 5-star rating is that it is so sheer, it needs a lining.
I love this skirt. The material is soft, drapes well, and is not too short so the line is elegant. Can be worn for many months here in NC with boots or sandals. Goes with everything in my wardrobe so I consider this skirt an excellent value.
As a long time enthusiast of Eileen Fisher, I was eager to get this skirt. I tried it on and was disappointed in the cut, the fabric and the quality. It is NOT Eileen Fisher quality. Since then I have noticed other products sadly lacking in the quality I have come to expect from Eileen Fisher

This is a great skirt! The price is a little high, but that's what you get with Eileen Fisher. The styling is beautiful - there is just the right amount of flare to the skirt so that it looks fun without being loaded down with a lot of material. It falls just as depicted on the model, and is the perfect length. I was wary of the drawstring waistband (I didn't want to look shlubby), but the waist lies nice and flat. Pay attention to the sizing guide listed - I ordered the XS (I'm usually a small), and it fit perfectly.
