Review 1 for Eileen Fisher Viscose Jersey Pleated Skirt - Regular
I knew this ran short so I ordered regular instead of petite (I'm 5'1), but I underestimated how small the waist is. I have other EF clothing and I've found that the regular XS fits me the best. I ordered an XS in this and when I pulled the skirt out of the bag, my initial thought was that it looked like it was meant to fit a 5-year old little girl.
The waistband is tiny. Yes, I can stretch it enough to wear it, but it definitely wouldn't be a comfortable fit. It also doesn't have the graceful drape shown in the picture. I think for it to be comfortable and as graceful as the pic, I'd have to go up probably to a M. Unfortunately, no more S's or M's are available, so I can't try a bigger size.
The description says "modern schoolgirl charm" and I'd have to agree with that. Even if a bigger size were available, I'm not sure the skirt would work because at 43, the "schoolgirl charm" look of this might be too strong for me.
Finally, compared to the cotton and wool EF pieces I have, I don't really like the fabric of this skirt all that much.

LOVE this skirt
Date:February 5, 2014
It drapes so well. I am short and full-figured, and I can still wear this, the pleats are soft and pretty. Super happy I got it, could wear with many different things.

Fun, swingy skirt
Date:January 28, 2014
Love this EF skirt: length is perfect (just above the knee), fabric is fluid yet substantial, and construction is top-notch. The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that the wide elastic waist is tight. In this order, I also purchased a pair of EF jeans size 8 and EF linen skirt size S (8-10)--both fit perfectly (jeans are even a little loose). This skirt, however, in S (8-10) is quite tight. I recommend ordering a size larger--or order two sizes and keep the one that fits better. Otherwise, awesome skirt.

Review 5 for Eileen Fisher Viscose Jersey Pleated Skirt - Regular
The fabric of this skirt was great, with a great drape and I loved the pockets and pleats. However on me it looked a little too short and little-girly. This skirt could be great on someone shorter and/or younger, or just someone who can carry off such a flirty, youthful style with more ease.

Fabulously flattering, versatile, and packable
Date:January 25, 2014
I thought I'd never buy another black skirt - but this piece is really refreshing my wardrobe. I am older and full figured, so pleats don't often work. The wide stretch waste band and drape of this skirt are very flattering. Wear with leggings - so cute! I'll be able to change this up for every season - and great packable fabric for travel.
