Rated 1 out of 5 by moochie d Third Try
I have several of Mr. Simonton's skirts and they are normally great, but this one not so much. It looks terrible on me. I have kept 9 of his skirts that I have purchased in the past and I wear them constantly. This is my third try at a review on this skirt because the first two were not posted. "Fins" come to mind when I look at the chiffon ruffles. I really want to save you from returns and unnecessary shipping charges. I thought I carefully scrutinized this skirt but the reviewers made me forget my concerns about the ruffles. I should have gone with my initial instincts. Fabric sticking out from my "behind" is not attractive to me. I considered just trying to remove the ruffles but the skirt fabric has a slightly "rough" texture which I did not like. So buyer beware.

I bought this skirt in navy to go with a couple of Linea tops (the navy scoopneck floral printed top and the crinkle georgette shirt with shell). Although it works well with both of those tops, especially the shirt/shell set, I still feel like I don't have the ideal top for it. One reviewer said that she could not find anything to wear with this skirt and I agree that it's difficult: You need something light and flowing - or maybe something lacey like the G.I.L.I. allover lace top which I don't have, yet - and it must cover the elastic waistline but it can't be too long. I think that George might have designed the extended shoulder top with ruffle front (A232734) for this skirt BUT I don't wear sleeveless tops and, even if I did, that top is sold out in my size. Anyway, this skirt is so pretty that I'm keeping it.
Rated 5 out of 5 Love it
I kept looking at this skirt, putting it in my cart, then never finishing the purchase. Finally, I just had to have it. I am so glad I did. The grey is a lovely soft grey that will go with any top. It fits beautifully, and the chiffon ruffles are just so feminine. Don't hesitate - if you are thinking of getting this skirt, do it. You won't regret it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by golden-autumn This skirt is a bit of heaven
The quality of this skirt was a breath of fresh air compared to the Susan Graver and Denim and Company I have bought recently. It flows, but fits. I got so many compliments on it I just bought the other color today. It is gorgeous. Fit Perfect, quality refreshing.

The color, as described, isn't "pewter", but a soft taupe. Nevertheless, it's a pretty color. The fit is true to size, and I like the thin elastic waistband. The design is very clever and unique, but MORE would have been better. I will initially be wearing this to a Great Gatsby theme affair. This skirt would have been a knockout if it was constructed with more vertical ruffling. I'm going to wear it with a top of similar material, sleeveless, with a softly draped cowl neckline.

LOVE THIS STYLE, BUT WOULD LOVE IT EVEN MORE AT 23" LENGTH WITH GODETS WITH VERTIICAL RUFFLE TREATMENT ON EACH SEAM.. BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS FOR YEARS.. SO FLATTERING WHEN DANCING
Rated 5 out of 5 Lovely skirt, but............
I ordered this skirt in black and XS. The fit was great and the skirt lovely. But, I could not find anything to wear with it. I purchased the A224095 in XXS in black also however, this top was too overwhelming so I returned them both. I am 5'71/2 and this skirt was just perfect in length and everywhere. I really hated to return it but, just could not figure out anything to go with it. George, you are adorable and I love your clothes, sorry I had to return. Perhaps you can make something that goes great with this skirt and I will buy again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kattheisen A Lovely Skirt
I am really happy with this beautiful skirt. I am 5'2" and size 12-14 in pants. I purchased the skirt in large and am very happy with the fit. It hangs nicely in the back, is not tight at all at the hips, and the length is long on me- past the widest part of my calfs- which is what I wanted. The cascading ruffles are beautiful and feminine. The classy shade of gray and the great design make this skirt look expensive and chic. I purchased it to go with the top shown below and the combination is perfect because the colors coordinate without looking too much like a matched set. The cascading waves begin right where the top ends and this creates a very nice line. The eye is drawn away form my hips and this makes my outfit slimming. I feel fashionable, unique, and comfortable in my outfit. The material is a knit with some stretch but does not look cheap. Another reviewer said that she wishes the skirt was lined, but I like it unlined as it feels light and easy to me, and the fabric is not too thin- no bumps or ripples show through! The color of the gray is truly classy too- a would call it mink- it is a very warm gray. The top below is light and flows around my back which compliments the flow if the ruffles, which don;t really look like ruffles- more like gentle waves. I purchased both pieces for a fancy wedding and am excited to show it off!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Frankuta Love this skirt
It is as nice as I expected. Bought for a special occasion. Wish it came in petite because I will have to roll it at the waist. Hope more designers listen to us who are vertically challenged. Just saying.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BarbieR Beautiful, unique skirt
I love the fit and feel of this skirt. Also, it is very feminine in appearance, especially the flow/movement of the vertical chiffon ruffles.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Leeni Feminine & Dressy
This skirt is tres pretty! Truly pretty and feminine enough to wear to a dressy event paired with a special top. If you need a "special occasion" garment, I think this one fits the bill.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TXgranny Well made.
Great length and tapering. I purchased pewter which is darker than GS wheat, but lighter than his recent taupe. No grey tone, which I was hoping for. The pewter color blends with either his above mentioned colors. The cascades do lead the eye away from the tummy area. I don't know if I will like this style.
Skirt goes with the print cardigan in neutrals shown below and goes with, though lighter, with the pleated cardigan in taupe.
