George Simonton Milky Knit Peekaboo Sleeve Top & Petite Maxi Skirt Set
I would LOVE it if George could bring this back (in more petite quantities) in purple, ruby or the blue. I missed out on my size in PXXS and PXS. Please QVC bring this back out of retirement.
I ordered this in XL-Large, because the Large was sold out in the color I wanted. It fits perfectly and can be dressed up or down, which I will do both for the wedding and reception. And the top is a little big but will make a tuck in the shoulder to tighten a bit more. This is so classy ladies I would not hesitate to buy it at this price. Way to go George!! Love it. I would size down.
I am a curvy 14-16 (I still have a waist, for now) and the L fits perfectly. After reading the reviews and because of availability I ordered it in the petite because of my short legs. (5'6" with a 29" inseam) Keep in mind girls, this IS a maxi skirt...I like that it is a little shorter in the front. I like the sleeves because I am smaller on top and no shoulder seams to advertise the fact that the top may be a little roomy on me. The split sleeves lay nicely without falling open unless you move right. The ruching at the tummy hides the bulge nicely. I came back for 2 more colors...I will wear them to weddings and work, and also split up the set for more casual wear. Way to go, George!
I bought this in a petite I'm only 5'3 and it is perfect.. I can not wait to wear this to church..
Beautiful Outfit, but the length...
This is a beautiful outfit, but it definitely is not made for petite (short) people . I purchased it for my 5-feet-tall daughter to wear to her baby shower. The skirt was very long. The back of it hit the floor and dragged. She pulled the skirt up, wore it as a dress and added a shrug. Gave it 4 stars because of the terribly long length. Mr. Simonton, please check your petites on short people.
I finally bought this outfit after seeing it several times. The large was sold out in the black regular so I ordered the petite. It is perfect. I am ordering the royal blue one too, since it is on clearance it will never be back, so I want to get it while the getting is good. I am VERY pleased with the fit and the way I look in it. It is coming with me on my trans-atlantic cruise this November. It will be great for formal night. Thanks George!!!
Loved the concept of this Maxi Skirt Set...the top fit well and the Peekaboo Sleeve gave the top an updated flair but the skirt didn't hang right...I'm 5'4" so I ordered the petite length...I had to roll the waist line up two rolls to get the skirt off the floor in the back. The waist would not stay rolled, so I was constantly re-rolling the waistline. I'm a little bottom heavy and the material wanted to show off all my imperfections. I love George Simonton's clothing but this one needs to be rethought a bit. I ordered two sets but I'm returning both sets, sorry George. The fashion designers need to think about their plus size customers more...everything doesn't fit or look the same on a plus size person as it does on a small or average size person.
Skirt very long
I am 5 ft. 1/2 in. tall so I ordered this outfit in the petite. The material was nice and the fit of the top was nice but the skirt was extremely long. It looked like it had a train dragging on the ground behind me. After rolling the waist band up two complete rolls I was finally able to see my feet in front while the back was still touching the ground. This was still longer then what the picture on the computer or models on TV made it look. If i could be certain that it had been mis-marked I would send it back and request a replacement but since I can't, I am just sending it back.
I'm 5'4" and normally wear reg lrg but got the petite lrg and it is perfect!!!! Got the royal blue, first time wearing to work and got huge compliments. Love this outfit, can't say enough.
Back It Goes
This is my first George Simonton purchase and I wasn't impressed. I ordered this in Stone and Black (waitlist which I have cancelled). I received the Stone yesterday and was so disappointed when I tried it on. It just hung on me. The material across the stomach just hung there. Nothing like how it looked on Mary Beth when she showed it. I could have gone down a size or two but I think it might have been too tight in the bust then. The skirt is not flattering (on me) and just hung so it showed everything as someone else pointed out. I really was hoping this worked so I could wear the pieces together and separately but back it goes.
perfect for wedding
Wore to sons wedding, got many complements, some thought it was a dress. Perfect fit and very confiortable & lightweight, too. So glad bought this, as can wear for other occasions, as well, is not a one time to wear outfit.
I purchased this because I go on a cruise every year. It is easy to pack and very easy to wear. You can dress it up or down.
