Rated 4 out of 5 by PattiL I didn't like it
I've loved everything I've bought from Linea, but not this one. I didn't like the way the flap in the front and back didn't hang evenly. But I loved the material and the fit. Sorry, but back it goes.

I don't care for the material. I think it's cheap looking. I'm keeping it because it's so expensive to send it back, but I know I'll just wear it to knock around in.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Loved it, except for waist band
I ordered this skort in black and it fit me perfectly in a Small and looked really great. I thought it might be a tad too short for someone my age (69), but it was very flattering. The one drawback for me was the waistband which looked fine, but felt scratchy and I knew that would bother me, especially when the weather heats up - I had planned to wear the skort this summer in place of my usual bermudas, with top not tucked in. I am one of those people who are very sensitive to fabric - have to cut tags out, etc., so the waistband may not be a problem for others. I really hated to send the skort back because it was so cute. Gave it 5 stars because of the great fit and cuteness factor.

I really thought that I would love this skort. Mr. Dell'Olio is my favorite designer at the Q and I have always found his designs to be impeccable!
Sadly, the fit on this skort was just not flattering. I am 5'4" and ordered my usual size. The pockets gapped open and I didn't care for the look of the waistband. It looked more casual than I had anticipated.
The colors were pretty and the material was very nice.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilyn 1 Love this skort
I never buy skorts, but I trust Louis so I gave it a try. The reason I love it IS because it has a back flap, and it doesn't look like shorts. I guess the last reviewer never heard of a double wrap skirt! Ridiculous it is not. I got my usual Linea xs, and I love the fit. I love that it has pockets that add no bulk at all, and I love the length. I think the silky fabric is terrific. You can wear it both casual or more dressed up. I got the black and brown, and plan to wear them with opaque tights for fall and with sandals in the summer. I really don't understand anyone who is 5' and under complaining since these are not petite clothes, and anything they buy is a gamble. I am totally happy with this purchase and highly recommend it. The only thing I would advise is to see if the length works for you. It is short, but I think if it were longer it would look very frumpy. I would definitely buy another Linea skort.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Curly~Q Couldn't Send It Back Fast Enough!
Ordered two shorts in black and brown in size medium. I am 5'4", between a size 8 and 10. I guess I didn't pay close enough attention to the details. The back flap looks ridiculous. If there was just one flap in front I think it would have been better. Also the elastic waist looked bulky and I did not feel this item should have pockets. Would have made for a leaner silhouette. Just my opinion as others have expressed their satisfaction with the skirt. To each his own I guess!
Rated 3 out of 5 by rac71 Not for those under 5' :(
I am so disappointed. Louis recommended I try this as a short skirt when I wrote to him on his blog. Unfortunately it does not flatter my 4'11" body and the hemline hits at the thickest part of my leg, right below my knee where my calf muscles curve outward. Thinking skirts in general aren't an option. I did like that there was a panel on the back, so it wasn't obviously shorts.

I can't say enough positive about this skort. The fit is right on (size small), the fabric lovely and it hangs so well, the waist is comfortable and no roll, and the front panel nicely flat. I'm 5'7" and it hits barely an inch above my knee so it's not too short. I've worn it to work with a long tunic top, shopping and to supper; it's very versatile. I got black and am back for the brown, and agree that this will be perfect with tights and boots for fall. Love!
