CE by Cristina Ehrlich Painterly Dot Pleated Skirt
Light As A Feather!
This is a very well-made, pretty and flattering skirt. The reason I didn't give it five stars is because it is very short - almost too short. I'm 5' 7" and it didn't quite cover my knees; and because it is really difficult to know what size to buy. With a set-in waist and pleats that are sewn-down and with lining underneath there is no 'give' to the fabric in that area. You need to size up by one or two sizes if you have the slightest hint of a stomach. I didn't think I had much of a stomach and according to the waist measurements, as well as the measurements for 8" down from the waist, I should have been able to wear size 8 or 10, but I ended up needing size 12! I'll also have to take it to a seamstress to have the waist taken in (but I frequently have to do that). I agree with a previous reviewer that this skirt would work best for young, slender girls, especially petites.
I just received my skirt and I love it! It fits true to size and the colors are gorgeous - I got the multi color one. You can wear so many different color tops with it! I love the length and the femininity of it. Wore it to work today and just feel very pretty in it. Highly recommended!
Very pretty skirt!
I haven't worn a pleated skirt in years but decided to try this and glad I did. So lightweight and pretty even though it's lined. In this summer's sea of color this is a lovely neutral. Will go well into fall, especially those warmer days. Nice skirt.
Three cheers for Cristina ! (and me)
This is my first purchase of Cristina E.'s designs and I LOVE IT !!! Everything about it is high end: the finished waist- the fabric buttons - the lining. I can't believe it hasn't sold out especially at this price. I recv'd the neutral combo in size 0 and it fits perfectly.
The fabric is so light weight, with a lining, the pleats fall so gracefully, the length is just at my knees -- so feminine, soft, wearable anytime/anywhere. I've worn it with a gold, black, and dark red top. Looks fabulous ! Plus, I can wear this neutral combo in the fall. If you are shying away from this skirt because of the pleats - RECONSIDER !!! The material is so soft - doesn't add bulk. Yes, I'm small, but I can't imagine this not looking great on just about everyone.
Best fitting pleated skirt ever. Beautifully made.
2 STARS ONLY
I gave this product 2 stars because of the fit. The skirt is beautiful, love the feel, but the sizing is off. Ordered in my usual QVC size and could not get it to button. It is going back, although I may order a size larger.
QVC take note and check out this stuff before you air. It would save a lot of time, troulbe, and expense if we were just told to size up!
Beautiful Skirt for the Young and Slim
I loved this skirt. It was beautifully made; however, it did not conform to QVC's general sizing standards. I usually wear a medium (10-12) and sometimes, if the waistband is elastic I can wear a small. I purchased this in a 12 and I could not come close to buttoning it. I usually wear a department store 10 or 12 with no problem. Had to return it. If you are a baby boomer like me, you will need to size up one or two sizes.
OH THE FIT!!!
This skirt is so flattering, the fit is so perfect. I put it on and felt like a queen. This makes you want to wear it, I didn't want to take it off. This might sound silly but ladeies trust me just buy it and try it on. It is SOOOOOOO worth the price. i'M GOING TO BUY THE OTHER COLOR.
