Girls' Wool Mix Inverted Pleat School Skirt, Grey
Great school skirt
I ordered various sizes of this skirt for my daughter who is 12, tall and slim. The skirt comes up far too big and ended up with an Age 9 long fitting. To date this is by far the best skirt I have been able to find with an inverted pleat. I need to order more but see that the colour charcoal is no longer available, Please get this colour back in store.

Nice quality, however a little itchy and poorly sized!
Colour representation on the web page is excellent
Nice quality however my daughter feels its a little itchy; she will put up with that as the styling is so much better than the school outfitters alternative.
The sizing is huge. I had to buy an age 8 for a child that normally wears an age 10-11. It is sized fairly proportionately so this won't be a problem. Without the heads up from a fellow Mum I would never have ordered that size.

Nice Quality but size too big and inconsistent
Bought a regular and long length in age 7 for my average sized 7.5 year old - both are too big, but especially the long length one which is about 1.5 inches bigger on the waist than the regular length one. She does have other John Lewis items in age 7 which fit fine with a sensible amount of growing room.
Hoped to avoid a trip to the store but looks like I may need to take her along to get the right fit - or order a variety of sizes for delivery to see which is right!

A good quality skirt and cheaper than school outfitters. Hips were too wide so have had to run in the side seams.Washes well.

I had to buy it, as part of school uniform - but it is scratchy and the zip broke within three days. Would send it back, but because it's the only skirt she's got, replaced with poppers. Don't buy it.

It took 3 purchases until we got the right size. Even went instore, tried a similar skirt and when I ordered the equivalent - the size was incorrect too. Measurements given online for ages are very vague. ie what is the waiste for size 12, 13, tec
Had to return and repurchase.
Also disappointing quality - hem came out after day 2!

Wrong skirt was advised
I have been informed by Burnham Grammar School that this is not the correct style of skirt for the school. I have had to purchase the correct skirt from another uniform supplier. I will need to return the skirt i was given from your store and get a refund. Thanks
