Side-Button Skirt

Side-Button Skirt is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favorite skirt This is the perfect summer dress. The color is amazing....very pretty/bright yellow. The buttons on the sides, make the skirt very unique. Must have for spring and summer. Looks really cute with a blue and white stripped blouse or chambray blouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes. Beautiful color and perfect length. I found it to be true to size, made up of a very soft, swingy cotton. Lined only partially but I can see where if it was fully lined, it might be too bulky and less flowy. The buttons on each side, aside from the amazing color, is what sets the skirt apart. As a bonus, they make it super easy to get in and out of, as well. Hope Madewell continues to incorporate these type of staple pieces more regularly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine. I have a 31" inseam and it hit my calf about where it does on the model. My waist is 27.5 inches. Sizes 2 and 4 were the same length. Both fit but the 4 drapes better. Cons - Added a little bulk to hips - nothing crazy. I think it is an optical effect of the buttons' rather than the skirt's construction. - Only partially lined. Pros - color - nice breezy but weighty (if that makes sense) fabric - neatly sewn seams

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So frumpy This skirt is a lovely design and color, but the weird half lining adds so much bulk around the midsection and rear end. Really frumpy overall look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I really wanted this skirt when I saw it online. I rushed to my local store to try it out and was ultimately very disappointed. The color is wonderful in person. Imagine a vibrant mustard that has faded from years of wear (in a good way). The shape of the skirt was ultimately it's downfall for me. It felt frumpy. Like something my kindergarten teacher might have worn in 1991. I can't quite put my finger on the problem, but I think the skirt is either made up of too much fabric or not enough. It was kind of shapeless. (Same problem in the chambray version.) The waist is true to size and the buttons were lovely. The only reason I'm giving it 4 starts for quality is because it's only lined to above the knee, which made it feel kind of cheap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dowdy Can't say I loved this, though I tried so desperately to, as I was in the market for a button down yellow/mustard/brown skirt. I'm usually an XS/S in Madewell and had to size up to a 10 for this to fit. As a result the skirt was extremely long, almost ankle length on my 5'2 frame. Not flattering and don't understand the fuss. Glad I tried it on in store so I could futz with the different sizes. Something is off with this skirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute skirt I love the buttons down both sides and the color. The skirt fits true to size and hits me at mid calf (I'm 5'4") There is a double layer of material from the waistband to about mid thigh under the front of the skirt which means you don't need a slip to keep the skirt from being see-through. The material is a nice soft cotton which will definitely wrinkle, but its comfortable and cute and I'm very happy with it.
