Velveteen Metropolis Snap Skirt

Velveteen Metropolis Snap Skirt is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliments galore I fell in love with this skirt as soon as I saw it on the website. Normally I'm hesitant about buying bottoms online—I'm a curvy size 12 and it's often difficult to imagine what something will look like on my body when my only marker is the thin model on the screen. That said, this skirt is incredibly flattering for my round lower half—and not to mention stylish as all get-out! I've worn it a handful of times and the compliments I've received are plenty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mutli-purpose skirt I love this skirt, it is not only very soft, it is flattering and just the type of skirt for a wardrobe that will allow you to mix and match and make this very multi-functional. Can be worn with tights in the winter, or bare-legged in warmer fall months. In general it's definitely a casual skirt, but there are many ways you could pair this skirt with shirts, blouses and sweaters. I sized up and am happy with that as the waist-band doesn't stretch. My only complaint is that if you sit down and the skirt isn't totally flat behind you (so if it bunches) you will get quite a bit of wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and material Wonderful fabric that has some stretch so it's very comfortable. It also holds up well after the wash. The style is so cute and versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs large, but I'm happy with it! Got so many compliments on this skirt on a recent trip. It does ride up a bit if you're carrying a large purse since it's a bit big. Overall - really cute and glad I purchased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, but it is a little too short. I bought this skirt to wear with my recently purchased Madewell blouse: ruffled black silk with cognac hearts. It is a perfect match. I would have given this a rating of 5, but it is too short for my height (5 ft 6 in), and age (50s). An extra 2 or so inches would solve the problem. I purchased online a pair of leggings that I hope will help give me some modesty with this skirt. I love Madewell fashion, but I wish they would take into consideration that not all fashionistas are size 2 teenyboppers, who mostly don’t buy at their price level, anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PERFECT 70s insp skirt I ordered this skirt in a 4. Absolutely fell in love when it arrived at my house. The color was beautiful and the skirt was just absolutely perfect. My only complaint was I bought it in a size four, which is typically my usual size and it was wayyy too roomy. Like ridiculously huge for a size four. I obviously needed a 2, but of course the 2 in this skirt was sold out. Was so so so so disappointed. Lesson learned I suppose. Going with a 2 in madewell skirts/dresses from here on out. My advice: buy the skirt, size down.
