Delightful Flounce...but Could Be Fuller
I ordered this in the 35" length, in navy, and I didn't notice the length discrepancy until I ordered the Civil War Twill Skirt and had its hem adjusted to 35," but 35" doesn't seem to mean "35 inches" in this skirt's case (that, or the cotton has since shrunk). It naturally is 33" when pulled straight, though I can stretch it for all it's might and get it to the 35" mark...but it won't hang there.
That aside, though, this skirt is very pleasant. The flounce at the bottom creates a lovely flaring movement when you walk, and the skirt is full enough, in it's own way. It just doesn't come across as full in a gathered, Victorian sort of way, not like the Twill Civil War Skirt does.
But if your goal is flounce and fullness along the hem rather than fullness around a gathered waist, this is the skirt for you. The cotton seems stain resistant and is definitely light, but not transparent or fragile, and the color is rich and beautiful.
