about our wool
I love the Francis skirts and have three …. black, pacific, and plum. I wear them as neutrals with other colors or monochromatic with a matching colored Wool& top. I often have long days and they carry me through in comfort and style.
In a moment of the cold Colorado winter I noticed this skirt on the warehouse clearance so I thought I would give it a go. Well, who knew it would become one of the most used items in my closet?
It’s beautiful, versatile, and warm. And it provides an elevated look to many of my dresses and skirts!
The waistband does run a bit small so I recommend either sizing up or looking closely at the garment measurements before ordering.
This is simply a lovely skirt. I honestly ordered it because it was on sale and we are traveling someplace hot and visiting some places women need to have clothing covering their knees - so wanted a wool option for light weight packing and heat. The flap is attached so it will not blow open. It flows and hangs beautifully. I put the skirt on over a pair of wool leggings and under a long sleeved fleece turtleneck tunic I was wearing (winter here) and it isas attractive that way as it will with a nice blouse or simple t-shirt. I wear XS in all the Wool & and find the fit just right but do have a small waist so if you are on the fence, order up. I am so glad I gave it a try - might just have to pick up another before 8 Feb when sale ends! Oh, the Pacific color is so beautiful I just have to have a dress in that color too!
I took my measurements and trusted the size guide, and still sizing is off--the skirt is too large in the waist. This skirt is eligible for a return (with a $6 fee), but the too-large pair of underwear I additionally ordered is not. Most customers do not seem to have the same experience, but figure it may be worth flagging for others with relatively small waists and full hips/thighs.
Thank you for your review, we're sorry to hear that Small wasn't a good fit for you. Exchanges are free if you'd like to try out the XS to see if that fits better for you in the waist. Feel free to reach out to our team at email@example.com if you'd like any help with sizing with this or any future items!
I bought the Francis jersey skirt in Marine. The Marine is a beautiful blue green color -would go with many items in my wardrobe! Like my Wool& dresses, this skirt is super comfortable. The fabric is soft and smooth with a wonderful drape. The wrap front is a nice touch. I really wanted to love this skirt. But I'm sending it back. I'm pretty tall (5'9"), but this skirt is SO frumpy on me. Tried with a fitted top, tried tucking in the front of my sweater. Better but still frumpy-dumpy. Maybe if I wore it with heels? But I don't wear heels. Just the wrong style for me. Will stick with the Rita ponte pencil skirt, which is very flattering!
