Rated 2 out of 5 by claire071980 Several issues
I understood from other reviews that this was short and also not particularly generous for a plus fit so I ordered size 9-10 even though the rest of my child's uniform is 8-9. I hoped that by going up a size the waist and length would be ok. The length is fine, although I should point out that my daughter is actually only 6, but she's the height of an average 8 year old. So two sizes up here's an acceptable length. The waist is JUST big enough when fully let out. Yes it is adjustable, but only in that it can be made smaller. There's no elasticated section other than to draw it in and button it smaller. I was expecting some give at the waist.
It has a side zip with no button or hook at the top so my daughter cannot pull the zip all the way up herself. I'm going to install a hook and loop at the top myself to hold it in place while being zipped up. It does look lovely on so I decided to keep it.
But the worst thing about this skirt, the reason I almost returned it is the smell. I presume it's the "storm wear" or the dye. It smells like a fishy or cats urine smell. It's not terribly strong but it's there even after three washes. Thankfully my daughter doesn't seam to have noticed but I can smell it as soon as I open the wardrobe and when I get anywhere near it during laundry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Newforrest1 Too short
Unfortunately we have had to return both skirts as they are ridiculously short for a school uniform. My daughter tried these on at home but as she bent over to pick something up you could see everything she was wearing underneath. They would not conform to the school dress policy. Disappointed, as the would have been great if they were longer.

Bought a larger size as other reviewers said how short the skirt was and it was ok in length, Just. Nice quality as always and daughter loves the style.

Skirt was bought for my 11 year old daughter.Sent it back as it was far too short.My daughter is average height and it barely covered her bottom.Far too short for a young girls school skirt.Think Marks and Spencer can do better!

It is advertised as a plus, but it really is on the large side.
