5My favourite skirt

I love this skirt so much. I am 5'2" so it is quite long on me, but as it's gathered and puffy I don't feel I need to hem it or always wear heels. It sits beautifully on my waist, and is made from a gloriously sturdy thick black stretch cotton. And the POCKETS!! So deep and roomy! I want it in every colour, but black is great for its versatility.

    5Perfect Skirt Is Perfect

    I prefer gathered skirts to full or part circle skirts, and the Jasmine skirt is basically my perfect skirt. Not too long and not too short, so that tall and petite ladies alike can wear it. Gathered for great volume, it takes a medium fullness petticoat beautifully.

    This black version, unlike the patterned
    Jasmines that have come before it, has POCKETS! few things make my heart happier than skirts or dresses with pockets.

    The fabric doesn't have much stretch but I would say the skirt sizes half a size larger.

    Basically, I cannot wait for more Jasmines to be released in future, because I feel a collection coming on!

      4Lovely - but runs big

      Lovely skirt, all in all, but I struggled with the sizing. Pleasant sheen to the fabric, generous pockets; a very good wardrobe staple as long as you take the stretch into account.

      I must admit that receiving this skirt was a big (pun intended) disappointment to me - which is very rare for me with Collectif. So, warning, rant ahead:

      The disappointment is entirely due to the sizing. I normally wear a size 14 in Collectif (basically everything except coats and some knitwear - usually need a bigger size there). I have the Jasmine skirt in the Paint Pot print in a size 14 - the fabric has some give, but the waistband does not. I can barely close the zipper on that one, and it is much too tight to be comfortable and/or flattering. So I checked that listing, which said "fit is true to size", and figured that the Jasmine fits "smaller" due to no-stretch-waistbands. I saw that this plain black Jasmine also "fits true to size", so I ordered a size 16 to be sure. When the skirt arrived it was rather big, and also stretchy in the waistband. The result is that I would need to take out at least 10 inches for the waistband to sit correctly at my waist!

      If I just needed to take some fabric out in the back or so, I would - but that would displace the pockets weirdly. I bought the skirt in a sale, and I live in Sweden, so not worth it for me to send the skirt back for another size. I think I'll wait for the next sale and hope for a good discount then. Only, now I'm unsure whether even a size 14 will be snug enough... I do wish that there would have been more sizing information, especially as this Jasmine obviously differs from other Jasmines. Such a good skirt otherwise though. Boo hoo.
