Nice, Functional

I really like this skort as it is cute and functional, but I have to agree with another reviewer that it isn't as wrinkle-resitant as claimed. It is a nice length - a couple of inches above the knee on a 5'4" person. It seems to run a little larger than most Patagonia bottoms, as I went down one size from the capris I have.

Nicely done, with follow-up note

Have the sesame in a 6, and it sits about 2 fingers below my bellybutton. If you didn't know there were shorts underneath, you really wouldn't suspect it. Only regret is not getting the brown version for hiking and other outdoor pursuits, it's really very cute.

Follow-up: I did get a black one and just wore it for 9 days straight hiking. It stood up to everything I threw at it and still looked awesome. Totally five stars.

I love this skirt. I wear this skirt biking around town, on short hikes, and even to a nice dinner. The fabric is super soft and repels liquid really well. However, the "soft" finish does make it collect lint or dirt a bit (if you're sitting on the ground). The only complaint I have is that the shorts underneath will give me a wedgie if I'm walking around a lot!

Addition to my first review for the Duway skirt

So I finally got around to getting the Duway altered b/c it fit too losely around the waist (I got a size 8 and I usually wear size 8 in skirts). The taylor said that it was cut sorta straight, instead of forming an A-shape. After being tightened 2 inches at the waist it finally fit like it was supposed to.
Might have been a manufacturing error in mine...who knows.
If this is a regular case with this item then it benefits those with little waist to hip ratio.
For those of you with a bigger waist to hip ratio, like me, get on the good side of friends/relatives that know how to use a sewing machine ;-)
Still a nice star removed for the fitting issues.

super cute

Love, love this skirt. Doesn't wrinkle for me. Great on short, fun rides. Length is perfect for me, 5' 2.5". Blue color is beautiful. Wish I'd gotten a few more.

Really like this skort. I am more of a pear shaped kinda gal and this skort fits pretty well. I am normally a size 8-10 and got this skort in an 8. It fits a lil loose around the waist, so I might get it altered. Other than that, the fabric feels really nice. The color is nice and subtle (I got the MOREL; in the picture it looked flashier than it really is). The short inside could be a lil tighter and maybe stretchy. The zippers are a good addition which makes biking a lot easier. I think this garment will be a great allrounder for work, casual and travel.

Liked the fabric, but not the fit

I tried this skort in a size 4 and a size 2, and sent 'em both back to Patagonia. The 4 falls off me; the 2 is too tight across the butt & too big in the waist. The rise is just... odd... for a skirt. Maybe 20-year-old women like skirts that are so low-rise they barely go above the hips -- that seemed to be the style everywhere this summer -- but I'm not fond of that look in general, and definitely not on me (age 47). Also, these low-rise skirts and skorts look terrible on someone with a long torso, like me. Seriously not flattering. I don't like skirts or pants that are "high-rise," but I need more coverage than these low-rise clothes provide. Harumph. The search for skirts or skorts continues.

Wrinkle Resistant?

I love this skirt, but I have to laugh at it's claim to wrinkle resistance. It's not resistant to wrinkles at all. A short trip, packed well in a carry on resulted in wrinkles that had to be ironed out. It wrinkles when I sit down for any period of time, too. It's a nice skirt and looks great, but it is NOT wrinkle resistant by ANY stretch of the imagination.
