The seaming reflects the art deco feel of an older era with a modernized take on the traditional high waisted pencil skirt. It features two double kick pleats in the back and a curved high front panel for a flattering and sophisticated look. This is the perfect skirt to transition from work to evening and sure to become a closet staple. If you're between sizes, you'll be able to order down on this one due to its stretch and comfort.

I wish I could zip this up so I could give it a proper review.
I usually order a large in PUG, my dresses are all size large and fit perfectly.
I ordered a large in this skirt and I can't even get the zipper up past my hip. It looks like a good quality, gorgeous skirt, though! (Posted on 1/2/2015)

I bought this skirt along with the leopard print high waisted pencil skirt, both in a size 2x. The leopard print skirt fits perfectly, but this one is just too big, maybe by as much as an inch or two.
The fabric is nice and staff got back to me quickly with instructions for sending it back to be exchanged, however a free returns system would give a much better user experience from an online clothing retailer (Posted on 12/23/2014)

I bought this as a gift to my wife. It was easy to order and they shipped it quickly. When she tried it on, it looked amazing on her. But when I looked close, the side seam was already ripped. I'm not sure if it was poor quality or just a defect from the company. (Posted on 12/12/2014)

Third purchase and love it! I do think I should've went down a size, but it still looks very nice. My waist is 29 and my hips are 42 and I purchased a large. This size would be great for work, not tight, but I was wanting it to be a bit more sexy;o) It's a nice thick jersey knit and nice seams. Love the double kick pleats. I would purchase this again in other colors(smaller size though). (Posted on 11/23/2014)

I love this skirt as a work staple. It is perfect as it does not crease and is a lovely length. Most amazing fabric ever!!! I am 155cm tall and it hits just below the knee. Small problem when wearing it is that after sitting in it when you stand you have to give it tug down so the zip at the back doesn't look rippled. But after that it sits fine. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

Oh my heavens I do not have have enough good things to say about this skirt!! It is the sexiest skirt ever. It hugs my curves and supports the wobbly bits. I wear it at both work and out socially. The stretch in the fabric makes it so comfortable. Love love love it!
I bought a large waist is 31" hips 43" (Posted on 9/16/2014)

My measurements are 46-32-49. My waist is quite small compared to the rest of me, so I bought this knowing that many items have to be taken in at the waist for me. My bust is a 34K UK, so that can be challenging to fit. I'm writing this for the ladies who may have my specific challenges, and proper fit on my figure off the rack almost never happens.

Due to the stretch, I bought an XL. I often buy 2XL from PUG, but took the advice to size down. I missed out on the first round of this and had to wait almost a year for the restock.

Oh my word, this skirt is amazing. It was worth the wait! The fabric is very comfortable, yet still chic! The high waist elongates my figure so beautifully! The fit is perfect without alteration. The zipper can bunch a little if you're not wearing shapewear under it. I wore it to a show and was ultra comfortable for hours. I found it washes very well in cold water with a line or flat dry. I use my lingerie soap for it.

If this were available in navy and chocolate, I'd buy it in those colors as well. (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I don't usually write reviews of products I order, but I read those of others. I just received my skirt and was so blown away at the quality and comfort that I absolutely HAD to add my voice to the praises already being sung for this garment.

The quality is fantastic (made in the USA - even better!)! Heavy enough material to not cling, but certainly not winter-only wear. As others have said, sexy enough to turn heads (love the dual kick pleat in the back - much nicer than one split up the center back, which always makes me worry whether it's ripped and showing too much), but sophisticated enough for office. If you're shorter than 5'4" (which I am) it might be a bit long. Hits me below the knee, but to me that's the retro style of this skirt.

The best part, besides skimming every curve and making me actually feel like you can really see my "hourglass" - it's super, super comfortable. Give to the fabric does not bind at the tummy when you sit or make you feel corseted. I dropped something on the floor and was amazed that I could just bend over at the waist and pick it up - without feeling like I was going to bust all the seeming out! Not many pencil skirts can claim that!

Bottom line - worth every penny. Feel it will last for a good long time. Worth the wardrobe investment. (Posted on 7/24/2014)

I'm a size 14 and 5'6" and this skirt is too long. The fabric has a nice stretch to it but I wouldn't see this as something I'd dress up in since it's more of like a jersey type fabric. It is comfy. I bought a 2x and would probably like it better a size smaller. (Posted on 7/6/2014)

This skirt is comfortable and so flattering! Easy to wear and provides a little stretch so you can go with your waist measurement as opposed to your hip measurement. I have found it hard to get a skirt that will fit my waist and still fit around my hips (booty)...then I found THIS! (Posted on 6/13/2014)

First and foremost I absolutely love the material this dress is made of. Wonderful.

I love the fit...it's as if it were tailored specifically for me.

I took a chance I bought this in x-small and I'm seriously glad I did! It does give to your curves and the length is perfect for my 5'2 frame! (Posted on 5/1/2014)

I love the fabric of the Joanie so I was excited to order this skirt. I am a large in Joanie, so went with a large in this, but the fit was MUCH smaller. I am a 36", 30", 44" and I found the L way too tight. Also, the zipper buckled up the back and would not lay flat. Unfortunately, because I live in Canada, they will not do an exchange, so I'm going to try and sell the skirt locally to someone smaller as it is not worth paying to ship it back and lose out on my previous shipping charges and duty paid. I really love the fabric, the seaming, and the kick pleats in the back. Perhaps if I had tried an XL it would have been better, but I assumed it would fit the same as the Joanie. Too bad! :( (Posted on 3/14/2014)

The material that this skirt is made out of is wonderful. It holds you in and doesn't wrinkle much after sitting for long periods. I also never had to make any adjustments (like pulling it down or pulling the waist up). It stays in place. The zipper on the back is very sexy and functional. I'm usually an XL in PUG clothing, but based on the advice in the reviews, I ordered a size down and it fits perfectly - showcasing my smaller waist and holding in those hips! (Posted on 2/28/2014)

This was my first purchase from PUG and I do not regret it. It hugs my curves wonderfully and I can't take my eyes off myself. The only thing that bugs me is the zipper. It's not very "grip friendly" so it takes a little while to pull it all the way up (unless you have an extra pair of hands to help you out). And once the zipper is up, it does not stay so smoothe like on the girl in the picture. It kind of wrinkles up. It's hard to explain. But other than that it's a perfect skirt. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

If you order this skirt based on the largest dimesions shown, figuring that it will stretch, you are likely to be disappointed. That's what I did, and the skirt looked horrible on me! I should have ordered the size that would have fit without stretching excessively. Trust me; the skirt will still hug your curves if you order the larger size (the one that would fit you based on the smaller numbers listed on the sizing chart). I had no choice but to return the skirt. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I am a rather large girl and always thought I would never be able to wear a pencil skirt, that is, until now! I bought this skirt with high hopes and not only did it meet them, it went above and beyond! I slipped into it, yes a big girl slipped into a skirt, and it hugged my curves just right! My butt looks AMAZING in this skirt and I have had so many compliments on that very feature while wearing this skirt!! One person said, "You are just like BAM!! So sexy!!" hehe I put it on and feel so feminine and sexy! I was moved to tears and left speechless! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

This is the best skirt I have ever owned, hands down. The fabric is comfortable but luxurious. The panels on the sides and pleating at the back give it an extra touch of class and sets it aside from any other black pencil skirt. I love this skirt! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

The fabric makes this very comfortable, and the seaming and shape makes this a feminine but work appropriate item. I'm 27ish-38ish, and got a S, which fits really well. I could have fit in an XS, but it would be too tight for the office. Another great piece! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Laura is a genius for making this skirt, I own the BL skirt as well and this is a replica of that except in a fantastic stretch knit fabric. I adore this skirt, it is sooo comfy and holds in the tummy region exceptionally well! It is worth every penny <3 My waist measurement is 35 and hips 45 and i opted for the XL and it fits perfectly! love love love!! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
