Laura Byrnes California High Waisted Seamed Pencil Skirt in Black Ponte

Availability: In stock

$98.00
The High Waisted Pencil Skirt in Ponte de Roma mirrors the original Pencil Skirt from Laura Byrnes, but in a super stretchy and comfortable knit. 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. Finished off with a back zip.

Item Size:XL
 
I have finally found a true high waisted wiggle skirt, to showcase my curves. This skirt is so comfy in the stretch ponty, and hugs my hourglass figure in all the right places. It is so flattering I felt like a bombshell the minute I put it on. The stretch allows for ease of movement which is great too. I would like to purchase another as backup, as I can't live without my new favourite skirt!!!

I should start that saying I'm a die-hard PUG fan and regular customer. I have always said that the reason the price point is higher for PUG is because the quality of the garments are always top notch. They make things like they used to years ago that you don't see any longer. Great fabrics, special touches and design and always well made. Never had an issue with anything I bought. I bought this skirt for a very important presentation I was giving and needed a sleek, below the knee, classy pencil skirt. At $92, it was a "splurge", but I trusted the prior experiences with PUG. I saw one review that described the garment as having weird extra fabric "blouse out" around the hip area, but because it was only one review, ignored it. Turns out, it was GROSSLY disformed at the hips. The fabric puckers out significantly at a very odd area. I tried hiking the skirt all the way up to my breasts, then lowering it, no matter what, those puckers on either side of the hip did not go away. It was not even remotely acceptable. Also, the fabric was pretty flimsy, although they are candid about it being a stretch fabric. For the price, I feel there should be a liner and a bit more firmness to it... but the puckers on either side of the hips would not matter if I went down a size or two - it's the less-than-ok way they made the skirt. Just awful. PUG I love you, but I'm sending this back. I was not able to wear it for my event (and paid extra shipping) and there is no way I will exchange it for the same item in a different size. This skirt was a "fail" in manufacturing for PUG, in my opinion. I'm still a fan of the company, just so disappointed that they let something like this pass for their standard and then charge almost $100 for it.

Weirdest fitting skirt in recent memory. Bagged at the hips when I walked. Nice looking skirt on the rack but terrible on. Maybe it's because I am petite but I am well proportioned for a petite woman. A real disappointment

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!

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

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.

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).

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.

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"

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.
