The construction seems very poor to me. It's made with very thin fabric and not at all as thick as other corduroy material I've seen. I really wanted to love this skirt upon arrival, but when I pulled it out of the box I knew the sizing would be off. Generally, I wear a size 4 because I'm 20, 5'9" and 127 lbs. However, this size was super mega small on me, tummy hugging and everything. The red is also very dull like in the picture. I think I'm going to try a larger size. This skirt had so much potential.
