Rated 5 out of 5áby Sandy50 Great look, great fit
I have been struggling to find a black skirt that can cross over from work to car pooling and playing with kids. This is it! The skirt looks great, fits well. I would recommend this to any busy woman.

From the catalog, the skirt appeared to be ideal to add to my wardrobe. However, after looking at the hem that was so poorly completed, I am totally disappointed in the appearance. It looks like a child finish the detail work. I want to check to see how this can be returned without huge fees for shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 101113 The name of this skirt says it all!
"Indispensable" is a perfect name for this skirt - it is fabulous! The fabric is great, the fit is great - the sizing is true to size and it looks great on. So glad I bought this - it is already a staple in my wardrobe!

Rated 3 out of 5áby mozart1 Side seems poof out
I ordered this skirt and the perfect fit version. Though I do like the weight of the material, the seems stick out on the sides. I will mention that I have real hips (my hips are about 9 inches bigger than my waist), but I didn't fill out this skirt. I think that if I bought a size smaller, the waist would probably be too small.
I do like the drape and the fit of the perfect fit version, and I am keeping it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby bean56 great style, questionable quality
i agree with others who have noted the questionable construction of this skirt. in particular, the 'wobbly' seams. i steam pressed the seams and this was helpful -- tho' it did not entirely correct the problem which is, i believe, related to the quality of fabric and construction.
i also purchased the 'perfect fit' skirt at the same time. while the quality and construction of the perfect fit skirt is much more in keeping with what i have come to expect for llbean, the design (as other have noted on this skirt) really does emphasize the hips.
so, i have returned the perfect fit and kept the indispensable knit skirt. even tho' the indispensable knit is not the quality i expect from llbean, i like the design and fit. others may make a different decision depending on priorities.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Heartlandcare Love, love, love this comfortable skirt.
I love the pocket-almost fits my smart phone-but will keys. Nice length. Comfortable. Will be easy to mix and match with other tops in wardrobe. Just the price is high for the easy going fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5áby ByzCathHomeschoolMom Wear it tons, but...
I bought this about a month ago to replace the short "indispensable knit" skirt I purchased about 10 (more?) years ago and finally wore out. I've used it a lot in the past month and intend to wear it as long as the weather permits. Very soft, comfy.
Nevertheless, I don't think I can give it more than 3 starts due the following: 1) sizing. This is classic fit? The "Medium" seems to run quite large in waist and hip. 2) Quality. This just isn't what I expect out of LL Bean. Yes, it seems to handle the washer/dryer/living test (I tend to be gentle with the washer/dryer though). But there is a "discount store-ness" about the skirt, especially with the side seams--as another person noted, they don't really lay flat.
Would I recommend the skirt? Well, that would depend on who is asking and for what purpose. It suits my needs, and I am glad I purchased it. Still, LL Bean should seriously consider dusting off the design for the older "indispensable knit" skirt.
