Rated 2 out of 5 by CynR Regular is a petite hem
Well made skirt. That is why I came back to buy more. Be warned that the regular length is 19.5 inches. (Which is the petite length!) This happened twice on this item to me.
Is this a mistake on L.L. Bean's part? Or are we being sold irregulars without knowledge? L.L. Bean has always been awesome in quality & descriptions in the past. Not being reliable as of late is making shopping online a bit pricey with the $6.50 returns. and the inconsistent descriptions and items being sold.
L.L. Bean, please be aware of this problem. Please get honest descriptions on your products. Looking at other reviews lately I see that I am not the only one noticing this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TorahGal Love it - runs big
The cargo skirt is very cute & comfy. Runs a little large. I was not sure what size to order as according to LL Bean's size guidelines my waist is 30 & my hips 35 (size 10 & size 2). I called & was told to order an 8. They were out of 8, so I ordered a 6, and it fits perfectly. I'm 5'3", 105 lbs, it hits just at the knee. I'm letting down the hem to get the extra 1", but it's very well made, & has a double hem, so it's a little difficult to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovingcotton Nice fabric, nice color, BUT.............
I loved this skirt when I ordered it. It looked like a nice weight material, not like the see-through materials sold today. I got the olive green color because it goes with my neutral color wardrobe for cruising the Caribbean islands. The length is nice and falls just above the knee on me, and I'm 5'3, 110 pounds.
I wore the skirt for the first time on my cruise two weeks ago, and my husband kept telling me to straighten the back.. When I turned it around to straighten the back, the front looked crooked!! So I took it off and put it flat on a table and sure enough, the back seam was not centered. One back pocket is about 2 inches from the center seam, and the other is almost 3 inches!!
I'm thinking of returning it, along with the exact kind of shorts I bought along with the skirt. The shorts are nice too, but for some reason they pull up in the seat. The sizing is correct, but the fit is off.
I would love to exchange them for two of the same items, but I don't want to chance that they are all made incorrectly. I hope L.L.Bean doesn't charge me for the shipping!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by englishshepherdlover Too Short!
I can't believe this is being sold as a regular length skirt. I ordered my usual size, 12 Regular, and couldn't believe how short it is. I'm returning it pronto!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DetectiveMo Casual, Cool, & Comfy
Saw this on sale, but my size wasn't available in the color I wanted in a regular length, so I went with some other people's recommendations to order up a size, and get the petite. It's a little big around the waist, so it hangs off my hips, but does come down to the top of my kneecaps, which is great.
Not sure if this would fit someone who isn't built straight up and down, but it works well on me.
I'm not inclined to iron it, although some people might prefer to, around the cargo pockets, if they want them to lie absolutely flat. I figure it's a casual skirt that's fine for running errands, doing chores in the garden, and general wear around the house. Good for dinner at a pub or a sports bar, but probably not for anything fancier.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarleneJ Needs ironing
My only complaint is it needs ironing. You might could get away w/o ironing, but it looks better. It is a cute skirt. I got the pink beige. I like the pockets. I was happy some of the reviews said to go up a size, which is what I did.

I wore this grocery shopping on a recent hot day with summer top and sandals-- its a perfect summer skirt - cute and sassy - bought it in olive but wish it more kaki green, but it will do, I will wear all summer to play in, .

Great skirt. Long enough that I can bend over to tend to the baby and no part of my hiney is hanging out. I always worry that llbean clothes will look too matronly but I find this cute, functional and comfortable. Ordered the navy and washes great. Hasn't faded. Has a little give in the material so it's not restrictive. Maybe with an inch shorter hem it would be more youthful but I like it where it hits me.
For reference I ordered an 8. I'm 29, 5'9 / 142lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SFCyclist Great skirt
This is a sweet little skirt. I used the fit expert tool and the 8 fits perfectly (I'm 5'7", 135 lbs, long-waisted). The length is just above the knee on me. The fabric has a little bit of stretch and there is a waist drawstring for a customized fit. The pockets on the sides lie smoothly--hopefully that will be the case after laundering as well. I bought it in two colors and will keep both (green, blue).
