Rayon Challis Skirt
This is a middle of the road summer skirt. Nothing special about it - the fabric is nice which is why I kept it. Little maintenance but it doesn't particularly flatter my figure. Like most of the clothes from Vermont Country Store, it is basically mid 50's design which is kind of timeless but has little or no wow factor to it.

just what I wanted
I had been looking for a rayon print dress or skirt for office wear in the summer. This was just what I wanted.

I adore rayon for summer! Nothing feels quite so cool and silky soft. I opened the package & put this skirt on immediately. Must be extraordinarily comfortable as I didn't take it off until bed that night. I felt I must own this skirt already as it is "so me." Ordered the blue and no detectable odors. My nose is sensitive.

Too Much Dye Made the Skirt Smell Awful
When I removed the skirt from the packaging, there was a dreadful odor. I hung it outside for hours to air it out, but nothing could get rid of the smell. It's a pretty skirt and it fits me well. But with the smell, it was not wearable. Even my cats sniffed it and couldn't stand it. I think the smell was from the dye. I hand washed it and an enormous amount of black dye came out in the water. The other colors in the skirt picked up some of the dye from the water and they are no longer as bright and pretty as they were before the washing. The black now looks more like midnight blue. The smell is gone and after ironing it with a cool iron, I can wear the skirt. It looks a bit dingy though.
