-Some very slight colourbleed by zip, not very noticeable, I think from the thread. See photo.
-Hem has been let down by about 2.8" leaving the slightest slightest crease line. Current length is very generous so could easily be taken up again by the same amount and still remain a midi skirt.
-Just a note on the colour: I think this is an intentional off-black, it's a very dark grey colour and NOT a faded black. There are no colour streaks hidden in the pleats and colour is consistent to all seam allowances and internally. There may be some very very minor fade, but nothing noticeable that detracts. Just wanted to note this as it is quite an unusual shade of near black/grey, and not an inky black.
