Really like the Cynthia Rowley one. I would love it in a floral voile or a solid red linen.

What's a mullet? I know 2 definitions: a fish, or a bad male hairdo (think Achy Breaky Heart). None of those definitions matches that dress!

Mullet= short in the front, long in the back. :)

I know, do they have to call that style a mullet? I have heard it called high-low, and prefer that name. :) I want to try one of those this spring, too!

Yes, I agree mullet, makes me think of bad hair cut. Wording can be everything in the world of advertising. I think the high-low hem line sounds much more appealing. (my 2 cents worth)

My daughter has senior prom this year....that last dress...hummm... although she said "I will NEVER wear a dress you made to prom". But gives me ideas....not that I can sew that material. She is like a size 0- and we just can't find dresses that fit. I think her size would equate to a girls size 8 to 10 on top. Arggg...

The proper term for what's called a "mullet" dress here is "hi-low" or "asymmetrical hemline". There's just never a reason to use the word "mullet" in reference to design. Really.

I think of the hair as more "Joe Blow" than "achy Breaky"
