LOL at your review! I am always leery of empire waists, but this is very flattering on you. I may give it a try. I'm '8 and would need an FBA; sounds like I'll have to drop the elastic several inches.

Hilary, that is just about my comments about my height! My feet reach the floor when I stand up! I'm hoping we'll have a bit of summer sometime soon so I can wear it!

I love this!! And it looks great on you, too :o) I am 5'1.5" (every bit counts, lol) and when someone says I'm short I tell them, Well, my legs reach the ground when I walk! :D Anyway, glad to see this looks good on a petite woman like me~thanks for the great tips!

Thank you for all your sweet comments. It is floor length. I might try it about knee length if I can find fabric.

You look so nice in this not at all like your description of yourself! I made this dress to take with me to Florida and wore it inside whenever it rained or we were just having a stay at home day - very, very comfortable and so nice looking on - could be worn as a maxi dress

I have made this dress twice and love it. I also had to move the elastic down the width of the casing.
