Love that top as a dress! Very, very nice!

Amy-may, whether or not you decide to straighten the hem, this top turned into dress is absolutely charming on you. Yes, compliments will abound. Completely lovely, Lily

And compliments you will certainly get - it looks so wonderful on you - as for the hem issue - from what I can see in the photo it looks like it is coming down to two fairly long points so maybe shortening that would do the trick - your call - but be assured it looks great

I am a huge proponent of lengthening tops into dresses, and I think that was a great call here. The asymmetric knot is interesting!

Compliments that I'm sure you'll receive. The dress is lovely on you. The hem--I'm not sure. I like the hem from the front, not so much from the side, but wear it then cut if off if necessary.

The bodice detail and the fit are beautiful, but I agree with the kid who says the asymetrical hem is not very flattering on this length.

This is done beautifully. It compliments your shape well. I love the asymmetrical knot.

i love this on you. very slimming, as you say you are a bit of a myself. i am not sure about the asymmetrical hem. i guess you can always cut it off in the future.
