Thanks very much, you are all so kind! I may consider the belt idea though...

It's a consensus - leave it the way it is, however, I agree the other view might have worked better. It looks comfy. I love long soft dresses at around home on cool summer evenings.

Yes, leave it long! Love this print (Walmart? I wouldn't have guessed:) I will definitely bind the armholes and neckline if I make this one. Looks fantastic on you!:)

That dress looks great! The stripe fabric gives it such impact! I wouldn't cut it, either. If you really feel that it looks sac-like (and I don't see it) maybe take it in a bit more at the side seams, particularly at the waist. I'd do this incrementally so that you don't end up taking too much out.

Oh no don't cut it! The length is perfect for this fabric. It doesn't look like as sack at all at the pictures, it isn't loose at all! I would wear it as it is! Have you tried a belt?

Leave it long--it is gorgeous on you! Would that something would hang like a sack like that on me!

No, goodness me, that does not hang like a sack. It looks very good, I looked at the blog pics and maybe it is a little wide around the shoulder/armhole area?? The overall flow of it is great, I will have to be more alert in Walmart for such interesting fabric. I agree with those who say definitely keep it long.
