Is there such a thing??

Really like the 20s style dresses out there but have awful legs!

What about something like this?

The whole point of the flapper dresses was that they were short and showed the legs grin

The ASOS one is lovely but I really do have dreadful legs!

The first two Ebays ones are way out of my price range, however the third one is a possibility although looks quite small...

Did no one have horrible legs in the 20s?! Or did they wear short dresses anyway!

Are you any good at sewing? they have vintage style patterns on e-bay here and the style doesn't look too difficult to make.

I would love to be able to sew! Unfortunately not...

Not maxi but calf length?

Have a read of this - short dresses were only in fashion for a couple of years out of the 1920s decade
