It's in the sale in my size (I think) but can you tell me if it runs small or big? Also, it says above the knee but I've got no idea how far ... I'm about 5ft5 - would this be miles above the knee or just on the knee? Wish they'd show these on models or at least give some idea of length.....
I don't think that is right whoneedssleep. You are nine inches taller than dotty. so even if 50% of your height difference is in your legs (as would be normal) then only the top half of your leg coutns right? so it'd be about 50% of 50% of 9 inches.
So between 2 and 2 and a half inches shorteer on YOU than it would be on dotty. Depending on both of your proportions.
Im 5 7 and the length was fine on me but the horizontal stripes across the arse were a disaster! Why did they do that? Lovely bias stripes at the front then unflattering straight across at the back : ( Gutted as its otherwise gorgeous
I found this dress quite big and unflattering. I don't understand the hype!! but I hope it suits you better (for reference am 5'6 and a curvy size 8, as in have hips and D-cup chest). Perhaps because I have broad shoulders, the cap sleeves didn't work, unbalanced the whole look ... hmmm.
I am 5'10" and have the stripe and the navy. Neither one massively short ( a few inches above the knee, I guess?) although yes, the navy does shrink. I sized up in the navy (fabric quite fine and unforgiving) and stayed regular size in stripe (thicker, not as clingy on derriere )
Just to say, if you grab a dress from your wardrobe that is a good length, measure it, etc you can compare the "length" or "drop". Most websites generally provide these garment details. I think with me anything much less than 92cm leaves me a bit breezy in the ol' nethers...
