Are Didriksons Parkas too long for short people?

After lots of threads on here recommending the Didriksons parkas I had a look, and I quite like the Tilde and the Tove. Thing is, I am only 5' 3" and I am worried they will be down to my knees and look ridiculous.....

I was going to start a thread asking exactly the same question. I am even shorter

I think so. I'm 5'9 and the sleeves are v long on me. Mine also comes down to my knees almost.

I am 5'4" and very happy with the length of my Veronica parka.

Humph. That was a lot of use grin

I don't mind long sleeves, in fact I like them as I don't wear gloves and like sleeves that pretty much come over my hands.

It would be so much easier if Didriksons would just list the length by size...

I'm 5ft7 and have the Taylor and it is knee length.

lots of styles are shorter.

I'd say my Taylor is just above knee length- I am about 5'6"

I'm only 5ft 3" and I think my Taylor is a nice length and fairly fitted.

Hmm, I guess it depends a lot in what size you buy as I think they get longer the larger the size? Will have to see one in rl I guess...
