Petite maxi summer dress

Is there such a thing? All the summer maxi dresses I try are too long - I am 5'6

I feel your pain. I'm 5'2 and even petite maxi dresses are usually too long on me.

I find the best thing to do is buy one that's too long and take it to be altered. It only costs a few pounds and it ensures it'll hit just right.

I am only an inch taller than you and don't have this problem.
