Hello there!

The fabric was cut last year, back in the time when I was still following a sewing-class. Unfortunately, I had never finished making the dress, but a couple of weeks ago I saw it lying around and finally finished it!





Only one question, should I shorten it 'till knee-length? I'm not completely satisfied the way it is right now, think it's a bit too long..

C&C appreciated!

Ah, it's really pretty.
I think it would look much better shorter. SHOW THOSE GORGEOUS LEGS!  Grin
Lol. I think there needs to be more "leg-length" between the end of the dress and the ankles.

The dress fits you beautifully!  Great job.  I'm going to fourth the call for knee length.

Also, I love the print.  Where'd you find it?

If you're going to wear heels with it, I'd say leave it the length it is.  If you're going to wear flats, shorten it, but be sure to pin it up to check the length first so you're happy with it.

Well majority rules!
I would hem it to grace the top of your knee, you can still wear heels with it or flats for a day of shopping in the city!
Love it!

Wonderful dress!  I agree that it would look great on you if it was shorter.
