Great dress!  I have two comments:

1.  I think you should shorten it to the knee.  It would just make it that much more wonderful!

2. You are a cute lady and I like your style.  The hat is a lovely touch.

I think the length is perfect. It adds a touch of classic style to the look. Also remember when you sit down the back of the dress will come up a bit and the length you have will still cover your bum; if too short your bum will make direct contact with the chair/surface.

My mom always told me that skirts should hit just below the knee, where the leg narrows from the calf.  It makes your  legs look more shapely (I usually shorten to 2 inches above my knee, after which my thighs start to widen Sad You look really good in it regardless, though!

I love it! I agree with you, a little shorter would be even cuter.

So cute! Another vote for shortening it. It would look so carefree at knee-length.

yep, that's the length I tend to wear things these days (unless I'm wearing opaque tights and then it's a couple of inches above the knee before my thighs blossom) - I do not have nice knees. If you do, then go for above the knee.
