Someone made a dress out of that fabric in the first sewing class I took.  Awesome.

Based on these pictures, I'd say the length looks perfect. Love that lace underskirt!

i love this dress! that radio fabric was a great find. I'm petite, too (5'2"ish) and i've found that longer hem lengths can work but the dress *has* to fit correctly. if the bust and waist don't fit correctly then it can look like you're swimming in the garment. but in reference to your dress -- i'd say it looks great on you! and since you have a tie in the back, it will always fit well Smiley  I say keep it tea length! It's adorable, especially with the lace underskirt.

Okay, so I thought it was pretty damn cool until I saw the underskirt. Now I think it's pretty damn awesome! I loove the lace. lol Just the type of thing I would do. lol It looks really nice. I could only hope someday I could make dresses so nicely. I'm getting there. Tongue

Awesome dress, I think the length is great on you.  I LOVE the lace underskirt, the zebra trim really makes it pop.

Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

Awww, yeah!!! Girl, you never let us down!  The fabric combo is awesome!  Nice that it stretches enough so you don't have to put in a zipper.

I like the length here to wear myself.  I think it would still be awesome if you shorten it to just at or above your knees.. It will still be swishy, and have that attitude that you wear so well!

Great cute fabric, great new dress!
