Who says a short girl can’t wear a long dress?! You tall ladies can certainly rock these long looks, but us shorter gals can too. When I tried on this crochet back maxi dress and it fit without having to pull puddles of fabric up from the floor I was so stoked. I’m 5’1 and wearing the petite xs with wedge heels and didn’t alter it at all. That.never.happens! But, the cool thing is that it comes in regular also. 😉
But here’s the part that had me drooling – the crocheted back!
So pretty and different!
Then, I also found this marcia print maxi dress (also in petite) and again, a perfect fit. I’m wearing the same wedge sandals with this dress, but could easily wear flat sandals with this one since it’s a little shorter in the length.

Chances are, if you’re under 5’4 like me, if the dress doesn’t come in petite, you’ll have to alter the length. This is why I wish I could sew better! Seems like such a simple alteration to just hem the bottom of a dress, I should try to sew straight lines better. I hemmed my son’s birthday Power Ranger costume and have made drapes and pillow covers, but haven’t really ever hemmed my own clothes. So jealous of you ladies that can sew!
