When my bf saw this dress, he was horrified and said you look like a 50 year old school teacher. Scroll down to see the unaltered dress and I think you might agree with him. LOL.
But I definitely saw potential in this dress and I think its much cuter with a mini length!

The Pros: The fabric of this dress is very lightweight and the dress is not form fitting so it's a very comfortable dress to wear [esp. for those warm spring/summer days and I'm crossing my fingers that we'll have those very soon]. I also like the ruffle coming down the skirt which adds a fun and flirty element to the dress. My favorite part of the dress are the polka dots!! I've been trying to find a similar polka dot print fabric, but haven't had much luck.
The Cons: On the model, the dress is a midi length so I already knew it was going to be super long on me. But in order to pull off this dress at the given length I think you'd have to be at least 5'6 or 5'7! On me, it's almost a maxi dress.
The armholes are also a tad too big for me and so is the chest area, but keep in mind (and I'm sure you can see) that I'm not very well endowed in that department.
Shoulders: 13" | Chest: 16" | Waist: 12.5" | Hips: 17" | Length: 42"
I trimmed a whopping 14" off the length!!
Below is what I wore to dinner on a colder night.
