How to Determine Your Vertical Body Shape
Things are regularly too short on me, and my past solution has been to not buy them, which is sad. Love all these suggestions and I will definitely be incorporating some of them — especially the leggings underneath. I love that you get yourself an early birthday present just in case: I like wearing short skirts, but mostly in the colder months when I can wear them with tights or leggings. I have a couple of short summer dresses that I wear with bike short-length leggings underneath or over a longer skirt.
All great ideas Suzanne and you look fabulous in each outfit! However, with those gorgeous legs, you can wear any length, just be careful getting in and out of the car. I actually have used them all, except adding the fabric becuase my sewing skills are only good for quilting. Although I could easily talk a friend into helping me. Normally I only sew paper…for scrapbooking and I managed to do it! The trick of wearing a skirt underneath is often my go-to solution.
The type of skirt, patterns and material matter a lot, I find. Angel, however, is very vocal about how much he hates it, because in his opinion, wearing jeans under my short dresses totally defeats the purpose of a short dress. Love the way you added what looks like stripes to the patterned dress.
And of course darker tights work too, and certain slips. I am having trouble with one dress that is too short, so i am glad you posted this. I actually think this dress would look killer with a 4-inch piece of suede in a deep rusty brown attached along the bottom. I LOVE that idea! Now to find the right colour of suede and someone to do it.
Great tips, Suzanne, especially the one about adding a ruffle or coordinating strip of fabric along the bottom. I definitely wear my shorter dresses more in the winter, simply because layering tights underneath gives me more confidence to wear the shorter length.
We shorties can wear them with heels, and taller ladies can wear them with flats. Thank you, thank you! It is such a lovely dress, a beautiful pattern. I hope you will find a solution worth for it. Lately I made a skirt from a dress which was too short. Wish I could sew so I could add a cute layer!
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for linking up! I usually wear them with boots and tights. I love the petticoat look, so cute! I am a big fan of the fabric add-on. I have done it to a number of my dresses. I would work around it like you have done so splendidly. I agree with all your options although opaque tights is my least favourite. It helps but the dress is still too short for me. Having said that, I do love your dress with the opaque tights and that cute cardigan.
In summer you will have to come up with another solution. How about sewing a piece to the dress to elongate it and then add a little rim of the same material taken from the hem of the dress at the very bottom? Love the sleeves on this dress. I so wish that I had not been to cool as a teenager to not let my grandma teach me how to sew when she wanted to.
I typically go with the tights if something is too short. I hope all goes well with the specialist for your sinuses.
I personally do not think that dress is too short. Looks great with the dark tights and dark topper which make it look longer. Also, I thought you were at least 5. You have long legs, girl. And I also love short dresses over leggings, skinny pants or skinny jeans. In love with the flower art wall. Please let me know have you showed a tour of that room before? I want to see it. I think these tips are spot-on and I really like the examples you showed off.
I have never and will never turn to your tip no. Do you maybe know someone who has the same dress picture 2nd extra inches in size s and wants to sell it?
