After that, though, I still wasn't happy with it, so I chopped 5 inches off the length. Now I love it! Sometimes I give up on things that seem like a ton more work because I completely hate altering, but I'm so glad I persevered this time.
More pictures after the jump and don't forget to tell me what you think!
Here's another picture of the shoulder detail in case you missed it the first time. (And because it's my favorite part of the dress.)
I think this cropped length is much more flattering on me. I have several midi skirts in my closet that I regularly wear so I can't really explain why the original design was so dowdy. Perhaps it was fabric choice.
