I had an alterer take it up so it rested at the start of my feet and below the ankle. I also got her to take in the sleeves as they come a bit wide for the style of the dress. I also got a diamond brooch to pin the bolera to the strap on the dress as the bolera is a bit top heavy and kept 'riding' back when I moved around in it.
I commented before the wedding about the fit of the dress, but on the day of the wedding, it was even better. I got a million compliments on the dress & nobody believed how inexpensive it was (not even the seamstress I got to alter the straps!).
