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 could not believe that I could just put it on! amazing. The beadwork is lovely. You will love this dress if you are looking for a big princess look with a really long train.
