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.
The dress is gorgeous - simple but very beautiful! I had the dress custom made, and it fits perfectly. Lenght is a bit too much, but that is easy to fix. I received the dress in 3 weeks from my order date to Northern Europe. Very very satisfied!
