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 bought this dress in the royal blue and received it today. It is amazing quality, a perfect fit (make sure you measure yourself and go by that, it's exactly right), and it arrived exactly when they said it would. I'm a little bigger, and I got this in the size 18, and it's really really flattering on me. Some people said they had problems with customs and that they had to pay extra for that, but I'm in the U.S. and didn't have any problems. I am sooo excited to wear this dress on my upcoming cruise!
