A few months ago, I found this adorable peach full-skirted 50's dress at Feathers here in Austin. It fit perfectly, but I had only worn it once as the length wasn't quite right. Well, my husband & I have now become obsessed with Mad Men--we got sucked in last season and have since caught up thanks to the magic of Netflix! I was inspired to revisit this dress and lop off just enough length to prevent Stubby Legs Syndrome, while keeping the original mid-century vibe.
Ta-daaa! Slightly shorter.
In the end I only took about 3 inches off, but it feels like a huge difference. This was lovely in its original form, but this length will be better with flats I think. Hooray practicality!
