I am on a mission to finally get a bunch of my clothes altered to the length and fit that is needed in order for them to look the most flattering on me. So, for fun, I decided to photograph each item that I am getting fixed, and show the before and after shots of how they look. This dress is a great example of my problems with funny dress lengths. Let’s be honest, as much as I love Mad Men—the way the women showcase their ankles while still looking sexy, but without showing their knees—the below the knee length does not work on me because of my height. Standing at an extremely tall 5’4″, I still need to lift my hem up a few inches in order to avoid looking short and stout. So, with that said, stay tuned to see the final product!
