Bought this to wear to a very nice Holiday Party. It was so sloppy and long. I'm 5'10" and it came well below my knees. Was a polyester fabric with lace inserts but it just looked cheap. It came wadded in a plastic bag and was so wrinkled. Being polyester I wasn't even sure how to go about getting the wrinkles out without washing. I would be afraid to try and iron it. I knew I was ordering an unstructured garment but this was ridiculous. For your shorter ladies, it would be a trip hazard to even try walking around in this think I could have ordered a smaller size, but I don't think that would have resolved the many issues with this piece. I really liked the photo and was excited to receive, only to be majorly disappointed after I opened it and then tried it on.
