This is the first skater dress I've purchased because I've been worried about the length: the pictured models for the skater dresses & skirts make them look so short. I think they just must have long legs! I am 5'4" & the hem hits right above the knee. The fit is flattering & flares a bit, so I've worn biker shorts on underneath it just in case the wind picks up. The only weird thing is the exterior seaming near the shoulder area; there seems to be a little too much fabric so it doesn't lay flat there. Had so many compliments on the pattern of the fabric, though. Cute little smiley milk bottles!
