On My Mind

Going To Great Lengths

There were a number of comments about skirt lengths on my LWD post. More specifically, concerns about the DvF dress being too short, and that there’s a dearth of knee-length options available. We should be heartened by the WSJ article on The Row—  that the Olsen sisters are designing for us. Also, Tomas Maier’s resort collection is packed with the lengths we are looking for. And I’ll keep my eye out for more dresses and skirts cut to the knee.

  • I’m 5’3″, and for the past several years, I’ve been taking dresses / skirts to the tailor to have them lengthened!

  • I have been wondering for a long time why finding knee length dresses was so difficult, so I started my own dress line. Have been selling through trunk shows in San Francisco. Web will be live in June.
    Lady-like knee length dresses.

  • Agreed. Can’t walk into boardroom in a mini. Thanks!!

    And P.S. to any designers who may be listening: if you want to go ‘short’, at least give us a very generous hem.
