Fantastic dress, lovely material. I actually ordered it in 16 and 18 tall (not the size shown). I am not tall but the petite sizes were unavailable and I was impatient. I was pleasantly surprised that the size 16 fitted almost perfectly. I say 'perfectly' because when I came to wear it out, as opposed to trying it on, I realised it was a couple of inches too long! I was about to get it shortened, when I checked the website again, and at last the petite sizes were in stock. I've just collected size 16 and 18 petite. Hope these are the correct length, but even if I had to shorten the tall size, it would be well worth it. It's such a lovely dress.
