Beautiful slip over the head dress. Drapes beautifully. Gorgeous beading- but beware the beading adds lots of weight to this dress. It is indeed a baby doll length. I am only 5'4", and the hemline is just to my kneecaps. Taller than me, and you will have a mini-skirt! BUT, just by trying on the dress for five minutes, THE UPPER INSIDES of my arms were all pink and scratched. HOW I could spend an evening of cocktails, dinner and dancing in this dress, I don't know. WHAT TO DO? RETURN IT? KEEP my arms akimbo all night? Put a wrap over the shoulders and wrap it around the bodice where the beads come into the contact with the arms????
