    I think you should order the calf length for two reasons: because it looks good and you could also get it shortened by a seamstress in the US after you receive it (if you decide that tea length is your preference once you can try it on).

    i love the first dress!!! so different 🙂 i agree with the above PP. calf length can be shortened by your seamstress. if you are still not sure, you can get the seamstress to pin it up so you get an idea on how they both would look with your shoes. that way you can make the decision based on what you’ve seen.

    I LOVE their dresses! That one is gorgeous. The polka dot one is also to die for. If I had the budget I would have gone for one of theirs in a heart beat.

    I agree. Go longer then shorten it if you need. I can’t picture the “v neck” with the stripes and the illusion neckline though?

    SkinnyLatte17:  I agree with PP…get the longer option and shorten if needed. That is ADORABLE!!!

    Like the others, I think calf length is better just to give you more options – but I think ultimately tea length would be more flattering.

    Actually, you may find that even tea length is too long and the best length for you is just covering the knee. I’m the same height as you, wore kitten heels only, and that is the length I went with. Tea length was just a tad too long.

    Another issue – I’m not sure if the neckline works as well as a v-neck, with the stripes. I would think about making the illusion neckline bit sheer (but still v-neck) so that the stripes start at the bodice instead of the shoulder. I think that would make the neckline less busy and give you more options for jewellery etc.
