No, but there have been some threads on this lately!  Does the dress you love have any seams for the skirt that could be altered by bringing the skirt upwards?

i’m 5’3 and have tried on numerous maggie and sottero and midgley dresses. i have been assured that i won’t lose any of the lace detailing at the bottom as they “pick” it off and put it on again or something? i’ve been to a few shops and they all said the same. also maybe you can order in a shorter length?

I’m not petite, but I did get my Maggie Sottero lace dress hemmed a few inches and I didn’t lose any of the lace detailing/trim at the bottom.  I don’t know how my seamstress did it, but it looked great!

It’s an applique lace border that is removed, then hemmed and resewn.

I just went through this last night! I have Maggie’s Georgina gown, with the lace trim bottom. I’m 5′ 1”, wearing 1/2 inch kitten heels & ordered the petite…. well the seamstress still had to carefully cut the lace off the tuile bottom and reattach it higher up. Little stressfull but i’m sure it will look amazing!

I have a Maggie Sottero dress and I am only 5’1″ and was barefoot on the beach for my wedding. The alterations people did an amzing job! Absolutely nothing was lost and I had it hemmed a good 5 inches. I would not worry about the lace details. I’m sure your seamstress will make sure it looks perfect!
