Did they measure you to determine the length for the dress?  Hollow to hem?  If they did, and the dress doesn’t match that measurement, then there is a problem.  If not, then you should ask to see the measurement difference between the regular and petite.  I bet the petite is made for women who are like 5’6″ or 5’7″.

I think that sounds wrong. I am 5’3 and ordered a maggie petite and the store lady thought there was a chance I wouldn’t need hemming after the hoop skirt is added.

I ordered a petite.  I am 5’2, and after I put on my 4″ heels, my dress still needed half an inch of hemming.  How much does yours need?  These dresses are super long whether petite or not.

From what I know Maggie doesn’t charge $100 for a petite dress.  I ordered mine in petite and the store said it was the same price.  Petite will apparently (says my dress store) fit a 5’6″ – 5’8′.  I’m 5’5″ and ordered the petite and they told me not to buy shoes just until the dress came in so I could make it the right length. 


Maybe email maggie sottero and ask them if they put a petite label in the dresses?

I ordered a Maggie petite and I still needed to hem.  I have to go check my dress, but I’m not sure the label would say petite on it.

I paid extra for the petite size. I’m 5’4 and with 2 inch heels I needed no hemming at all.
