This is the link to my dress post for reference.
The dress isn’t actually supposed to have a train, and since I’m short I thought the dress might be cutting me off in an awkward place in the front. So, I thought it would be nice to shorten the hem a bit to raise the front and show a little more leg (still below the knee). Now, though, I’m thinking it might be ok and I kind of like the look of the train.
What do you guys think? Does the current length of the front look a bit awkward on my short frame? Should I shorten the hem a little?

I actually think it looks good the way it is. If I have this right thou you want to shorten the front but leave the back in a train?? If so NO 🙂
If it was all shortened to tea length or something that would be cute still BUT it wouldn’t be unique like your dress is now…

Not diggin’ the train, but for some reason I like how the 4th picture looks.. maybe because the dress looks shorter in the 4th than it does in the other pics.
I googled your dress style and came across the pic below. I think if you had this length with some heels it’d be SUPER cute! Your dress seems to be made to highlight your legs and your current length doesn’t do that..

dress twin! I won’t be shortening mine because I can get away without any alterations. Are you going to have it hemmed in the back no matter what? If you were already having it done then I could see you wanting to raise up the front more. I don’t personally because I have big calves and this helps minimize them, but if you want to show a little more leg then go for it!

I love the dress on you just the length it is – it looks very couture

I like the length and the train that isn’t supposed to be there, its really pretty and chic.

I loved this dress when I tried it on and it was “the one” of my research dresses. I ended up buying a much different dress but wish that it would have been the length on me that it is on you (I’m nearly 6 ft tall).

I love it as is, but you could also take it up a few inches to emphasize the hi-lo hemline, like this:

I like it the way it is now 🙂 But if you want to highlight your legs, making it a little shorter definately wont hurt 🙂

I think you’re right, a shorter front might be a lot more flattering. Can’t go wrong either way, though. It’s gorge.

Thanks for your thoughts, ladies!
I was thinking I’d shorten the front and back at the same time – I hadn’t considered doing just the front. Something to consider!
@hopefloats: & everyone one who said keep the length, what are your thoughts on keeping the train but shortening the front a bit?
Thanks for the visual for this option!
Yay for dress twins! It’s so cool to see the dress on other brides as well. Are you going with white or coloured shoes?
