This dress is great to wear on roasting hot summer days - comfortable, cool and stays crisp. I loved it after I wore it, was a bit "maybe" before that due to slightly polyester feel of the fabric (likely due to poly content haha). I'm 5'3" and it was just above the knee like the photo. As much as I love the dress, my spouse thinks it looks like Charlie's grandfather's nightshirt in the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". A bit on the roomy side but that works for hot weather clothing.
