This dress is beautiful. I love the embroidery and the colors are AMAZING. It's a little short, but I'm also tall. I would say, if modesty is a concern, this dress would work best on somebody shorter. For reference, I'm about 5'9"/5'10" and it's about 5" above my knees. Good for grilling outside or even going out with my husband for a night with some of the awesome earrings I bought on this site!
