Has anyone short tried the Monica? The dimensions seem so long, but I'm thinking the ruching may help with that? I'm less worried about the length overall and more about where the darts and curves hit. I'm 5ft and I will need an XL or 2x which are both pretty long. Curious, especially if you've made it work on this end of the size chart.

Have you had a look at Jessica Meloche/martin of Pinup persuasion. She is 5 4 and posted pix of her in a Monica. To be fair it was longish on her. http://pinuppersuasion.com/2013/01/04/ringing-in-2013-with-a-bang/ is the link
I'm 5'3" and my size large Monica comes down to right below my knees, which is the perfect length for me. Because of the ruching you could probably get away with hiking it up a bit

I am 5'2" and a size L if that helps. It IS long on me. maybe mid-calf? I wear it with high heels and seamed stockings to gve the illusion of length for the bit of my leg you can see! It is an AWESOME dress! 

Hi I am 5 foot 4 and wear the large. I am constantly trying to readjust because it rides up in the top part

. I ran into a tall girl in girls room and she said she has the dress and has the same problems. I think the dimensions are just not right no matter what your height is. That being said, I get a ton of compliments on the dress, so it you don't mind the readjusting, you will enjoy the dress. 

Y'all are sweet to reply, but I already ordered...and returned it. The biggest issue was that the things hidden by the ruching in the front were exposed by the relative lack of it in the back.. In the event that any other shorties need this info though...at 5 ft 0...the length pretty much doesn't work, at least not in the 2x. If the XL had been available, I might have been able to get it to "stick" to my curves, but as is the weight of the dress made it sag down. It just looked like my dress was eating me, rather than looking like a dresses I vamped and wiggled into. If there weren't other fit issues I might have considered alterations. My friend has the XL. I'll post again if the results are different when I try that.
