A little help please?

The Boy & I are going to see the Glenn Miller Orchestra in June at the Surf Ballroom in Cedar Lake, IA. Now the question is WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?!?!?
I bought a vintage dress on Etsy (I’m addicted to it) and am thinking it might fit the bill but I’m not really sure. I’m fairly certain the dress will fit me… Once I hem it. The measurements on Etsy say it’s 47″ from armpit to floor… To say I’m NOT 47″ from armpit to floor is a huge understatement.
What do you guys think? And are there any ideas for a backup plan? This isn’t just going to be a concert it’s also going to be a dance. Your help is GREATLY appreciated.

    The dress is gorgeous! I’m sure it would be perfect for the dance.

    that is a really pretty dress and i thinkt he color would be perfect on you!
    get it tailored (should be cheap)

    The potential tailoring doesn’t worry me… The Boy’s mom is a wiz with that kind of thing (so is his grandma)… They take up the “slack” for me since I moved away from Erin. : )

    The dress is awesome! I’m thinking that the style actually was to be wearing high heels and the dress would be floor skimming. But I could be wrong. Be sure to let us see how it looks when the fitting session is finished! ๐Ÿ™‚
