Subject: Does anyone have a formula for calculating overall dress length from the dancer's height please? Just to give an average dress length, for a start?

Personally, I would not use this kind of formula. Not a dressmaker, but my dd is 5'2" and friends dd is about 5'7" and their dresses are only around 1" difference in length. Tall dd has very long legs and average body length. Another dancer of the same height could have a long body and shorter legs which I would imagine, would change the dress length. Happy to be told I'm wrong though! (NT)-Monday, December 02, 09:48:15pm

I think technically, the skirt has to hit at least halfway between the BACK of the knee and the gluteal fold...not that ANY judge gets out there with a ruler, but...use that point from the ground and you have your dress length. (NT)***Tuesday, December 03, 02:58:28am

On average, the back dress length is half the dancer's height. Doesn't work for unique shapes, small ones, etc. Desired length is also subjective as usually prizewinner wear longer than prelim or open champs. Also we see regional differences and teacher preferences. (NT)AVERAGETuesday, December 03, 09:47:58am

My dd is now 22 dancing since 6, her chest measurement has always been same as length of dress, strange but true!! (NT)dmWednesday, December 04, 10:43:20pm
