Attention clothing manufacturers

I understand that long skirts are 'hot' right now. But I am only 5'5" and I have freakishly short legs. I look like I'm playing dress-up in my mother's clothing when I wear long skirts. Could you do me a favor and make one or two normal length skirts. I'm not picky. Basic color and design so I can mix and match would be fine.

Maybe you could lay off the cute little lace insets and embroidered crap too. Further, I do not, nor do MOST women, look good in a Peter Pan color. In fact, the last time I wore a Peter Pan color, I was...oh...EIGHT!

Thank you.

PS...Save a tree...Don't send me a flyer advertising all these great sale prices if you do not have the items in stock!

At 5'4, my super long skirts get wet on the bottom when it rains. Or sometimes I step on them and trip myself and/or expose my fanny.

If they didn't feel like pajamas, I'd never buy them again.

Applause! I'm 5-4 and a half - but not with pretty legs like I used to. Still, I don't like to trip over my skirts, either.

Have you tried Kohl's?

Can you ask them to make some mid-thigh length shorts as well? I'm 5' 2", and too old (re: fat) for short shorts and I look ridiculous in those knee-length shorts that are "in" right now.
