The gathering, the embellishments... to me, this dress is glamorous even though it's not full length.
This dress comes from a custom dressmaker in London. It's so 1950's and would be perfection with colorful shoes and a birdcage veil, don't you think?
And how about this dress found on Etsy:
The ruffles make a dramatic statement and the dress is quite formal even though it's knee-length.
