Couture Confus et Erroné

(Why no, I can't speak French. I do know what all those words mean, but whethe they make a coherent phrase is a mystery to me. And speaking of mysteries...)

As so often, I am confused by fashion and almost as often, by fashion terminology, but when did a dress that barely hits he bottom of the kneecap become a "midi dress"?

The range of which the knee is the "mid"-point, even if the floor is the measure of "maxi"-ness, would put the other end of the spectrum gynecologist's territory-adjacent.

Which, now that I think of it, describes quite a bit of clothing I see.
Never mind, carry on.
