Good for a tall gal but not for a petite

I received three of these sweaters in white, blue and pink. The colours are very nice, the fabric is a standard Kinross-quality cashmere (don't expect it to be JofE quality when paying a small fraction of what the other costs). The simple nautical style of this sweater is great for where I've been planning to wear it - Nantucket. However, there is a big "but." This sweater does not end on me at the mid-hip, as it's shown in Sierra's photos; it wraps my entire torso, bottom cheeks and then a little some making me think: "is it a sweater or is it a mini-dress for a teenage girl (surely, not me)?" I'm concluding that a tall gal would look great in this Kinross sweater; I, on the other hand, should not be wearing it. Note to self: when it says 24" long (and stretches some, especially the white one), double check with my own body and don't base it on how it looks like on that lady in a photo.
