This graph illustrating the history of skirt lengths in the United States is oddly interesting and appealing, a job well done. I like that the graph lines fairly well reveal the amount of leg shown by the rising and lowering hemlines, measuring the height above the ankle from bottom to top.
Now: I offer what I think must be the female record for the most distance between the ankle and the hemline--I reckon it to be about 60 feet.
There are certainly a wide universe of captions for this picture, but for some reason I'm most comfotable with the exposed-leg connection.
