airiness and sweltry

A few weeks ago one commenter made a remark that my floral dress looks like a curtain which I taciturnly differed. But you know what looks like a curtain is this vintage Evan Picone skirt. To be more specific think of Ikea curtains. Or maybe Ikea shower curtains.
I am debating whether to chopped or to just leave the skirt as it is. The fabric is polyester without lining, if I make it shorter, it would lose its drapes. I love the polka dots print and the pleats gathering at the waist. Also the airiness as the weather is sweltering here.
Speaking of humid, I remember a passage from The Victim by Saul Bellow:

On summer nights New York is as hot as Bangkok. The whole continent seems to have moved from its place and slid nearer the equator, the bitter gray Atlantic to have become green and tropical, and the people, thronging the streets, barbaric fellahin among the stupendous monuments of their mystery, the lights of which, a dazing profusion, climb upward endlessly into the heat of the sky.
