My granddaughter said, "Grandma, I love long dresses." So I rummaged through my big box of children's patterns and showed her a few. "This one," she said decidedly. I'm thinking it was the back detail that captured her fancy. To make a long dress, I had to add to the length of the dress, plus I added a ruffle, 1-1/2 time longer than the width of the skirt around the bottom to make a lightly gathered ruffle that would reach to the floor. The bodice is lined and I used some of that fabric to make a covered back button. All done and in the mail it will go to Idaho.
