You pick such perfect patterns for your figure (although with your figure you probably look great in everything). This is lovely and looks beautifully made.

Your dress is beautiful and your method of lengthening it is first class.

LOL! I looked at your pic first and thought "Hmmm...I have that pattern and I don't remember seeing that cute band at the bottom"! Super cute on you and great idea on the lengthening!

I love your version of the dress! I actually like the extra band at the hem - it looks intentional and like an extra detail to the dress. Fabulous job.
