Elegant and stunning dress, SewWil! The band at the bottom is a clever and smooth transition. ;-)

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.

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!

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

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.
