    I love the wrap dress and I’m looking to make one but I’m new to sewing. So here maybe a stupid question, how did you lengthen the pattern?

    How much fabric did you have to use for this? It’s a great dress!

    When it was a top, I never had in mind to do it, but now as a dress. Really gorgeous!!

    I just tried this technique with a child’s dress – a vintage simplicity wrap PJ top lengthened into a dress. Shown here. Once it was done, I wanted one too — thanks for the tip.

    I really like the fabric you chose. I never thought to turn this pattern into a dress. Worked out nice.
