I made this one. There wouldn't be any problem lengthening the skirt. You could even add a larger decrease row at the bottom (beginning) of it. I would make sure that the eyelet rows are evenly spaced. The other thing is to measure your victim and keep careful watch over how long you end up making the bodice. Divine Miss Em will be wearing it this winter over a turtleneck. What color are you making? What yarn are you using?

OH SARA it was YOUUUUU!

Im using KP Shine in Apricot.

I added just a few rows, the same number, between each dc row. Should end up just 2 or so ins longer.

I wasnt planning on lengthening the bodice part....or, did you mean to say the pattern itself may make it too long?

The pattern turned out to be a little too long for Em's torso. There's more space under the arms than I really like. She is incredibly slender, though. It may be more her than the pattern, but you might want to measure from the natural waist to the underarm to gauge how long you really want to make the bodice. I love the peach color! I may make one into a dress for Em next summer. The pattern is so easy and those eyelets are really cute!

Oh...Im not too worried, then...Ella is nice and CHUNKY! She was 10 3/4 pounds at BIRTH!

Im just so excited because I can imagine this being a pattern that she can wear for a couple of years...the ribbing makes the top part nice & stretchy, and it might be a dress now and a top later...she can wear it with a Tshirt or turtleneck under it for Spring or Fall, etc etc etc!

These are the things you NEED in a pattern for kids who grow so quickly!

I think it would be really cute over a turtleneck and stretch pants and a pretty pair of Mary Janes.
