Dress Extension

It sounds like hair extensions and I'm thinking it's the same principle.  My neighbor's daughter is getting baptized on Saturday and asked me to help her with a dress.  The dress that she has is a family heirloom, each girl in their family has worn while they were baptized.
 The dress is fine--except for this little girl--it is too short.  We contemplated adding an eyelet ruffle and then I had an idea pop into my head.  I made a slip with eyelet ruffles on the bottom. 
 This way we wouldn't be touching the dress  with scissors or a sewing machine and the other members of the family who will get to wear it won't have to worry if the dress is too long. 
 This project worked out well.  I had barely any scraps and the sewing went smoothly, can't wait to see it on her.  I think it would be fun to wear this slip with other dresses too.

What a clever idea! You are so smart. I love the inspiration that comes in time of need. It would be fun to see a picture of the dress on the little girl.
