Any advice for how to alter the pattern to make the shrug longer, so that it ties at the waist?  Making the sleeves a little longer seems easy, but I'm not sure how to lengthen the body.

Here's a suggestion:  Complete the shrug as the patterns tells you to up to stitching the side and arm seams.  Then, take a page from the Short and Sweet Bolero and attach the yarn at the beginning of the front left side, chain 4 and then follow the pattern that you have already set.  When you get to the end of the first row, just turn the fabric so that you are now doing your second row.  Just add on to the bottom until it is as long as you want it to be, then, do your finishing (i.e. waistband, ties, and front edging).  Does that help?

I love this pattern and I was thinking of making one for myself that was longer.

My thought was just to crochet more rows before the sleeve shaping and then add the same number or added on rows to the fronts.

I am not using the tie though.
