This dress used to belong to my grandma. It was a size 22 and quite long. I made it size Jess by taking it in and up. Hopefully not so far as to prompt my grandma to say, "It's like a fence-- it protects the property but sure doesn't obstruct the view!"

Your dress is very adorable and I think I may need to steal that phrase in the future!
