    I have made one bubble dress already. My little one is already to big for it. So my question is would it be possible to lengthen the skirt with the bubbles? Also, where would I make the change? Would I need to add another bubble?

    I did this recently and adding length to the view without the scallop was very easy. I needed to add 4 inches to the skirt and 1 inch to the bodice for my daughter. The side scallop/bubble, however, was *very* time-consuming (several hours for me). I had to redraw it (using the original as a guide) to scale while still following the curve of the newly added length. It is possible, but you’ll need to allow yourself plenty of time and tracing paper. (I think it took me three tries to finally get the curve and scallops correctly proportioned.)

    Good luck!
