    I’ve made the version B of the music box jumper and want to make the version A with some modifications but I’m not sure what I need to do. my girl is 6 and likes dresses with more shape – less tent. I noticed some of the older girls wearing the dress on flickr are wearing belts to slim the dress. that’s the look I what I want but without a belt. would adding 4″ to the bodice of a size 7 look weird? maybe more? my girl has a long and narrow torso. should I taper the sides? any suggestions appreciated 🙂

    I think that would work nicely. I like your suggestion of tapering the sides of the bodice-just a little. The bodice has a slight A-line(from memory)so if you continue the length I agree that straightening the bodice side rather then continuing the A-line will give you a sleeker version.

    My 12 year old loves her pleated version.
