I used Butterick 4503 and just extended it to make it a dress instead of a top. For me this dress is a little long and I could have gone with 7 ruffles instead of 8.
Here's a view showing the length on her.
If you decide to make the top shown on the pattern cover....add one ruffle. It's waaaay too short! You can't tell from the model, but it's a crop top if you follow the pattern instructions. Eeeee! Some other issues we realized after I passed the dress off to Emily is that two year olds like to pull the ribbon ties out.

This is A LOT late, but here is the dress I made for S. I originally envisioned it with a cardigan, but Em tried it and it was way too bulky.
