The top portion of the dress is crocheted. That material is stretchy, to allow comfort/give. I've added a sweet fuchsia flower on the bust. The bottom of the dress is created from tulle, which has no additional fabric (under the tulle). The dress can not be returned. The smaller dresses (shorter tulle) do not have a ribbon to tie around the neck; however, I can add one. The dresses fit newborn to approximately 2T. The length of the tulle on the shorter dresses is measured at approximately one foot, while the longer tulle is approximately seventeen inches long (this is not in addition to the length of the crocheted portion - which is about five inches). This is the shorter version. This also includes the floral headband.
