Just a suggestion, I have a pattern book with a dress in it. The designer mentions using yarn that has elastic in it so that when the person wearing the dress does NOT have a droop in the fanny area after sitting.

I'm going to be a stinker...you may want to make her a dress for her 21st birthday, but does your granddaughter want you to do this? This is a lot of work. Why not make her a lovely shawl with unusual yarn (expensive) she can use for a fancy night out on the town to celebrate her birthday. A dress is usually worn a few times but a shawl can be made to go with so many more outfits and will be seen by more people.

And when in doubt...ask.
