Could you explain "She had buttons all down the side of her dress" in detail?
I tried to understand it through several dictionaries . but I couldn't yet get it.
Help me please....Thank you.

hi reach - in this context it means that she had buttons all the way down the side
of her dress. in other words, down the full length of her dress.

This statement describes the buttons on the dress. There is a row of buttons that are located on the side of the dress and run from the top to the bottom. This would be a large number of buttons. Imagine the side of the dress having 50 buttons on it.
I love being an Online ESL Tutor! It is always fun and interesting!
