The Flower Girl Dress Is Powerless Over Me!

After months of it watching me cower in the corner, I finally made my move, and have emerged victorious over the Flower Girl Dress. While it thought it would leave me in a huddled mess, I stood up to the challenge of it’s incredible super powers. The Slick Fabric:

The dastardly Invisible Zipper:

The Stiff Fabric Sash:

The Full Lining:

And again:

The Front

I am glad I took the challenge of making this dress. I learned some new techniques, and figured out how to put a lining in a dress when none is called for in the pattern. It was interesting, and fun. I still have some “finger work” left to do, but it is basically finished. I can’t hem it because the Flower Girl lives 250 miles from me, but I hate hemming anyway. We’ll have to wait until June to see a picture of Adayla wearing it. Stefanie and Adam are getting married on June 18. Next, I get to make the Sash For The Bride.

  1. Beautiful! For my son’s wedding, almost 2 years ago, I made four, lined “flower girl” dresses. The hard part was leaving the hemming until the last minute..luckily I did because they all had growth spurts!
