Fast & Furious Flower Girl Frock
My brother sent me a text last week asking if I could whip up a dress for my niece. She was asked to be a flower girl in his friend's wedding, and he thought that I might create something unique for her. This posed a bit of a challenge since:
A. My niece is in IL, and I am in WY
B. I had to rely on my brother to provide accurate measurements
C. The wedding is on June 6th.
D. I don't have a big fabric store nearby.
Undaunted, I rummaged through my fabric stash to see what I had. I don't keep satin or crepe around (I have no girls of my own), so I knew I would have to settle for an Easter-style dress made from cotton. I was fortunate to find just over a yard of lavender-ish fabric (that was the color that I was instructed to use), but I only had less than half a yard of my preferred contrast material. That sucked a little bit since I wanted to make a little short-sleeved coat to go with this sundress.
