Foxyblue was looking for a flower girl dress for her daughter and she needed it quick!
I offered to make one for her, and after looking at what is available for little girls for weddings, I was shocked!
Most of them look like dresses for sexy 20 something pageant contestants.

We both fell in love with a vogue pattern. Instead of making that dress, I made one that was similar, from my own pattern. And I was very concerned about whether she would like it.

She has told me that she loves it. I am so happy!

I also made a little shrug. The wedding is in Canada, in October. That time of year is hot as blazes here in Arizona. But it's gonna be a bit chilly in Manitoba!

The little girl in the pictures is one of my daughters. She was so sick of fittings by the time I was ready to take the pictures, that I can't blame her for having a sour face.

It's a cute little dress. Add some wings and she's ready for a renaissance festival.Smiley Even though she was tired, I'm glad she's was a good enough sport to wear the dress long enough for pictures.

Nice little dress!  And I think we should give a shout out to the little people we con into modelling for us! I used to pay my son a dollar every time I had him try on a dress I was making for a girl his size. Money and respect for his assistance. LOL
