I made six flower girl dresses for the girls that attended my wedding in July 2011. The dresses are based on the Simplicity 2828 pattern, with some modifications. I customized the sizes and lengths. The pattern only called for lining the bodice, but I also lined the skirt because I was concerned the silk fabric may be scratchy. I then added a layer of tulle between the lining and the shell, so the skirt would have some volume.
The most difficult part of the task was finding a color that would flatter both white and darker skins – i’m very happy with how the dusty pink worked out.
For the ring bearers and ushers, I made silk shantung ties in a slightly darker, but coordinated color.
