Flower Girl Dress Ideas
Updated: Jun 5
If you’ve been asked to dress a lucky girl for a wedding, we are here to help you design the perfect flower girl dress. First things first, you need to discuss with the bride what she desires for her smallest attendants to wear. Chances are if the bride asked you to make the dress, she is looking for a classic design. Talk with her about pieces of this “dress puzzle.” Ask questions about the type of fabric, sleeve style, bodice length, and style for the skirt. Once you've gathered the specifics, take a deep breath, and look no farther than our Victoria pattern. Use this pattern as the building block to make a dress the bride will love seeing in her wedding party.
If the bride prefers an heirloom style, consider something similar to this Victoria. We used pink satin batiste but it comes in white or ecru. We paired this beauty with stunning English netting to make a delicate and unforgettable ruffle collar. See how we used Victoria to make this dress on our blog.
Raised Waistline with Silk Organza
For the quintessential flower girl dress, we used silk organza and raised the waist for this sleeveless version of Victoria. Depending on what the bride envisions, use the sash as an opportunity to add color to her dress. We made the same dress with two different sash variations. See below an example with a sash from the same silk organza as the dress, and the same dress with a sash made from blush colored satin batiste. Both sashes are expertly “attached” with a crocheted button loops. See a short cut on how to make these quickly by machine. Make sash from any fabric to truly show the personality of the bride and her wedding day.
Raising the waistline for the dress may be just the classic touch you need. See how we made the raised waistline variation here.
Skirt with Crinoline
A teacup silhouette is both classic and dainty. This style can be achieved by adding crinoline to the lining of the Victoria pattern. See how we made this variation here.
