Flower Girl Dress

There was a bit of a flower girl emergency this week. We had a lovely dress that my mom sent to us all ready for Lane to wear. It was made out of a sweet white eyelet like the eyelet I used in my dress. So precious.

But then Lane up and decided to have a growth spurt this past week! ACK! I didn't have the proper stuff to alter the dress, so I whipped up a cute little outfit that is very similar to the one my bridesmaids are wearing.





I think this will probably be better for her anyway. It has pants so that she can crawl around without hurting her knees. And it super light and summery. I love shirring! So much fun!

Here's one last look at the cute dress that she was going to wear though. I love this picture!


Linking this cute little outfit up with these blogs that feature the best of the best in sewing this week:

Welcome to lush friday,thanks for linking up. Typical of children have a badly timed growth spurt, but well done for saving the day. My 7 year old daughter is growing at an enormous rate, every day when she puts her trousers on they seem to be shorter. Andrea

Very cute! Little ones certainly grow fast, don't they?

That's what our children do best...give us surprises that make us stretch our creativity. The dress is beautiful and she is a cutie!

I love shirring too! It is such an easy way to make a dress/top and it makes for a perfect fit everytime. Congrats and good luck at the wedding!
