Hi bees! Ijust finished a dress for my flower girl, I made the small one first in case I mess up. So before I make the big one for my older Flower Girl I wanted to ask your opinions.
I feel like I should’ve made the brown body part shorter, is it just me or is it too long?
I don’t like the white ribbon for straps so I will get a brown one that is a bit wider. I was also thinking about usingthe same ribbon for waist as a sash. Then maybe put a big flower somewhere arounf the waist?
Now do I keep the top part the same length or should I shorten it some?
ANy other ideas or suggestions you might have are appreciated!

How cute is she and the dress is adorable.
I do like the changes you want to make, I think if you do put a sash with a flower (which I think will finish off the dress) You don’t really need to make the top shorter.
Great job if I was having flower girls I’d certainly ask for a template from you !

@Aelie: Very cute! Did you crochet the top or is it elasticized fabric?
I might make it just an inch or so shorter in the bodice although I think it looks fine as is. Remember if you are going to add a sash, it will cover the waist seam anyhow.

@dressedinlovexo: thank you! I like it but I am biased so I wanted to see if other liked it too or if it was just me.
@julies1949: I did crochet it, I have a huge stash of yarn so I wanted to use it.I might take of 2 top rows and see how it looks. Thats why I wanted to do sash to cover where tied the tulle to the bodice. Thank you for your comment 🙂

@Aelie: The length of the bodice is fine, no need to shorten it. I agree with you on using brown ribbon instead of white (that’s the first thing I noticed). I would also use grosgrain ribbon instead of satin. A sash would be a good addition, maybe with a translucent gold flower.

The bodice on these are a little shorter which I think makes them look more “kiddie” (that’s the best way I could describe it sorry OP)

Very cute! I think the bodice is fine how it is, but it might look a bit cuter if you change the proportions of the dress by shortening it. I’d say try aim to end the crocheted bodice around the belly button or an inch or two above.
I wouldn’t do a sash if you’re shortening the bodice – it will compete with the awesome tulle skirt too much. I would use multiple ribbons in the same colors as the skirt for the straps.
Excited to see your finished product! I’ll be making the flower girl dress for my niece, who will be a little over 2 when we get married. 🙂

Very cute! I would shorten the top just a little bit, then probably add a little sleeve to it instead of the ribbon. I think that would look better since it’s a fall wedding (right now I think it looks cold!). As for adding something for the waist, perhaps you could pin a big sunflower to it the day of the wedding?
