Just a thought…could you possibly do something with Impressions bridesmaid’s seperates collection for the JR bridesmaid?

Hm, I see what you mean about the available styles. Is there a complementary color you could choose for your Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man, and then hit up a store/website looking for that color in a better style? I would worry about an adult dress not looking right on a 9-year-old.

I like your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but I agree that the two junior Bridesmaid or Best Man choices aren’t great. Here’s my suggestion: Order a sash (or extra fabric to make a sash) from Impression in fabric to match your BMs, then buy a prettier, more appropriate dress for your junior Bridesmaid or Best Man in a complementary colour from another company and use the sash to make it coordinate with the BMs. That way, everybody matches, but everybody gets a pretty dress, too!

My youngest sister is 16 and even at that age, I’m having a hard time finding a bridesmaid dress for her that doesn’t make her look like she’s playing dress up, so I definitely understand the need for something age appropriate. Could you take one of the simpler dresses and order some extra fabric to have a seamstress create an overlay that would mimic the pleating/ruching of the bridesmaid dresses while still maintaining the younger look?
