More of "Natalie"...
With wedding season upon us I thought it would be fun to show you "Natalie" styled in a way that would be perfect for a little girl to wear as a flower girl dress. This time I made the bodice in a different fabric from the skirt to show how this pattern can be modified to create a completely different look. I made the bodice from beautiful white sateen and the skirt from a classic slate grey. The sash is made from ivory sateen and then I added the pale baby pink ribbon roses to add that extra special touch and then for a little unexpected twist I made the made the petticoat underneath out of the same pale pink. Abby insisted that we go all out and she really wanted to look like a flower girl so we got out the good ole glue gun, and old headband and we went to the dollar tree and picked up a few bunches of petite roses in white, ivory and pale pink and we made her a pretty headpiece, but of course her bouquet had to be real flowers. Add mommy's pearls and she was ready to be a flower girl.
