Flower Girl Dress by Amy, Amelia Studio

Amy writes, “I made this dress for my daughter, who was the flower girl in my sister’s 2008 wedding. The pattern is Simplicity 4246. The solid is a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton (Bittersweet) and the floral is Amy Butler. My gal is tall and thin, so I used a size 2 for the width and 4 for the length. I modified the back a little. It wasn’t supposed to have the back tie, just a band. The shot cotton worked really well with all of the gathering on this dress. This thing has major volume– a good dancing dress for sure.”
