Flower Girl dress frontFlower Girl dress backWhile the wedding of my brother-in-law to his darling was not the wedding I would have chosen for myself, nor did it proceed at the pace I would have chosen, it was perfect for them and they were pleased. In the end, that, and a long and happy life together are what is important.

The flower girl dress turned out quite well if I do say so myself and the fit was perfect. The final formula, size four top and size eight length. I could have gone even longer, but I think it looked fine. The last minute trauma was the realization that one can not seem to purchase a half slip for a little girl. (As an aside, the sales women in the girls department at Sears didn’t even seem to know what a slip was…) So late Friday morning I cut apart an old slip my mother-in-law had and remade it into a slip to go under the dress.

Both kids did a great job during the short, but very hot, service and I was quite impressed with the rent-a-pastor. I was particularly proud of how well Bunny did in the receiving line. Shaking everyone’s hand and looking them in the eye. I guess all that money on Tae Kwon Do has been well spent!

  1. adorable dress. and, yeah, half slips for young girls do not exist in stores. that’s a shame because some dresses really *need* slips. isn’t it great to be a crafty mom who can handle these little issues? šŸ™‚

  2. I can see where the name would appeal to you. šŸ™‚

    The dress came out really cute! No half slips? Not even an awareness of what one was? Odd.
