In my Google Reader this morning, there was a post from Once Wed on unique flower girl dresses. They posted a sweet little seersucker dress from Ralph Lauren (which sells for $55 at Saks) which had me thinking more about the fabric I will use for Natalie and Teagan’s dresses, as well as the outfits for Steven and Gavin.
I think seersucker will work great for these outfits, and a navy/white seersucker would be perfect!
I really like this deep navy/white stripe from Fabric.com for about $6/yard:
They also have a dark royal/white gingham seersucker for about $8/yard! It’s cute, but not quite what we’re going for. I think I’ll go with the dark navy stripe for both the main parts of the dresses as well as the boys’ shorts. I’ve found some cute white cotton ruffle trim at JoAnn’s for the hems of the dresses, and I think I’ll make a contrasting color sash for each girl – maybe yellow? That was super cute on the inspiration dress! I think a bow in the back would be adorable!
