My older two children take violin lessons. In fact, E has been taking them for almost 5 years! 3 for WD. Their violin teacher is getting married! I am so happy for her, and devastated that she's moving out of state :(.
Anyway, I've known her for a long time, and she has seen me sewing various projects as I wait during lessons, so she asked if I could make the flower girl dress and a couple of boys bow ties for the wedding.
The green is a silk taffeta (I think). I did interface the bow tie, because I didn't want to regret not doing so, but in reality, I'm not sure I needed to. The green silk is pretty stiff on it's own.
A sash of the green was requested, one that went all the way around, so I just extended the side ties pattern. I definitely could have tied a better bow in that picture!
More details: The dress is a size 2. Hard to tell from the pictures, I realized. Perhaps after the wedding in a couple of weeks, I'll have pictures of the flower girl in the dress.
The bow ties were made using the pattern from thismamamakesstuff. I used velcro in the back to attach it after I tied the bow using this tutorial on the web.
