More thoughts on what the flower girls should wear

In response to the flower girl post, I received many suggestions to look for Easter dresses, out now. I have started looking.

Marie-Ève thinks that sewing a dress is easier than it sounds. I am tempted by this idea, but I am not sure. I wouldn't ask my mom to take this on, and I'm not sure I'd have the patience to do it (while retaining my sanity).

I found this on the website for The Children's Place. It's cute, too. Slightly less pouffy than I'd had in mind.

Maybe I could sew a tulle overlay on top of the skirt, which would be a merger of most people's suggestions to look for Easter dresses with Marie-Ève's suggestion of sewing a dress.

That is a very cute dress. I remember as a kid that my sister and I used to wear our ballerina tutus made of tule (the longer kind - not short like a traditional tutu) under our Easter dresses. I wonder if this might be an inexpensive option and might be easier than trying to sew a few layers of tulle to the dress.

Tutus! I love them.
This one is $24 USD and comes in lots of colors: http://www.tutuposh.com/product_info.php?products_id=380. You could buy it and take melissa's advice and pair it with a simple dress.

I think that's a great idea!
Tulle is like $5 a yard at Fabricville, and they have tons of colors. And if you want to add a wide ribbon for some kind of a sash, it could potentially cover any seam imperfection/mistake (not that I don't trust you, I just think it's a foolproof insurance policy). Anyway, good luck!
