'Beloved' Dress - Boho Flower Girl / Special Occasion Dress
The 'Beloved' dress
A lightweight, billowy dress in off white with beautiful lace details - a perfect choice for any family photoshoot or a modern flower girl.
Bodice is lined and is shirred (elastic gathers) in the back for a comfortable, more contoured fit. Dark ivory color (the photos show it as a little lighter, though all monitors vary color) or white.
Made out of light weight cotton gauze fabric and crocheted lace. Skirt has a second lining layer.
Dress Sizing (approximate). Please note that this dress is shirred with elastic thread in the back of the bodice, making it stretchy and very flexible to accommodate different widths. If you’re unsure of what size to buy I recommend going off of the length measurements. If you can, measure the child you’re buying for from the top of the shoulder to where you want the hem to fall then compare to below measurements. First measurement is taking from where the straps rest on the shoulders to the hem. Second measurement is taken from the top of the bodice (at neckline) to hem if you’d like to compare those measurements too.
Size 6-12 months: 17.75" (16.25")
Size 1-2 years: 18.5" (16.75")
Size 2-3 years: 19.75" (17.5")
Size 3-4 years: 21.5" (19.25")
Size 5-6 years: 23.5" (22")

Size 8-9 years: 29" (26")
Chest measurements span quite a bit because of the stretchy back. The width range is;
6-12 months: 17-21”
1-2 years: 18-22”
2-3 years: 19-23”
3-4 years: 20-24”
5-6 years: 21-26”
7-8 years: 23-28”
8-9 years: 24-30”
I had so many requests to offer this dress in white (instead of ivory) to match bridal dresses so I had the trim especially made in white and had to find a different gauze to match. My overall costs for the white variation are higher hence the listing price being higher for that option.
Please note: this is a delicate, special occasion dress. It is made with upmost care and quality materials but the crocheted lace and gauze are fragile materials to be worn and washed with care. Dry cleaning or hand washing recommended.
