Posted by Natasha Chrismas on

Welcome to day 1 of Wedding Week here at Peony Patterns! We are excited to bring you a second year of beautiful inspirational makes using our range of patterns, to help you create the special occasion dress of your dreams! 
Each day this week, we'll be sharing some amazing projects sewn up by our talented pattern testing team! Be sure to join our Facebook Group to see even more pictures of your favourite sews this week!

Laura Hilton (Patterns Used: Jasmine and Poppy)

Laura drew inspiration from this fresh soft yellow daisy print from Tulletastic to create a set of flower girl dresses with a modern retro vibe. For her older flower girl she stayed very on trend creating a puff dress look using Peony Patterns Jasmine pattern. Creating Jasmine with see through tulle straps and sleeves, along with a bit of simple ruching on the bodice and a voluminous tulle skirt using white Polytastic tulle from Tulletastic gives this dress an effervescent look. She finished the look with an over size tulle bow made to echo the look of a bridal veil using a long strip of tulle and the tying method from the foxglove bow. 

 For her younger flower girl she went for a very classic look. She used a simple Peony Patterns Poppy bodice with an identical tulle overlay to its sister dress, accented with sweet vintage yellow edging from Farmhouse Fabrics. The full mini length tulle skirt is topped with a sweet sash.


Annie Arana (Pattern Used: Violet)

Annie's inspiration was the understated and elegant lines of modern yet classic flower girl dresses that are not only beautiful, but also comfortable to wear! We love how knit fabrics can also be used for special occasions too!

Annie used an embroidered stretch lace and cotton Lycra from Spotlight Australia and we think this sweet dress ticks all the boxes!

Amber Campbell (Patterns Used: Calliandra, Wisteria & Juniper)

Amber wanted to bring a pop of color and a touch of glam for a non-traditional style flower girl dress. This vibrant dress is not only perfect for a special DIY flower girl dress but perfect for parties, or to be worn after a special event again and again!

To create this masterpiece, Amber used the Calliandra bodice (lining pieces only), Wisteria flutter sleeves, and followed the tulle skirt blog for the Juniper skirt using this incredible pink tulle from Tulletastic. What a simply stunning dress full of glitz and glamour!

 Lindsay Harrell Jones (Patterns Used: Calliandra + Dandelion & Petunia + Calendula)

Lindsay's inspiration for these dresses came from vintage heirloom pieces. Lindsay participates in several "grand millennial" styling groups on Facebook, where couples, especially from the southern United States, are trending towards more traditional blue and white chinoiserie wedding décor. This fabric is perfect for creating dream flower girl dresses that embody elegance and grace.

Lindsay used a combination of patterns to create these two beautiful dresses. She used Calliandra bodice with a modified Dandelion skirt and the Petunia bodice with lengthened skirt and Calendula sleeves. Fabric can be sourced from Hobby Lobby and lace trim can be found at Joann Fabrics. These enchanting dresses will be cherished forever!

Kimberly Seegmiller (Patterns Used: Gardenia + Dandelion + Lily & Doll Gardenia + Doll Wattle + Doll Ivy)

Kimberly had a picture pinned on Pinterest for many years, that has finally came to life in this soft and romantic lace gown. The blush tones of the dress create a timeless yet stunning dress.

Kimberly used our sleeved Gardenia bodice (with the bodice lengthened to dandelion length), and the maxi length dandelion skirt to create this sweet look. She also raised the back neckline of Gardenia to mimic the Lily back. 


This beautiful lace and ribbon are from Hobby Lobby with the silky solid lining fabric purchased from Joann. Kimberly wanted to design 3 mini flower girl doll dresses to match her daughters. She used a combination of Gardenia, Wattle and Ivy to create these petite dresses. What a beautiful collection!

 Kandice Denmark (Pattern Used: Hydrangea)

Kandice envisioned this dress for a darling flower girl in a summer garden wedding! This beautiful dress was destined for lush garden weddings and is the perfect style to give that vintage, DIY wedding look.

Kandice used our Hydrangea pattern with a few slight modifications. She used half the width of the neck ruffle pieces to feature the eyelet trim and for the main skirt she used a double ruffle skirt with Swiss dot and eyelet trim and a simple skirt for the lining. This dress is made with soft buttercream Swiss dot and posh lining fabric both from JoAnn. It is accented with thrifted eyelet trim for the ruffles and cuffs. The perfect dress for a romantic garden wedding!
