Free Quilled Flower Girl Dress Pattern

June is the month for weddings so in keeping with that tradition today's pattern is a pretty little girl's dress. Perfect for the flower girl, this pattern is appropriate for your scrapbook page or a card. The possibilities are endless.

To make this cute dress I used white, 1/8 in (.3 cm) wide quilling paper and made the following:

Dress Bodice:
1 - 6 in (15.2 cm) Heart Coil
1 - 4 in (10.2 cm) V-Scroll flattened to give shape to the neckline by following the top of the heart with the scrolls adding sleeves to the dress

Dress - Skirt:
3 - 6 in (15.2 cm) Teardrops
3 - 3 in (7.6 cm) S-scrolls for the bottom of the dress (they add interest and give form to the bottom of the dress)

Arrange the Teardrops so that they touch at the waist-line. I flattened the center teardrop a bit to make the dress keep a more natural curve at the bottom.

The S-Scrolls then run along the bottom of dress.

1 - Green 1.5 in (3.8 cm) C-scroll
7 - Pink 1 in (2.5 cm) Loose coils
2 - Green 2 in (5.1 cm) Teardrop for leaves

For the Bouquet I used 1/16 in (.15 cm) wide paper for a more delicate look and also to keep the piece from becoming too bulky.

Place the C-Scroll at the top of the bouquet
Place 1 - loose coil in the center of the C-scroll (see picture)
Then add a row of 3 loose coils, 2 loose coils and end with 1 loose coil
Add 2 Green leaves to complete the bouquet

Your dress is now ready for that scrapbook page!

If you do not add the bouquet, you can use the same pattern for a communion or christening dress as well.
