Default tutu dress for a 8 year old.

Hi ladies,
I just got a request to make a flower girl dress for an 8 year old year. I have not made a dress that fits that size yet,would the crochet top fit an 8 year old?

I would be making this dress again to fit an 8 year old girl,would I make it the same way just more tulle?

thank you

It would depend on how the person wants the dress, long, 3/4 or short etc
I think you may have to measure the child to find out of the crochet top will fit.
I've made tutu dresses before but only for younger girls (3/4yrs)

Go for the 8" crochet tops at that age... But definitely measure first. The 6" will likely be too tight unless the child is extremely skinny -- and even then, it will stretch too much and show too much skin underneath.

The other option is to make an empire waist - you can do that for any size since it's on elastic... There's a great tutorial floating around youtube for an empire waist... pm me and I'll see if I can track it down if you have any problems finding it.

I don't know if you like to sew or not but I am not a big fan of the crochet tops, so instead I make the a line tops. I usually just make it and sew the tulle in between the 2 strips of fabric. For the backing, I just make it a button up dress and so the whole dress pretty much "opens" up and you just wrapped it on the little girl. I am probably making no sense but I will post a picture and hopefully you can see what I mean ok, I have no idea how to post a picture so I will post a link to my facebook page of the dress

It is the first dress you open up to.

Thanks Ladies

I am going to sewing an 8 inch crochet top,folded in half and sewn together so that it is full coverage and use a ton of tulle for the bottom,like a ball gown effect I am really excited about making this dress

I have noticed ever since I listed the flower girl tutu dress my views have gone up alot,so I guess the flower girl tutu dresses might be the way to go
