This review is for the flower girl dress with bolero jacket, style J1419G. For the refined young girl looking for a dress that embodies traditional elegance, this would be a great choice. Made entirely of smooth satin with a soft and subtle sheen, this dress already speaks of sophistication and beauty, nothing less. This flower girl dress is an A-line, ankle length style. The simple bodice is supported with narrow shoulder straps which can be covered with the matching satin bolero. The bolero is meant to just cover the shoulders as it is designed with short sleeves featuring the slightest amount of volume in the cap. The opening of the bolero swoops out to cover the chest, providing a comfortable and beautiful way to cover the shoulders. I wish there was some beading or embroidery on the bolero, but as it is plain, the bolero could even be worn with other dresses!
This flower girl dress features flattering princess seams which extend from the neckline all the way down to the hem on both the front and the back of the dress. The center panel of the dress is decorated with the most intricate and dainty floral embroidery with vines and leaves that swoop and cascade down below the waist. The embroidery is quite exquisite with sparkling beads and miniature pearl accents. The intricacy in the frontal area is balanced by having the rest of the dress remaining clean and simple. To bring a little flair to the back, there is a corset style opening to help better fit the dress. The weaving starts from the top of the dress and extends to the lower back, fastened by a small satin ribbon that can be tied into a bow. I'm glad that there is some corsetry to the back; if it had the usual invisible zipper, I would worry that this dress would be too plain. With the embroidery in the front and the corset closure in the back, this dress is balanced beautifully.
This flower girl dress is available for girls in sizes 4 through 14. A traditionally elegant flower girl dress could only be available in classic colors, and this style was designed in white, ivory, and pink. This minimal yet sophisticated style would be idyllic for a special birthday or any other very important event!
