  • Check on ebay for a used Flower girl outfit, or ask your friends who have had a girl be a flower girl...OR how dressy do you dress her for Easter? If it was a super dressy dress use that! Besides you'd get more for your money!

  • Does she have like a princess outfit/costume she wears? Just make adjustments to that.

  • ....hehe...actually, I'd take a night gown and dress it up to be a smart alec...but you could probably find some satiny material at walmart, (a yard and a half should be more than enough for a 3 year old..) grab a pattern and make a dress.

    What do they consider evening wear these days? What I see of girls out in the evening is usually a skirt that's way too short or a halter-top dress..a lot different from the floor length evening gowns of yester year.

  • you could either try to make a dress for her or find a grand parent who may be able to do it. or go to kohls, jc penney, sears, get something like a flower girl dress..a beautiful color would be a navy blue. especially if she has blonde hair. if she brown hair a red dress. if she has red hair a green dress. look online at david's bridal and look at all of the different styles of dresses. shop clearence. you'll be surprised at the deals you can find online on clearance.

  • Garage sale, look for sales in the paper that advertise childrens clothing. Goodwill, just go in and check around at what they have.
