Colorful Girls' Spring Dresses
Even a newborn baby girl would look beautiful in a colorful spring dress. When looking for a warm-weather dress for a baby, look for something that would make her comfortable, like an outfit made with a lightweight fabric. Choose a crinoline to make the dress full, or go with a sundress type style for a more casual look. Roses or other flowers make a classic statement that will make your pictures beautiful for years to come. Stripes or polka dots are also traditional patterns that will stay classy forever. Your dress can be fun enough for relaxing family events, such as picnics, or it could be fancy for special occasions, like a wedding or graduation.
Floral Dresses Work, Too
Your daughter, granddaughter, or niece will shine in a perky dress that features any type of flower. Clothing that is adorned with floral patterns always transcends time, since nature lasts forever. Choose a fabric that will suit the weather for your event. If it's cooler outside, add a hat and a lightweight sweater. For warmer weather, a lightweight shawl is more than enough. Add a some cute hair clips or a sweet hat to set off the outfit, and add some pretty shoes to add more style. Your daughter's spring dress will be picture perfect!
Traditional and Elegant
If you prefer a more traditional and elegant style, perhaps you would prefer a solid color satin lined dress with a stylish hat or bonnet. An elegant spring dress will make any baby girl look like a princess. Choose a stylish regular waistline, accented with a waistband with a belt such as a simple slim ribbon waistband. A sleeveless style is comfortable and suitable for the weather, and would be an excellent style for a baby portrait.
This pretty party dress is the perfect selection for your daughter's closet. Make your family portrait special by dressing your daughter in this cheeful white outfit, highlighted with a variety of colorful polka dots and a perky gingham waistband.

Delicate Princess Dresses
If your little girl has always dreamed of being a princess, then this is the dress for her. This stunning little gown reminds me of a Disney Princess dress, created in a dreamy pink and decorated with gold ribbon, a stand-up color, and fancy decoration below the waist. The gold accents and shimmery waistband only highlight the delicate fabric, and the elegant headband looks comfortable yet pretty too. Your daughter will look simply beautiful.
Follow Her Lead
If your daughter is old enough to voice her opinion, then ask her for it. Trust me, I have plenty of experience in this department. If your child absolutely despises the clothes that you buy for her, it does not matter how much you like them. If you buy them and make her wear them, these beautiful pieces will somehow get "damaged" or "forgotten" or "misplaced." If you don't remind her to wear them, they will get shoved to the back of the closet or under the bed.
In other words, don't waste your money on clothes that your child hates. It will be a waste of money because they will not get worn and you will end up donating clothes that have tags on them. Or maybe you will sell them on eBay, but it's still more time and trouble than not buying them in the first place.
Save yourself the money and frustration by asking her opinion. A nice little trick is to set up a choice of two or three pieces that you like. Let her choose her favorite. Then set up another group and let her make a selection. Keep working the processes, ensuring that you like all of the products that appear in the line up. However, since she gets to rule out her least favorite pieces, she does have an opportunity to have a voice. This is how you get to share in the selection process and she will actually wear clothes that you like too.
Disclaimer: Once she hits 12 or 13 years old, none of these rules will work. As they say at the school board building, "Sorry, can't help you!"

Tips for Ordering Dresses Online
When ordering dresses online, it's always a good idea to make sure the outfit will fit before you actually order the outfit. Before I order clothing for my family, I always take their complete measurements and compare them to the company's sizing charts. This way, you can make sure that you won't be disappointed when you receive the product.
A button for the size chart is usually located on the same page as the dress. Usually, when you press the button, the new page will open in a new window. But to make sure it is, use your mouse to right-click on the button, then choose "open link in new tab." This way, you will not lose the first window---we both know how hard it is to find it again!
The size chart will list the sizes and the measurements. Have your child stand as straight and tall as they can, and use a sewing tape measure to write down the numbers. When in doubt, round up.
Find the correct size on the chart, and now you know what you should order.
Before making your online order, double check the store's return policy. Many stores now have convenient online return policies, especially if you are dealing with Amazon. However, be careful. Make sure you are dealing with the actual online store itself, and not a seller who is selling from an online auction on Amazon. Don't get me wrong.... there is nothing wrong with ordering from a seller on Amazon's online auctions. I have successfully ordered from them many times. However, the seller's on the auctions may have a completely different return policy than the store itself.
