And having a surprisingly hard time! My 3 yo niece needs a new dress, and she likes pink. Her outgrown ones are red and lavender, so it would be a pretty change. Any ideas? There are so many places to look; I've check the obvious ones and really have found nothing. It's hard to google.

Reproduction fabrics has several: http://www.reproductionfabrics.com/lines.php?subcat=120

If none of those tickle your fancy, try giving her a call - she has a special section at the shop with just double pinks.

Thank you for all the help! I'm being very picky, but finally I've narrowed it down to these. Anything glaringly off about them for period? (It doesn't have to be strictly a double pink.)








This is larger scale picture - I think the flowers are thumbnail sized or a little bigger

I think the cinnamon pinks are more accurate than the bubble gum pinks so I would probably skip #2 and #3.

#5 looks a lot like one of the examples in Eileen's book.

I'm with Micaila... skipping #2 and #3 in favor of the others, but there's something about #3 even though it's a bit bubble-gummy. The browned "cinnamon pinks" are nice!
