little miss ladybug




Yes, I am still dreaming of spring and warm sunshine and therefore I am sewing some Spring/Summer clothes for my daughter.

Here is my little miss ladybug dress.

The dress pattern is this one from Oliver + S. I really love Leisl's patterns and the styles she creates. I am already working on another which I hope to have done soon.

Here are some photos of Ms. S modeling the dress.






I made the less bubbly version...still it has a wonderful pouf factor. I used muslin to line it. This will fit her perfectly when the warm weather arrives. I can't wait to see her blowing bubbles wearing this.

This made me sad my "baby" is 16 and sadly, would probably not wear this if I sewed it for her. The yellow made me feel like someday, someday, spring will be here.
