I purchased a darling fabric fat quarters bundle when I was pregnant.
Playing around with them I had a t first thought to make a little quilt top.
But then I just couldn't resist the ladybugs being a little dress.
I did a little smocking in the center.i was so proud of myself for finding floss that matched so well
then when I was done wished it hadn't matched so well
because you barely see it.
Instead of running it through a pleater I did the dot pleat method on the back of the fabric.
It was such a small area so I thought it wouldn't be too bad.
Made me glad I have my mum's pleater for big jobs though, smile!
In the back I left the skirt open and turned the edges under.
I wanted to ruffle the bum area and be able to see it.
I ran 1 1/2 inch strips through my serger to do a bound rolled edge.
Then I gathered, pinned and sewed them across the bottom.
It turned out pretty cute and my baby looks darling in it!
