|On my sister's wise advice, I added some black dots on the wings. I think they really do make it look much better|
|Ladybug size was based on a saucer from the holiday unit where we were staying at Easter!|
|And modelled by the happy recipient. With this length, it should be okay for quite a few months!|
The fabric came from Spotlight - I used a yellow soda denim (which has a small amount of stretch) and then a few quilting scraps to make the applique. The dress itself sewed up very quickly, but the applique took me a few hours to do.
I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out.
