okay, so dd's second birthday is at the end of october, theme is ladybug's picnic, and i happened to have this ladybug dot cord and buttons that i was planning to make into a jumper for her anyway....SO here it is. no pattern, just worked from a couple of dresses/jumpers she has already. she'll have one a white with pink rickrack trimmed shirt under it for the party. i'm trying to decide if it needs something else, a ruffle at the bottom perhaps? can't decide, so y'all help me out here. Smiley i'll post some action shots after the monkey wakes up from her nap...



and i included one of my fancy new ribbon labels, lol! i feel SO fancy...(it's a symbolized version of "love, faith handcrafted designs" (and ignore the loopy serged edges, still working out the kinks on that thing. it is, after all, a relic of the 1980s...and i only started sewing in june, so my skills are limited, lol)



(edited for jacked up first photo...)

LOVE it as is! I personally wouldn't add a ruffle, but that's just my take on it.

Where did u find someone to make your labels? I am looking to get some made, as well.

i got them from mommiemadeit on etsy, she doesn't have any listed right now, but they are great and weren't expensive at all...

Adorable!  I love the ladybugs!  I agree with italia-rican, I don't think it needs anything either.

Very sweet. Jumpers are so versitile, gotta love that. I have to agree that I would leave it with out the ruffle, it's very cute as is. If you still want a little something to make it pop maybe she can wear fun tights under it.
