this was another one of those easy smocked/shirred one seam dresses. the little stinker wouldn't let me try it on her to see where i needed to hem it. i think i need to wrap her up in duct tape. so it is a little bit long. but i think it makes the dress look classier.
a close-up of the ladybug buttons mallory and i found and loved. mallory's favorite thing to do when i drag her to fabric stores is to play with the buttons.
the ladybug bow her aunt carma made her. and which i and everybody adored.
