Both dresses are made, and will be getting their embellishments tonight! Bought the tshirts today (hard to tell without little arms in them, but they've got cute little gathered cap sleeves).
A few hiccups have come up...
1. That "no dye lot" red yarn? Um, yeah. Big 'ole line across the dress where I started skein #2. It isn't as obvious in person as it is in the pic, but irritating nonetheless.
2. When I mentioned that I was making dresses for her girls and that I was finishing up a ladybug-themed one, friend exclaimed "oh my gosh you remembered! I call them my little ladybug and butterfly!" Well, crap. I didn't know that... BUT, in the spirit of adaptation, the yellow/black dress will be getting butterfly embellishments instead of a bumblebee ;)

Thank you!
I managed to get a few minutes of quiet and sew the butterflies on last night! :)
I've got fifteen ladybugs for the other one, so I probably won't finish up tonight, but hey, a girl can dream, right? Lol

Thanks! I got the butterflies sewn on, but the ladybugs are still unattached. Hopefully I'll at least get them started tonight!

That's what I did :)
The butterfly buttons are all sewn on, and I've got fifteen little ladybugs for the red dress :)

You should get some bumble bee and lady bug buttons to sew on the black band of the dresses.
