Ladybugs for Abigail

Ladybug ladybug, 
Fly away home!

And this little ladybug dress
will be flying off
to a little girl named Abigail tomorrow.

Aren't these buttons darling?

You see, ladybugs
are a very special thing to many 
little girls and their families.

When we were waiting
for our Ahnalin,
we learned that ladybugs
were a symbol of hope for 
families adopting from China.

like our Ahnalin,
is a precious girl from China.

And I bet she loves to collect 
treasures in her pockets,
just like Ahnalin!

Don't these pockets look like
they will hold many precious goodies?

Abigail's mama ordered this 
dress to be custom made 
especially for her little ladybug.

I am busy sewing pretty dresses right now,
and I still have a few custom spots available!

You can see lots of ideas
and if you would like to order 
a dress that is one-of-a-kind,
custom made by me,
you can email me at

Happy Sewing!

Gorgeous dress! (of course :))
I'm sure she will love it!
Wish I could get away with wearing a dress like that? LOL

As always, you are so talented and offer so much inspiration!

Beautiful dress. I'm envious of those buttonholes - my machine is not making nice ones any more. What machine do you use?????
