The Baby Bug Dress
an adaptation of a design by Kris Richards from Inspirations, issue 31
The baby bug dress is the #1 favourite piece of fun wear among our customers. This darling sundress has a criss-cross back and the straps fasten on the shoulders with 2 large buttons. The rounded hemline is adorned with a deep ruffle and ends with a small bow on the center back. Contrast piping is applied around the entire outline of the garment. A pair of ruffled short panties complete this sweet outfit. This dress can be worn over a simple t-shirt or blouse to extend the wearing season (we've even seen it worn over leggings by the little girl who was our model). Baby Bug can be made in any variety of prints, such as the lady bug print on our model or the butterfly print in the picture gallery or in a solid colour embellished with embroidery and a print for the ruffle.

The straps actually go through a large buttonhole in the back bodice and are knotted and tied, creating the fastening for the dress.

Solid snaps make opening or closing the jacket very simple - no struggling with buttons. Jackets can be adorned with embroidery - in the beige sample to the left, the lion is an embroidered fringe animal (the more you wash and dry the jacket, the fluffier the lion's mane and tail get!) Even the snaps can be adorned - the pink sample in the gallery below has hand-rolled "candies" covering the snaps. The long pants have an elastic waistband and are finished with a ribbing or fabric cuff to match the jacket. The gallery below is a collection of some favourites.
