and add some applique flowers and buttons:
The flowers were from an old pillowcase which I had already cut up to make this reversible tulip hat (the other side is made out of an old sheet), the buttons were in a button box received through Freecycle and the dress was kindly given by a friend whose little girl had outgrown it (minus the stain of course that is all my little girl's doing!).
I had planned on embroidering some stems and then putting a ribbon bow arould them but once I had them on and added a running stitch around the bodice line I thought enough was enough.
And one very reluctant model!
