Another Springtime Sweater Dress for the Little Darlings

I loved the last sweater dress that I made for the Little Darlings so much that I immediately started on another one.  This one is in pink and also has 10,000+ stitches.

As I was working on the embroidery for this dress I felt as if I were drawing (or painting) with a needle and thread.  The first half of the top motif and the first half of the waistline motif (the second half is mirrored) went bit by bit as I was trying to achieve good color balance and a pleasing floral composition.  Sometimes my motifs take longer to work out and this one did indeed take longer.

The embroidery may have been painstaking, but I am very pleased with the end result.  The motifs are feminine, colorful, balanced and flow smoothly along the waistline, so mission accomplished.
