When I was 3 or 4 years old, my mom knit me a ladybug vest and skirt. Man, I loved that outfit! Unfortunately, the original was lost in the great hand-me-down beyond. Still to this day though, I appreciate the cuddly kitsch of the ensemble; so much so that I decided to create new version for my own daughter. Enter the My Fair Ladybug set – updated with a micro-mini skirt and an ode-to-the-80s boxy vest. For texture (and fanciness), I used a dimple stitch pattern and knit the pieces up in a pop-y green – the Chartreuse(ish) from my Sheep(ish) yarn line. Lastly, the ladybug touch is added with some simple embroidery. The result, well, is a set of nostalgic knits!
