Lady Bug Dress & Hat

After finishing the Bumble Bee dress, I got a request to do a Lady Bug one. This outfit is for a toddler. The person who requested it is a relatively new crocheter so I wanted to make it easy to follow. I hope I succeeded here. I made it as repetitive as possible while still making it interesting to look at. It mostly consists of dc, sc, or trc. I chose half double crochet for the edging so it would show up nicer. A single crochet would work too. I have a couple of testers trying out the pattern, so hopefully it will be available to the public soon. If you have any ideas for another design, I'd love to hear it! My next thought is a sunflower dress--the bodice could be like the center of the flower (maybe brown with popcorns?) and the skirt could simulate the yellow petals somehow. I will definitely have to think on that one for a while :)
