Embroidered Dress for Newborn ~ Brooklynn Dress

A new little dress for a new little girl in our family, Brooklynn.
Again, trying to make a dress small enough for a newborn baby, and am still guessing this will be big.  
One good thing, warm weather is coming and she'll just grow into it?
The ruffles are on the back.

The embroidered font is called Frivolity  and can be found @ Sew Forum
as well as the tiny butterfly
The flower border was discovered via the Sew Forum where I found the EmbroideryRN and her web page and downloaded the 3-flower border.  Since that time, she has moved her files to a page where you can't view them but download them in bulk.  You'll find over 1400 free embroidery files!
I couldn't find the border for you, but I did find the single flower in the archive file 4 which can be downloaded @ https://sites.google.com/site/embroideryrndesignsinc/designs.  Once you download and open the file look for the file named Flower 1ST.  Note:  I use the PES files.
 Instead of a bulky buttonhole, I hand stitched a loop for the button.
Maybe I should do a tutorial for how I hand stitched the loop?  Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks to the FREE programs:

GIMP for cropping & other digital effects
 Photoscape for downsizing & watermarking photo
