    It’s too cute! You did a great job. Neck binding on a stretch fabric can give you problems, but doing it flat helps, like only sewing one shoulder seam and then applying the binding before sewing up the other shoulder seam. I had to do some practice runs before getting it right. I love the applique! It is darling!
