Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Swimsuit

I was very excited when the Peyton Pretties Swimsuit pattern was released by Mimi's Kids. I really wanted to try it. Today I spent the day doing things with my kids, so I figured I deserved a couple of hours to do something fun. This suit took about 2 hours, but it's hard to judge with interruptions.
I have wanted to embroider "Berry Cute" since I got my machine, but my girls were already too old and I couldn't justify it for a boy. I had this green cotton seersucker left over from swim shorts I made for Andy, so I was trying to find a design that would coordinate. The green on the strawberry picture is accurate. I've always likes strawberries, so I used this one from Britt and added the wording in Embird.
Here's the back. It has elastic at the back and legs. I'm not sure these legs will fit Ella's chubby thighs, but we are getting together tomorrow, so if she's willing to try this on, I will see. The straps you see tie around the neck. It is a super cute pattern!!

Lisa, once again you have come up with a perfect combination of pattern, fabric, trim and embroidery. This is just too, too darling. Now, I'm looking for green seersucker because I want to make one just like this for Vivian Rose.

Thanks, Girls!!
Janice, I got my seersucker awhile ago from Fabric.com. I know they still have it. I wanted to order some turquoise, but decided to use this up first. Also, the pattern is now on etsy:
