Woodland Baby Dress

Woodland baby dress, a sweet little dress made in worsted weight yarn to fit a
newborn baby girl, it will look lovely on it’s own or as it is an addition to my woodland
collection it can be paired with the matching coat pattern or you could crochet
the beanie hat and booties to complete the outfit, it has the usual features
of pom-pom’s and ties. I hope you enjoy.
