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.

The dress has the usual features of pom-pom’s and ties and would look adorable on a newborn baby girl.

I hope you enjoy.

A buttoned opening on the back with three buttons from the neck down to the start of the skirt, this little dress is easy for dressing.

I have made it in autumn colours of woodland greens and browns, but it would look great in pastel colours too.
