Lazy Daisy All-in-One Baby Dress

So many of you love my All-in-One Baby Top - and have asked over and over for a similar little baby dress

I am delighted to have finally got around to writing this pattern!

0 - 3 months             Lazy Daisy All-in-One Baby Dress               Medium Premature Baby

Tips:
