Alice in Wonderland - Child’s Outfit Pattern

This adorable little girls pattern includes a one-piece dress and bib with sweet ruffled edges. The bodice is dart-fitted at the front, and the back is finished with a 5 button closing.

Style 1 shows the bib and skirt in a contrasting fabric to the dress, where style 2 matches the dress bodice fabrics to the trim of the skirt, with contrasting fabric for the main skirt.
