Autumn from It’s Always Autum shares a free pattern and tutorial for making her Runway Shortie for little girls. This is such a cute little shorts romper! It has contrast cuffs on the legs, a pleated bodice, and a set of snaps at the shoulders to make it easy to put on or take off. The pattern is available in size 12-18 months. (If you need a pattern larger or smaller, you could adjust it using garment that fits your child as a sizing guide.) Go to her pattern and tutorial.
