Madelon emailed me this fun find a few weeks ago but I have been so busy I was unable to post it until now. I love the colors in this baby dress that Madelon has re purposed into a doll dress.

The dress has an unusual pleated waist and the darling belt really makes the dress!

 The neon colors are so much fun!

These are adorable fun finds Madelon!
