Please note! 
I've had a lot of people ask if these outfits will fit Bitty Baby.. Yes they will! I use the same size patterns for Lil Kids, Bitty Baby & Gotz Maxy Muffin.
However, not all shoes will fit Bitty, and vice versa. The shoes on this page fit the Lil Kids feet really well. 
Some of the outfits below do include buttons, although the buttons are quite small and securly sewn on by hand, buttons can create a chocking hazard, so please order age approprietly.
