Madeline, the adventurous French orphan dreamt up by writer/illustrator Ludwig Bemelmans, is known for her blue winter coat, but we can't help but imagine that she would have delighted in wearing this sophisticated three-piece outfit while she searched out fun-and sometimes mischief-around Paris. The sleeveless dress (which doubles as a jumper) and the narrow scarf are worked in a simple garter rib stitch and are finished off with a feminine picot edging in a contrasting color. The coordinating stockinette-stitch cardigan features the same contrasting picot edging. Each of the three pieces can, of course, be mixed and matched with other clothes in a stylish child's wardrobe.
