Here's some general ideas for you:

Here's a bunch of free Victorian and Edwardian period patterns:

Scroll to the bottom for the children's clothing (not toddlers or babies, if that's what you're looking for). Of course, these are just line drawings with general measurements. You'll have to draft the patterns and adjust the fit yourself. I think the kilted suit for a girl of 6 years is really cute and period-appropriate for most steampunk purposes (1876).

Here's some more free patterns (there's not many girl's patterns, though):

Here's a few more links with pay-for patterns:
http://www.longago.com/victorianchildren.html
http://www.agelesspatterns.com/girls_1.htm
http://www.patternsoftime.com/products.asp?cat=9&pg=1 (the Victorian ones start a few pages in)

If you're ok with drafting, just looking at fashion plates of young girl's clothing can give you ideas, or even Victorian family portraits. Of course, steampunk is an alternate history, so you can take elements of Victorian fashion to add to more modern clothing.

Der, I totally didn't notice "6 month old" the first time around Tongue

I hope some of those were helpful! From my understanding, most babies wore cute little gowns of various fabrics with embroidery and/or smocking and/or lace trim along the yoke. A matching bonnet is definitely a must! Buuuut, nothing in steampunk says you have to dress age-appropriate according to our modern standards Cheesy If you can make it fit, a mini-version of adult women's wear would be really interesting!

Laughing Moon Mercantile has excellent Victorian patterns, though not for children's sizes. If you feel like steampunking yourself, I highly recommend them.
