NumberPadding on the left

Dear Group,

I have the following code:

PaddedForm[{.1, 1, 11, 111}, {5, 3}, NumberPadding -> {"0", "0"}]

which returns: {000.100, 001.000, 011.000, 0111.000}

Obviously, I do not want the leftmost 0 in case of the last entry 111.
What I want is to have exactly 6 digits, where 3 digits is always on
the right side of the decimal point. I know I can convert all the
entries to string and than pad them from the left, but this does not
tell me why the last number here (111) is padded from the left.
Any suggestion?
