Hand Smocked, Hand Embroidered Baby Dress /Size 1 Winter


This is a size 1, one-of-a-kind, baby dress that I have hand smocked & hand embroidered. It has long sleeves, making it perfect for winter wear~ This would be an adorable first-Christmas dress for any little girl. It’s design is a winter scene so it isn’t limited to Christmas wear; it may be worn & enjoyed all winter long. This is a piece of wearable art destined to become an heirloom

Look closely!  What do you think?
Did this sweet little bunny “borrow” the carrot from  the little snowman’s face, or is she bringing the carrot to give the little snowman a nose?  Hmmmm….She looks so sweet to me, but bunnies do get hungry in the winter when their gardehs are buried under snow. The carrot in her hand looks awfully tasty~  Don’t  ask me- You decide~

This size 1 hand smocked & hand embroidered dress is OOAK and very unique.If you look closely you will see that there is a small white leaf print on the white cotton fabric. I’ve done the smocking in white which adds another mode of “white-on-white.” The smocking blends with the background so the stitched design isn’t noticed that much, instead the emphasis is on the interesting patterns the smocking has created in the smocked pleats. A vignette is created in the center of the bodice from my technique of combining embroidery and smocking. This vignette holds a bit of mystery; is the bunny innocent or guilty of taking the carrot?

The sleeves and back button placket have been hand-trimmed in forest-green blanket stitch. A small bunny has been embroidered between the first & second button on the back. A holly leaf and berries are embroidered on each collar.

This dress would make a wonderful “Baby’s First Christmas” dress, and it’s great because while it is a perfect holiday dress, with it’s general theme of winter,  it isn’t limited to Christmas. It can be worn all season!

To complete the outfit,  I’ve included a complimentary matching, hand-embroidered pair of socks!

* Dress measures approx. 16″ from back of neck to bottom of hem
