Hand smocked and hand embroidered, this size 1, cotton dress is unique and one-of-a-kind. Designed and stitched completely by me, this heirloom-quality wearable art dress is one that she will love to wear over and over.  I’ve hand-smocked the bodice of the dress in a subtle white diamond-shaped design which beautifully frames the hand embroidered scene centered on it. The scene, which I compose freehand as I stitch,  begins a little vignette that may “spark” your child’s imagination. In this scene a little duckling stands in a meadow of tall grasses and flowers, having a conversation with a ladybug. What could they be talking about? This begins a story that could take off in many directions. She will enjoy thinking about it when she wears her dress!

The collar has a small embroidered rose on it to match the roses in the print of the fabric. The sleeve ruffles have been hand-trimmed in white blanket stitch, as has the back edge of the button placket. Flowers have also been hand embroidered between the first and second button & the second and third button.

I’ve developed my own technique of combining smocking and embroidery to produce this very special baby dress.  It would make an excellent new baby gift, first birthday gift, Valentine’s Day or Easter dress~ or simply a  “just because I love you,” dress. This dress with it’s cute little duckling,  is one to be cherished.

To complete the outfit, a complimentary matching hand embroidered pair of socks are included with this dress purchase~IMG_8933* Dress measures approx. 16″from back of neck to bottom of hem
