I have always loved little girls more in blue than in pink. So pretty!

Blus is such a pretty color, and that dress is lovely on your pretty little one.

How beautiful, Melissa. And what beauty they would be framed and lined up in her room. I love the 'beloved' <3

Beautiful. I LOVE the Camille smock plate. I just finished a bishop for a client and am working on another smocked dress that is due in a few days. My little one wants me to smock her a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer dress for Christmas. I wish she would settle for another Camille. It is my favorite.

I smocked when my girls were little. Just lovely and wonderful, beautiful model! Happy Thanksgiving!

There's nothing like a pretty bishop on a sweet little girl. Such a classic style - and what a pretty little face!

She looks like a doll. My daughter was looking at your past blogs and saw a blue smocked princess dress. Do you remember where you ordered it from. She really would like to get one for her 3 year old but is not having luck locating it.

Deborah, Emma was wearing a hand-me-down dress from Mary Ashley from Orient Expressed. They usually have some sweet princess-themed garments, and the fall/winter line should be going on sale soon.
