Fall Leaves Smocked Dress
This fall leaves smocked dress is so sweet and fun! It will be precious on every little girl. It is the only one like it as it was handmade by S’leeney’s. No other girl will have this one!
This dress is a chocolate brown gingham print material with cream smocking and fall-colored leaves around the neck and the sleeves. The cream smocking is a zig-zag pattern and goes around the entire neckline. Towards the bottom of the zig-zag pattern, there are fall leaves. The leaves are pumpkin orange, golden yellow, and red accented with chocolate brown veins. The sleeves are smocked around the arm with a small zig-zag pattern and orange, yellow, and red accents. The sleeves are trimmed with white lace. There are two pearlized white buttons in the back.

Fall Leaves Smocked Dress Care:
We suggest washing this fall leaves smocked dress by hand in cold water. Gently spot clean any smocked areas as scrubbing the smocking may flatten it. Lay the dress flat to air dry. Gently iron the dress while steaming the smocking. Do not press down on the smocked areas as this will flatten the smocking.
Size: 18 months.
The neck is 10.5″ around (buttoned). The arms are 7.5″ around naturally, not stretched (measured at the smocking). The length is 21″ from the center of the front neck down. There is a double hem that you can let out once more length is needed. The second hem is 1″ long. To let out the double hem, simply cut (carefully!) the thread with scissors. You may need to wash the dress and will definitely need to iron it to get the crease out from this hem. Doing this is great because it will add another season, maybe two, of wear as the girl grows in height.
