Blue Little Smocked Frock (long-sleeved)English Rose Linens
This sweet, traditional little smocked frock is made from a soft yet robust brushed cotton in tiny blue and white stripes. It is decorated with hand smocking and delicate pink rosebuds. The cosy long sleeves have a generous cuff which is not restricting.
There are matching knickers included to complete the outfit.
It could be worn on cold days with an undergarment and a cardigan, we chose a soft pink bolero. Pink or white tights would be cosy and smart and complete the look.
Traditionally smocked frocks were hand made with a double hem and a wide bodice. They could then be worn for two or more seasons or passed among family members. There is a large hem on the dress for this purpose.
