Grey Little Smocked Frock (long-sleeved)English Rose Linens
This is a Little Smocked Frock with contemporary appeal! It is made with a brushed cotton in tiny soft grey and white stripes. It is decorated with red rosebuds on the hand smocked bodice and the collar. There are knickers to match included. There are cosy long sleeves which have a loose non restricting cuff.
Red tights would make a festive addition to the outfit. This would make a lovely traditional outfit for a special outing.
Traditionally, smocked frocks were hand made with a double hem and a wide bodice. The hem could be unpicked to make the dress longer. It 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.
