Our Favorite Smocked Fall Dresses For Little Girls
Smocked clothing is a year-round occurrence for Southerners—after all, smocking is an art form we hold near and dear to our hearts. I’ll bet that every Southern girl can recall growing up receiving dresses hand-smocked by her mother and can probably still picture her ‘first day of kindergarten’ dress. We really couldn’t think of a more darling way to celebrate the fall season than carrying on the tradition with the cutest fall smocked dresses we could find. Okay, sure—maybe we’re living vicariously through our little ones just a tiny bit when getting them all dressed to the nines, but we’ve got to start ‘em young to develop stylish habits to pass down to their little ones someday. Back-to-school time is the perfect reason to add a few cute pieces to your little girl’s wardrobe, and these oh-so-festive smocked dresses are the perfect picks to celebrate school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and everything in between this fall.
