Smocked Dresses

Our girls’s smocked dresses are entirely embroidered by hand.

Historically, ’smock’ was a traditional garment from the 19th century worn by English peasants, including boys. It is characterised by tight pleats on the front (and on the back), and embroidery. ’Smock is now a speciality of the embroideresses of the island of Madagascar.

Their craft was introduced by English missionaries. Each dress is unique as it is embroidered by hand. Our fabrics are 100% cotton and are carefully selected so as to offer a wide range of choice (patterns include flowers, Vichy, spots, plain, etc)

Smocking dresses are now affordable for everyone, and are no longer the priviledge of children of royal families.

Beside the conventional well-behaved type, we also make dresses from brightly coloured fabric that are just as classy.

Both romantic and multicultural, these dresses are elegant in all circumstances.
