Rachel Carson Dress Funky Dalmatian with Jammy Dodger Hand Smocking


For little women of Wonder. Named after the grandmother of modern environmentalism and author of ‘Silent Spring’ the book which opened the world’s eyes to nature’s cause,  comes this hand smocked spring time sensation.

The dress is made from acres of glorious scarlet cotton with funky Dalmatian splotches of strawberry, gathered together with a deep garland of zigzag smocking stitches in lustrous red and white threads that run all around the bodice, front and back. The sweeping silhouette is further enhanced by a frill tiered skirt and elegant frill straps adding a playful swing to your spring summer escapades. The dress features an elasticated bodice and fully adjustable buttoned straps for longer wear and a versatile fit across ages.

Our girl's fit is “Classic British” meaning dresses are designed to hit just below the knee. At the beginning of the age range dresses will reach to mid calf; at the upper end of the range they will hit above the knee. 

Due the way our hand smocked pieces are pleated and sewn, our clothes offer a very versatile fit - there is natural stretch in all hand pleated smocks. For this reason we offer fewer, bridge sizes. This means more room for growth and less waste.
