Well I'm going to stop here although there are so many more I could add, but I'll save them for a second post.

Hope you made it to the end!

*** I'm am going to do a second post for the next round of smocked dresses due to the fact that there are 40 photo's on these one! So if you'd like your Sasha in her smock to be added please send for her addition in Smocked Part TWO!



  1. Well, we are a smocky lot of Sasha mommas! We have more here, so perhaps I do go over-board a little too much for these dresses, especially when you realize how few girly shoes we own to go with them. In my view, this classic look is one of the best for little girls, human or Sasha, when they are going somewhere special.

    I was excited to see a boy with such a lovely top too. My lads are not looking quite so nervous now that they see masculine designs are possible.

    Is dear Hattie still smocked? Myfanwy noticed Tomos, the Gregor next door, giving her covert glances and seems to be warming to the idea of being a girl as a result. Coulld she be a convert or would Hattie view that as going over to the enemy?!

    1. I think there are a lot of smock loving Momma's out there!! :) and I agree they look good on all little girls human and doll.
      Yes Hattie is still smocked ! and I am going to try and at a few more photo's!! Well Hattie likes dress especially the Helena BC kind, so I don't think she'd think ill of Myfanwy not unless she starts giggle when she see Tomos!!

  2. I am really enjoying the smocked outfits Dee!!! I did not say dresses because of Finn :). Both Finn and Kendal are wearing smocked creations by Millie Dingham. Ellen 's photos are so wonderful and I love looking at her beautiful Sashas. Your last photo is beautiful and I love those soft pastel colors on your girls. Really just a great post with each photo bringing a special delight :) xxxx

    1. Thank you Ginger and thank Finn for being 'man' enough to show us his Millie Dingham top!
      It so lovely seeing all the different Sasha's and Gregors belonging to everyone is these wonderful creations by these talented people.
      There are so many I will have to do smocked part two!! :)xxxx

  3. Oh my goodness, what BEAUTIFUL photos of these lovely girls (and boys!) in their smocked outfits. I love smocking and have had a couple of attempts at it, but none in Sasha size. I would like to have the time to have another go at it but it'll have to wait for now!! I do love seeing all these other lovely outfits though, they're really gorgeous and I can hardly wait for the second installment of the smocking photos.
    Big hugs Sharon xxx

    1. Hi Sharon, they are gorgeous these smocked dresses and top on these wonderful Sasha's and Gregor. It amazes me all the attention to detail and hard work that goes into these clothes.

      hugs Dee xx

  4. Wow - such beautiful dresses and so many talented ladies - I've a lot to learn!

    1. It least you have made a start, I'm still at the I must have a go at that.....sometime stage... :)

  5. Hi Dee...Internet has been down today. The post was worth the wait. Beautiful kids, beautiful clothes. Amazing, just amazing! All of the clothing is different and unique in its own way. Have never seen such a range of smocked clothing. All of the smocking has such attention to detail. So well presented. Think that I will be taking another look. Many thanks...Carol

    1. I Know! Where do they find all the patterns and time to craft such gorgeous dresses! These dresses do make the Sasha's look so smart and sweet!
      Always worth another look! :)

  6. Well Dee,

    You have started something here with these smocked dresses! I have really enjoyed seeing the wonderful variety of smocked dresses on your blog. It is amazing how varied and exquisite they all are. The imagination and creativity of each smocking artist leaves me in awe. Is it any wonder that we love these dresses. I think they bring out the beauty of a doll that might not be noticed otherwise.
