Smocked designs on Easter dresses include smocked Easter Bunnies, smocked Easter Baskets, and smocked flowers like the beautiful green gingham dress shown above. This simple flower design in green and yellow is the perfect compliment to this pastel green bishop dress. Notice the subtle green blue embroidery thread used to outline the pleated area. The color adds just enough complimentary hue to cause the flower design to stand out brightly.
As you can surmise, I think smocking is a beautiful art form. It deserves to have this whole website showing examples of the creativity of smocking art. Smocking designs and practical use has evolved to be especially suitable for children's clothing and comfort.
A dress like this will be perfect for Easter Sunday, but it is also a great dress for any Sunday through the spring and summer months. Smocked Easter dresses can be worn for any special occasion like a birthday party or family portraits, or even a wedding.
The smocked bishop dress is the all time favorite, but dresses with smocked inserts are equally appealing.
