Where there are children, there is a flurry of activity to prepare for going back to school. We are all stocking up on school supplies while the price is right. But more than school supplies must be purchased. Most children have need of new clothes for the coming school year.
There are many adorable smocked dresses for girls and smocked outfits for boys that are designed around the back to school theme like this little round yolk dress that sold yesterday through the auctions. This particular dress is designed by Silly Goose and it sold for only $15.50. This auction even included the bow for no extra charge!
The dress is black/white gingham with two sets of letters, apples, and an apple tree smocked on the yolk.

Since I have raised four little boys I still am partial to designs like this smocked cowboy insert. I can just picture how cute my little boys would have looked in this smocked cowboy outfit.
This is a smocked Be Mine jon jon or shortall made of orange gingham. The smocking shows a little cowboy with his lasso twirling and with his frisky horse. Comes with matching shirt with orange gingham collar. This is one of the many items listed on ebay this week.
Smocking is such an artform and almost any child's hobby or interest can be found in a smocking design if you search a bit.
Tractors and trucks were big pleasers for my boys and they are easy to find in smocking designs. But you can find smocked outfits with designs for golf, football, ballet, biking, dogs, and on and on.
