Just bursting with spring time cheer is this smocked bubble decorated with birdhouses. Starting at only $.99 on eBay, this size 12 months Remember Nguyen smocked bubble is a great deal. The the light turquoise bubble is made of tiny gingham quality fabric that is easy to wash. It has four buttons at the back and there are three at the crotch. I love the white Peter Pan collar with the girlie ruffled edging.
This is a Remember Nguyen one piece smocked outfit that is sure to please.

Smocked Pigs Dress
Pigs might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about smocked clothing for children, but you have to admit, these smocked pigs are adorable. This smocked jumper from the Vive La Fete Collection is made of easy-to-care-for polyester/cotton fabric. It is so easy to put on and take off since it buttons at the shoulders. It has a 3 inch hem which can be let out as your child grows. It comes with a white short sleeve blouse with a peter pan collar trimmed with dainty pink ric rac. It has button closures in the back. The jumper can be worn with the white blouse or without. The smocking design on the jumper includes the cutest pink pigs that you can’t help but love!
At the time of this post, this little Vive La Fete jumper is available in several sizes at the Snowbunny Boutique. (See remarks regarding this Children’s Boutique in my recent post featuring a smocked sandcastle bishop dress by Be Mine) Many designs such as this one may be limited, so when they sell, there may not be any more listed for sale.
I am partial to this outfit because I decorated my first child’s nursery with a barnyard theme and pigs were a big part of that. I painted pigs and cows and horses on the baby’s crib and stitched an appliqué pig wall hanging to match the cow, chicken, and lamb wall hangings. We also had also had a wind up plush pig that played music. This little outfit reminds me of those days.
Thanks to Joan at the Snowbunny Boutique for providing her images for this post.

Vintage Smocked Dress Pattern
The dress style on this classic pattern never goes out of style.
Come browse through the vintage smocked sewing patterns as well as recently published smocked dress patterns for babies, toddlers, and girls and boys. You'll be inspired!
Patterns like the one pictured above are rarely available in stores because they are out of print. But because of eBay, vintage patterns that would be gathering dust are recycled when they find a buyer that needs just such a pattern. I see eBay and sites like eBay as great for the environment. Items that would be going to waste are bought and used. Not only that, but so many of the sellers are stay-at-home Moms or family businesses. We can feel good about supporting their efforts.

I found another great smocked boutique shoppe called The Snowbunny Boutique. This smocked bishop Christmas dress is an example of the beautiful smocked dresses that are available in many sizes. This Bow Peep dress has a round yolk with puffed sleeves and is made of bright red poly/cotton fabric, an easy to care for fabric. It is decorated with the cutest snowmen and Christmas tree embroidered on the smocking.
The Snowbunny Boutique carries dozens of dresses, many choices for Christmas right now, but I'm also seeing lovely pastel bishop dresses that make me think of Easter. After Christmas is over, we'll all be craving those pastel and Easter egg colors again.
Most of the shops that I feature on this kid's clothing site are on eBay. I hope you will consider supporting these small businesses that are selling through eBay. Most of these boutique clothing shoppes on eBay are operated by stay-at-home Mammas that need to bring in some income for their families. The Snowbunny Boutique has earned 100% positive feedback from customer service. I am happy to recommend this shop to you.

Brother/Sister Smocked Outfits
Description of the Boy's Longall:
"From Anavini, this adorable outfit was featured in Wooden Soldier catalog. Smocked mouse and candy cane in Christmas stocking motif. Green babywale corduroy longall buttons at bib and sides. Snap crotch. White cotton broadcloth shirt has green and red piped collar. Retails in Wooden Soldier for $89" but sold for $38.99 at Amazing Grace Boutique.
And one more thing...Amazing Grace Boutique carries the lovely Life of Faith 18" dolls. From what I can gather, they compare to the American Girl dolls, but they are less expensive. Not only that, but they are described as dolls with a spiritual history that are poseable and and are a wholesome, modest play doll for young girls. You can also purchase outfits for your 18 inch doll here at Amazing Grace Boutique!

I really enjoy recommending shops on eBay such as this one because they are usually small family-owned American businesses that really appreciate your patronage. They go out of their way to make their customers happy. The sellers are available to you. It is so easy to ask questions through the eBay message system (Contact Seller link). Can you do that on Amazon or other online vendors? If you are not registered on eBay, you may be missing out on some of the best buys and best service available.
