This review is for KD1433B, the so very special occasion baby dress! This adorable style has been translated beautifully to accommodate sizes for babies and toddlers! For babies, sizes small through extra large are available which cover 6 24 months. In toddler sizes, we have the standard 2T, 3T, and 4T. For all sizes in baby and toddler styles, the colors available include pink, white, and ivory. Only the baby sizes include a lovely lilac colored dress. If you're looking for something for your older little girl, there is a similar design available in style JK3012. This style runs in sizes 2 through 16 and features the same sophisticated wrap bodice. The only difference is the skirt, which features a top layer of tulle that opens out. The girls style is available in white, ivory, and a style with a pink bodice and white tulle skirt with pink trim. Overall, this is a dress that would look wonderful on a group of flower girls of different ages.
The bodice of this baby dress is reminiscent of ancient greek fashions; timeless elegance embodied in a wrap style bodice. Construct of a smooth satin with a subtle sheen, the sleeveless bodice incorporates a slight v-shaped neckline and is accented by gentle slopes of satin that crosses the body down to the left of the hip. The last little fold on the bodice mimics the line of a waistband and the focal point is emphasized by an attached floral applique. The flower is constructed of the same satin as the bodice with sheer crystal organza ribbons radiating from the flower. As this floral applique is attached, the flower sits up nicely along the bodice unlike the detachable flower pins which can pull on the fabric or droop. The back of the bodice has a clean, invisible zipper enclosure and an adjustable satin waist sash which can be tied into a bow with long tails.
The skirt for this dress is quite adorable and charming. Three layers of tulle sit on a bed of crisp crinoline giving this dress a little ballerina flair. Each layer of tulle is also firm and crisp, holding volume with light weight ease and even sparkling with a subtle crystal sheen. Every hem is clean finished with bias binding taken from the same fabric of the bodice which gives the skirt a high-quality finish as well as giving the skirt a finish of little waves and cute ruffles. Along the front of the skirt is a delicate spread of satin flowers with pearl centers. Just for babies, the dress is completed with a matching stretch headband.
This is a special occasion baby dress perfect for your baby girl if you're ever been torn between a style that was too mature and sophisticated and one that was too much like a baby princess style. The styles incorporated into this baby dress harmonize between formal elegance and cuteness!
