Stop The Smocking Madness

    I am an avowed anti Smocking person. My girls only wore a smocked dress if it was given as a gift. I realize that as a proud southerner it is de rigeur dressing but I rebel in favor of utilitarian comfort based baby dressing. Even my husband knocked my penchant for the onesie clad baby. Perhaps I am selfish and am living out my desire to clad myself entirely in soft brushed cotton...I digress, my point is that john johns and bishop style smocked dresses are great, f you are so inclined but please if your son's testicles have dropped and your daughter has breasts it is time to give up the ghost.

      Aw.........but smocked dresses are so cute on little girls.
      And hey, smocking on a blouse works well (depending on the design) for camouflaging a middle-aged woman's (like me) midriff sometimes.   But I agree that it's hard to make smocking on a skirt/dress look good....on almost any adult.....
