LVS- Hurray for Fall!

I'm finally able to dig into Avery's stash of long-sleeved vintage dresses!  At least for this week anyway-not sure what the weather will be next week...

This one is a Polly Flinders dress with hand-smocking and hand-embroidering. So sweet!  The sleeves actually ended up being closer to 3/4 length, but that worked perfect for the weather.

She was so nice for me this week!  We got out of the car, and she ran right over to the wall and stood against it for some photos.  This is a first!  Usually I need a helper entertaining her or props or bribes or something!  I hope maybe it's a new trend for her!

 I paired the dress with thrifted brown leggings, some ruffled socks, and cute little shoes (Angel brand).

Check out the other cuties this week at Hart & Sew and Mama Loves Papa!

And don't forget to check back on Friday for our second installment of Lil' Vintage Story Book!

Okay....so I had totally forgotten about those bunny barrettes until now. And now I remember why I was in love with them as a kid.
Totally adorable, as always.

Looking so sweet again this week. I see 'polly flinders' dresses on blogs and etsy and was wondering is this a name for this style of smocked dress or the actual label/brand name
