Charlotte in the Emma Dress

 

Charlotte loved the Rockabilly Baby Emma Dress!  Sized according to age, three year old Charlotte took a ¾ and the fit was perfect! The Emma is an easy-to-fit cut that’s perfect for your little one (no buttons, no zips- just slip it over the head and adjust the tie straps), this dress offers plenty of room to grow and to style. With sweet socks and tennis shoes in the summer and leggings or tights in the fall, this style will grow with your little one and be a favorite for seasons to come!
