Nothing ignites the imagination like sitting atop a fine wooden horse while it glides through air thick with fairground music and the smell of candyfloss. A sky blue, transitional twist on the bestselling Horse Carousel dress, the Merry-Go-Round dress will evoke the warm fuzzy feeling of the fairground, both in little wearers and big admirers.
The fine-ribbed piqué cotton helps hold the structure of the delicate puffed cap sleeves and full flared skirt, creating a timeless silhouette. The traditional hand smocking and delicate embroidery feature an intricate horse carousel scene complemented by a white, piped peter pan collar, also in piqué cotton.
Our dresses are lined in cotton to create a perfect flare for twirling and dancing like everybody’s watching. The Merry-Go-Round has fabric covered buttons that fasten at the back and an attached sash tie at the waist (12 months+), which is a good test for the best bow-tier in the family. Sizes up to and including 2 years come with matching nappy covers.

All our dresses are fully lined and come up true to size. We therefore recommend purchasing the exact age of the child and, if in between sizes, the next size up. For rompers, we recommend purchasing the next size up. For details, please see our size guide in the picture.
Our clothes are designed for children to explore and have fun in! All our items can be machine washed on a delicate cycle at 30°C, ideally inside out to protect the smocking and embroidery. Alternatively you can hand wash them, but please do not soak, bleach, rub or wring the item. We recommend line drying, and not using a tumble dryer.
For our silk dresses, we recommend dry cleaning. Please note that these consist of 100% raw silk, and that slight imperfections may occur as it is a natural fabric.
Please note that most of our items are smocked and embroidered by hand, and therefore slight variations in the exact design can occur. We are proud of our skilled craftspeople and to be a brand that values the beautiful traditional craft of smocking and embroidery.
