UGG Boots. Jeggings. And — oh goodness — the sequins. As I search for a perfect holiday outfit for my 18-month-old daughter, I am bombarded by Marilyn Monroe glitz and the kind of va-va-va-voom-ness that, in my humble opinion, belongs far away from a little girl’s wardrobe. This, I hear, is just the tip of the iceberg. From the sound of it, when my baby turns 8, we will be battling over whether she should be allowed to buy French lingerie
So how on earth can one avert such disaster? Simple: focus on what’s good in the fashion world — starting with The Ava Dress, by indie designer SewnNatural. The A-line toddler girls’ dress comes in 24 mos, 2T, 3T, and 4T and is made-to-order; it evokes the uber-playful spirit of the 1960s mod style. Responsibly crafted from Oeko-Tex certified geometric chevron (this means its fabric is water-based, non toxic, and eco friendly), the throwback pinafore is also an investment piece that can grow with your little one for a few years. She can wear it now as a dress, and later as a tunic. It also adapts well from one season to another; pair it with a white turtleneck and patterned tights in the winter, and little else but sandals and a smile in the summer.
Let’s not overlook the vivid and unexpected color of this dress. Anyone who is sick to death of pink will appreciate the teal green and white chevron pattern, and the surprising flash of mustard on the back. The Ava Dress is chic, age-appropriate, and ecologically responsible — just like your baby’s mama.
