Welcome Pocahontas!

Pocahontas has been around for a while but she is still rocking it as one of our top sellers. She is sweet and simple and oh so fun to dress up! Just add a little handmade arm band (a wonderful project for you and your little one!), a turquoise necklace, and some imagination, and you’re all set. I just love how strong Pocahontas is, the compassion she shows to those around her, and how she stands up for what she believes in. What a great role model to look up to!

The simplicity of this dress can be found in the “pull over” peasant dress design. The one shoulder, ruffled, neckline resembles Pocahontas’s dress while still giving plenty of coverage. If your little one has slight textile issues, she will LOVE the super soft 100% cottons we’ve specially chosen for this dress. While all of our cottons are designer high quality, we really lucked out when we came across these fabrics! All fabrics are pre-washed in gentle detergents (safe for your little ones) so your dress is ready to wear when it arrives!  

Pocahontas comes in several sizes from 6/12 months all the way to 9/10. The neckline has a ¼” durable and stretchy braided elastic neckline. The extra full skirt has a slightly rounded hemline that is finished off with a light ruffle and the dark brown sash allows you to adjust for a more fitted look. Order it on the longer side and your cherished handmade dress can be enjoyed for years to come!

All our seams are professionally serged. That means they have been finished off and won't fray in the wash. Our very first models are still wearing their goodies from YEARS ago and haven't had any issues with wear and tear.... and they are some rambunctious little kiddos! We highly suggest that you wash your handmade dress in a delicate wash, on cold, and line dry or tumble dry on low. However, if you are in a rush, go ahead and toss it into your regular load of laundry with the rest of your colors and be confident knowing that your dress has been made with every attention to detail in its construction!

Need something to accessorize your dress with? We've got that covered! Stop on over at Ella Bella Boutique and top of your little one's look with her very own turquoise chunky beaded necklace with adorable clay Pocahontas center!

We can't complete our Pocahontas post without introducing you to our super awesome and super sweet photographer, Melissa, from Lissarie Photography! Melissa is amazingly talented and has become such a wonderful friend over the past year! When I originally came to her with the idea for the photoshoot, I had no vision in mind at all. But, Melissa took charge and put it all together… from the handmade teepee and armband to the adorable little raccoon prop, and you can’t forget the sweet simplistic styling on her gorgeous model (who just so happens to be her daughter… can you say AWESOME GENES!? This beautiful little tween is a natural and definitely takes after her momma with that gorgeous face of hers.) I’m not quite sure how I ended up on Melissa’s photography page many months ago, but I am beyond elated that I did! If you’re in the So Cal area and are looking for some stunning photos from someone you are sure to have a fun time with, Melissa is your gal!

Our Pocahontas inspired dress is made by me, Cassandra, using a pattern by Create Kids Couture. *slight modifications made
