In 1934, when 2-year-old princess Margaret Rose posed for a portrait with her 6-year-old sister princess Elizabeth, the younger royal wore a dear little smocked dress that was finished at the bottom with what we are calling a double-scalloped hem. Leave it to Janet Gilbert to figure out the hem technique and reproduce the dress design for today’s little princess. She also added an original smocking plate that opens up possibilities for adding more color; smock in a soft hue and make your slip from the same color batiste to shadow through the sheer organdy dress.
