Lil' Honey Dress & Bloomers Pre-pleated Kit

  • Lil’ Honey is a traditional square yoke smocked dress reimagined in an easy care and comfortable knit for today’s baby girl. With a round neck and a simple snap or button at the back, Lil’ Honey is quick to sew and comfortable to wear. Lil’ Honey may be made with a smocked skirt (View A), or in a gathered skirt, non-smocked version (View B). Lil’ Honey comes in 2 lengths, a shorter length to show off the matching bloomers, or a longer version to wear with tights when the weather is cooler. Lil’ Honey also comes with the choice of a tailored or puff sleeve, both of which may be long or short. The puff sleeve may be finished with smocking or elastic. Lil’ Honey also includes an optional ruffle collar.



  • Coordinating thread, small amount of fusible knit interfacing to stabilize shoulders and button band. Optional notions not included in the kit are: Basting Glue, and paper backed fusible such as Steam a Seam Light in 1/4" or 1/2" size. A piping ruler is a helpful tool to have if adding the optional piping.
