Do you like discovering new places to buy well-made clothing for your little girl for affordable prices?  How about buying from and supporting fellow moms?

Then don’t miss this fabulous Etsy feature!

Feast your eyes on this…

This delicious dress is a Strawberry Sizzle Knot Dress!

Where can it be found, you might ask?  Why, at Sophie Lynn – a boutique that you’ll love once you see all of the twirl-inspiring dresses and skirts for girls.  I’m especially fond of the knot dresses.

And the prices are just as sweet as the inventory!

Some of the lovely creations at Sophie Lynn…

I love that some of the designs are more modern and some are vintage like the dress below.

About Sophie Lynn

I think she says it best in her profile page on Etsy:

Hi, I’m Sara, a small town Christian girl. I’m married with two young children, and we all live happily in a tiny village of about 500 people. I pride myself in selling lovely, quality clothing – designs that parents will love to buy, and girls will love to wear.

All clothing has to pass the test of the two little princesses in my house!  It has to be pretty and fancy, but also must stand up to running away from dragons! As I sew, I sometimes imagine the little girl who will wear it twirling and dancing as little girls are wont to do. I put a lot of effort into each and every item I sew; I suppose it comes from the memory of sitting in front of a 4H judge scrutinizing my seams. You won’t be disappointed!

Thanks to Sara at Sophie Lynn, I was able to “princess-test” one of her Strawberry Sizzle Knot Dresses in size 2T.


A Mom’s Thoughts

This dress is definitely one of those that inspires twirls.  :)  First, the fabric combination is absolutely gorgeous. Check out the material close-up:

Don’t you love it?  It’s like Strawberry Shortcake gone glam!

Dress Arrival and Condition:

I received the dress very quickly.  It arrived protected in a waterproof bag within the package.  The dress was folded neatly with the knot at the neckline arranged in a perfect bow.  All ready to be donned and twirl-tested by my two-year-old!

Sizing

This is a size 2T.  Now all dresses are a little different in sizing – if you buy online for your kids, you know that sizing is always a little different for each company.  This dress ended up being a tiny bit big for Emma, and I was actually very pleased with this because I hate to receive a dress that I know she’ll grow out of in a couple months!  The awesome thing about this dress is that the shoulder straps can be adjusted so that the dress fits right around the shoulders.  You just untie the bow and tighten, then re-tie.

I couldn’t be more happy with the sizing and ability to adjust this dress.  I believe it will look good on any little girl!  It makes me want to collect all of Sophie Lynn’s knot dresses.  :)

Design and Comfort

If you know two-year-olds, you know they’re fussy.  From the beginning, there were certain dresses I would put on my little girl and she would SCREAM until I took it off.  Thereafter, I determined to be more careful what I bought. Thankfully, Emma had no problems with this dress – in fact, a smile graced her face after I put it on her!  Success!

I wasn’t sure how Emma would do with the bow at first… would she persist in untying it 20 times a day, making me crazed and frustrated?  ;-)  Nope, she was quickly distracted by the beauteous fabric and amount of twirlable material.  What followed?  Twirls, of course!

I am very pleased with the design of the Strawberry Sizzle Knot Dress.  For one, it is completely adjustable – I can see that Emma will have room to grow in this dress, and that makes me very happy!  There’s nothing more saddening that seeing your little one grow out of a favorite dress.  Although it’s bound to happen someday, we have at least a year in this one!  I love that.

The material is soft, and no matter how the bow is tied it looks great!

Final Thoughts

We received a lot of compliments on this dress – it’s just one of those that you can’t help but love at first sight!  This is one of our favorites in Emma’s closet.  Sophie Lynn has found another faithful customer here – I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend shopping at this boutique!
