puffed sleeves

“puffed sleeves!”

The first words she said when she put this gown on.

She gasped when she saw it, put it on immediately, and now takes the long way to bed while side glancing down at her gown as she walks, the side of a ruffled hem in one hand. This gown has sparked a surprising amount of imaginative play. She has fought dragons, nearly drowned in a lake of shining waters, danced at a ball as well as on stage, and goes through doors sideways. From the softness and color of the linen, and its perfect little ruffles, to the lovely tissue paper and ribbon it was wrapped in, it is complete loveliness and romance. More than you’d expect, for a three year old.


Jennifer, owner of Lavender Avenue, uses 100% pure, clean, USA made untreated cotton and linen, organic when available. And each gown (she makes pajamas for boys too) is thoughtfully handmade for your child.
