|Pretty in Pink|
I found that dressing Miss 5BN in her featherwale cord dresses, I was ensured she stayed so much warmer than if I had her in pants and jumpers.
The lined bodice of the dress added another layer, the warm stockings pulled up to Harry High Pants height --added another warming layer as well. No bare midriff or mutton top was ever visible in the midst of winter on little Miss 5BN.
Button through singlets/ onesies were wonderful --until the toilet training began, and then singlets made an appearance on our children.
|Self covered buttons add detail to this smocked dress.|
Below are some photos of Miss 5BN in her warm winter dresses; or some of her well worn warm winter dresses!

No bare midriffs for Miss 5BN in this household!
