Upscale Pup carries some of the most gorgeous hand smocked dog dresses I have ever seen. For those of you unfamiliar with the art of hand smocking, it is an old needle art sewing craft that creates a treasured heirloom keepsake garment. It takes time, patience, know-how, and lots of practice to create one of these elegant designs, which is why it is considered to be an heirloom treasure, once complete.
The Mariposa Hand Smocked Dress is truly special, as the hand smocking detail also features beautiful embroidery, sequins, and beading. I love this dress so much that my little Maltese, Daisy, wore the pink version of this dress at our church wedding. She looked so exquisite that she almost stole the show from the bride (she was our tiny ring bearer)! The pink of the Mariposa Dress matched the delicate pink colors of the roses in the bridal bouquet and were absolutely beautiful together.
Speaking of weddings, the Peppermint Pixie Hand-Smocked Dress is also special enough for a wedding. This mint-striped cotton seersucker hand-smocked dress is so luscious and luxurious; you are likely to get a toothache from how sweet it will make your pup look! The compliments will truly be overflowing when wearing this prized possession.
The Lucy Hand Smocked Haute Couture Dress is also a real head-turner, showcasing hand-embroidered pin-tuck sparkles with hand-sewn sequins. Plaid is always in style and this dress is no exception.
The Duckie Hand-Smocked Bishop Dress offers a cute, whimsical touch with darling ducks embroidered into the neck area of the dress and touched off with hand-sewn sequins for extra special sparkle.
Last and certainly not least, I must tell you about the Watermelon Hand-Smocked Sun Dress, which has to be one of the most delightful designs we have seen in a long time. This precious little number showcases hand-embroidered red watermelons with hand-sewn beaded “seeds.” Think about how eye-catching your little pup will look when wearing this charming creation to your next party or picnic.
The level of handwork (both time and skill) required to create each one of these special dresses is unheard of, especially in the world of canine fashion. Because the dresses are all of limited availability, be sure to get your fur angel one before they are sold out forever. You and all of your pup’s admirers will swoon over the unprecedented quality of this rare, yet extraordinary art of hand smocking.
