La vie en rose. The Alice dress is guaranteed to make little ones look as angelic as they do in their grandparents’ eyes. Angelic attitudes not guaranteed, or even encouraged, with purchase!
Classic hand smocking is finished with intricate embroidered roses and delicate green leaves. The Alice is made using a beautifully soft brushed cotton, has a signature Annafie silhouette with delicate puffed cap sleeves and a peter pan collar in white.
Our dresses are lined in cotton to create a perfect flare for twirling and dancing like everybody’s watching. The Alice has fabric covered buttons that fasten at the back and an attached sash tie at the waist (12 months+), which is a good test for the best bow-tier in the family.

Annafie's clothes are designed for children to explore and have fun in! All the items can be machine washed on a delicate cycle at 30°C, ideally inside out to protect the smocking and embroidery. Alternatively you can hand wash them, but please do not soak, bleach, rub or wring the item. We recommend line drying, and not using a tumble dryer.
For silk dresses, dry cleaning is recommended. Please note that these consist of 100% raw silk, and that slight imperfections may occur as it is a natural fabric.
Please note that most of Annafie items are smocked and embroidered by hand, and therefore slight variations in the exact design can occur. Annafie are proud of their skilled craftspeople and to be a brand that values the beautiful traditional craft of smocking and embroidery.
