I've seen a lot of buzz on the web about Shabby Apple. It's a fashion company "started by women and for women seeking to bring dresses back to what they used to be: a one piece outfit. No need to add anything-no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories of course)".
They have beautiful boutique and vintage style dresses, skirts, and tops that are not only fashionable, but also modest.
What's also neat about this company is that a percentage of their proceeds go to charities that benefit women and children.
You may be familiar with Shabby Apple's women's dresses, but did you know that they also have a Shabby Baby line too?

We’ve designed all of our toddler and infant girl dresses to compliment our other lines so whatever Shabby Apple outfit you’re wearing, you’re daughter is sure to look great along side you!
I love finding adorable clothing for my daughter. Now that she is in the toddler stage, I look for items that are cute as well as comfortable and functional.
The company sent me this Hibiscus dress in Size 12-18 months. It has beautiful white flowers outlined with yellow and brown with shades of blue and green. The coloring is perfect for spring or summer.
It's a light fabric as well, which is great for when the weather gets warm. For cooler days, you can add a sweater or cardigan.
The dress is machine washable on the delicate cycle and must be line dried. I like that it doesn't have to be hand washed; that's definitely a time saver.
The site states "This dress fits very generously through the neck and shoulders. We do not recommend ordering a size up." I found that to be true. However, the brown band with the button in the back was a little tight. (I'm not sure how long this dress will fit, and there aren't any larger sizes available in this style.) The larger 18-24 months size might not be as tight, but I'm not sure if it would be too loose around the neck and shoulder area.
There is a sizing guide for their women's collection, but there isn't one for their baby collection. I think a sizing guide would be helpful. Especially since sizing for babies and toddlers varies among companies.
My only other criticism is that the dress does not come with a diaper cover. I like having a diaper cover, not only for the look, but also to keep my curious tot from trying to take off her diaper.
Overall, I am very pleased with this dress!
