As August approaches, it is now time to start preparing the school year ahead. A new school year means a fresh beginning, a year of learnings and discoveries as endless as the sky and a chance to meet new challenges! An important milestone which deserves to be celebrated!


Back to school blue and white gingham classic chic handmade school dress - Born on Fifth

The perfect back to school dress :

To start back school in style, we have designed a very special dress with Emily Hertz, founder of Born on Fifth. Initially created exclusively for her pre-K daughter Elle, this pastel shade blue gingham dress with ABCDE handmade embroideries turned out so pretty that we decided to make a few more! A limited edition is therefore available online. Secure your size and shop now.

Zoom in on the details :

*Associated to the magical word of Dorothy from the Wizard Oz, pale blue gingham is a favorite for little girls. Called "Vichy" in French, it is extremely popular.

*The sweet white cotton piqué collar gives a chic French look and elegant finishing touch!

*All the embroideries are entirely made by hand using traditional hoops. We call it "needle painting" due to the high level of sophistication making it look almost like brush strokes!

*Fully lined, the dress twirls beautifully!

 How to wear our ABCDE dress :

Less is more and the embroideries speak for themselves.

We recommend wearing this dress with a classic white bow such as the Only on the Avenue Ruffle Silk Statement hair bow and white shoes. The Age of Innocence Mary white sandals perfectly compliment the dress.

For props we recommend the Beaufort Bonnet Company back to school Pennants.
