A labour of love and a celebration of tradition and craftsmanship, our smocked dresses and sets are our most iconic styles. With each garment hand finished using techniques now centuries old this is what makes each dress so special. A piece to treasure, hold onto and pass down the family for generations to come.

At La Coqueta, smocked dresses are a staple part of our collection. A classic style, our smocked dresses for girls features polka dots and botanical inspired fabrics, that have a timeless quality. All dresses with smocked detailing have been expertly hand-finished by our ateliers in Spain.
Style our Spanish smocked dresses with Nappa leather Mary Janes, knee-high socks and satin bows for a dressed-up look. Want a more dressed down feel? Then pair with desert boots and ribbed tights. Finish off with a pretty little girls handbag to make her feel all grown up.
Summer or winter a smocked dress will see you through whatever the weather. In the colder months combine a smocked dress with a cosy cardigan and beret. In summer, pair with ballerina pumps and a headscarf.
Smocked dresses have been a childhood iconic look for centuries. Smocking is a traditional technique used to gather fabric so it can stretch, this was the most common technique used for cuffs, bodices and necklines before elastic was invented. This style of sewing has been around since the middle ages and has never fully fallen out of fashion. All of our smocked dresses are made in Spain by small groups of women, who have set up their own atelier.
Looking for the ideal gift? An embroidered smocked dress is the perfect present for a little girl on her birthday or at Christmas. A traditional and adaptable dress that will stay timeless, even as fashions change. It will be a dress that she will treasure for years to come – maybe even passing it on to her own daughter one day.
