Testimonials

The christening gown and romper look ethereal. The details on the outfits, especially the gown, are truly the work of an artist. I am so happy that Ayana went along with my suggestion of Smocked Treasures as the source for her babies' christening attire. Now we have one very satisfied and excited mom. I know that these will become for their family treasured heirlooms. Thank you for the readiness with which you responded to my queries and accepted my ideas. You were not only the consummate professional but the joy that you derive from creating this unique type of attire is clearly evident. Through your creations may you continue to contribute to the special memories of families - known and unknown to you - for many more years. Once again my thanks and best wishes.
