I could have never imagined that celebrating 5 years of Dressie Jessie Smocking would occur during the middle of a worldwide pandemic, but here we are. It's emotional in so many ways. Overjoyed that we've successfully hit 5 years. Sad that certain things, like our yearly warehouse sale, have had to be canceled. Uncertainty because no one knows when this is going to end.
During these unsettling times, I've found comfort in watching reruns of one of my all-time favorites, "Little House on the Prairie." If you're laughing at me, it's okay. My teenagers do the same thing! One of the very first episodes is entitled, "A Harvest of Friends." The quick summary is Charles Ingalls ends up hurt, and even though he's new to Walnut Grove, his friends come together to help him through a difficult situation. It occured to me that Dressie Jessie Smocking is here today because of my own "harvest of friends."
Last week I was at the post office dropping off your packages when the postal clerk asked how business was going. I told him we were hanging in there, and he proceeded to tell me that he was with friends the previous weekend and noticed that their daughter was wearing a monogrammed dress. He told them about my company, and it really struck me, this man with no children of his own is promoting my business to others in our community. I am so grateful! He's part of my "harvest of friends."
Last fall, one of my manfacturers flew into Richmond, VA to meet with me about new fabrics and future designs. It was such a "pinch me moment" to realize that this person came all the way to my small town to meet one-on-one with me. While we sat talking and planning I was hit with how blessed I am to work with such a wonderful manufacturer. He has reached out to me multiple times during this pandemic just to check on my family's health and well-being. Again, he's part of my company's "harvest of friends."
My Dressie Jessie Smocking team, my friends, my family, even my UPS and FedEx drivers, they are all a part of Dressie Jessie Smocking's 5-year celebration. But perhaps the biggest part of my "harvest" is you, my loyal and amazing customers. Please know these are not empty words. I wish I could hug each of you! Every time you order, every time you tag me in pictures, every time you share a kind word, you build my company (and me!) up. I'm not sure there is a way to adequately express my appreciation, but please know, I am truly and deeply thankful.
To express my gratitude, I'm excited to announce that I am giving away FIVE $50 gift cards! For a chance to win, please celebrate with us by leaving a comment below. I will announce the winners on Monday, June 1st.
Once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a part of the Dressie Jessie Smocking family. We are here today because of you, and I am hopeful we'll have many more years of dressing children like children together. Stay well and stay joyful!

Your children’s clothing is special. It’s become a holiday tradition to buy my granddaughter a Christmas dress from Jessie Smocking and this year I have a new grandson.
I always find something that has special meaning. Love your clothes!
So happy to hear you are managing through these tough times. I am a new customer (found you through Instagram) and will be a long time customer! Your designs are classic, fun, and beautiful! Happy 5th birthday and here’s to many more!!!
We’re so happy that you decided to start this business, because we love dressie Jessie smocking!!😍
I recently (within) the last year found out about Dressy Jessie. I was pregnant at the time and didn’t know for sure what I was having. Something told me it was going to be a girl, so I took the chance and ordered the “Baby Sister” dress. When it came I couldn’t have been more pleased with it. It was so pretty and had the best quality. It was her take home dress and is her monthly birthday dress. Thank you for such a great company.
Congrats on 5 years!!! We adore your items, and my extra girly 4 year old always reaches for your dresses first!!!
I am so thankful I found tour company! I always find what I need and the quality is amazing! Thank you for having such a great company.
Your company has made dressing my girls fun and exciting. I love that you offer prices that aren’t unreasonable. We went through a family tragedy, and just putting a smocked dress from your company on my girls helped us get through. I cannot wait to put our new baby girl in her smcocked Baby sister outfit. Keep pressing forward through all of this right now. You have customers who will always love your products.
What a beautifully positive perspective! Thank you for creating and running such a wonderful boutique. Dressing my son in his finest has brought me such joy during this pandemic. It would be easy for us all to remain in jammies all day, but getting him dressed and seeing just how cute my growing boy is brings such a smile to my face.
Congrats on 5 years! We love your clothes and that there are cute matching options for boys and girls!
Congratulations!! Wishing you many more years of success. We love our Dressie Jessie.
Congratulations on 5 years!! We’ve been dressing our daughter, Lucila Rose, in Dressie Jessie for the last 2.5 and we have so many beautiful memories and photos of her. My mother saved many of our Heirloom quality smocked and handmade dresses (I have 2 sisters), some from Colombia where we are from- I know all the dresses and bubble rompers I’ve purchased for Lucila will become heirloom pieces for my sisters daughters and maybe my own granddaughters! Thank you and here’s to the next 5!!!
Thank you for giving us beautiful, timeless clothes for our children!
Congratulations on 5 years!! We love your clothing and supporting our small local business! Keep up the great work 🤗
Dressie Jessie is my go to if I need an adorable adorable outfit in a time crunch. Items always arrive quickly.
Thankful for YOU, Jessie. More than clothes, you’ve given us memories and pieces for their forever boxes. ♥️
So exciting! Congratulations!
Hang in there—your clothes are adorable!!! My daughters wear them all the time and the quality is amazing! Happy five years!
Happy 5 years!! You always have such cute items and wonderful sales. I wish I could purchase more but I purchase items when I can. I have three girls that I love to match in your items. I also got our youngest (who is now 15 months) a Christmas romper from you last winter that was adorable. Although she can no longer wear it. I’m saving it for her for when she has a daughter as it is a timeless piece. Thank you for your creative designs and looking forward to all of your Christmas items again.
WOW!! 5 years!! That is amazing!! I might not have known this company for 5 years but I just recently had a precious baby boy ( I say recently, but he’ll be turning 1 soon) my does time fly by…but I absolutely love your clothes and designs!! I’m a stay at home mommy currently and with this whole pandemic going around, I’ve decided to pursue my own dream of being a photographer!! Seeing people like you go after their dream and be successful for 5 years now really gives this little small town mommy some hope!! I wish you all the best & many many more 5 year celebrations for your company!! Best wishes!! <3
