Wrap a little girl in a beautiful cherry-red summer dress with exquisite detailing. With a lacework hem, ribbed band and babbles around the neckline, that special little girl will look delightful. The cotton is ideal for summer outings, but the style could also transition into fall by pairing the dress over leggings and a long sleeved top.
