I love the way sweater dresses look on little girls. Named after the Norse goddess of skiing and winter, Skadi is a dress that blends the coziness of a sweater with a few frills that discerning young girls will love. I wanted this dress to be comfortable enough to be worn by a toddler on the move, yet feminine enough to make a little girl feel like a goddess. Worn with tights and boots, Skadi is perfect for every occasion from a casual playdate to a brisk stroll through the city.
