    Dear friends, I actually wanted to post this thread under 'shopping' but that link doesn't seem to work. I'm looking for some shop names n addresses in Chennai (if it's in Adyar, Mylai, Besantnagar, Alwarpet,T.nagar would be great!) where one can get smocked frocks, tops for girl babies. I'm not a big fan of huge stores like Westside or the ones in T nagar but do recommend any shop that you think sells good quality stuff. Thank you! Latha

    Dear Friends,
    I regularly buy smocked dresses from V T I , Anna Salai.
    A beautiful range is generally available there.
    Love,

    Thank you very much dear friends:) I was digging up all the lists that i usually make whenever i visit home and get recommendations from friends. The school near Gemini flyover never crossed my mind:) my friend had got a cute set when my son was born... all hand embroidered. Thanks Janani for the tip. I'll ask my husband to check that out. Yes also VTI, Chithra madam. I was there last year but couldn't see much because my boy was unwell:( That's great! Latha

    Shanthi,
    They do baby sets , yes, about sweaters you have to find out if they do. They do other kinds of embroidery also. Bought stuff for my kids, the work was awesome.

    A boutique for specially smocked and hand embroidered dresses from 0-8 yrs in T.nagar. The contact number is 98410 50925. Very tastefully, designed with fine fabric and aesthetic color combinations. In linens, corduroy, cottons.......the stitching and finish too is excellent.
