We know all about little girls around here. My girls love ruffles, dressing up, and accessorizing with flower headbands. They need no convincing to try on new outfits unless my youngest is feeling particularly partial to her beloved purple tutu. If so, good luck convincing her to change. I’m excited to feature some of the latest fashions from Matilda Jane Clothing’s Once Upon a Time collection and our tips for how to make easy DIY Flower Headbands!
Many of these MJ dresses, tops, and leggings incorporate my favorite colors into darling designs; pink, lavender, dusty aqua, and mauve. These beautiful fashions for little girls spare no detail when it comes to buttons, lace, ribbons, trim, coordinating and contrasting patterns, and layers of ruffles.
Matilda Jane Twirly Dresses
My girls love wearing dresses for everyday play which is exactly what Matilda Jane Clothing offers! These cute outfits are made to withstand regular trips to the playground and casual backyard play. The cute little girl fashions spare no darling details, constructed with high quality fabrics and adorably contrasting patterns. Many of the designs are decorated with gorgeous stitching and decorative accents.
DIY Flower Headbands
You can easily make a flower headband to gorgeously coordinate with any outfit. I love making custom headbands for the girls because I can design them to match any color combination.
Plain silk headband
Hot glue gun
Silk or cloth flowers, large and small
Hot glue an array of flowers and sparkly accents to a plain silk headband. Start with the largest flower first and work your way out, arranging largest to smallest. The glue will dry within seconds and the custom headband will be ready to wear! I love picking out craft flowers and sparkly accents from my favorite craft suppliers.

Matilda Jane Clothing is known for their attention to detail. These darling outfits have ruffle sleeves, beautiful embroidery detailing, whimsical buttons with dots, intertwined stripes and floral patterns, ribbons, sashes, and beautiful color palettes. I love how these little girl fashions incorporate very different patterns that somehow come together in gorgeously coordinating designs. I also love that Matilda Jane Clothing (founded by a mom entrepreneur!) paved the way for this style of modern farmhouse fashion within the children’s clothing industry.

I love the crossover straps on this Matilda Jane apron dress. It’s perfect to wear over a long sleeve or short sleeve top as a universal basic for summer and winter. The straps are accented with ruffles and coordinate with the waistband. Florals and stripes come together in this dress to create a darling little girl classic! Matilda Jane even put ruffles on this basic lavender top, decorated with a tiny ruffle all along the length of each sleeve. Matilda Jane Clothing designs make little girls feel so feminine!
We love having pretend tea parties, baking cookies and cupcakes, and even enjoying after-nap tea time with juice and snacks. These cute mix and match cupcakes by Green Toys are made in the USA from recycled materials. They come apart so you can stack the cupcake and icing into each cupcake base. Each cupcake fits onto the cupcake stand; a darling play set for any girl who loves pretend baking!

Green Toys makes all of their imaginative toddler toys from recycled milk jugs and their designs are so high quality and adorable. My daughter also loves the cute flower Build-a-Bouquet play set from Green Toys featuring vibrant stackable flowers, great for kids to practice their motor skills.
Darling lavender stitching accents the edges of this ruffle sleeve aqua dress and coordinates with the lavender and white dot buttons. A colorful aqua basic is not a basic dress at all thanks to the many tucks, decorative stitching, and lavender embroidery along the skirt. A length of lavender lace along the bottom offers this dress the perfect fishing touch!
I love Matilda Jane’s modest little girl fashions and mix and match layering options for any season.

Matilda Jane Clothing is a timeless addition to any little girl’s wardrobe. This company has easily shaped my little girls’ love for dresses and all things girly. I love clothing that helps keep little girls little for as long as possible. The most recent Matilda Jane clothing release was designed in partnership with HTGV’s Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines. She gives the latest clothing styles a farmhouse feel with whimsical patterns and details, inspired by her own two little girls.
“Matilda Jane is a collaboration that’s personal for me. My girls have been wearing MJ dresses, skirts, and accessories for years — and I never get tired of seeing them love what they wear. With this line, I hope to bring that same fun home to your and your girls.”
– Joanna Gaines
Ultimately, Matilda Jane fashions for little girls inspire good old fashioned play, whether playing with unicorns, mermaids, or simply make believe. My daughter will put on a favorite outfit and wear it for days and Matilda Jane holds up well and easily withstands stains, regardless of what my daughter gets into. I’ve kept these clothes nice with good laundry products such as Nellie’s All Natural Stain Stick which has effectively removed chocolate, berry stains, and more from my daughter’s clothes.
I want my daughter to have fun playing with her toys such as Vtech’s interactive light up and musical Twinkle the Magical Unicorn, rather than worry about her getting her play clothes dirty. Fortunately Matilda Jane Clothing designs easily withstand a lot of every day fun and still look beautiful at the end of the day. ♥
