Suggestions for REALLY fantastic Christmas dresses for infants?

Okay, tall order: I'm looking for a dress for my daughter who will be 3 months old at Christmas. I want it long sleeve, dressy (rather than casual), and with sort of a European or traditional feel to it. And I'm hoping to spend $40 or less. I've tried searching all over Google and the closest I've found is Hanna Andersson, but everything is too casual. Any favorite stores?

Thanks!


(As a side note to any kids clothing designers or buyers: why are 90% of Christmas dresses short sleeved? The cardigan is a hassle and usually just covers up the cute dress, and it's too cold for an infant to be bare-armed!)

Oh I hate that so many dresses are short sleeved. I don't mind the cardigan but please give us the option of sleeves, lol.

Good luck finding something.

I don't think I am that helpful. I shop at Kohl's for my Girls' holiday dresses. We are in FL so I don't mind the short sleeves but I have never had trouble finding long sleeves dresses.

I have alway gotten my DD's Christmas dresses at Kohls. The sleeveless dresses always bug me too. I live in PA and you can't go sleeveless here on Christmas.

 Try JC Penney. They usually have some pretty ones. Short sleeves has always been a problem!

I've often wondered about the short sleeved dresses too! Gah. Amazon has a pretty good selection of dresses and they usually don't cost too much.

Childrens Place has some great styles.  I haven't been in there lately so I'm not sure if it's the kind you're looking for.

There is a store in the mall that only sells dresses for baby/toddlers. Maybe your mall has something similiar.
