This precious dress features a lace yoke with a lace skirt band edged in a gathered lace ruffle.  The yoke consists of a variety of French Valenciennes and French Maline laces.  The neck edge is finished with entredeux and gathered lace.  The bottom of the front and back yokes has been given additional detail with the addition of "fancy" entredeux.  

 

The lace skirt band consists of one French Maline lace insertion with French Valenciennes insertions on either side.  It is attached to the fabric of the skirt with entredeux.  French Maline lace edging is gathered around the perimeter of the lace band.

 

The dress pictured is made from ivory Nelona and champagne/ lt. ecru French Valenciennes and French Maline laces.  

 

All seams have been French seamed.  The skirt, liner (built-in slip), and sleeves have been hand rolled and whipped.  The skirt, liner, and sleeves are attached to the yoke by hand.  
 
This design can be custom made in white, ivory, pale pink, pink, Robin's egg blue, or blue batiste with your choice of laces.  It can be adapted to fit larger sizes.  (Price will vary depending on design choices and size) 

 

As in each of my designs, all effort is made to follow traditional French hand sewn techniques to ensure the highest quality heirloom garment.
