This precious dress features a hand embroidered yoke with lace insertions running horizontally across the bottom of the yoke.  The neck edge is finished with entredeux and gathered lace.  In addition to the neck ruffle, this design also has a gathered yoke ruffle. 

 

The hand embroidery consists of blue feather stitched bow and pink roses.  The colors may be adjusted to your specifications.

  

The deep lace band on the skirt consists of five French Maline lace insertions. It is attached to the fabric of the skirt with entredeux.  A gathered lace ruffle completes the skirt.

 

The dress pictured is made from ivory Nelona and champagne French Maline laces.  

 

All seams have been French seamed.  The skirt, liner (built-in slip), and sleeves have been hand rolled and whipped.  The construction or attaching of the skirt, liner, and sleeves to the yoke of this dress is completed 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.  

 

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