Swiss Voile Heirloom Dress with Handloom
This stunning heirloom dress features a lace yoke with a gathered lace yoke ruffle. The yoke consists of a variety of French Maline laces. The neck edge is finished with entredeux and gathered lace.
The two lace skirt bands consists of French Maline lace insertions and a STUNNING vintage handloom embroidered on organdy. This handloom is no longer available on the market, which makes this dress a one-of-a-kind. Three French Maline laces are put together to create the lace ruffle which is gathered around the bottom of the skirt.
The dress is made from pale pink Swiss voile and champagne French Maline laces. The liner is constructed in Swiss batiste edged in French Maline lace.
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.
As in each of my designs, all effort is made to follow traditional French hand sewn techniques to ensure the highest quality heirloom garment.
Finished length from the back of the neckline to the bottom of the ruffle is 29 inches.
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam across the front is 10 inches.
