This stunning heirloom dress features a lace yoke with a center hand embroidered panwl.  The yoke consists of a variety of French Maline laces and it has a gathered lace yoke ruffle.  The neck edge is finished with entredeux and gathered lace.  

 

The sleeves are constructed entirely of laces and have a gathered lace ruffle. 

 

The lace skirt band consists of five French Maline lace insertions.  It is attached to the fabric of the skirt with entredeux.  Three French Maline laces are put together to create the lace ruffle which is gathered around the bottom of the skirt.

 

The dress pictured is made in ivory Swiss batiste and champagne French Maline laces.  This dress is also available in pale pink, blue, or white Swiss voile or you may choose from a variety of colors in Swiss batiste.  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.  
 
This design may also be made using all French Valenciennes laces or a mixture of Vals and Malines.  The price would be less if choosing these laces.

 

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