This stunning heirloom dress features French Maline laces and puffing.  The yoke of this dress is curved along both the front and back yokes and features French Maline insertions and beading.  The front yoke has two puffing strips while the back is entirely of lace.  The yoke of this dress has a gathered lace yoke ruffle coupled with lace shoulder ruffles.  The dress is constructed using light blue Swiss batiste.

The skirt of this dress has three lace bands consisting of wide ecru French Maline insertions and beading.  There are also two puffing bands positioned between the lace bands.  The skirt has a gathered lace ruffle which consists of three insertions and wide edging.  

The puff sleeves have a gathered lace ruffle which is applied to entredeux beading and finished with double sided satin ribbon.  

The dress also has a built-in liner or slip edged in lace.

Mother of pearl buttons may be added to the back closure or left without buttons for the use of beauty bar pins.

This item will be made to your child's measurements to ensure a perfect fit.

As with all my dresses and gowns, the skirt, liner, and sleeves are hand rolled and whipped and constructed together by hand.  Every attention is given to following traditional French hand sewn techniques and to ensuring the highest quality item to passed down and preserved for generations.
