The Emily Heirloom Dress

The Emily Heirloom Dress





This beautiful dress features a scalloped yoke with shaped lace.  The front yoke is embellished with hand embroidery consisting of feather stitched bows and bullion roses in muted pastel colors.  The skirt of this dress has a simple lace band in ecru French Maline lace and is finished with a wide gathered lace ruffle.  Hand embroidery encircles the entire skirt above the lace band.  The exquisiteness of this dress is due to the many hours of hand embroidery that went into embellishing it.

Swiss batiste is used throughout.  This dress has a liner (built-in slip) which is finished with a lace edge applied flat. 

All seams are French seamed.

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

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

This dress is appropriate for ages 2 years old and up.

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 to ensure the highest quality item to passed down and preserved for generations.

You may choose from a range of fabric color choices which include white, light blue, pale pink, pink, Robin's egg blue, and ivory.  The embroidery may be completed in ecru (as pictured), white, muted pastels or regular pastels.
