The Ensley Heirloom Dress

The Ensley Heirloom Dress





This stunning dress in pink Swiss batiste features tiny pin tucks on the bodice and within the interwoven lace band in the skirt.  The front bodice has vertical pin tucks with ecru French lace insertions running on either side.  The bodice around the neck line has three French laces which are shaped and put together by hand then machine reinforced.  The neckline is finished with entredeux then gathered French lace edging.

The skirt features an interwoven lace band with pin tucks within each loop.  A deep lace ruffle is gathered around the bottom of the skirt.

This dress comes with a separate slip in Swiss batiste.  The bottom of the slip has French edging applied flat.

Mother of pearl buttons are used on the dress and slip.

An ecru satin ribbon sash is used at the waistline.

As with all my heirloom dresses and gowns, the sleeves and skirt on this dress are hand rolled and whipped and constructed by hand.  Every attention is given to ensuring the finest quality French hand sewn dress which will be treasured for generations.

This dress would be lovely in white for First Communion.
