The Hadley Heirloom Dress

The Hadley Heirloom Dress





This beautiful heirloom dress features an all lace yoke in ecru French laces.  The yoke has a narrow gathered ruffle at the neckline and a wider gathered ruffle around the perimeter of the yoke.  

The elaborate skirt features four lace bands interspersed between a wide Swiss embroidery insertion and two smaller Swiss embroidery insertions.  The skirt is finished with a deep gathered French lace ruffle.

The dress also has a built-in liner or slip made in matching Swiss batiste with a lace edging applied flat to the bottom.

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

Please feel free to contact me concerning customizing this design to your specifications and to receive an estimated turn around time.

PLEASE NOTE:  This dress was made to complement younger brother's outfit.  Both were designed to be worn in a wedding.  Please see the following link for the matching button-on  suit.
