The Laurel A-line Dress
CUSTOM ITEM ONLY!
PLEASE SEE THE CUSTOM ORDER FORM LOCATED IN THE MENU BAR!
This sweet dress has a waisted bodice with a lace edged Peter Pan collar. The dress is constructed using ivory Swiss flannel. The skirt is gathered across the front and back and has a five inch hem which is blind hemmed by hand. The skirt is French seamed.
The bodice front has an inverted box pleat which is edged in entredeux and gathered French Maline lace. Lilac roses and avocado leaves/stems further embellishes the inverted box pleat. The lilac/avocado embroidery is only lovely on the ivory fabric, but the embroidery can also be completed in pastels, all ecru, or all blue.
This dress is available in white, ivory, pale pink, or light blue Swiss flannel for cooler months, but it is also available in white, ivory, pale pink, or light blue Pima broadcloth.
The sleeves are edged in a gathered lace ruffle which is attached using entredeux beading. The sleeve edge is hand rolled and whipped and gathered to fit the lace ruffle. The sleeve is set into the dress using a French seam rather than overcasting.
