Note:  This dress was made using vintage trims and laces;  new designs will have similar trims and laces, but not identical.

 

This sweet design features Swiss embroideries.  The yoke has Swiss embroidered insertions and lace. 

 

The puff sleeves are finished with entredeux beading and gathered lace Swiss embroidered edging.  The edging is hand rolled and whipped and attached to the entredeux beading by hand.

 

The skirt has lace insertions and a pin tucked band or you may choose additional Swiss embroidery.

 

The Swiss embroidered ruffle is applied flat to the skirt bottom.  

 

The dress pictured is made from ivory Swiss batiste and ecru French Valenciennes laces.  

 

All seams have been French seamed.  The skirt, liner (built-in slip), and sleeves have been hand rolled and whipped.  The construction of this dress is also completed by hand.  
 
This design can be custom made in white, ivory, pale pink, pink, Robin's egg blue, light blue, or blue batiste with your choice of laces. 

 

As in each of my designs, all effort is made to follow traditional French hand sewn techniques to ensure an heirloom quality garment.
