This stunning heirloom dress features a lace yoke with a gathered lace yoke ruffle.  The yoke consists of French Maline laces, beading, and beautiful rose netting insertion. Pink double sided ribbon runs through the beading.  The neck edge is finished with entredeux and gathered lace.  

 

The lace skirt band consists of four French lace insertions and beadings as well as the rose netting.  It is attached to the fabric of the skirt with entredeux.  A French lace ruffle is gathered around the bottom of the skirt.

 

The dress pictured is made from pale pink Swiss batiste and champagne French Maline laces.  This dress is also available in blue or white Swiss voile or you may choose from a variety of colors in Swiss batiste.  The liner is constructed in Swiss batiste edged in French lace.

 

All seams have been French seamed.  The skirt, liner (built-in slip), and sleeves have been hand rolled and whipped.  The skirt, liner, and sleeves are attached to the yoke by hand.  
 
This design may also be made using all French Valenciennes or a mixture of Vals and Malines.  The price would be adjusted for your lace choices.

 

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