This precious dress features a lace yoke with a lace skirt band edged in a gathered lace ruffle.  The neck edge is finished with entredeux and gathered lace.  The bottom of the front and back yokes has been given additional detail with the addition of fancy entredeux.  

The deep lace band consists of two French Maline lace insertions and three French Valenciennes insertions.  It is attached to the fabric of the skirt with entredeux.  French Valenciennes lace edging is gathered around the perimeter of the lace band.

The dress pictured is made from blue Swiss batiste and ecru French Valenciennes and French Maline 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, pink, or blue batiste with your choice of laces.  It can be adapted to fit larger sizes.  (Price will vary depending on design choices and size) 

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