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 pin tucks and French laces.  The yoke consists of horizontal pin tucks with French laces.

 

The puff sleeves are finished with entredeux beading and gathered lace edging.  

 

The skirt has lace insertions and a pin tucked band and the ruffle is applied flat to the skirt bottom.  

 

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

 

All seams have been French seamed.  The skirt, liner (built-in slip), and sleeves have been hand rolled and whipped and then attached to the yoke 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.

 

Please contact me to discuss the design options available and current turn around times.
