From our new collection, Bright Star, in collaboration with our talented illustrator Flor of Coffeshere and in loving memory of Kyle Bankes.
The bodice features delicate princess seams at center front to create an elegant tailor and fit against the body, accented by decorative top stitching and rose scallop lace carefully dyed by hand to match the garment. Corset boning was inserted into the seams to create a fitted shape against the body.
A chiffon wrap swoops over the shoulders, carefully top stitched and whip stitched at the neckline for a secure finish. It's accented by a satin bow at center front. Two narrow straps hang delicately against the shoulders and are adjustable with two button holes.
At center back, five rows of elastic allowing for the ease and comfort of a shirred center back, while yards of satin ribbon weave to and fro tying neatly into a bow at the waist. The ribbon is carefully threaded through a scalloped trim to create the appearance of a corset like effect.
The skirt is gathered at the waist and is cut with more of an a-line shape showing off 3-4 yards of fabric, and can fit up to 2-4 petticoats depending on their size and shape, with a hem circumference of 108-144 inches. The hem is accented by a polyester cotton lace decorated in roses.
This dress is fully lined. All seams have been finished with either a French seam or Hong Kong bias, with additional serged edges. An invisible side zipper allows for easy on or off. The generous hem was finished with a simple top stitch, or done with a blind stitch hem by hand.
(Note: Chemical laces are delicate. Please be careful, and do not pull too tightly on the ribbon as this will cause the lace to fray or break. It is merely meant as delicate decoration, not for tightening the bodice. Dyed laces may not be perfectly even as I am doing them by hand.)

Hand wash on cold, do not use bleach or detergent with phosphates. Hang dry. Never iron directly on the print, always iron inside out. Use low, medium heat with low steam for cotton sateen and lowest setting on chiffon, delicate fabrics. When pressing near ribbon or laces, place a fabric on top to keep them safe.
