Casino Toilette

This gown made of a fine cotton with a tiny leaf design was made to wear out to the casino. Insertion lace and another beautiful lace are used at will here. I did not open up the back of the lace as one would in insertion lace, because of how small the area was I was working in.
  The skirt has a full ruffle around the bottom. The bodice has a wonderful little decorative collar like effect, however it's on the top of the sleeves, not on the collar. The cuffs are trimmed with lace as is the collar, and trimmings over the sleeves. Bow are added to finish the effect. The belt is grosgrain ribbon, with a nice bow in the back.
  The hat is decorated with feathers and a ribbon bow trimming. Very effective, and sheik.
