This is style.
A cotton print, with green ruffle trimming, and yards of lace. Ecru bows trim down the front over the lace and trim. This skirt and bodice is worn over the every present hoop skirt. The bodice is lined with the green fabric used for ruffles.
A green straw hat and a lace shawl has joined this ensemble. It takes quite a bit more time to complete one of these outfits, but she never looked prettier.
The ecru lace sets off the green of the lining perfectly. These gowns are quite a bit more elaborate then any other I've worked on and take quite a bit more time. So. please bare with me as I construct her wardrobe. The wait will be worth it.
