This Irish Linen handmade First Communion dress is so sweet. The hemline and sleeves are made of a sheer and beautiful scallop Swiss embroidery. The bodice features a simple row of coordinating Swiss insertion, and two rows of Entredeux insertion. I now accent the waist with a beautiful 2″ Rayon/Cotton Grosgrain ribbon which can be either stitched down in front to tie in the back, or loose with side ribbon carriers to tie in either front or back.
The dress is fully lined in soft, 100% Cotton Batiste with an attached slip. For a truly collectible piece, have your daughter’s name and First Communion date embroidered on the slip – see my Custom Embroidery listing.
The back closes with five 1/2″ mother of pearl buttons – the mark of true heirloom gowns.
For proper storage, please consider purchasing my Heirloom Preservation Kit.
