"As Luck would have It"
by UniKaren Designs

PHOTOS ARE COPYRIGHT TO UNIKARENDESIGNS.  If you wish to use any photos of me modeling my dresses on your website, you MUST obtain permission. 

Fabric:  Lightweight true red taffeta, white nylon lace.

Skirt fits a full petti, shown here on 17" 100-yard crystalline one (not included).  Gored skirt falls in a beautiful circle, with a bottom tier trimmed in wide white lace. Ruffles are made from the taffeta, with the flat white trim along the bottom edge, and white flat lace along the top edge.  They are attached with wide ruffled white lace.  The upper ruffle goes all the way around and sweeps up to the center back, and between the sweeps are yards and yards more ruffles to fill in the back. This UniKaren's trademark "Rufflebutt" design. 

Darted fitted bodice features a strip of white galloon lace down the center, with ribbon insertion.  At the top of the lace is a wider white satin ribbon bow. Wide taffeta ruffles trimmed in white lace go from center front to center back, attached with wide white ruffled lace.

Stand-up collar features the decorative flat lace trim with ribbon through the design, as on the bodice. It has ribbon loops at the back through which a locking mechanism can be inserted (not included).

Full pouffy sleeves are elasticized for upper arm comfort, hemmed in wide white lace to match the skirt.  Vertical rows of white ruffle lace trimmed with white ribbon embellish the sleeve.  White ribbon bows finish off the sleeves.  Pleated at the shoulder for a professional finish.

Separate apron has matching ruffles, and long sashes to tie over the center back, to adjust to your waist comfort level.
