"Best Maid"
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:  Pink (almost lavender) satin, black stretchy nylon with taffeta feel, double ruffled nylon lace, satin ribbon

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 made of black fabric, finished in wide black flat floral scalloped lace.

Upper ruffle is also made of black fabric and sweeps up at the sides and in the center back. On the 'lift' is a ribbon, pink at the sides and black at the back (to not conflict with the pink sashes of the apron).

Apron is separate; features the satin fabric and is trimmed in black. Sashes tie in the back and can be cinched to fit the dress comfortably.

The satin bodice has a mock pinafore look with an attached black bib, trimmed with wide black ruffles trimmed in black lace, going from front to center back.  The stitching of the attached double ruffled lace includes a tiny pink floral design detail.

Stand-up collar is made of contrasting black fabric and has black ruffled lace.  Loops at the back allow for a locking mechanism if desired.

 Full pouffy sleeves are elasticized for upper arm comfort.  Pleated at the shoulder for a professional finish, these sleeves feature four vertical rows of black ruffled lace to capture the contrast of the black in the outfit.  They are finished with wide black flat floral lace to match the hem of the skirt and the bloomers.

Bloomers feature two rows of ruffles, trimmed with black lace on both edges, and attached with the double ruffled white on pink lace, stitched with the tiny floral stitch that matches the bodice ruffles.  Hems are finished in the same wide black floral scalloped lace as on the bottom tier of the skirt.  Pink ribbons adorn the side seams.
