Fabric:  Deep purple satin with a hint of magenta, contrasted with black organza. Ruffled lace is double ruffled gold & white lace on the bottom with black satin over top. Flat laces are narrow black, and flat white & gold.

Skirt fits a full petti, shown here on 17" 100-yard crystalline one (not included).  Bottom tier is made of purple satin with flat lace on the bottom, black lace along the top edge, and is attached with double ruffled gold and black lace.

Upper ruffle is also made the way and and sweeps up at the center back, and between the sweeps is yards and yards of ruffles. There are 17 strips of 60" wide fabric in the dress alone.

Apron is separate. It has two ruffles of satin, one around the outside edge of the apron itself, and the other is a ruffle similar to the dress ruffles, a little on the inside of the other, attached with the double ruffled lace. Sashes tie in the back and can be cinched to fit the dress comfortably.

The satin bodice features a black strip of organdy down the center, trimmed with double ruffled lace and a gold trim.   Stand-up collar is made of satin and has gold 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 the double ruffled lace to coordinate with the rest of the outfit, two of which border a strip of black organdy down the center, as in the bodice.  They are finished with white and gold flat lace to match the hem of the skirt and the bloomers.  A gold bow finishes off the side of the sleeve.

Bloomers feature four rows of ruffles, trimmed with black lace on the top edges and white & gold lace on the bottom edges. Hems are finished in the same white and gold lace as on the bottom tier of the skirt.  Elasticized waist and leg openings offer a comfortable flexible fit.
