"Swiss Miss Black Red"
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:  Black taffeta, red satin and 100% cotton eyelet

Lined bodice has four darts in front and two darts in the back to create a womanly figure to show off the white eyelet bodice inset. The inset and around the shoulders is trimmed with a double ruffled red satin over black lace ruffle, and stitched again with a black lace to finish the edges. 

The center front of the bodice midriff features two vertical rows of lace with large enough holes to accommodate a lace-up effect.  The lace is red and white and ties at the top under the chest area.

The sleeves are also made of the white eyelet fabric, with white bows to finish them off. They are finished in white eyelet flat lace trim.

The skirt is made of black taffeta, not quite full enough for a very full petticoat, but with enough of a flair that it will twirl nicely. The bottom tier is made from the same fabric, trimmed with two laces, one is a wider red, the other is a narrower white. The ruffle is attached with a double ruffled red and white lace.

The apron is separate, lined in white lining, and finished with eyelet ruffles, attached with the same double ruffled white and red lace as the bottom tier of the skirt. Two white satin bows adorn the front band.  The sashes tie into a perky bow over the center back zipper.
