It is made from #30crochet thread, which is very fine string. There are many love knots on the sleeve caps(Crochet love knots inspired by the Celtic never-ending knots, the symbol of eternal love) ,around the outer edge of the yoke, and the edging around the neck. The flower diamond and mesh motif is repeated in the yoke, sleeve caps, It is joined together by hand sewing and fed with satin ribbons at the yoke,around the sleeves, and button holes, and between the skirt and bottom ruffle.

Due to detail work dry cleaning is suggested but it is also possible to hand wash by soaking in Denture tablets and rinsing then soaking it in fabric softner and drying in the sun.
