This First Communion Dress (with or without the collar) has a 100% Silk Organza overskirt and sleeves, with the bodice and underskirt in Silk Shantung (a refined Dupioni).

The bodice is delicately hand-embroidered with silk ribbon rosettes, white silk floss stems, pale green leaves, and seed pearls. The embroidery is framed with five rows of pintucks on either side. Collar is trimmed with French lace and sweet, delicate embroidered roses. If purchased without the collar, the neckline will be trimmed in the French lace. If you would like the dress without the collar, please indicate that in message to seller.

Both the underskirt and overskirt are a very full 90" in diameter. The dress ties in the back with a full organza bow.

Length of gown is "t-length" - just below the calf.

The dress is completely lined in 100% Cotton Batiste with an attached slip.

Silk Shantung is an elegant heirloom fabric found only in specialty boutiques and custom dress shops. It is "pearl" white - a shade between bright white and off white - giving the gown a rich, creamy look. Natural silk fabrics have slubs which are an inherent part of the fibers - these should not be mistaken for flaws in the fabric. Only gowns made of natural fibers (silk, 100% cotton) are truly heirloom quality, and will not yellow with time. In my home custom sewing business, this is the most preferred fabric for First Communions!
