and waistband, with ribbon ties.




Close up of the yoke trim which has cross and rose motifs.

Veil for Guinevere with mantilla lace edging
 interspersed with lace edging motifs. It also has
a eucharistic motif and virgin and child motifs made from
lace embroidery.


Cecilia's



Beautiful heart-shaped glass button to finish the neck edge.

Anne's dress in embroidered cotton.


Holly's broderie anglaise dress,
 with matching trim at cuffs and waistband.





Louise's dress is of dotted swiss fabric, 
with broderie anglaise trim.




Lucy's dress is of floral embroidered cotton voile,
with broderie anglaise trim.


Francesca & Madalyn's dresses
 are of embroidered polyester voile with cotton
broderie anglaise trim.


Bernadette's Empire style (High waisted)
pure cotton broderie anglaise dress
with satin trim.





The hemline was painstakingly finished around the design of the flowers -
it's a good job this dress wasn't too full!

Bernadette felt that she "looked like an angel"
when she tried it on, I think I agree!


Mantilla veil with cross made for Abigail.


Alice's mantilla was made to match her beautiful
 First Communion dress
 which had been made for her mother
 by her grandmother - it's nice to see
how well broderie anglaise dresses can last!
