This charming silhouette named "Marcella" was copied from a 1918 housedress. The creme, mauve and blue Art Nouveau floral print cotton broadcloth is as light in weight as it is lovely. Marcella's bodice has tucks at the shoulder and at the waist. The "V" shaped neckline is created by the surplice of the bodice revealing point e'spirit lace and bands of antique French lace. The three quarter sleeves have turned up lace cuffs with a delicate ruffle at edge. Barrel skirt is gathered into the 1-inch waist band and features double tuck detailing near hem. Note the pert patch pockets that showcase a cluster of tucks secured with a fabric band and miniature bow. Pockets have a delicate half round lace flap with antique French lace and ruffled edge.
