Fabric:  Black lightweight taffeta, dark red lightweight taffeta, and white 100% cotton eyelet

Skirt fits a full petti, shown here on 100-yard crystalline one (not included).  Gored skirt falls in a beautiful circle.  Bottom tier is made from same fabric, with a tight rolled pico stitch along the top edge, and flat scalloped lace along the hem, and it is attached with a ruffled red lace, which is covered with a black flat lace.

Every other of the seam has decorative Swiss-style flat floral trim to create the effect of the Swiss Miss style dress.

Bodice base is made of white eyelet.  The contrasting red vest is attached, and finished the Swiss-style flat trim, a narrower version of what is on the skirt.  The vest goes to the center front, with an opening trimmed in white specialty lace that allows the insertion of a black & red cord to create the effect of a dirndl.

Sleeves are made of white eyelet also, and have flat lace trim on the hem.  A bow is made from the Swiss-style trim at the side of each sleeve.

Peter Pan collar is made of white as well, with white ruffled white lace trim sandwiched between the layers.

The white eyelet apron is separate and features a self ruffle trimmed in white lace along both edges, with a nice wide waistband and sashes that do up in the center back.
