As a sartorial detail, the ruffle has a long and sometimes chequered history. Ruffles conjure up images of Gone With the Wind era Southern belles where a grown woman can swan through the streets in a red taffeta with ruffles and layers emphasising the décolleté gown. Historically, ruffles were a unisex addition to an item of clothing and the ruffle itself doesn’t get any better than the Elizabethan ruff, which was a heavily starched affair worn around the neck – uncomfortable, no doubt, but did wonders for the Elizabethan posture!
The Ruffle dress that we make is a beautiful silk flower girl dress available in 140 different silk colours. Please have a look at the pure silk swatch cards and email us with your address and the reference numbers of the swatches that you would like to see and we’ll post them out to you.
As we make all of our flower girl dresses and first communion dresses to order which means that we can change the style or mix the colours to suit your wedding theme.
The information that we need with each order is as follows:
Length from shoulder to waist
Length from shoulder to hem
Age and date of the event.
