The dress was all white with exception of pink and green in the embroidered bands. The lace sections were not too fancy, just an openweave grid fabric that was very pretty and not too ‘see-through’. The sleeves, hem and bottom of yoke were trimmed with a cotton lace edging.
Manuela told me that some ladies in Mexico find cotton lace curtains that they use for the lacy sections of garments. I was pleased to see that even ladies who are not in the first blush of youth can look really good in these dresses. I think I am going to have to bring my camera to the women’s group meetings in case Manuela wears any more fabulous dresses.
