All About the Preslee
The Preslee is an extravagant event gown made from 100% silk dupioni. Dupioni is a subtly textured fabric in a plain weave pattern. The yarn is uneven and varies in width, creating a series of natural horizontal “slubs”. These “slubs” make up the unique character of the fabric and offer a rich feel. The Preslee’s silk is a pearl white color. It’s a rich, creamy shade between white and ivory.
The silk is overlain with stunning embroidered tulle lace. This tulle lace is a sheer net in a hexagonal mesh pattern. It is a light, flowing fabric. Pretty embroidered flowers are elegantly scattered across the tulle. Each features a delicate bough of beads, hand-sewn in place.
The bodice features a scalloped-lace overlay, a lustrous double-face silk ribbon sash, and stunning silk rosette. The beautiful rosette is hand-finished with a spray of ostrich feathers and three freshwater pearls. A matching rosette piece is placed on a wide, stretchy-lace headband. The bodice boasts feminine puffed sleeves.
The silk skirt is overlain with the embroidered & delicately beaded tulle lace. The hem is finished with a petite scallop. The Preslee is a regal length gown. (Overall length is 38-40″, depending on the size.) The double-faced silk ribbon sash ties in the back. A row of silk-covered buttons fastens the back of the gown. It’s presentation ready with an heirloom style. (Buttons part-way down the back.)
A soft cotton slip is layered beneath the Preslee. It features a generous ruffled hem that adds a touch of body to the skirt of the gown. Personalize the slip with a name and date embroidery for a special touch.
The Preslee Gown comes as a four-piece set and includes: the gown, a matching headband, the ruffled cotton slip and a muslin preservation garment bag. Add all the separate co-ordinates: the Preslee Slippers, the Preslee Blanket and the Preslee Bib for a complete look. As always, the Preslee is handcrafted, with love, in the USA of imported fabrics.
