The intricate stiches and patterns first connected to develop lace might have been in 1485 around the collar of a Flemish priest sitting for a painting. Or in 1493 Italy, as claimed by a Milanese family will. Because lace evolved from a variety of techniques, textile historians have declared it impossible to pick one origin. In the beginning, lace was created using silk, linen, silver, or gold threads.  Most lace is currently made of cotton thread, although silk and linen threads are still available. Its even been seen with fine copper or silver wire in art installations.

Two of our original designs remain true to their roots wlace dress for girls beach portraitith beautiful lace accents and classic, Southern charm – our Savannah dress, a darling flower girl design for when she’s walking in the grandest of cathedrals or the sandiest beach, and our Lace Morning Gown, a sweet cotton and lace summer style that can be dressed up or remain beach casual. Their influence is strong, as many of our designs benefit from the elegance only lace can add.

We’ll continue to support the love of lace in our collection as we believe that little girls and lace are a wonderful, charming combination!
