Lilly Lovers Loving Lace

I went straight to our Dress Man, Abraham, for the details behind the stunning Battenburg lace — seen (for the first time ever!!) in the latest Summer delivery of cocktail dresses from Lilly.  Here’s what he had to say about this gorgeous new fabrication …

Battenburg lace is lace created by woven tape that is hand stitched together into intricate patterns. Our pattern art work was hand drawn by Victoria Davis and I to create a truly Lilly Lace. Each panel is created by hand; giving each garment a truly unique, one-of-kind quality. The pattern was designed to flatter the figure and curve with the body. The new Marie-Kate style is a great figure-friendly shape and the Bowen is the ultimate strapless dress- we love it so much!

Abraham also gave us a quick Battenburg history lesson which sounded suspiciously similar to this. ;)   All you really need to know?  These dresses are truly beautiful and will cause you to looooong for lace!

All I can say about that is that I have to have one. I love Lilly. I love Lace. And I love Battenburg. When I take all of that into consideration, it’s perfectly clear to me that I must have this dress. Margie
