This ready-to-smock bishop bubble is made using premium Swiss satin striped voile in pale pink. The angle sleeves have been trimmed with cotton french lace.
All inside seams have been hand sewn closed. The crutch has a durable KAM resin snap closure, that has been covered with matching fabric to the bubble.
The back contains a sewn in placket with shortened binding on one side. This stops any overlap of the binding on the back of the neck, reducing bulk and creating a flat finish. Side and back seams have been finished with French seams. The center front pleat valley has been marked with thread.
Buttons and snaps have not been sewn onto to the back neck to allow for freedom in deciding in how you would like it finished, and to choose buttons that match your smocking design.
Size 12-18 months
Length from the back of the neck to crutch is 46cm (18").
The fabric has been pre-washed.
