I had mentioned some time back that my oldest daughter was being taught white work by me for a project she was doing for school. She did all the embroidery then I assembled the dress for her a mother and daughter effort. I think she did a great job for her first time effort she even went as far to hand embroider each button hole.
The tatting is some antique that I had that we added to make the dress a little fancier. She could have made the tatting herself ( as I taught her to tat in the last a few years) or I could have made some even fancier but since we already had white we just choose to use it instead.
