Our universally flattering café capri, overlaid with genuine Leavers lace from a sixth-generation mill in New England. Famously intricate, Leavers lace is created on massive 10-foot looms that employ a complex system of brass bobbins and steel carriages that swing back and forth in a pattern dictated by a coded punch-card mechanism—like a jacquard—to wind the extremely fine threads into a special motif. (Think of the looms as computers from the early 1800s that produce beautiful openwork.) Hand-finished by expert weavers, the lace lets a brilliant floral pattern peek out, lending a textural, 3-D effect to the print. It's a truly special piece you'll treasure for years.
