Item details

I have named this sweet ensemble "A Stroll in the Park" as my Bleuette looked all ready for a fashionable promenade. Accompanied by her poodle, Valeray, Madeleine Sophie steps out confidently, her little French heart sure that she can more than hold her own!

Her attire starts with her underclothing: a pair of drawers and a straight "Empire" style chemise. They are made of voile and trimmed with matching antique lace. I gave the chemise a center back opening which ties closed with silk ribbons. (This makes it a lot easier to take on and off),

Then her dear little dress: RECEPTION, a G-L style from 1931. It has a slightly dropped waist bodice, and a two tier skirt that is cut on the curve. It is sewn smoothly to the bodice, and is finished with a silk ribbon sash. The circa 1930's pink voile print is lined throughout with white cotton voile as it is so sheer. All the edges have a narrow binding of white voile. This makes it easy to finish the edges and provides good shape.

And her FAVORI Coat! I made it in a very vintage eyelet pique, and the collar and cuffs are formed of vintage Viyella (a soft wool\/cotton). The pink of her dress just shows though the little eyelet holes.

The ensemble is completed with her Italian straw hat, trimmed with narrow velvet ribbon and vintage cotton flowers. Versatile, easy to make, this style is a real classic with delicate, feminine lines. I am sure you will enjoy making it! Many other fabrics are suitable... light silks, various cottons, and thin wools will all look well!

The pattern is beautifully printed, with a full color cover showing several views.It is contained in a heavy plastic sleeve which you can insert into a binder. This Bleuette clothing was made to fit the Janice Naibert type Bleuette body, (approx 10 and 5\/8" tall with head) but should fit others as well. Please convo if you have any questions. This clothing should also fit (perhaps with minor adjustments) dolls with well proportioned bodies, which measure 10"-11"..

You are buying the pattern only... the doll and accessories shown in the photos are not included. Doll clothing made by, and the pattern designed and published by Dede Kern.
