This sweet ensemble is composed of variations of two La Semaine De Suzette patterns for Bleuette: Robe Anglaise from 1915 and Jaquette Kimono from 1913. I changed the trim and skirt style on Robe Anglaise; the Jaquette Kimono was altered in length and cut to look well over the dress. Then to add a further elegant touch, Mlle Bleuette was given her very chic turban style toque, with its marvelous ostrich flourish! This is a wonderful set to complement the beauty of your Premiere Bleuette!
The dress is trimmed with narrow velvet ribbon, satin ribbon, lace edging and insertion, and little sequins with beads to anchor them in place. Her sash matches her hair bow. The Jaquette is a simple and very graceful style. It is easy and fun to make! Her little toque looks fancy but is also simple to make. It has ribbon twisted around the draped brim, and two sweet bows to finish the back.
COMMENTS: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 email 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.
