Here are offered two patterns, one for a bodice petticoat and the other for drawers. They have been authentically adapted and simplified a bit from the LSDS patterns. They are easy to make, and look very special when worn, especially the petticoat with its double layer of lace. It looks like a small bustle. Tres chic! .
The bodice does not call for lace at the neckline and sleeves, so it will lay smoothly with a minimum of bulk under Bleuette's dress… although it would be a simple matter to add it if you desire; 1/4" lace would be good.
As underclothing patterns did not change as rapidly as outerwear, these styles are authentic for clothing from 1905 through the mid to late teens. If you don't want a bustle effect, you can simply leave off the top ruffle on the petticoat skirt.
The set in the photos was made from a beautiful sheer lawn in a delicate cream, with lace to match and mauve silk ribbon
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"..
