This delightful ensemble is composed of a matching dress, coat and bonnet. The dress and coat were inspired from patterns from 1912 La Semaine de Suzette. The bonnet was inspired from a 1912 illustration in LSDS, for which no pattern was given, so I drafted them looking at the illustration.

Thin fabrics are best for this clothing. It is shown made in a crisp silk paper taffeta… but it would look equally well in silk Crepe de Chine. It might even look well in a very thin wool, almost gauze weight. The contrasting bands are made of an all over antique lace, but they can also be made in a contrasting silk, perhaps a lightweight brocade or print.

The braid shown is soutache, but any fine, thin braid would be suitable. We used an antique net lace trim, (footing) for the pleated bands on the dress. One could also cut fabric (would be authentic and interesting with pinked edges) and stitch it in place, or use thin silk ribbons. The brim lining is pretty when cut in a contrasting color.

As you can see, this ensemble is open to many, many authentic variations, so It will be possible for you to make the outfit you make, uniquely your own!

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.
