Description

Shimmery silk and lace make this delicious confection a very special dress indeed! Frou Frou was a ready made dress sold by Gautier Languereau in 1915. Various photos of antique Frou Frou dresses show differences in the ribbon and lace trim, so that leads one to think they may have been made in a cottage industry.

My version is made in a wonderful silk satin, trimmed with silk satin ribbons and real Irish lace. The original mentions imitation Irish lace… any heavy lace would do to give a similar effect. It is necessary to play around a bit with the lace, to see how it will give a good effect with this particular pattern. The lace on the yoke is very attractive if it has definite scallops, as they hang down the bodice prettily. Her fancy hat is a beautiful finishing touch!

Tabliers (aprons) were a very important part of Bleuette's wardrobe. For decades, they occupied a place of importance. La Semaine de Suzette published patterns for dozens of them, for a variety of occupations. This apron was published in 1905, in Bleuette's very first year! We have made it up as a tea apron, in a beautiful barred dimity that came from a dressmaker's stash from the 1890's. It is trimmed with Valenciennes lace, and fine feather stitching. The back ties with silk satin ribbon. It is quite adorable worn over Frou Frou.

Dimity is still made today, so you should be able to make something very close to my version.

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.
