While this is described as a summer dress in 1908 La Semaine de Suzette, it seems rather heavy for the hot summer months! So I am showing it in a dark plaid cotton with a thin wool cape/collar. It looks a lot harder than it is! I carefully re-drafted parts of the original patterns, so it will fit the JN Bleuette body well. It has many possibilities for customization. I show it with soutache on the cape and cuffs, but as shown in the original LSDS picture, the yoke may also be trimmed. A delicate fancy braid could also be used. What is important is that the trim selected be able to curve well.

I prefer this style with a ribbon sash, as it looks so pretty with a tied bow in the back, but I am also providing a pattern for fabric belt, as originally designed. For the cape, pick a fabric that does not fray easily, and be sure and treat all the edges with a fray preventive product before sewing. Stripes or plaids are great with this style. As the skirt is circular, a stripe or plaid looks very interesting as its pattern changes direction around the skirt. It is also pretty to cut the upper sleeves on the bias!

The dressy apron can be made in cotton, wool or silk. It was not intended as work apron, but as a pretty garment to cover good clothing. It is also useful to wear with a simple dress, to attain a fancier ensemble! The trim can be lace, braid or any that is flexible enough to be shaped smoothly around the curved armholes and neckline.

The back opening can fasten just at the neckline, or close all the way to the hem. As this apron flares at the hem, it will be attractive with full skirts. The original illustrations shows what appear to be tucks, but as the pattern didn't call for them, we did not include them.

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.
