Complete Trousseau

Using Martha Nichol's pattern book, "My First Bleuette" I have created 8 different costumes for your own extraordinary doll! Starting with underclothes and sleepwear, there are outfits for play, dress-up, visiting, and winter weather.  All pieces are designed to accommodate both vintage and reproduction Bleuettes.

  • Visiting Dress : under slip is crisp cotton batiste, edged in Val lace. vintage cotton print dress with Valencienne cotton lace. Hand painted buttons with hand worked button holes. Antique lace and silk ribbon belt.  Matching chapeau is Swiss paglina hat braid.
  • Apron :  100 % cotton with vintage cotton contrasting pocket , matching hair bow
