The classic sailor suit is always in style for play, school and for dress-up as well. The earliest versions in La Semaine de Suzette have the most exquisite tailored detailing as shown in this darling rendition.
Pale rose and white contrast daintily with the crisp black linen skirt. The hand embroidered details were executed with silk floss. Woven stripe cotton jacket, linen cuffs and collar, and a vintage grosgrain tie. The antique brass button has an appropriate nautical motif! In keeping faithful to the original pattern, I embroidered the silk plastron with silk floss dots. The effect is striking as well as utterly charming.
Unlike most of the brimmed sailor hats we see, this version is in the "Basque" style of beret. A hand embroidered anchor graces the front. I finish all of my millinery creations with the Bluebird Textiles label. I sized this ensemble to fit both vintage and reproduction Bleuettes.
Purchase with confidence. My creations will surpass your every expectation of fine materials, design and execution! The purchase of a Bluebird Textiles original will be the highlight of your own darling doll's trousseau!
