Cool spring breezes make a jacketed suit essential
for chic seasonal dressing ! You will love this La Semainne de Suzette pattern of 1912 Costume Tailleur (
tailored suit ) I used an exquisite silk/wool woven plaid- soft as butter and in the most natural hues from cream to light brown.
The dress has a pleated skirt with hand embroidery at the hem. The bodice is crisp 100% linen in a fabulous muted shade of robin's egg blue. There is a hand embroidered floral motif at the front done in the very same shade.
The jacket has two layers of collar and cuffs- the first being linen and the second, hand- embroidered silk. I remained faithful to the original pattern and included the geometric motif on the jacket front with couched floss.
Her beautiful Spring bonnet is Swiss hat braid, unlined and trimmed with a silk bow and vintage roses and mulberry rosebuds. 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!
