You will adore the elegance of this "arlequine" costume as well as its playfulness. As pictured on page 85 of the Couturier/Odin catalogue, "son trousseau d'origine Gautier-Languereau",  I have captured this charming "deguisement" style with vintage and current textiles using couture sewing techniques.
   The mastery in this piece lies in the careful ribbon work that i employed to create this fabric. Starting with white silk ribbon, i custom dyed to achieve this vintage-y pumpkin orange. The ribbons were then woven in this harlequin pattern, and the top lined with a fine black cotton. Trimmed with gold bells that jingle , the top closes at the back with metal hooks and thread eyes. 
   The other extraordinary part of this ensemble is the napoleon hat of linen and cotton. The pom-pom decorations are mohair and cotton floss. It is finished inside with the Bluebird Textiles couture label. The matching skirt was created from black linen, and  closes at the back with hook and eye. 
 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! 

 Note: doll, socks, shoes are not included.
