Robe Manteau avec chapeau de velours! My favorite thing about Bleuette dressing, is the adventure of time travel…Where else can we celebrate the chic 1920's for dolls?
My adaptation of this wonderful LSDS pattern Robe Manteau 1924 will charm you with its simple 20's style, then amaze you with the variety of splendid silks. Elegant, playful, stylish- the perfect combination for *your own* darling Bleuette!
I used all silk for this versatile coat-dress. A beautiful golden jacquard stripe contrasts wonderfully with the antique kimono silk that i used for the appliqué work. It is lined with silk taffeta, and closes off center with semi-precious stone rondelles and thread loops.
Her matching hat is deep coral cotton velvet. Using millinery techniques of wire frame and buckram i created a cloche that will amaze you with its elegance and charm. It is lined in matching silk and embellished with silk flowers. The back brim turns up slightly for a darling jaunty appeal. I finish all of my hats with my Bluebird Textiles label. I sized this costume 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!
