Russia meets Scotland in my plaid interpretation of the LSDS pattern Robe Russe (Russian Dress) of 1915. Clearly the Russian influence is the mock side closure at the front. I embellished the front with hand embroidered dots, evoking the line of precisely placed buttons. The cream bodice is pinwale corduroy, with tailored linen cuffs. Tiny gathers are a delicate detail sewn at the shoulder. The back closes with an antique enameled button and hooks and eyes. The fabulous pleated skirt is 100% wool .
Under her graceful dress Bleuette wears a pair of warm knit gaiters to keep her delicate ankles toasty!
Included is her cotton velveteen beret with matching plaid band. It is lined in silk and sports scarlet silk ribbons at the back and a wool pom-pom on top. I finish all of my hats with the Bluebird Textiles couture 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!
