Bleuette 1905-1920

Bleuette 1905-1920

The Bleuette clothing was made to fit the Janice Naibert type Bleuette body, (approx 10 and 5/8" (or 27cm) tall with head) but should fit others as well.

All my patterns are authentically designed and tested. They contain excellent instructions so you can make the clothing yourself. A full color cover with several views of the style, clearly typed instructions, and carefully drawn patterns. A complete list of materials needed is provided, along with suggestions for appropriate fabrics and trims. The pattern is contained in a clear plastic sleeve which you can insert into your binder for ease of use and safekeeping. You are buying the pattern or the described item. Any doll, clothing, or accessories pictured are not included.

Casaque Brodee LSDS 1920 
Here is a darling hand embroidered style for dear Bleuette! She is happy as can be in her new ensemble, inspired by the La Semaine de Suzette 1920 style, "Casaque Brodee". Plus, I gave her a darling chapeau too, in an authentic style for the twenties.

As shown, the skirt with elastic waist is made in a vintage cotton fabric, and the embroidered top is made from a vintage linen.

This versatile and easy to make style would be pretty in cottons, silks, or wools... you are only limited by your creativity! It is made special by the chain stitch embroidery in a very modern style for 1920... but then, Bleuette was always dressed tres tres chic!

Costume D'Ete 1908 and Tablier (apron) 
While this is described as a summer dress in 1908 La Semaine de Suzette, it seems rather heavy for the hot summer months! So I am showing it in a dark plaid cotton with a thin wool cape/collar. I carefully re-drafted parts of the original patterns, so it will fit the JN Bleuette body well. It has many possibilities for customization. I show it with soutache on the cape and cuffs, but as shown in the original LSDS picture, the yoke may also be trimmed. A delicate fancy braid could also be used. What is important is that the trim selected be able to curve well.

I prefer this style with a ribbon sash, as it looks so pretty with a tied bow in the back, but I am also providing a pattern for a fabric belt, as originally designed. For the cape, pick a fabric that does not fray easily, and be sure and treat all the edges with a fray preventive product before sewing. Stripes or plaids are great with this style. As the skirt is circular, a stripe or plaid looks very interesting as its pattern changes direction around the skirt. It is also pretty to cut the upper sleeves on the bias!

The dressy apron can be made in cotton, wool or silk. It was not intended as work apron, but as a pretty garment to cover good clothing. It is also useful to wear with a simple dress, to attain a fancier ensemble! The trim can be lace, braid or any that is flexible enough to be shaped smoothly around the curved armholes and neckline. The back opening can fasten just at the neckline, or close all the way to the hem. As this apron flares at the hem, it will be attractive with full skirts. The original illustrations shows what appear to be tucks, but as the pattern didn't call for them, I did not include them.

Costume Tailleur LSDS 1910 
I loved this style as soon as I saw the picture, from a 1910 pattern in La Semaine de Suzette! It clearly harkens back to the French Bebe styles of the 1880's, yet has updated details for the stylish French child of 1910.

I had to re-draft the pattern considerably, and you will notice that I retained the full cut. The illustration in LSDS showed a very slender style, but this full cut looks more childish, and suitable for a young child.

This is a two piece style with a sleeveless underdress, and a jacket to match. One outstanding feature is the little running stitch used to outline some of the jacket seams, and the hem. The jacket also features matching covered buttons!

Robe Anglaise 1915 and Jaquette Kimono 1913 plus Chapeau! 
This sweet ensemble is composed of variations of two La Semaine De Suzette patterns for Bleuette: Robe Anglaise from 1915 and Jaquette Kimono from 1913. I changed the trim and skirt style on Robe Anglaise; the Jaquette Kimono was altered in length and cut to look well over the dress. Then to add a further elegant touch, Mlle Bleuette was given her very chic turban style toque, with its marvelous ostrich flourish! This is a wonderful set to complement the beauty of your Premiere Bleuette!

The dress is trimmed with narrow velvet ribbon, satin ribbon, lace edging and insertion, and little sequins with beads to anchor them in place. Her sash matches her hair bow. The Jaquette is a simple and very graceful style. It is easy and fun to make! Her little toque looks fancy but is also simple to make. It has ribbon twisted around the draped brim, and two sweet bows to finish the back

Robe Empire 1908 and Capulet Bernadette 1905 
This delightful LSDS dress can have various details added to it to make your creation unique. The lapels can be embroidered, embellished with lace or ribbon, or can be cut in a contrasting fabric, as can the cuffs. A couple of rows of narrow ribbon at the hem would also look well.

It has elements that harken back to the Empire period in French history, hence the name. It was updated to be very stylish for the little French girl of 1908.

This cape is a good example of how a totally simple style can be extremely charming when worn. Nothing more than a simple rectangle, when placed on your doll, and arranged, with the tasseled point hanging down in the back, it makes you want to keep looking at it from all angles...there is no side that isn't terribly sweet!

It was named after St. Bernadette of Lourdes, a peasant girl who no doubt wore a cape like this everyday… here it is made fancy by choice of materials.

Serendipity LSDS 1905 Dress, Jacket and Hat 
La Semaine de Suzette 1905 patterns...The dress was intended as a lesson in creativity for the Suzettes, as they were instructed to use pattern pieces from previously published patterns. I call it Serendipity as it allows one to create as one pleases. This dress will look well in soft fabrics, as it has a gathered bodice which should droop gracefully. Cotton, silk, even very fine wool would be pretty. It has lace insertion inset into the top of the bodice, as well as on the skirt. The same lace serves as a sleeve ruffle. If you like, you can substitute a fabric instead of the lace. Silk ribbon is stitched on top of the exposed edges of the lace. It gives a lovely touch, and provides an opportunity to contrast, or emphasize a particular color in a print fabric. The same ribbon in a wider width serves well as a sash.

The adorable jacket is simple to make and adds such a note to an ensemble! It has tremendous style to it from the deep lapels, to the sharply curved sleeves to the flared hem with slits. Make it in a medium weight fabric with body, but not stiffness. Our example is made in a good weight of brushed cotton. It is not lined, rather all the seems are overcast, and the hems are held in place with herringbone stitch. It fastens shut with two hidden snaps, and is finished with decorative buttons. This is an ideal style to use a narrow width of a heavy lace.

The hat was made from wheat straw braid, and as it is a highly individual process to make and shape a straw hat, a pattern is not given, but general instructions and tips to make a hat resembling the one shown are at the end of the instructions.

Altogether these patterns will make a delighful ensemble for your Bleuette!!
