Bleuette 1931-1940

Bleuette 1931-1940

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.

Au Jardin 1932 and Elegant Tablier plus Morning cap 
Au Jardin is a sweet style from Gautier Languereau in 1932. I have interpreted it in two different floral prints, the red is new cotton fabric, and the green is vintage cotton fabric dating from the thirties. Both dresses are trimmed around the waist and lower sleeves with vintage braid.

The Elegant Tablier was a "new" style for the tablier, and it features a bodice with gathered skirt, open all the way down the back. It is trimmed with lace at the neck, armholes and hem. (prior to this, the G-L "elegant" tablier style was two panels front and back in a "chasuble" shape).I made it in a soft cotton with rows of drawn thread work, and trimmed with cotton laces. Its shape complements the cut of the dress.

Her morning cap (intended so that little girls would present a neat appearance at breakfast, before they had time to arrange their hair) was made in the same fabric as the tabliers, and it is trimmed with silk ribbons too.

When selecting fabrics for your version of this style, soft florals are good for the dress, trimmed with colorful braid. The tablier looks well in any fancy cotton fabric... dotted Swiss was used originally, and it would be so pretty! The cap will probably look best in a soft cotton or silk.

Bleuette's Basic Pattern Set - 12 patterns to Mix and Match 
This pattern set has twelve patterns. Ten are G-L styles,and two are from La Semaine de Suzette. You can make them as shown, OR, almost all of the pattern pieces are interchangeable. This means all the sleeves work with all the bodices, all except one of the collars can be switched, and the skirts can be paired with different bodices!

You will notice when looking at the patterns, that even though they were originally sold from between 1927 and 1958, that they all have a bodice with a natural waistline, a gathered or pleated full skirt, various set in sleeves and a variety of collars!

This is a great pattern set, as purists can make them as shown for an authentic re-creation; while those who want to play a bit more will find it easy to create their own unique styles!

This pattern set is contained in a blue paper folder... There is a full color cover sheet, and three sheets in full color show all twelve styles individually too! Each pattern has its own set of clear instructions. And it will be easy to use the different pattern pieces to vary the styles... 
Price: 30.00 USD

Reception and Favori, Gautier Languereau 1930's 
I have named this sweet ensemble "A Stroll in the Park" as my Bleuette looked all ready for a fashionable promenade. Accompanied by her poodle, Valeray, Madeleine Sophie steps out confidently, her little French heart sure that she can more than hold her own!

Her attire starts with her underclothing: a pair of drawers and a straight "Empire" style chemise. They are made of voile and trimmed with matching antique lace. I gave the chemise a center back opening which ties closed with silk ribbons. (This makes it a lot easier to take on and off).

Then her dear little dress: RECEPTION, a G-L style from 1931. It has a slightly dropped waist bodice, and a two tier skirt that is cut on the curve. It is sewn smoothly to the bodice, and is finished with a silk ribbon sash. The circa 1930's pink voile print is lined throughout with white cotton voile as it is so sheer. All the edges have a narrow binding of white voile. This makes it easy to finish the edges and provides good shape.

And her FAVORI Coat! I made it in a very vintage eyelet pique, and the collar and cuffs are formed of vintage Viyella (a soft wool/cotton). The pink of her dress just shows though the little eyelet holes.

Versatile, easy to make, this style is a real classic with delicate, feminine lines. I am sure you will enjoy making it! Many other fabrics are suitable... light silks, various cottons, and thin wools will all look well!

Reunion Intime 1933 G-L 
This charming set is composed of a blouse with a box pleat at the lower sleeve edge, and a sleeveless dress which features a scoop neck, and a pleated skirt set unto a bodice with a scalloped lower edge.

The original GL dress was of various small prints… with a white blouse. A note about the blouse - I drafted the sleeve on the small side, like the original. Our modern sensibilities generally prefer a puffier sleeve, and you can enlarge it if you like of course. I chose to retain the original appearance of a smaller sleeve and a loose fitting dress.

Yo-YO - Gautier Languereau 1933 
What a pretty, feminine little dress! It has small tucks releasing from the shoulders both front and back. A low leather belt defines the hips. Jaunty tassels hang from the embroidered collar. It closes in the back with two buttons and long worked loops.

A pattern is not given for the hat, as it is crocheted. However, it should be cloche shape, whether crocheted or straw, and the trimming is two more of the tassels.

Be sure to select a medium to light weight fabric which will hold a crease well, as the tucks are ironed into narrow pleats which reach to the hem. The sleeve bindings and the collar can be a slightly heavier weight. 
Price: 7.00 USD
