Parisian Walking Ensemble circa 1912
DESCRIPTION: This lovely pattern set is circa 1912... the time period of Titanic, and also the first season of Downton Abbey. Olivia is dressed exquisitely for taking a stroll about fashionable Paris. Her stylish narrow skirt and bodice are ornamented with braid, beads, lace and fine tucks. The waist is accented with a beaded leather belt. A matching sleeveless jacket complements with its trims and narrow elongated shape.
The wired buckram hat is smoothly covered with fabric, and trimmed with lace, ribbons, and ostrich and nagoire feathers.
Her pretty underclothing is cut narrow and trim to properly support the style.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PATTERN: The patterns include: drawers, chemise, petticoat, dress, jacket and hat. This pattern comes packaged in a clear plastic sheet protector so you can insert it into a binder. The front cover of the pattern shows several views in color. There are very clear directions and neatly drawn patterns to help you every step of the way! This clothing was made to fit the Gildebrief French Fashion doll body (which makes up into a doll about 12" tall with the head) but should fit other similar size French Fashions as well, wth possibly minor adjustments.
My doll is Olivia, an exquisite Simon and Halbig 1159 made for me by Barbi Kantor-Goldenberg. The 1159 was originally made for the French market (as well as for the German market) and has been found on antique French lady bodies. Hence my consideration that she can be regarded as a later French fashion doll.
