Every little French girl needed a Marin, or sailor outfit, hanging in her closet. The sharply detailed collar, cuffs and pleated skirt, plus the rows of stitched on braid were tres tres chic!!
Bleuette and Rosette will don these lovely outfits when they go out with Tante Cecile and Lisette, to visit friends and relatives. They will of course behave beautifully, as they have been taught to do by Maman and the good Sisters at school. (But most certainly their thoughts will wander to the lovely trays filled with sweets and tea cakes!)
The summer version of Atlantic was made from white and navy cotton pique, with a tied neck ribbon. It is finished off with a perky Marin hat, with the word "Atlantic" printed on the silk ribbon band.
These charming sailor outfits can be made in either cotton or fine wool, with many variations or red, white and or blue.
