Serendipity LSDS 1905 Dress, Jacket and Hat

   P1905

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!!

Price = 7.00 USD
