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
