Arlequine Deguisement (fancy dress) costume 1920's

   P1920s-3

ARLEQUINE is a fancy dress costume (a deguisement) for Bleuette, that was advertised in La Semaine de Suzette in the mid 1920's. This is my close interpretation of the style. What a fun, splashy style for a deguisement. I love the bright colors, the hem points on the top, and most especially her Napoleonic hat!

The top is usually seen in a diamond patterned fabric, known as Harlequin. This pattern was designed for a particular fabric. If you use another diamond patterned fabric, the points may not match up, but not to worry, as they didn't match up in the G-L clothing, either! Or, you can make it in a solid colored fabric.

I used very thin, fine velveteen for the skirt and hat, and a good cotton for the Harlequin fabric. Both are completely lined. The shoes and mask are wool felt. The neck and wrist ruffles are English cotton net. The beads are solid glass. The stockings are pure cotton knit. Silk ribbons fasten the waistband of the skirt, and the face mask. The skirt waistband is cut in the Harlequin fabric for a perky accent!

As the skirt is totally lined, there is no worry about the velveteen shedding little fuzzies! The brim of the hat is interlined with crinoline to hold its shape. The instructions are very detailed, guiding you every step of the way for a beautiful finished ensemble!
