"The Little French Shepherdesses" 1927 style for Bleuette and Rosette
This darling pastoral style was inspired by a ready made deguisement from Gautier Languereau named "Marquise", which was advertised in LSDS in 1927. It reminded me of a shepherdess costume... and I thought how sweet it would be to see Bleuette and Rosette tending a flock of sheep! It features a full gathered skirt. The top has its panniers attached to the lower edge of the bodice. Collar and flared cuffs are outline stitched by hand. It fastens up the front. The bodice bow is echoed in her hair and on her staff.
