Bleuette Clothing Patterns, 1905-1916 Hardcover – 2005

Acclaimed doll costumer Louise Hedrick presents patterns for creating a complete wardrobe of 30 ensembles for this beloved French doll, authentically adapted from the patterns offered in issues of La Semaine de Suzette from 1905-1916. Arranged chronologically within the categories of whitework, lingerie and nightwear; dresses, bonnets and coats; outfits for make-believe (deguisements); and special clothing for the important ceremonies of The Church, the patterns vary in difficulty from the easiest to the most advanced. Completed ensembles are modelled on early Bleuettes and shown in full-colour, with close-up views important details; directions for heirloom sewing techniques and embroidery stitches are included. Ms. Hedrick's patterns are introduced by Bleuette expert Barbara Hilliker's authoritative text, which places the clothing in the context of social and fashion history. Ms Hilliker also offers a basic introduction to the history of Bleuette.

This is one of the most beautifully done books on Bleuette Doll and some of her many clothes patterns. The patterns range from "underpinnings" to "outer wear" plus costumes and accessories like bonnets. The illustrations are clear, the instructions are easy to follow.

I am selling a number of my miniature books as I know that I will never get around to making any of the projects within them.  All the books are in excellent condition.

All books are only available to purchase in the UK.  I am willing to send overseas but please note that there is likely to be additional charges for postage due to their weight.  If you are interested please contact me first.
