Item description for Bleuette Clothing Patterns, 1905-1916 by Louise Hedrick & Barbara Craig Hilliker...

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 (dquisements); 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 modeled on early Bleuettes and shown in full-color, with close-up views of 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bleuette Clothing Patterns, 1905-1916?

Bluette  Jul 31, 2008
It was a very perfect delivery and I am very satisfy with the book. I know the book before I purchased it. I have seen it by a friend and therefor I want to have it.
Study, look and create Bleuette's wardrobe  Oct 7, 2005
The book starts with a little history of the doll from French and great vintage pictures are added (through out the book) to show how things were back than and there are instructions how to make the right embroidery stitches that were used. Patterns are actual size and easy to trace. Instructions are easy especially when you're an more experienced sewer but also the novice can have an easy start sewing because there are all kinds of patterns to find in this book. From very easy to complicated (more pattern pieces, pleats to make, put trimming on etc.)you will always find the right pattern to start with.
The pictures of the fashions to make, are the size of one page - 9"x12" - so all kinds of details are there to see. What can I say but this is a wonderful addition to your doll(pattern) books and I'm sure you'll love it! Good for hours and hours of reading and sewing pleasure.
excellent patterns  Sep 6, 2005
Louise uses the original French patterns and sews them as they were meant to be done. Her work is inspiring.
