Xin Nian Kuai Le ! (Mandarin) Gong Hey Fat Choy ! (Cantonese)
Both are happy congratulations for a prosperous New Year. And what could be more auspicious for the new year than a delightful costume for your own darling Bleuette! You will adore this luxurious ensemble for your own darling Bleuette to welcome in the Year of the Pig!
I have been fascinated by the extraordinary festival hats of old China, popular from the late 1800's into the first half of the 19th century. These wonderfully embellished hats were worn by babies and into adolescence for special occasions, especially New Years. Usually given by the maternal grandmother, they are good luck for success in life and protection against evil spirits. Some are shaped like tigers and others represent the other animals of the Chinese Lunar calendar, but no matter what the animal is they are often still called a tiger hat.
The pig is especially lucky for wealth and fertility.
I designed the pattern for this traditional type Chinese jacket and pants. All silk,
I've embellished with fabric piecing, embroidery, and appliqué. Tiny antique silver buttons close the top.
Her fabulous hat was inspired by an authentic antique "pig" tiger hat. It is all silk, and embroidered, padded, appliquéd, and largely sewn by hand. This is a beautiful costume, so appropriate for Bleuette as a deguisement or one of her traditional ethnic costumes. This ensemble is sized for both vintage and reproduction Bleuettes.
Purchase with confidence. My creations will surpass your every expectation of fine materials, design and execution! The purchase of a Bluebird Textiles original will be the highlight of your own darling doll's trousseau!
