Bleuette's trousseau includes many costumes for masquerade parties. During this era and earlier, these fancy events were held not for Halloween or Mardi Gras, but as an elegant affair for children of means. This fun, fantasy costume inspired by the Middle East will delight with its sparkle and luxurious fabrics.
Her blouse is a fine jacquard weave silk with a subtle pattern. The back closes with snaps. I used royal blue silk duopion for the contrast on her billowy pants. The vest is hand-beaded vintage velveteen lined in silk.
The turban, the turban! Iridescent silk, lined with silk and embellished with a bauble of semi precious-ness set in sterling silver.
Her fabulous slippers are genuine suede. I think it would be fun to accessorize this wonderful costume with some fancy gold bracelets and/or necklaces.
This ensemble was sized to fit both repro and vintage Bleuettes.
NOTE: doll is not included
