Edwardian outfit for crochet Bleuette
Simple Bleuette dresses
I made the drop waist dress, added long sleeves with a puffed cap, and altered the color scheme. I needed to add an additional four rows to the bodice, which just goes to show you need to fit check whenever you crochet; or, at least I do :-)
The hat is from an Annies Attic collection of designer shoes, hats, and bags that I've had for years; Annies Miniature Shoe Society. It is out of print, but if you do a Google search, you may be able to find a used copy.
The boots are based on crochet Bleuette's Mary Jane shoe pattern. I added several rows to the top of the shoe, using two colors to make the boot.
See what fun you can have using the basic patterns and creating your own amazing fashions. Enjoy the crochet!
