Nadine is wearing the 1909 Robe de Toile, or “Linen Dress” along with the 1905 Chapeau de Pâques or “Easter Hat”. The dress has a “large cape collar” that is embroidered in a flower motif design. The color combination used by Agnes Sura on her Bleuette dress featured on the cover of the Summer/Fall 2002 issue of Doll Costumer’s Guild inspired me to use a similar color combination on my own.
New Irish linen was used for the dress and chapeau and plaid silk for the bias trim. The chapeau has ruched vintage ribbon around the outer edge. The cocarde is from silk with hand dyed ostrich and emu feathers.
