Bleuette ~ 1905 Capeline pour les Sorties du Soir

Capeline pour les Sorties du Soir – a cape for going out in the evening. The pattern states that it is an “informal headcovering, but extremely useful”. It’s a very simple crochet pattern using basic stitches.

For my Bleuette, Nadine, I made the capeline up in cotton crochet thread. The pattern suggests that if the “ball” stitch around the hood seems to complicated for a younger girl, she could use the “lace” trim (shell stitch) that was used around the rest of the cape instead, and then trim the left side of the hood with a ribbon bow. I chose to do the “ball” stitch AND a silk ribbon rosette on the left side of the hood.
