Three part costume for 16" doll by Tonner.
- The striped pierrot jacket with a small peplum is - except the
sleeves-lined, and closes at front with a row of handmade eyes and hooks.
The jacket is "boned" around the central back seam and at front edges with
stripes of plastic, the peplum was part of bodice pieces, not a separate piece.
To the front diagonal seam, around the peplum and around wrist was attached blue
pleated frill, the neckline was filled with a stripe of an ivory chiffon,
which looks like a fichu. The sleeves are one-part, with front seam, as it was
usual on rococo dresses.
- The blue skirt is made from a long stripe of fabric, reachs
to the calves and fastens at back with hooks and eyes. The cartridge pleats are
only on sides and at back. so the skirt is flat at front.
- Under the dress are
the one-piece strapless stays, that are boned with stripes of thin plastic.
The white petticoat, embellished with a long ruffle and lace, and the
bumroll add fullness to the skirt.
- The costume is completed with the sheer embroidered apron, which is
attached to the skirt with a pair of silver rings. It was embroidered with one
thread of mouline.
- The shoes haven't been finished yet, only the black
stockings with the blue garters.
