Your incredible antique Bebe deserves an incredible toilette, don't you agree? Maybe she has an antique frock, or you are creating one for her, perhaps? Certainly she will need a set of just the right undergarments, n'est pas? Today I am presenting a truly special such set - this one attributed the Maison Jumeau, based on the workmanship and quality of the pieces.
The set is comprised of two pieces: a set of split drawers, and a combination chemise/petticoat, both trimmed with deep flounces of lace and lace beading threaded with silk ribbons. The base fabric of firmly woven creamy cotton muslin, with the skirt of the petticoat cartridge-pleated into the waist. . All the sewing is hand-done. Special to me are all the tiny brass hooks and worked loops used as closures. Such hooks are extremely hard to find today... if you wanted to have some to make an authentic costume, you would have to use poor substitutes. The temptation to harvest these was strong, but I resisted!
These undergarments are for a larger doll - likely in the range of 22" (56 cm). The length of the chemise/petticoat is 14" (36 cm) including the lace trim. the length of the front of the pantaloons, including the lace, is 8 1/2" (21.5 cm). the waist size is 12 1/2" (32 cm). both pieces are in excellent condition.
