Country French

Made for Mari 31.5" Himstedt by CarlaC

Beautiful Mari is modeling "Country French," a classically styled one-of-a-kind ensemble.  This outfit was created to fit Mari and her friends of similar size.   

Mari's jumper is made from a combination of a fanciful red toile and a dainty red calico.  The fully lined bodice features french tucks accented by cream top-stitching.   The button-down toile skirt is trimmed with the contrasting calico.

A sweet mix of antique mother-of-pearl buttons grace the opening of the dress,

Mari's unique camp hat is reversible to the opposite fabric combination.  There is a bit of elastic in the band for the perfict fit.  The accent flower is pinned on for versatility - she can even wear it in her hair when she isn't wearing her hat!   

This romantic color scheme is just perfect for Valentine's day. 
 In fact, the Country French theme is stylish all year long.  You can see that Mari fits right into my room in this outfit :) .

Mari's eggshell-colored petticoat is trimmed in a gorgeous vintage eyelet.  The wide collar is adorned with red silk ribbon roses and red floss leaves to tie in with the toile jumper.  Delicate vintage mother-of-pearl buttons are sewn to the mock placket, and a red silk ribbon bow accents the waistline.

For added fullness, the petticoat has a ruffle at the bottom. The petticoat looks like a sweet nightgown when worn alone.

You are bidding on the jumper, hat, floral pin 
and petticoat only - my lovely Mari, her boots, and
background props are not included.  This outfit
was handmade by me, CarlaC, in my cozy,
smoke-free home.  To learn more about my
