On the cover of this Almanac, honor is given to regional headdresses (not fancy dresses):
Boulonnaise with her fine wrinkled, the Alsatian with her large bow of black silk,
Bretonne and her lace  tower lace , the discreet and charming Arlésienne etc ... Finally the reader-city type, probably Parisian, elegant, seemingly natural, yet sophisticated ...

The pages devoted to travesties are more cheerful, warmer. Observe the ingenuity of these little artistic designs and what a joy for children to be a living illustration of the old music with clear voices singing the wildly joyful refrains




See below for the lovely ideas travesties! And if that gave you ideas for your girls? These prints are lovely but the realization sets does not seem simple at all. In this case, follow your imagination, our dolls are demanding, I know, but will be so proud to be Mardi Gras!
