One of the original ideas for the dolls’ trousseaux was to follow a white, pink and blue theme for all outfits. However, this was determined too restrictive for designers. After the constraint was lifted, this housecoat was made from a piece of the lime-green silk wall-covering in Queen Elizabeth’s bedroom at the Palais du Quai d’Orsay, Paris.
