Welcome any comments on my idea for a new outfit...
I'm making an 1812 pelisse out of black twilled silk with a pink silk lining with a geometric pattern of green squares and an orange center. This same pink silk will line a black top hat being made for me with a few pink flamingo feathers being added to the decorations. The feathers were picked up by a friend who worked at a zoo. If anyone asks me....they're not REALLY flamingo feathers, I'm just shedding :laugh:
