Title: 1812 ladies fashion
Post by: on January 23, 2009, 11:59:18 PM
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:
