A Walking Dress for Autumn
This is definitely a scene I need to write one of these days!
Here is the description provided by our favourite magazine.
A round robe of fine cambric or jaconot muslin, ornamented with a double flounce of French needle-work at the feet, under an open pelisse, composed of French grey sarsnet, lined with the salmon colour; the upper part of the sleeve lashed with satin of corresponding colour, fulled and let in.
A full ruff of needle-work and a small French handkerchief round the neck.
French hat of the satin straw, with a quilling of net round the rim; three rows of grey satin ribbon, plain or quilled, round the crown; and a full plume of white feathers, edged to correspond.
Slippers, blue or red morocco. Gloves, York tan.
It happened one Christmas. If you have missed the preorder contest which ends soon, check out my Facebook page or go to my website for details.
Until next time……...
