Pearl Grey Silk
Mary Ann is modeling an ensemble I made for a friend, which is based on an outfit worn by the fictional Hitty in the book Hitty – Her First Hundred Years.
In the story, Hitty is delighted to have a “Pearl Grey Silk, made in true Quaker fashion, with a fine white fichu crossed in front, lawn cap, and all for First Day …”
I bought silk lining fabric to make the dress, but the dress bodice lining, fichu and cap are made with one of the pretty hankies in the Box of Treasure sent to the Quimper Hittys by a friend, (click this link to see her blog).
I love the way the outfit turned out. Mary Ann is happy for it to go to a friend, but has a little wistful hope that I can make another similar for her….
