– Pelisse Cloth.
A lightweight woollen twill fabric found in Regency merchants’ pattern books specifically for fashionable ladies’ long walking outfits.
For this project the fabric was Custom dyed to match the trim. The cape and body are also lined with Scarlet Superfine Shalloon…
Fashionable as a cool, practical, practical fabric for Summer wear, ours is genuine vintage raw cotton hand woven in china. The variations in both yarn and weave lend it a character which modern cottons do not posses.
Here used for a fashionable summer riding habit with Hussar detail.
Winter doesn’t respect gender; Scarlet Broadcloth was a popular choice for girls’ and ladies’ cloaks for wear in inclement weather.
