Last week you were torn on on the Pingat mantle: as a solitary garment it it was a bit odd, but most of you liked it quite a bit better worn over a dress, so it rated a 6.6 out of 10.
I hadn’t planned to publish this dress for a while yet: I’ve done a lot of late Victorian lately and thought I needed a change. But this published by accident last week and some of you snuck in comments, so it seems unfair to hold out on you.
I know this isn’t the best image of this dress, but even flat, the garment is too distinctive not to have shown you. It’s shocking pink! With black velvet stripes! And a bustier top! And huge puffed sleeves in black velvet! And jet trim!
Not much is known about the dress, but this much I am sure of: the woman who wore this must have had some attitude!
Attitude, yes, but taste? What say the readers?
