Pelisse in the Museum of London and Fashion in Focus 1600-2009

Here is photo of the piped pelisse from the Museum of London website. You cannot use a flash in the museum its-self so I was pleased to find detailed photos on their database.

I saw a similar example of elaborate piping in a new book 'Fashion in Focus 1600-2009' by Grace Evans. It's a really interesting collection held in the Chertsey Museum. www.chertseymuseum.org.uk

It's really breathtakingly beautiful, but definately not a quick project!
The book sounds very interesting, hopefully it's available soon.
Thanks for sharing,
