Uh, yum, what a great idea. Gold fringe trim yes, or maybe even some ostrich feathers around the edge of the bodice. Somewhere there was a thread with pictures of some ostrich feathers. I'll hunt it up.

Thank you for the clarifications. In truth, I really think I like your Fantail Skirt, which is probably what I will end up ordering. :D

I've seen lots of "bodice daggers" in Hollywood and fiction, but I've yet to see anything proving their existence. Anyone have some support for it? I would love to see some, but I haven't come across it.

A pearl handled derringer would be my choice for personal defence, but that comes from doing early Celtic where it wasn't unknown for a woman to wear a sword. :D

I don't have many digitized pictures of some of my more elaborate projects. Perhaps I can get them scanned at some point.

Thank you for the compliment. Most of the items are simple "pot boilers" to make ends meet that I sell on Ebay. :oops:
