So much fun! The upper sleeve is particularly lovely. Does the parasol function? And do you know if this was a favored color of the 1890s? Just curious. You did a lovely job!

The parasol does function! I know they loved teal, and in the books the character talks about wearing only "happy colors" so I thought it would be good. Thanks!

Well done, Peabody! You look ready to let Emerson accompany you into a nice stuffy tomb .. ;)

I love Amelia Peabody! While I never imagined her wearing that color in the desert, I now cannot imagine her without it! The matching parasol is perfect & people would never expect the prodding from such a lovely weapon. Emerson would approve, I'm
