    I agree with everyone else – these are so pretty, the colour is wonderful. Any lady, in any century, would be proud to own and wear. Imagine Scarlett wearing these under her green curtain dress. So lovely! You are an incredibly talented lady.

      Thank you. Close up I see a lot of stuff to improve on ‘next time’… For now, they serve their purpose. :)
