A January Carol

All ghosts have visited and toasts drunk.
It may be time to make some plans, and as my friend said, they don't have to be big plans, maybe a little plan will do. And stitching a seam from here to there is the littlest and most immediate plan I can think of.
I dove into the boxes and came up with some rayon crepe in my teeth. Shocking pink rayon crepe. Shocking pink is the cyclamen pink Elsa Schiaparelli re-branded in the 1930's. Just the thing for a 1930's meet up with friends in February.
Moire, satin, wool, even perfume can be shocking pink.
Then I remembered that I have a box of shocking stockings and the stars aligned.
My rayon with the stocking box.
I ordered a new pattern from  Lady Marlowe, because ALL the patterns I have from the 30's original and reproduction just wouldn't do.
It's a simple dress, but I'll bling it up a bit and make it long.
Little plans worthy of an Even Tinier Tim. The year turned, time to look up count the stars and rename the consternations.

Ever Your Thimble Servant,
Miss Brilliantine
