Regency pelisse

  The mid-calf length pelisse (a type of women´s regency coat) was inspired by period fashion plates, esp. the fashion plate from Lady´s Museum, February 1801. The pelisse is made of thin wool lined with linen, the decorative trimmings are velvet as at the fashion plate from Costume Parisien, 1798. The pelisse is fastened with hooks and sewn eyes and in the high waist is tied with a twisted cord with tassels. The accessory is a fur tippet of silver fox fur, such tippets is possible to see at many period fashion plates from the end of 18th century and around 1800.
