I love, love, love the works of French painter James Tissot and created "Calais", inspired by the painting below. It comes with a bodice, gloves, glitchpants, polonaise bustle with plaid skirt, matching underskirt, and feather stole. You may find it at my Regency and Steelhead shops, as well as my shops on the Aethernet...Tissot's paintings appeal to me because of his care in rendering the London society fashions of the time. His favorite muse and model was his love, the beautiful, red-headed divorcee Kathleen Newton, who died from consumption at the age of 27. It touched me that after her death, he put down his brushes and left London...
