Silk ensemble with evening bodice (front), by Dupret, French, ca. 1867. I don't like using silk because they basically cook the poor silkworms to death (kill them with heat) after they have finished producing for them. However, I am all for using vintage (which this is) or recycled silk, and I like this outfit. I think I'd prefer a diff. color, though, because I am so pale. I prefer contrast.
