I finally made a choice, I bought a piece of silk crepe de chine with the name Anne`s bedroom.

Home in Holland again I searched for this Anne, who was she, what was her story ? She was Anne Fairfax, and she had a rather sad life, losing her mother and sisters. The house were her bedroom was is called Fairfax House, it has its own website www.fairfaxhouse.co.uk .
In her bedroom hangs a sweet picture of Anne, painted in 1742 by Philip Mercier.
I am now trying to get a nice fit on the bodice.
