Iris Sibirica’s clothes were as exotic as her name. Blessed with a Spring complexion she could wear clothes of any colour and indeed her wardrobe was extensive. Most of the time she wore a pale green underskirt with overskirts or panels of different colours and gauzy blouses of pale and contrasting colours. The overskirts were invariably richly coloured with a velvety texture picked out in gold braid. Some of the more exotic ones looked as if they had raised embroidery work on them. A blouse of palest yellow would be contrasted with a pinky bronze. Sometimes she wore dresses of one colour, deep and vibrant, with frilly edges, fashioned from luxurious velvets and chenilles or pale and floaty made from delicate lace or voiles with the just the hint of a colour. Whatever she wore she was beautiful.
