The Queen invited me to her salon this afternoon. She was wearing a twelve-foot panier along with the other ladies.
I had a little mishap last week when I received a twelve-foot panier [in circumference] instead of the fashionable six-foot we have in the court. Being as I wasn't going to wear my winter paniers with my spring clothes, I was forced to wear it since my other spring paniers were still on their way. I was quite embarrased at mass that Sunday.
