This First Lady’s Dress Would Probably Look Better on Your Wall

Hey, if you’ve got $40,000 lying around and would like to own a 5 x 9 inch swatch of a Martha Washington dress, then you’re in luck. The piece of silk fabric is just like those on display at Mount Vernon and is up for sale from The Raab Collection in Philadelphia. The family of the first First Lady wore the same fabric for generations before the swatch was given to Warren G. Harding’s alleged mistress as a gift. [Inquirer]
