I've loved teal for so long, I remember being made fun of at work in the early noughtles when answering "teal" to being asked my favourite colour! It didn't help when the men said, "what's teal?" that I said, "a duck".

However the first thing that came to mind for your outfit, thinking of a period influence, was turquoise and eau de nil. I imagine it could look fabulous stood next to gold and silver. Thinking of sheer beauty rather than power.
Trying to coax myself back into making rather than just looking and dreaming!

I too am a fab of teal - my craft room aka the spare room is has a teal chair/curtains and blanket on the day bed :)

I had to look up eau de nil but it does sound nice ...

What colour would you do on the over-robe in?

I have done a practice overdress in teal (from reduced curtains I bought in dunelm) ...
