About Felicity Merriman's Dresses:
Felicity is the eldest daughter of the Governor and his wife. As such, she always has to appear well-dressed and stylish, just like her mother. At the moment she is working on her collection of gowns for the trip overseas where she hopes to be presented at the court of the King and Queen of England.
Felicity is a perfectionist and expects, as such, to always appear perfect to everyone else. Her dresses often help her with this.
