Lyra Silvertongue's second-best dress was a dress that Lyra had at Jordan College. Once she saw the gyptian Piet van Poppel decorating his boat with a rose-and-lily pattern at Castle Mill boatyard and wanted to copy it onto her dress. She tried painting it until she realised it would it would look nicer embroidered. After getting frustrated with the task, she threw the dress away and had to explain its absence to Mrs Lonsdale.[1]
