Fashion 1812

Here we have some beautiful examples of day's worth of dress for March 1812.  A walking and evening gown for the same month.

Taken from the Lady's Magazine and described as follows:


Walking Dress.

A spencer of blue silk, with facings, collar, wings, and cuffs of plush to match. --A bonnet composed of silk and velvet, to agree in color with the spencer.--Feather, the same.

Evening Dress

An evening dress f pink silk, either flowered or plain, trimmed with crape of the same color, and ornamented with small white buttons.--Cap of velvet and lace, trimmed with footing and a flower.

These two gowns to me seem to epitomize the Regency Era in their style.

Until Next Time  Happy Rambles
