October is clearly the month for walking at Ackermann's
An evening primrose-coloured French sarsnet petticoat, trimmed round the bottom with a double border of clear muslin, drawn full with a narrow ribband of corresponding colour to the petticoat; high body of jaconot muslin, with reversed drawings; long sleeve, drawn to correspond. A silk ruff.
A silk net handkerchief-sash, tied in streamers and small bows behind.
A Shipton straw bonnet, tied under the chin with a net handkerchief crossing the crown, and trimmed with a band of the same silk net.
Sandals of evening primrose-coloured kid. Gloves to correspond.
Very smart. And more sandals.
Until next time
