Regency Fashion June 1815
White satin pelisse, richly ornamented at the feet with clusters of leaves made in white twilled sarsnet, headed with tull; open fronts, trimmed to the bottom of the waist with a superb shell trimming of white satin ribbon and tull; loose unconfined sleeve, with corresponding trimmings at the hand.
Hat composed of white satin and tull, with a plume of feathers of the Pomona green.
Half-boots of similar colour. Gloves en suite.
I have the feeling that this lady has been waiting quite some time to be collected for her carriage ride. Or did she just hear a knock at the door? Either way, it is very pretty.
And in case you are feeling energetic, here is some needlework from the same edition you might like to have a go a in your spare time.
Until next month.....
