Regency Fashion June 1816
I should also note that the marriage of Princess Charlotte had great influence on the fashions at this time.
Evening Gown - June !816 Ackermann's
This dress is composed of white lace, and worn over a rich white soft satin slip; the skirt is finished round the bottom by a deep flounce of lace, and three narrow byas satin tucks, which are surmounted by a wreath of beautiful fancy flowers.
The body and sleeves are peculiarly elegant and novel; a satin front, which forms the shape in an easy and becoming style, is ornamented at each side with a light embroidery of flowers, and finished with bows of ribbon. The sleeve, for which we must refer our readers to the print, is, we think, the most tasteful that has been lately introduced.
The hair is parted so as partially display the forehead, and ornamented with a wreath of flowers.
Necklace, ear-rings and bracelets of diamonds.
White kid gloves, and white satin slippers richly embroidered in coloured silks.
A rich white lace scarf is thrown carelessly over the left shoulder, and partially shades one side of the neck.
Here is a special tidbit just for you! Fashionable colours for the month are, green of all the lighter shades, evening primrose, sapphire blue, pale blush colour, and straw colour.
I do wish I could see the embroidery on the slippers.
Until next time............ Happy Rambles
