Fashion Friday

Ackermann's for May 1817

A WHITE lace dress over a blush coloured satin slip. The dress is disposed round the bottom of the skirt in festoons, which display a little of the slip; each festoon is ornamented with a bouquet of blue-bells, pinks and rose-buds. The festoons are surmounted by a rollio of intermingled pink and white satin. 

We refer to our print for the form of the body, which is novel and tasteful. The sleeve is very short and full; it is finished at the bottom by quillings of blond. 

The hair is dressed in a plain braid across the face, and a few loose ringlets at the sides. The hind hair forms a tuft, which is concealed by the head-dress, a high wreath of fancy flowers. 

Pearl necklace. White kid slippers and gloves.

This reminds me of a little girl's party dress.  The headdress makes her look top heavy. You won't catch my heroines wearing that!
