EXPLANATION OF THE PRINTS OF FASHION.
No. 4. --WALKING DRESS.
Jacconet [sic] muslin high dress, made a walking length, and richly embroidered up the front, round the collar, and round the bottom of the sleeve, which is very long, and rather more loose than they have been worn. The embroidery in front, as our readers will see by the Plate, is divided, and goes up the bosom in a slope on each side. Round cottage mantle of stone-coloured fine cloth, richly embroidered in floss silk of the same colour, and lined with delicate pink.
Frock of plain jacconet muslin, with a demi train; body of amber and white shot sarsnet, made in the same manner as last month, except that the waist is a little shorter; the sleeve, which is of a jacconet muslin, is very full, and is looped up with a floss silk ornament in the shape of a heart ...
[from page 164] The death of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Brunswick, has for the last few weeks obliged our fair fashionables to conform to the Court mourning, which for the first month admitted scarcely of any variety.
