Vol. 3, No. 20
Fashions for April, 1808

Fig. No. 3.--A plain white dress of real French cambric, made with a long train, and enriched round the bottom with a superb border of sun-flowers in needle work, and between every flower is inlet a rich footing of point lace--these flowers may be worked in colours or in white, and give a beautiful effect either way; the body of the dress is also made a degree longer than is usually worn; the back and bosom high, to wrap simply over, and fastened with a small diamond clasp, and trimmed all round to correspond with the bottom of the dress; the sleeves are made in the bishop style, of a much lighter texture than the dress, and are made separate from the dress. A robe pelisse of a delicate pink, pea- green, lilac, or sky-blue, lined throughout with white sarsnet, and trimmed all round to with a wreath of green ivy leaves. The hair is formed into tasteful curls in the front of the head, with a narrow band of pink sarsnet, bound round the forehead, and shews transparently through the hair. A rich white lace handkerchief thrown carelessly over the head, and tied under the chin; gloves white kid, and shoes pea-green.
