Walking Dress, c. 1790-1, from Journal
de la Mode et du Gout.
June 15, 1790, Plate 2. Issue no. 7.
Left: Walking Dresses, 1797, from Nicholas Heideloff's Gallery of Fashion, 1794-1802. The lady on the left wears a white gown with a tartan belt and band around the hem. She nestles her head down in to her generous brown fur muff. Her friend wears a rose print gown topped by a warm shawl with the same colors of the dress banding the edges. The winter landscape might explain the small feathers on their hats.
Right: Walking Dress with Pelisse, 1798, from Nicholas Heideloff's Gallery of Fashion. This pale purple pelisse would be a joy to snuggle into, with its gold cord and grey fur trim. The dress is open enough to see a white muslin gown beneath it with an elaborate lace collar. The ruby turban is of plum velvet with a curving black plume.
