Morning Dress. Figures 29 and 30, 1794. I love this image of ladies breakfasting with a silver tea service in their white morning gowns trimmed with cherry ribbon. On their heads they wear caps also trimmed with cherry ribbon. The lady on the left reads her morning correspondence, in a gown that features a short, cozy jacket with lace trim over a petticoat with matching lace trim.



HEAD-DRESS. Toupee and side hair frizzed, and thrown into large curls; bandeau of white and black riband, cut out and formed into a wreath of flowers; one black and two white ostrich feathers placed in the front. Plain chignon, falling very low upon the back. Petticoat of clear lawn, embroidered in black. Robe a la Turque of black taffeta, with black braids on the back. Long sleeves. Handkerchief of Italian gauze, put within the robe. Gold festoon necklace and ear-rings. White glove and shoes, embroidered in black.
