MIRROR OF FASHION
FOR FEBRUARY, 1815
[from page 114]
Dress of Crimson Sarsnet, short sleeves of black velvet, slashed with crimson, black fringe round the neck and bottom of the gown, black silk cord round the waist; ends rather long, with tassels. The Stockings are now work with open clocks; Shoes, colour of the dress. The Hair in full ringlets on each side [of] the face, with a simple wreath of flowers round the head. Necklace and Ear-rings of pearl. This is considered a most elegant and becoming dress; and is admirably adapted for this season of the year; and there can be no doubt will be justly appreciated by all our leading belles of fashion.
A Pelisse of Apple Green Kerseymere, vandyked with satin of the same colour, fringed round the bottom; hat and feathers to correspond; boots and gloves of green kid.
