Redingote, 1817, from Wiener Modenzeitung. This redingote is heavily trimmed in the military style mimicking "the epaulets and the Hungarian passementerie from the uniforms of the dashing hussars" (Kessler 46). The wrists are trimmed with fur and eight levels of button, cord, and fringe trim. The lady carries a piece of sheet music in her right hand. Her bonnet features and rose and assorted flowers on it.

Costume Parisiens, Women's Redingote, 1821. The crepe hat is trimmed with braided satin and banded with satin folds.

Costume Parisiens, 1822, plate no. 2063. The waist-line has already begun to drop towards a more natural one. The heavy braiding on the blue redingote is in the military style. The bonnet is fairly deep and made of white straw. It is decorated with flowers, ribbon, and feathers. The Elizabethan ruff is still popular, but it is fuller now and extends out further from the neck. A white cashmere shawl covers the lady's shoulders.
