A board to start thinking about the series as a whole.
La Belle Assemblee, Riding Costume, August 1812. Made of ladies habit cloth or Moria Louisa Blue, trimmed down each side of the front with Spanish buttons, the waist rather long with three small buttons on the hips; a short jacket full behind, the front habit fashion with small buttons up the neck and a row of small buttons on each side of the breast; a lapel thrown back from the shoulders and trimmed with Spanish buttons, has a most elegant effect and gives a graceful finish to the dress.
"Ball Dress: a round Circassian robe of pink carpe , or gossamer net, over a white satin slip, fringed full at the feet; a peasant’s bodice of pink satin or velvet, laced in front." From janeaustensworld... Look how close the skirt clings to the body. The artist wants you to see every natural curve from the bosom down. Very neoclassical and very sexy.
