Another yellow court gown.  May I take a moment to point out the most epic feather in the history of feathers. 

Gallery of Fashion, December 1798. 

Ooooh I love both of these!  The yellow lining and accents on the blue is great, and the whole cut and fit of the white is charming!  I especially love the very subtle puffs on her sleeves!

Isn’t it amazing how a bright ribbon can make a simple white gown stunning?

There is no such thing as too many giant feathers stuck to your head.

What a strange bodice and head thing!

Gallery of Fashion, Half Mourning Dress, May 1798. 

I love this look- robe is made of black silk net and the gown below made of white satin.

I’m sorry this scan isn’t great, because this is one of those that I desperately wish was clearer!  The pink gown has some nice back seams and they both have on very unusual bonnet.  And do I spy polka dots?!

The description describes the pink dress as “raven-shaded” and the black trim is made if velvet!

1790s court fashions: WTF is up with you?!

What lovely and unusual colors!

I’m in love with this gown.  I really like the use of red for the unusual trimming, and I think her sleeves are lovely.  Her bonnet is bold and charming and LOOK AT THAT RETICULE!  It is AMAZING!

I really like her bonnet and the adorable little sleeve detail.

That is one heck of a reticule!

I love the color of this gown so much!  Also, the baby wearing only a bonnet is hilarious to me.

Alright.  At some points the muffs just get ridiculous.  A small person could fit in that thing!  It looks like an enormous bee abdomen!

Love the rest of it though- check out the cuffs of her sleeves!
