The Workers of Paris, Bouquetiere (flowergirl), 1824.
Isn’t she a beauty? I love the bright color of her gown hidden behind a plain, white apron (with a pocket!), her lavish chemisette ruffle, and those cute little shoes!

LURVE the cuffs and collar!

Oooh! An apron with pockets! Don’t see those very often!
Gallerie des Modes, 1778.
OH MY GOD THAT HAT! Love the black/pink combo of the outfit and the color feathers are gorgeous! Also: Boob!

“Oh, teacher! Your unitard is so revealing! Swoon!”

Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1798.
I love this plate because it is showing someone distinctly OUT of fashion! She’s sporting styles that are about 20 to 30 years older here! Pretty sure that the description has something about the theatre in there, so perhaps this is a costume?
Alltheprettydresses confirmed it was a costume! Thank you, m’dear!
Gallerie des Modes, 1782. ”Robe a la Anglaise”
Fetching blue, and I love the colorful apron.
