The Lady’s Museum, Morning Dress, September 1801. 

I am in love with the bodice of the gal on the left.  It almost looks like a shirtwaist or something!  And her parasol looks so teeny!

Ackermann’s Repository, Promenade Dresses, August 1809. 

Such lovely outfits!  Love the crossed detail in the back!

(and quizzing glass!)

PS- these are big images!  Open them in new tabs to get the full glory!

Ackermann’s Repository, Promenade Dresses, July 1810. 

Nice selection of shoes and parasols!

La Reunion, 1827.

Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1823. 

I’m really loving this outfit- the ribbon trim, the wonderful sleeves, and that parasol!

Lady’s Magazine, Summer Promenade Dress, June 1825. 

What a charming outfit!  Such interesting and unusual trim!

Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1823. 

I have to admit some confusion about this dress.  Her sleeves- is that the fabric or is there some sort of trim on them?

Gallery of Fashion, October 1797. 

I love the pairing of the yellow gown and the blue gloves, and that brown bonnet is adorable!

Ackermann’s Repository, Walking Dress, October 1809. 

I love her matching shawl and umbrella!

Lady’s Magazine, 1849. 

The fabric of the dress on the left is really stunning!
