Galerie des Modes, 40e Cahier, 6e Figure

Deshabille a l'Anglaise of taffeta, trimmed flat with a band of gauze edged with a gauze frill; the Camisole is made with basques, edged in the same manner, as is the turned-down collar.  The Coiffure is a peasant cap. (1782)


This plate is from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, 44.1543.  There is a duplicate in green, 44.1544.
