Fashion May 1816

A Carriage Dress from Ackermann's for May 1816

A cambric slip, tucked very high, and finished at the bottom with a deep flounce of worked muslin.

Over the slip is a robe of the same material, open in front, and trimmed all round with very rich work. The body of the robe is made in the chemiset style, and displays a lace fichu worn underneath.

The long sleeve is ornamented with a bow of blue ribbon, and finished at the wrist by a novel and elegant ruffle.

Head-dress, a cornette composed of plain white lace, profusely trimmed with flounces and blue ribbon.

Gloves and slippers of blue kid.

This dress is likely to continue a favourite, because, independent of its novelty, it is extremely elegant and striking; and both its form and material are peculiarly appropriate to the present season.

We are again indebted to the elegant invention of Mrs. Gill of Cork-street, Burlington-Gardens, for both our dresses this month.

Enjoy!  Until Next time.................
