~Regency Wednesday~ 1815 Evening Dress

From Ackermann's Repository, May 1815: 

Pink satin frock, richly ornamented round the bottom with deep border of garnet yewer, headed with a festoon of flowers; the body and sleeves trimmed with double rows of white stain; a small border of flowers let in on the shoulder; a full plaiting of blond lace round the neck. Gloves white kid; shoes to correspond. The hair crossed, with full curls on the forehead and in the neck.* 

*Taken verbatim from Ackermann's Repository, 1815, page 297-8.
