La Belle Assemblée
March 1817
“Evening Home Costume”

The print is described in the magazine as follows:

“Frock of white tissue gauze over white satin, ornamented round the border in a novel and unique style with white satin flutings. Opera hood surmounted by a full garland of roses and lilies of the valley. Blush colour or pearl grey slippers; and white kid gloves.

“This dress, though prevalent at the Opera, is also much worn as a home costume, to receive rout company or other dress parties.”
