The left lady features a walking dress. It’s material seems to be gros de naples (a heavy silk with a dull finish), it was often used in carriage and walking dresses as it was fairly sturdy. The back turned cuffs continue to be in vogue but instead of the Vandyke style they come to a point. The skirt of the dress has floral appliques which curve in opposition to the design of the pelerine, bringing the focus of the eye to the waist. The neckline is finished with a lace ruff.
The evening dress is white and pink satin. Pink riband detailing of the skirt taper at the waist enhancing a small waist. The bodice piece is finished off with two small tassels. The sleeves are ‘a la Marie and reminiscent of the Renaissance.
