Pink underdress with sleeves

  By completing the pink silk underdress  with detachable muslin sleeves trimmed with French knot embroidery and tulle openwork, is created the color dress with white sleeves, as can be seen at many period fashion plates and paintings. The dress is completed by a brooch with hand painted enamel silhouette. The hairdo is decorated by a silk crochet hairnet with glass beads made according to the fashion plate "Costume Parisien" ("Journal des dames et des modes"), an 9 (1800), 279.
