The outfit is completed with a velvet belt with an enameled buckle and an artificial pearl jewelry set for an evening attire and a muslin chemisette, a fur tippet and a felted "English style" hat trimmed with a vintage osseous brooch and ostrich feathers inspired with a fashion plate from Lady’s Magazine, London Walking Dress, March 1805 for a morning version.
