Regency Fashions: Walking and Morning Dress

Published in the April 1814 edition of The Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions and …, these two elegant gowns feature the familiar high waist and clean lines of the era.  The ruffled collar of the walking gown and ermine lined cape is no doubt in deference to the oft patchy weather of April.  Note the tiny footstool and delightfully mini chaise lounge in the morning gown plate.
