A stylish carriage dress is featured in an 1832 issue of La Belle Assemblée. The dress is composed of moiré; the background is a dark dust colour, printed in a zig-zag pattern of brown and rose colour. The dress features a high waistline with amadis sleeves.
The double pelerine has ruffles edged with a green satin rouleau with a matching collar. The pelerine is rounded behind, and cut in ends, which cross under the center in front.
A charming bonnet of rice straw, trimmed under the brim with lilac gauze ribbon is included. A blond lace ruche separates the bows on each side, and is attached under the chin by a knot of ribbon. A bouquet, composed of three lilac ostrich feathers tipped with white, is placed in front of the hat crown. This delightful outfit is accessorized with flat black satin lady’s slippers.
