New Circassienne in Italian Gauze, lined with Indian taffeta; it is trimmed in Gauze, pinched in coques with bouquets of delphiniums, the whole edged with an English Ribbon.  The Coiffure is a toque: long hair surmounted with a toque à l'Espagnole, trimmed with Heron plumes and aigrettes. (1780)

CIRCASSIENNE A LA PROVENÇALE, of Italian gauze, lined with Indian taffeta, very richly draped and trimmed, which is explained in the caption.  This Gown produces the most brilliant effect when it is worn by a Woman tall, well-made, and pretty.
