Posted by muhammad nasrudin

Simple robe à la sultane, such as is actually worn without a grand parure.  This gown is open in front and allows the whole petticoat to be seen; in the back it has the form of an untied polonaise and descends almost to the ground like the Lévite.  Hat coiffure with a cap of Gauze invented by Mlle Bertin. (1782)
