Young Lady in a Camlet Redingote: pink Taffeta Petticoat, Hat à la Bastienne surmounted by Plumes and Aigrettes. (1787)
"One sees ... that one doesn't wear, with redingotes, pelisses or mantelets ... They are never worn. Pelisses and mantelets seem unknown to the English, from whom our Ladies took the fashion of redingotes.
"Some Ladies have already begun to attach piping and liserés to their redingotes. Will they last longer than those attached to men's frock coats? Time will tell!"
