 The beautiful Sophie waiting for her gallant. She is in a Fourreau à l'Anglaise etc.

"Apart from all the gowns that ladies wear, they still put on the very long fourreaux. It is not permitted to make them as formerly, in a silk fabric or colored linen; they can only be made of white linen or plain white muslin; those of muslin are still very rare. One dares sometimes to wear them over pink, blue, green, or violet transparens; but the best thing, and the most fashionable, is to wear them without transparens."

Le Magasin des Modes, 20 August 1787
