"Dinner Dress" - 1828 Exquisite!

This loose sheet says "Plate 28, Vol.XII" and "No. 71 of R. ACKERMANN'S REPOSITORY of ARTS (?) Pub. Nov.7 1828" in very fine print. But we are really here to look at this marvelous outfit. The puffed sleeves covered with sheer fabric, the scalloped and tasseled neckline, and that hat...that amazing hat. Enjoy!
