This shows what fashions were like during the July Revolution. It reminds me of my novel Madame Royale.

Fashions of 1831 July%2B1831%2Bfashion%2B02
To quote:
A dress composed of gros de Chine; the colour, a new and singularly beautiful shade of yellow. The corsage is plain behind, and disposed in crossed drapery in front; it is cut something higher than usual, and displays very little of the chemisette, which is of blond lace. Beret sleeves of moderate width, and very short, with long sleeves, a la Reine, over them, composed of white gaze de Soie, and terminated by a ruche of blond net. The head-dress is a toque composed of very dark violet crape. A bouquet of white ostrich feathers, with a knot of ribbon at its base, is placed under the brim on the left side, and two larger feathers attached to the right side of the crown droop to the left over the brim. The jewellery should be of burnished gold.
