Little black dress: 1807

--From La Belle assemblée--

Every dress in this magazine, from July to December, was white. They might have been hard to keep clean, but they sure were simple and versatile.

Can you imagine the changes that occurred in society for women's dress to change from this in 1807 to this in 1830?

Too bad, really. These are vastly preferable.

They look so comfortable, too. The dresses are like fancy nightgowns, and with simple hairdos. It's like the women were on vacation all the time.
