What a Regency Lady Might Wear to Gunter’s

This is one of my favorite regency era fashion prints.  I love the contrast between the yellow gown and the black spencer.

Description under the hand colored fashion print translated from French to English:

“Hat from Naples split on the sides.  Spencer in velvet with bursts in satin.  Dress has flounces.”
