Pretty Woman, coiffed with a New Peasant Cap, with an excellent caraco of apple-green taffeta,
trimmed with Italian gauze, also on the petticoat. (1778)
Cap in the new peasant style, leaving the coque or tempérament entirely uncovered, from which escapes a rose held by a ribbon, the favori lying in front of the ear, and two falling curls.
Shoes matching the caraco; large square buckles diminishing the size of the foot; agile heels, always of white, as any other other color is less agreeable: for the men, the red heel is a distinction of etiquette, but it is an advertisement for women.
