Woman of quality, recently up from her bed,* walking at noon to take the air: the first fruit of a happy marriage makes all her occupation, and augurs a lasting happiness: she is in a large satin pelisse lined and trimmed with sable in two rows, her head is enveloped in a Thérèse of plain taffeta. (1785)
SEBASTIEN MERCIER, Tableau de Paris, 1783
* The amount of shift sleeve showing (and the time of day) reminds me of the demi-polonaise, and I have to wonder if she is wearing a petticoat and not a gown beneath the pelisse.
** A woman who has very recently given birth.
