Promenade Dress, Ackermann’s Repository, Oct. 1814
I would love a pair of her sandals! I’m also quite fond of the crossed fichu across her chest. Is that spotted fabric I see gathered as a trim?

Embroidered promenade dress, Met, c. 1862-64
I may be so bold as to say that, off the top of my head, this is my favourite dress at the Met!
Promenade Hat (French), Met Museum, 1865-70
Note the short hem for keeping your dress safe from sand and water on the beaches, and the unusual embroidery on the back of the bodice. She has a lovely parasol and scarf combination, don’t you think?
