Orange in Regency Fashions: a Post Script

When putting together the gallery of Regency fashion plates that featured the use of orange, I neglected to include one of my über-busy orange favorites. What’s up with the asymmetrical details? The left bodice looks laced, while the right bodice has Van Dyke points; the left sleeve is fully slit and laced while the right sleeve is only partially slit. Perhaps a way to show options? Probably, but it sure catches the eye. And, for some reason, I keep thinking of all of those balled tassels as bells.

"Walking", October 1810
