This is just gorgeous! Gown and fichu detail from Self-portrait with a Harp, circa 1791, Rose-Adélaïde Ducreux (1761 – July 26, 1802). Note how the lace at the elbow has been folded up over the sleeve, out of the way of the harp strings for ease of play.

These dresses were made for the Society of Martha Washington Colonial Pageant and Ball in Laredo, Texas. And they are generally worn by 17 year old girls. Because no one else has a waist that small!
