Evening dress 1807-1811 | V Search the Collections | By the period 1805-1810, brighter colours were becoming popular in women’s fashion. Machine-made net, which had been developed and improved during the later 18th century, was a popular ground for embroidery and machine-made laces. Its light weight and airy texture suited the simple style of Neo-classical dresses.

Dress ca. 1815-1819 via The Bath Fashion Museum

The Princess Charlotte of Wales' wedding dress. June 1816. Prior to Queen Victoria, royal brides traditionally wore silver. Queen Victoria chose a white dress to show off the white lace she wanted to include, which Prince Albert liked.

The Empire fashions at the turn of the 19th century were often little more than sheer nightgowns. The practical solution to the discomfort of lighter clothing was to simply adopt the warm undergarment called pantaloons, already worn by men. Women's pantaloons were made of light stockinet in a flesh toned nude colour and reached to just below the knee, or even all the way to the ankles. This is why Empire women often appear to be wearing no underwear when seen in paintings of the era.
