"Pleated caraco, or français caraco, seen from the back, trimmed with flounces; the volant is headed with a matching trim.  The sabot cuffs flare in the middle and taper at the ends, and are trimmed with two poufed bands.  Hat à l'Italienne, almost entirely concealing the top of her face; two oblique curls, braided chignon held up with a bow at the back of the head.  Shoes match the color of the caraco, fastened with rosettes"
