Fashion plates for 1814

Here are some fashion plates for 1814, the same year as the attack on Fort Cassin. Most of these plates come from the fabulous site Dames a la Mode. Enjoy!

 My goodness. Have some feathers on your hat!

La Belle Assemblee, June 1814. “Blucher bonnet and spencer”

La Belle Assemblee, The Russian and Prussian Bonnet and Pelisse, July 1814
 These two gowns are very similar. Both are relatively simple but very pretty. And I love military shako style hat! I can't decide if the check piece on the left gown is all one piece of fabric or a separate sash and neckerchief. It could be a large neckerchief that wraps around the front of the body. Too bad there is not front view.
