If this print of John Nash's Brighton Pavilion comes from 1823, then it is a splendid example of British evening dress in 1823. Skirts are A-line, waists are halfway between Empire high and natural, and necklines include trapezoidal, on shoulder bateau, off shoulder bateau, and square. Many Ladies sport feathers and wear gloves. Puffed quarter length sleeves and decorations on the lowest quarters of skirts are de rigueur.
