L'Escarpolette by Nicolas Arnoult

From marinni.livejournal.com; posted 24 November 2012; sepia tone removed by gogm.

This print shows aprons included tops shaped like ski tips, presumably pinned to the bodice. These girls or Ladies are very well-dressed - the person to left wears brocade, the one on the swing wears a vegetable pattern fabric and decorated sheer fabric veil or lappets, while all three wear Fontanges decorated with lace and ribbons. The aprons presumably have pockets. The shoes worn by the person on the swing are fully visible.
