Hessian fashion keeps up with Franco-English fashion - homogenization is complete. The arrangement of the wheel on her farthingale is hidden. The vee waistline is not quite as deep as some English examples. The embroidered stripes are a prominent feature of this dress and small bows with jeweled centers replace aglets.
