The designs of embroidery for shawls are of infinite variety. Long gloves, which reach above the elbow, are not yet laid aside. Medallions are hung around the neck from crossed chains and some of these medallions are shaped like the bags, called ridicules. These reticules are of the lozenge or hexagon shape, with a small tassel at each angle. Reticules, or ridicules, are in lozenge or hexagon shapes with a small tassel at each angle.

Mourning: Mourning was a regular part of life in the 18th and 19th centuries and during Jane Austen’s life. Most families had experienced a death as medical practises were still very primitive and little was known about the cause of diseases or the need for cleanliness. Aristocratic and well-to-do middle class families always had acceptable clothing on hand for mourning and a funeral. Crepe and Bombazine were both used for mourning clothing. Crepe was lightweight black silk. Wealthier women could have special mourning clothes sewn, but often existing dresses were taken apart, dyed black, and resewn.1811 February Full Dress and Half-Mourning Dress, English. #RegencyEra #BritishHistory #JaneAusten #Mourning https://books2read.com/SuziLoveFashion1810-1814 Click To Tweet
