Muslin Dresses about 1800, Hamburg Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe. THIS is what is meant by "muslin" in Jane Austen's works, American friends! Naturally, a lady wore a chemise, stays and petticoat beneath. Our American muslin is what the Engish call "calico."

Muslin Dress | c. 1800 -- Aside from the train, it's so simple. Totally beautiful. I love the cap sleeve and near-elbow gloves combo.
