I have the description of the outfit on the left, which I am heartily in love with:
“The hair in light ringlets; plain chignon; white satin riband [sic] tied under the chin; Cabriolet bonnet, covered with white, black, and blue striped velvet; blue and white striped satin riband scalloped, placed in the front, with a large bow of the same behind.  Round gown of chintz; long sleeves.  White satin cloak, trimmed with swan-down.  Party-coloured bear muff.  Blue and white striped shoes.” (emphasis mine)
