Uh oh....

I have started thinking along the lines of a silly frilly 18th century gown in pale pink for next year's 18th century social events. I even ordered a swatch of this fabric from renaissancefabrics.net. This Gainsborough portrait of Mary, Countess Howe (c.1760) is not exactly the right period for me, but I think I can use it as inspiration.I see this thing dripping in lace and positively ridiculous. Now, francaise or anglaise?
