Her dress maintains the empire waist and has very long sleeves that also have a ‘mancheron’ or a gathered sleeve at the shoulders.

He wears tight, short pants tucked into large, riding boots, as was the fashion for men. (PD-Art)  Illustrations by François Courboin from Octave Uzanne‘s Les Modes de Paris.
