Alida is a lovely lady from around 1810, Regency era.

She is at home, it's Sunday afternoon and she is working on her embroidery. 

She wears a silk voile dress over a silk taffeta underdress. The voile is decorated with soft lilac coloured grains and a silk bow. 

Her hair is swept up, held with a hair pin with tiny flowers and ending in a braid over her shoulder. 

Her shoes are silk brocade, decorated with a silk bow and gold detail. Leather soles.
