Adonising - 1807 - The fashionable expression for "dressing for dinner".
It is a little art, history, fashion, style, fabric, trims, buttons, laces, silhouette, design, vintage, antique and beauty. In other words a treasure trove of details in women's garment design.
The definition of Adonising can be found in C.W & P.E Cunnington, A Dictionary of English Costume 900-1900, Charles Beard.
