Lady reading in carriage dress. Fashion plate. Ackermann’s Repository, Series 1, Vol 13, June 1815  Issue.

A type of Regency afternoon dress was a carriage dress or traveling dress. These were made out of slightly heavier fabrics, ones that would resist wrinkles more than a cotton muslin. Also, they tended not to have as many trimmings, which could become crushed during a long carriage ride.
