When Charlotte goes to bed

She will wear a nightdress that buttons to her neck, has long sleeves, and very little trimmings.
The wrapper {what her housecoat is called then} is the same fine lawn with a wide collar and full wide sleeves. The wrapper is trimmed out with a fancy blue embroidered ribbon. Charlotte wears a nightcap like all ladies of the day. It is also trimmed out in the same blue ribbon. More functional then fancy. But one goes to bed to sleep back then, and nothing else.
  Next a robe de chambre.
