in consequence of the missive, I'm going by..., penned by Reeba
well according to Julie she's "not sure"... I'd say that it migth rather be a bit of a slip by Austen. IIRC she and Cassandra tended to wear old fashioned gowns and adopted a "middle aged" style of dress... so possibly Austen thought of having a pocket as a useful place to put things, and mentions it, not thinking that a light muslin dress might nto have them....
