Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Figure 4 represents a cloak of moire and velvet, with buttons of the same materials, of a style entirely new. The centre is of one material, with a wide border of the other. The drops are made to match. Buttons of this and other styles will be much used as trimmings; as will fringes also. Cloth may be very properly used for the material of such a cloak." "The cap forms a bouillonnée of illusion tulle, lozenge shaped, inclosing [sic] a crown of the same, upon which is a plait of black velvet and rose or straw colored ribbons. Through the bouillon is drawn a transparent of satin ribbon, forming a bow upon the opposite side where the ends emerge. Strings of the same. Frills of black and white lace, with tabs of black lace behind, and an ornament of gauze leaves and pensile straw flowers, complete the ornaments of the head-dress." Written on border: "Oct. 1856." Includes additional text.
Source note: Harper''s magazine. (New York : Harper Brothers, 1850-).
