Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Muslin canezou." "Since lace and embroidered muslin capes are somewhat out of date, the canezou seems to have taken their place, a medium between the high and low corsages. Of these, we have every variety; and, when fitting well to the form, nothing can be more tasteful." "Fig. 1 is a canezou of Swiss muslin, and intended for a dinner or evening dress for a small company. It may be worn with a white muslin or light silk skirt. The body is composed of alternate rows of fine Swiss insertion and puffings, or, as the French call them, borrillonnées, or plain muslin, made very full. The sleeves are plain to the elbow, where they widen trumpet-shaped, and are finished in the same style as the corsage, edged by a wide row of embroidery. The same also surrounds the throat and edges the corsage, which is clasped by a belt suitable to the skirt in color, and a buckle of pearl, gold, or enamel." "Le gilet." "We have frequently of late alluded to the introduction of the gilet, or vest, to the wardrobes of ..." "83." Written on border: "Jan 1852."

Source note: Godey''s lady''s book. (Philadelphia : [s.n.] 1830-).
