Notes
Content : Printed on border: "No. 2 is the Alboni cloak, of embroidered cloth, velvet, or cashmere. It is preferred by many, because no weight is sustained by the arm, a sleeve being constructed from the back breadth, which falls over the front in a line of waves or broad scallops. The embroidery is in braid and silk, the outline of the braid being followed up by a pattern of silk tendrils. The collar has also a trimming of the same. This will be found an exceedingly comfortable pattern, not crushing the sleeve and undersleeve of the dress, which is the only objection to the cardinal style." Written on border: "Nov. 1852." Includes additional text.

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