Content : Title from folder.

Content : Foxing on image. Written on border: "June 1857" Printed on border: "Figure 4 is a shawl of black French lace, and is a remarkably pretty article of the kind. The embellishments of costumes for the open air constitute almost the only novelties which we have observed; there being nothing particularly new in fashion and construction. The berthe (figure 5) is adapted to be worn with a low-necked dress. It is of gossamer lace, with rûches which form the border; the whole being edged with lace. Bows of pale blue or white satin adorn the sleeves and the waist. The centre may be graced by a neat bouquet." Includes additional text.
