Shelf locator: PC COSTU-Sha
Women -- Clothing & dress
Content: Title from folder.
Content: Written on border: "Nov. 7, 1857" Printed on border: "Pattern for the hard times -- carpet remnant style ; Another ditto -- the swallow-tail pattern ; Very récherché style -- à la bell-rope ; Another -- à la mouchoir de poche ; New and very neat style -- the Niagara pattern ; A good style for winter -- the gridiron." "The use, beauty, and value of the shawl as an article of costume, almost universal in its adaptability, will not, we presume, be called in question by any one. Within the past year or two shawls, which had ceased to reign supreme in the world of fashion, seem once more to have resumed their sway." Includes additional text.
