Content: Printed on border: "From the establishment of G. Brodie, 51 Canal Street, New York. Drawn by L. T. Voigt, from actual articles of costume." "This recherché mode is a combination of moire antique, laces, and thulle enriched with passementeries of unusual elegance. As, however, these are arranged in a variety of styles, it is impossible to describe them minutely; some of the richest are made up chiefly in very neatly wrought chenilles. Its form is so plainly given above, that nothing is required in explanation. We may observe, however, that, on being spread out, it is about three-fourths of a circle--with the stuff on the shoulders taken in. This, as we may say of all the fashionable modes, is made in black colors."
Source note: Godey''s lady''s book. (Philadelphia : [s.n.] 1830-).
