Notes
Content: Printed on border: "The prominent feature in the promenade costume represented below is the very beautiful shawl of Chantilly lace. The season has now so far advanced as to render garments of this description peculiarly appropriate, and they are consequently in high favor. Among the many patterns open to our selection, we have seen none more elegant than the one which we have chosen for illustration." "Figure 3 represents a fichu of tulle, plain in the body, with bouillonnées bordering the entire outline, and crossed with very narrow ribbons in large lozenges.-- Figure 4 is a fichu, likewise of tulle, gathered in folds, which are confined by rosettes of narrow white satin ribbon, plaits of which form the edge and traverse the front. A fall of lace completes the whole." Written on border: "July 1856." Includes additional text.
Source note: Godey''s lady''s book. (Philadelphia : [s.n.] 1830-).
