Notes
Content: Printed on border: "A very simple, and at the same time comfortable and becoming style of morning-dress, requiring only a clean cambric or muslin skirt beneath, to make it entirely suitable of receiving morning calls, or even breakfast company. Made of white cambric, it can be done up in the common wash, the ruffles crimped or fluted acording to taste. The flounce is not deep, and is edged by the same style of trimming that encircles the throat and sleeves. If in cambric, it is a double flouncing or broad edging, with a fine cord through the centre, drawing it into a slight fulness. It is very hansome in plain cashmere or mousseline lined with Florence silk, the ruffle then being composed of a thick pearl-edged Mantua ribbon, and girdle of the same, confining it in front. We can commend it as one of the most convenient forms for an invalid's dressing-gown." Written on border: "May 1853." Foxing on image.
Source note: Godey''s lady''s book. (Philadelphia : [s.n.] 1830-).
