Described in issue number 7 of the magazine:
Evening Dress. A gown of rose colour gaze de Smyrne over a slip of gros d'été to correspond. Corsage tight to the shape, and cut very low and square in front; it is arranged behind to fall over in the pelerine style, and descends on each side of the bust to the centre of the waist, where it crosses under the ceinture, and by falling low on the shoulders, displays the bust to the utmost advantage. It is cut in deep points, and descends to the bottom of the skirt, becoming progressively broader. Five large noeuds of satin to correspond are placed at regular distances in the centre of this trimming. A biais cut round the top in deep points, finishes the remaining part of the skirt. Long sleeve à la Marie, with pointed cuff. Chapeau à la Duchesse de Berry; the inside of the brim trimmed with blonde lace, laid in full, and embroidered gauze riband; the brides correspond. Six large curled white ostrich feathers are placed round the crown, so as to droop in different directions. White kid gloves; white gros de Indes sandals; cedar fan.
Carriage Dress. A round dress of citron colour gros de Naples, the skirt is of an easy fulness, ornamented with rouleaux to correspond, placed at regular distances. Corsage croisée, and long sleeve à la Marie. Ceinture of wrought silk to correspond with the dress, fastened in front by a gold buckle. Fichu of white lace, with an antique collar, which stands up round the throat. Chapeau of gros de Naples, colour bleu d'Haiti, trimmed with noeuds of gauze riband to correspond, intermixed with bouquets of corn flowers and bunches of unripe wheat. White kid gloves; citron kid shoes.
