Morning Dress. A printed muslin dress, corsage à draperies, with a chemisette of English lace, trimmed round the shoulders, and back of the bust, with a row of lace, which falls partially over the corsage. The sleeve sits quite close from the elbow to the wrist, the upper part, excessively long and wide, falls over a little in the Mameluke style. The hat is of fawn coloured gros de Naples, trimmed on the inside of the brim, with a green esprit, and coques of green gauze ribbon. Long light bows of ribbon, and an esprit decorate the crown.
Second Morning Dress. A back view of the next figure.
Third Morning Dress. A dress of white jacconot muslin; the corsage is cut square at the bust, and small plaited; it is finished round the top with a band, lightly embroidered in points at each edge. The sleeves are of the imbecile kind. The skirt is trimmed round the border with four entre deux of embroidered muslin. The apron is of blue gros de Naples, with a corsage en coeur, formed by bands, and ornamented with bows and ends on the shoulders and behind. Cap of embroidered tulle, of a singularly novel and pretty form, trimmed with knots and a wreath of blue gauze ribbon.
