A Year in Millinery Fashion – 1864

A Black Velvet Bonnet, with
plain front and cap crown, from Mrs. Cripps, 912 Canal street, New York. On the
left side is a heavy rosette of black velvet, under which is fastened a
magnificent cherry willow feather, which sweeps over the front and down the right
side to the bottom of the cape. On the inside are mixed black and white ruches
on both sides; on the top is a full white ruche, a rich bow of cherry velvet,
with an end on the lower side; on the right is a bunch of black feather
flowers. Broad black strings. (Peterson’s, February, 1864)
