A Year in Millinery Fashion – 1864

Fig. 1 is a bonnet of rose-colored crepe, with curtain of the same. Near the front edge is a narrow band of the crepe, edges by a white lace; at the top of front is a group of roses and rose-buds, mixed with fulling of lace or blonde; from beneath the group, a passing down the back of crown, is a fulling of tulle edged with narrow lace; at the back curtain is a small rose-bud with leaves, from under which, falling over the curtain, is a broad lappet of tulle edged with white lace. The strings are of pink silk. (Godey’s, July, 1864)
