A Year in Millinery Fashion – 1864

Violet purple silk bonnet, trimmed with white lace, black feathers, and pink roses.


  Bonnet of white pressed silk, trimmed with a scarf of black lace and a tuft of scarlet feathers and black grasses. The inside trimming is of black lace and scarlet roses. The strings are of scarlet ribbon.


The short veils, of which we have before spoken as mask veils, but more appropriately termed by the Parisians muzzles, are now universally worn on both hats and bonnets. They are of thread or guipure lace, or else of tulle or spotted net, trimmed with chenille or bugle fringe, or else are hemmed over a colored ribbon.
