A fashion illustration from my collection of Peterson's Magazine, July 1857 issue. From the magazine, the description of the dresses are:

On the left, a morning dress of white cambric, trimmed in front in the apron style with insertions and heavy worked rufflings. The corsage is made with a basque and ornamented to correspond with the skirt.

On the right, a dinner dress of white muslin, trimmed with three flounces richly embroidered. Corsage high. A small mantle of white muslin, embroidered.
