Free Victorian Fashion Illustration: Ladies Setting the Table (Frank Leslie's Lady's Magazine, 1875)

A black and white fashion engraving from a fall 1875 edition of Frank Leslie's Lady's Magazine. The following is a description from the publication:

"Nos. 1 and 2 are illustrations of the front and back of a dinner dress of rose-colored poult de soie. It consists of a train-skirt, trimmed with one deep scantily gathered flounce, edged with a knife-plaiting four and a half inches in depth, set on to form a heading. The overskirt is composed of clusters of upstanding folds, two in number, each cluster being strapped on either side with a fine shirred band, and are each connected behind on the train-breadths of the skirt by tied sashes of pink silk with fringed-out ends. These two clusters of folds are each edged with a fine knife-plaiting, giving the appearance of a double tablier. The corset is of the cuirass shape, trimmed with piped folds, and the neck is decorated with a fichu of plaited crêpe de Chine, edged with a fluting of the same. For the making of this dress thirty yards of poult de soie will be required."
