Free Printable Fashion History Illustration: Victorian Lady in a Gored Robe, 1860

A page from Godey's Lady's Book in 1860 (I think it is from July or August; I am not sure as the cover is missing). The description for the dress reads:

La Princesse. ― This carriage or home-dress is another variation of the gored robe, the skirt coming in at the waist in broad, square plaits; the stuff or material for this season of the year is a light reps cloth, of silk or worsted in naroow, horizontal stripes; flat bows of silk, the prevailing color of the dress. Bonnet of Cobourg straw, with a Clotilde veil.

At the top of the page is an embroidery pattern for a shirt bosom.
