"This very comfortable jacket may be made in almost any fashionable material, except velvet, for which it is not well adapted. It is trimmed with narrow velvet ribbon, fringe and small buttons surmounting flat silk tassels of the same colour."
The Pattern [Click]
"The lining is tight, but the material itself is set round the basque in plaits, each of which is furnished with a button and tassel. A berthe, made of bias folds of the same material as the dress, trimms the upper part of the body; it crosses the shoulder and comes to a point before and behind. It is trimmed with fringe and velvet ribbon. The sleeve is double, the upper one being set in plaits like the jacket, the lower, plain and full and trimmed with fringe and ribbon. This jacket will be found rather full round the hips, unless the full fashionable allowance of crinoline is worn."
