Charlotte, Constance, Cecile & Bertha: Fashions from 1869

From the last year of the 1860s come these fashion plates, as published in Peterson’s magazine. In addition to showing the latest styles for women, each page did double-duty by including a stylized name at the top, ready to use as a needlework guide to personalize handkerchiefs or other sewing projects.
