Godey's Fashions for January 1869

Description:

Print of Godey's Fashions from January 1869. The colored print depicts five women wearing very ornate gowns. The floor-length gowns include long sleeves and high collars. Each gown has either ruffles, bows, buttons, pleats, draping, or fringe or a combination of these. The women all appear to have long hair styled up on their heads. Several of the women wear ornately adorned bonnets. The gowns, bonnets and background are colored blue, yellow, green, red, black and white. A young boy wearing a blue suit stands at the front of the women. The group appears to be standing in an elegant room, such as a parlor. There is a hutch on the right side of the print with shelves with vases, a chair on the left and drapes hanging against the wall behind the group.
