Godey's Fashions for April 1870

Description:

Print of Godey's Fashions for April 1870. The colored print showcases fashionable dresses for women from the spring of 1870. Five women stand together. A small girl stands at the front of the image, slightly to the left. She is holding a cat by the tail in her left hand and a whip in her raised right hand. The women wear dresses in colors of blue, green, red, yellow, orange, gray, and white. The small girl wears a dress in the color red. All of the gowns are floor length, full skirted dresses. Four of the women wear dresses with long sleeves and high collars. The fifth woman (at the far right) wears a sleeveless formal ball gown with a v-neck collar. All of the dresses include some or all of the following embellishments: ruffles, bows, lace, bustling, pleats, and fringe. The women stand in what appears to be a very fine room, possibly a parlor. A mirror hangs on the wall and a table with books and a photo in frame can be seen in the background. A potted plant, draperies and carpeting also make up the interior furnishings of the room.
