Godey's Magazine Fashions December 1861

Photo Details

Godey's Magazine fashions for December 1861, a plate from Godey's Magazine published by Louis A. Godey.

It was from Godey's that the American woman kept up on current fashion. There was even a pattern in each issue so that women could sew their own dresses. A talented seamstress could sew a fashionable dress from the pictures alone.
