Waist has a fitted foundation over which four different choices of outside design can be applied. The five different sleeve options are all interchangeable with all the bodice options.
View A has a gathered center front and back waist, two-piece mutton leg sleeves, high collar and the waist is straight all around.
View B has a draped right front, a slightly ruffled collar and a lower neckline. The bodice is pointed at the waist front and back, and has a short puffed sleeve. The remaining views use either View A or B bodice but change sleeves, drapes, or omit the collar.
View C omits the wrap and the mutton leg piece of the sleeve.
View E is like View D with the addition of ruffled sleeve epaulettes.
View F is like View C but uses a petal sleeve. Instructions for boning and embellishing the waist are included. Period and modern sewing methods are shown.
