Fig. No. 1.---An elegant Calypso Robe, made of rich imperial muslin of a beautiful light yellow, finished at the extreme edge in line of embossed silver and gold, worked in light open flowers, ornamented down the front and round each side of the train, which is sloping off from the bend of the knee, with stars worked in small pearls, fastened in the center with a gold stud; the front and back is made all in one; the waist unusually long, and tight to the form, though cut in various shapes; this robe is worn over a rich white satin train petticoat, worked round the bottom with stars of pearls and dead gold, to correspond with the dress; the sleeves are white satin, made tight across the shoulders, and hangs in small folds down the arm, inlet from the bottom of the sleeve, and crosses to the back part of the shoulder with a wreath of embossed gold and silver in open needle-work. A small white Calypso cap, embroidered with gold. The hair is worn, parted in waves over the forehead, and in small ringlets down each side of the face. Over the head is thrown, in graceful negligence, a long drapery of white Parisian net, tastefully embroidered into a pheasant's eye. Ear-rings and necklace of diamonds; shoes white satin, spotted with gold.
