Such cross-promotion of three patterns in one illustration was typical of how Madame marketed her patterns. Great fashion illustration!

Suggested fabrics were fur fabric, astrakhan, velvet, crepe de chine, or satin.

This made a up a lady's costume.

The pattern text emphasised the approaching summer, and light summer fabrics were recommended. A style seen as suitable for the slender or the 'stout' (the larger figure!), the draperies of the polonaise were a principal feature, gathered in 'uneven puffs' and covering the skirt beneath.
