White muslin embroidered with white cotton. The design consists of a powder of small rose buds, and a border, on two sides, of a thin running vine, with a few leaves and flowers, and a scalloped edge. The flower forms in the border and corner have drawn-work centers with a variety of fancy fillings. Cut from a larger piece, the two cut edges have been turned and run. Worn and mended.
