La Mode illustrée, no. 48, 30 novembre 1902, Paris. Toilette de mariée. Modèle de mlle Louise Piret, rue Richer, 43. Ville de Paris / Bibliothèque Forney  
Description de la gravure coloriée:
Toilette en moire étincelante, ornée de mousseline de soie.et de guipure. La jupe à longue traîne, garnie de trois volants plissés, disposés en pointe devant, est ornée sur le côté d'une draperie, légère en mousseline de soie, retenue par des touffes de fleurs d'oranger. La traîne est bordée d'une grosse ruche en moire découpée.
Le corsage, légèrement blousé et disposé devant en plis creux étroits, est fait avec un empiècement à col droit recouvert de guipure. Le côté droit de l'empiècement est encadré d'une double berthe en mousseline de soie, que l'on retient, sur le côté, sous.une touffe de fleurs d'oranger.
Ceinture en moire étincelante fermée sous un piquet de fleurs.
Les manches plates sont laites avec de larges bouffants, terminés par de hauts poignets de guipure évasés et bordés de ruches en mousseline de soie.
On complète la toilette par un voile en tulle illusion, fixé sur le côté sous une touffe de fleurs d'oranger.
Glistening moire ensemble, adorned with silk muslin and guipure. The skirt with a long train, trimmed with three pleated flounces, arranged at a point in front, is adorned on the side with a drapery, light in silk muslin, held in place by tufts of orange blossoms. The train is lined with a large cut-out moire ruffle.
The bodice, lightly bloused and arranged in front in narrow box pleats, is made with a straight collar yoke covered with guipure. The right side of the yoke is framed by a double berthe in silk muslin, which is held at the side under a tuft of orange blossoms.
Sparkling moire belt closed under a spike of flowers.
The flat sleeves are made with wide puffs, finished with high flared guipure cuffs and edged with silk chiffon ruffles.
We complete the ensemble with an illusion tulle veil, fixed on the side under a tuft of orange flowers.
