The Isabella Skirt, made by Douglas & Sherwood, New York, is peculiarly
adapted to the present season, combining as it does all the advantages of a hoop
and quilted skirt. The bottom is bordered to the depth of half a yard or more
with white quilting, edged with a heavy cord. Three light flexible steel hoops
are introduced in the upper portion of the skirt. The back forms an adjustable
bustle, while the front is composed of a series of upright bands of white tape,
placed at equal distances, and extending from the band to the quilting.
