Embroidery - A Collar From 1857

From The Boys and Girls Companion for Leisure Hours, available on archive.org.  This the missing paragraph:

"Collar, in Guipure Embroidery.  The Collar being an essential article of dress, we this week supply the design for one, which will be found both rich and elegant when completed, although it does not require any great amount of work.  

There has lately been a great change in the size of collars.  They are now worn very small. The one which we have given is the right size for any lady."
