Illustrations used for a fashion editorial in Mademoiselle magazine on bridal fashions, including these two nightgowns shown here, which, as the editorial's text indicates, are intended to be worn after getting married. Both the illustrations and the hand-written text (presumably by Nesbitt) were used in the editorial.
