80 Godey's Full-Color Fashion Plates: 1838-1880
Fig. f. Dress of pearl-colored poplin, trimmed with two narrow green fluted ruffles. The back of the skirt is formed of ruffles and puffs. Short jacket and front of dress trimmed with leaves of green velvet. Hat of white silk.
Trimmed seems to mean the following
To decorate, especially by adding a border or contrasting element: trim a blouse.
But in the quote above I have no idea what trimmed means. Which border is decorated? All of its border or the front part of the jacket including the collar, what about the bottom? The ruffle on the dress trims the neckline of the dress? Fluted means the ruffle is pleated, but aren't all ruffles pleated hence the name of a famous potato chip brand being ruffles?
