Modes de Paris - 1860 Hand-Colored Engraving

This shows a young lady in her fancy ball gown and her more demure friend in the Late Victorian fashions of 1860. This plate has lots of information, but it's all in French. I tried Google Translate and got this close, but I'm sure somebody out there can do better. It is dated February 11, 1860 and numbered 3122.
