IT IS in tba aAernoon, at taa, at tna matinee and prmnenudinff in
tiia Bou, that ona recia tha moat vivid impreaaion of taanion
aggtanutia for corractaMa in racepttn and afternoon frocks
for tna coming leaaon.
Evan now tha coatumca worn in camasa, en the round of
aoeial ant-artainmenta, proclaim thoaa notaa which will be stronynat
In tha achama of dresa thia winter. Wider akirta hava coma to atay,
and thers ia a perceptible lowering; of the waist line, albeit tha
majority of models have a slightly raised Una at tha wut, in
moiined empire effect. Cor.traat in trimming ia also a stron:
r.ore, for, mark you, the Parisienna adores sharp contratu; in
proof of which far ia used with luce, heavy embroidery on
chitfan, tulle and brocades.
Sapphire blue velvet ia used in tha first modeL A vest
of white broadcloth ia embroidered in a large floral design in
shaded blue nosa and dull silver thread. Tha little yoke and
'collar, cut in one, are of pink tulle, while tha girdle is of silver
ribbon, held in place by a silver roae. A scarf and bow of
ermine trim the picture hat of black velvet.
TIn7 crocheted buttona trim tha deep raver which is seen
on ona side of the model gown of black eharmeuae. Again tha
buttons are seen on tha tunic, which opena to tha waist line on
tha skirt. Tha left sida of tha bodice ia trimmed with deep
ere am -colored lace. This ia alao used for tha long raffs. The
pointed vest and collar are of rucked tulle. Tha dainty little
hat of fine French felt haa an upstanding aigretta on tha
White satin, chantiHy lace and ermine combine to make
the elaborate afternoon costume in the next cut. A plain,
modified empire frock of satin, buttoned from neck to hem
with aatin-covered buttons, haa an overdress, or coat, of black
chanf.lly, which ia bordered with broad bands of ermine.
CuiTj of ermine finish tha half -length sleeves. The hat, a
black velvet model, is faced with white-and-gold brocade and
trimmed with one very full willow plume, which stands high
on ona aide, tha fronds falling in beautiful confusion aver
The gown of a belle of 1860 is copied (with slight varia
tions) in tha next modeL Narrow ruchings, a new note, are
seen on the fichu and skirt. Pale roaa-coiored embroidery is
ised in profusion and ia delightfully girlish on the creamy
nonssel'.ne de soie. The undersieevas are of fine net, which ia
ilao folded in the V-ahaped neck.
Tha vogue for fringe ia emphasized on tha model of black
eharmeuae, which has deep, shawl-like revers edged with it.
A draped tunic is likewise bordered with fringe.
Cream-colored lace is crossed over the bust and alao in tha
back for a vast affect, while flesh-colored maline is used for
tha yoke and high collar.
Tha hat of black haa its cmwn completely hidden beneath
cluster of black aigrettes, and tha drooping bnm haa a narrow
border of soft silk fringe.
D recoil aenda us an elaborate model of white tulla having
tha lower half of tha skirt made of heavy lace.
Thia, in turn, shows a flounce of ana thread lace and a
footing of fringe. The tunic and bodice drapery are of change
able green-and-gold mouaseline da soie embroidered with gold
thread. Tha high collar and yoke are of tulla.
Black mouaealine and blue arraure da soie go to make up tha
model by Martha Win grove. In thia the sleeve and wrapped
tunic are cut in one and draped over the underdreaa of blue.
Buttons and simulated buttonnoies of blue satin are used as
trimming. The nndersleeves and collar are of princess lace.
Thia model shows a decided French neck, long on the
shoulders and high front and back. This is another "straw"
which shows the direction of the "wind" of fashion that marks
tha abolishment of the Dutch neck. (
In choosing sn afternoon frock one cannot go wrong if
any one of these models be copied.
