Girls’ Double-Breasted Coat
The model is simple to fashion, yet possess all the elements of good style.
The garment is made in double-breasted style, and is cut on sacque lines at both front and back. Close-fitting revers ornament the front, while at the back either a square sailor- or round collar may be employed.
The well fitted sleeves are finished with a deep turnback cuff.
The design for this coat is particularly stylish and effective, and for wintry weather will prove a warm, service-giving garment.
No style could be better for development in the fashionable woolen mixtures, while serge, cheviot, and broadcloth are also available.
This model will be clever made up in blue serge or pencil-striped cheviot, with collar and cuffs of white satin. For a plainer coat, collar and cuffs of the same material would be suitable.
The pattern, No. 5657, is cut in sizes for 6, 8, 10 and 12 years. To make the garment in the medium size will require 3 1/8 yards of 36-inch, or 2 5/8 yards of 44-inch material. If satin collar and cuffs are used, it will require ¾ of a yard of 20-inch satin. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
It is a dressy costume that combines good taste with practicability.
The jacket is 28 inches in length, and is a double-breasted model with box back. There is a chic sailor-collar, fastening close to the neck. The coat closes invisibly down left side, and is ornamented below the collar with two braid frogs. The sleeves are plain, and fit man-style, without fullness, in the armholes. The collar and turnback cuffs have inserts of velvet.
The skirt is one of the prettiest ever designed. It is in four gores, and has the popular panel at back, stitched partly down the length, but hangs loose a few inches above the hem.
A stylish feature is the front-effect. A triangular piece of contrasting goods is set in at the bottom, above which are three braid ornaments to correspond with those on the coat. The skirt has the snug fit over hips now in vogue, and hangs in straight, narrow lines, with sufficient fullness to insure grace.
This is a good design for white serge or mohair, and a pretty wash-suit can also be developed from the model, using linen or Danish cloth.
The coat-pattern, No. 5675, is cut in sizes from 32 to 42 inches bust measure. To make the coat in the medium size will require 3 5/8 yards of 36-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
The skirt-pattern, No. 5665. Is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. To make the skirt in the medium size will require 3 7/8 yards of 36-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Girls’ Three-Piece Skirt
Here is a three-piece suit, consisting of coat, waist and skirt. For a school-outfit this clever little suit will be just right, the skirt and coat being of the same material, or different, as preferred.
The coat is a plain box model, loose at front and back. Small lapels are rolled back from the turndown collar. The sleeves have a little fullness at shoulders. The jacket buttons down the front in a single-breasted style. There is a pocket in each side front.
The skirt is a plain, gathered model, attached to belt.
The waist is a cunning little shirt-blouse, much on the style for older girls. A cluster of tiny tucks at front and back regulates the fullness. The waist closes through a center box plait. A smart rolling collar finishes the neck, and the regulation shirt-blouse sleeves are completed with a band cuff.
The pattern, No. 4618, is cut in sizes for 6, 8, 10 and 12 years. To make the coat and skirt in the medium size will require 3 5/8 yards of 36-inch material, 3 yards of 44-inch, and 2 5/8 yards of 50-inch goods.
For the coat alone are needed 3 ¼ yards of 36-inch material, 1 ¾ yards of 44-inch, and 1 5/8 yards of 50-inch goods.
For the waist are required 2 ¼ yards of 27-inch, and 1 ½ yards of 36-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Fancy effects in house-gowns are as much in bad taste as are frills and furbelows in a business office. The woman of refinement will welcome the new idea displayed in the dress illustrated, No. 5435.
Here is a garment that entirely replaces the old-time wrapper. It is neater and nicer than a kimono, because when attired in a dainty house-dress a woman is always ready to answer the bell, or appear before strangers, if necessary.
This model is something new in house-dress designing. It is a one-piece dress, closing down the left of front, from neck to hem. A Gibson plait over each shoulder in front runs to about yoke-depth, where it is released to provide becoming fullness to blouse. At the back the plaits run to the belt-line.
The pattern provides for either long or short sleeves, high or Dutch neck.
Chambray, gingham, madras, or percale is used for house-dresses of this type. Plain blue or pink, with white collar and cuffs would be nice, or plaid gingham, with plain collar and cuffs matching the predominating color of the material.
The pattern, No. 5435, is cut in sizes from 32 to 42 inches bust measure. To make the dress in the medium size will require 8 ¾ yards of 27-inch material, with 5/8 of a yard of contrasting goods. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
It is not too plain for dress-, nor too fussy for ordinary wear, and having these good points, it is a suit that cannot fail to attract the attention of the woman to whom good taste in gowning is an attribute.
The coat is a plain box model, yet is lifted out of the plain class by the ornamentation afforded by the handsome revers, which are braid-trimmed in inverted-shield shape, or of plain white satin. The same trimming is likewise used on the cuffs.
The skirt is cut in regulation or Empire waistlines. There is a panel the full length of both front and back. An additional tasty touch is given by the plaited side flounce, which hangs in graceful fullness. The garment closes at the left side of the back.
Serge, broadcloth, or panama, is what is needed for a costume of this type.
The coat-pattern, No. 5671, is cut in sizes from 32 to 42 inches bust measure. To make the coat in the medium size will require2 ¾ yards of 44-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
The skirt-pattern, No 5682, is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. To make the skirt in the medium size will require 3 7/8 yards of 44-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
