Handsome Charmeuse FrockThis material is so soft and clinging and shimmering that it fulfils every requirement as a fashionable fabric when the new-style garments are considered. Nothing drapes so readily; no material lends itself so admirably to so many purposes.
Another good point in its favor is the fact that it is serviceable, and the charmeuse gown may be used for every occasion from the most elaborate function to the informal street or house wear.
Model No. 5959, and No. 5963, represents a handsome costume carried out effectively in pearl-gray charmeuse with white lace trimming. Gray is one of the fashionable colors this season – in face, is one of the most fashionable, and the pretty frock shown will serve admirably for an afternoon or evening gown, or for the going-away dress of a bride.
There is a certain clever style about the costume which marks it as new and out of the ordinary. The waist has the lace draped in becoming fashion, while the collar and yoke of insertion and net is quite chic.
The new double frill is noted on the sleeves. In this costume the normal waist-line is defined with a belt of steel-gray velvet. This may be finished with a buckle of oxidized silver studded with emeralds, the light green contrasting beautifully with the demureness of the gray.
Perhaps the most characteristic touch is the draped skirt, in new panier fashion which represents the latest word in smart costuming. The waist-pattern, No. 5959, is cut in sizes from 32 to 42 inches bust measure. To make the waist in the medium size will require 5/8 of a yard of 36-inch chiffon, 2 yards of 36-inch material, 5/8 of a yard of 22-inch allover, and 2 ¾ yards of banding. If made of one material, 2 ¾ yards of 36-inch material is needed, with ¾ of a yard of 36-inch goods for the guimpe. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
The skirt-pattern, No. 5963, is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. To make the skirt in the medium size will require 3 3/8 yards of 53-inch material. To make the skirt without the drapery, 2 5/8 yards of 54-inch material is needed. Width of lower edge is 2 3/8 yards. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Elegant for Street Wear
This costume may be carried out effectively in dark-green cloth, or in any of the new shades of brown. It is a simple frock though a decidedly stylish one, and its construction offers no difficulty to the home-dressmaker.
The waist has the body and upper port of the sleeves cut in one, thus giving the drooping shoulder approved by fashion. The yoke is rather deep, and is of clever cut. It is outlined with a banding of velvet of a little deeper shade than the gown. The yoke and collar are of allover. The long sleeves have the latest-style cuffs, showing the double frill. The cuff itself is of allover, matching the yoke, and the frill is of wide edging. The waist closes at the back.
The skirt is a three-gored model, with double flounce, and it may be made with high or regulation waistline. The drawing shows the regular waistline which is defined with a belt of velvet corresponding with that outlining the yoke. The waist-pattern, No. 5987, is cut in sizes from 32 to 42 inches bust measure. To make the waist in the medium size will require 1 ¾ yards of 36-inch material, or 1 5/8 yards of goods 44 inches wide, with ½ yard of 22-inch allover. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
The skirt-pattern, No. 5981, is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. To make the skirt in the medium size will require 3 3/8 yards of 36-inch material, or 2 7/8 yards of goods 44 inches wide. Width of lower edge is 2 yards. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Stylish GarmentHere we have a serviceable street frock, quite easy to fashion, yet representing the very best style.
The waist has the attractive Robespierre collar, and is further enhanced with a small vest which many of the smartest models for the present-season’s wear are showing. The long sleeves have plain deep cuffs.
The skirt is made with Empire waistline, and has the new-style, cleverly cut closing-line. It is perfect-fitting over the hips, hangs gracefully, and has the necessary fullness and convenient width which the new skirt models call for. It is effectively trimmed with a group of large buttons.
This costume may be delightfully developed in white serge or whipcord, both very fashionable for the coming winter. The bit of trimming on the waist is of black satin, and the buttons on the skirt are either satin-covered or black bone. Quite a striking costume results.Other appropriated materials include striped serge, checked material, plain cloth, cashmere and Scotch mixture.
The waist-pattern, No. 5969, is cut in sizes from 32 to 42 inches bust measure. To make the waist in the medium size will require 3 5/8 yards of 27-inch material, with 5/8 of a yard of 27-inch contrasting goods. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
The skirt-pattern, No. 5985, is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. To make the skirt in the medium size will require 3 yards of 44-inch material. Width of lower edge is 2 yards. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
