That the ultra-fashionable coat for Autumn will be shaped on loose-fitting lines and in three-quarter or full length style

is an assured fact, and materials such as taffeta, peau de soie,
moiré, light-weight cloth and even open-meshed goods having
a silk lining of contrasting color, will be used for their de-
velopment. A pleasing example of the Monte Carlo coat-
a loose-fitting mode is in regulation three-quarter length
with one wide or two
narrow circular flounces
around the bottom,
though provision is made
for short three-quarter
length with a single nar-
row flounce. A shawl,
or Puritan collar and
fancy bishop or flowing
sleeves may be used with
either mode. In taffeta,
with trimmings of filet
lace banding and velvet
ribbon, this design would
be exceedingly good style
and particularly suitable
for afternoon, street or

A novel effect is achieved in a new bodice which has the body and collar in one. It is especially desirable for faggoted

or other fancy finish, and for the development of either plain or tucked fabrics.

A skirt that is well suited to accompany the above described bodice is in seven-gored flare style, in frou-frou effect at the lower edge, with the close adjustment to the

knee, and in habit style with button or placket and seam closing. The scams may be faggoted if desired, and a hip yoke and circular flounce may be used if individual taste prefers. The mode is known as the mermaid skirt.

There is an air of smart style in a new five-gored skirt that may be in short round, instep or shorter length, with lengthwise side-plaits stitched flounce depth. It may

be made with or without the hip yoke, which may extend about the skirt or terminate under the plaits at the sides of the front. Both plain and mixed cheviots, coverts and coarsely woven fabrics are suggested for the mode with machine-stitching for an ornamental finish.

A jaunty little jacket that may be made of the same or in a contrasting material from that used in the skirt, is very short with tight-fitting back and semi-fitted fronts which may close in a fly or with visible buttons. The sleeves are in conventional coat style and may be finished with cuffs or vents as preferred.

An innovation in the fashion world is the "Reform" costume, which somewhat suggests the Empire style. An example consists of an Eton jacket, a surplice waist or bodice, with or without a chemisette, and a fivegored flare skirt to be made in long or short sweep or in round length as desired. A combination of materials is suggested for the development of this mode. Dainty silks and soft woollens are especially suitable for the development of a new cross-over or surplice shirt-waist having the ends of the fronts tied at the back or side. The sleeves may be in full-length or in elbow bishop style with frills, and the chemisette may be omitted.

"The "Gibson" style
remains popular in shirt-waists as well as in jackets, and
even skirts are distinguished by this same characterizing
feature. A shirt-waist of unusual good style of the "Gib-
son" type, is made in slot-seam effect and with a Duchess
front closing. Silks, woollens, velvet, corduroy and cloth
are all admirably suited to the development of the mode.

Black evening gowns suffer no decline in popularity and are extremely smart at this season. A charming gown is here pictured made of black chiffon and Renaissance lace over white taffeta, relief notes of black velvet ribbon and pale-pink roses with their foliage being introduced. The bodice is a chic

period. The sleeves are cut out at the top in drop style, the space being filled in with crossed straps of the velvet ribbon caught together at the centre with a cameo. Velvet straps support the waist over the shoulders. In the pattern provision is made for full-length sleeves and a high neck.

Gored skirts are very popular, accentuating as they do the long lines so fashionable. This graceful skirt is of the seven-gored order and is known as the mermaid skirt because of its sheath-like adjustment to the knee. It has a habit back, and a hip yoke and circular flounce included in the pattern are in this instance omitted. The lace trimming is applied around the lower edge of the skirt and extends

porcelain, almond and oyster. Character is given in the allwhite costumes by the use of laces, which can be had in all the shades named.

A stylish reproduction of the gown shown at this figure would be in almond-white canvas over a foundation of white taffeta, with trimmings of Austrian crochet lace. Another pretty gown would be of sunburnt silk gauze over a lining of coral rose taffeta. Pieces of self-colored lace might be let in both bodice and skirt, and a tulle or chiffon drapery with rosette and long ends added for finishing the neck. Crêpe de Chine in white and in all the delicate colors is also in favor for evening gowns and is generally made over silk.
