No. 8570, Ladies’ Coat
Suit; coat in 35 or 30 inch length; four-gored skirt; 40-inch
length. Size 36 requires 3 7/8 yards of 54-inch material. The width
around the lower edge is 2 yards. Smart tailored suit.
The four-gored skirt has panel back and front, and side
yoke sections to which panels are attached. The back and front seams
are left open below the hip, the coat hanging in loose panel effect,
or seams closed as preferred. The long, tight, dart-fitted sleeves
are left open and fastened with buttons and buttonholes. The fur as
a substitute for the cloth collar is used to a great decorative
advantage in this stunning new suit for early winter days. Just such
a touch as this gives distinction to the most simple costume. There
are many tines when one is in doubt about what to wear. It is at
just such a moment when a good-looking suit will fill the need and
one may rest assured that she looks correct. Developed in broadcloth
or heavy gabardine. Pattern in 8 sizes, 34 to 48 bust (25 cents).

Simple lines are best
when they define a new one-piece frock of soft pongee silk (design
1005). The dress slips on over the head so that there is an easy way
in and out of it. The little vest front of light Georgette is
extremely smart – and always lightens a colored frock and makes it
more becoming. The long narrow collar follows the slender lines of
the dress and makes it youthful and graceful looking for the young
girl too. The dress is excellent in gingham, chambray, cotton
poplin, cotton gabardine, Indian Head, satin, taffeta, charmeuse or
shantung. Lower edge measures 1 ¾ yard.
A 36-inch must measure requires 3 ¾ yards pongee 35 or
36 inches wide.
Design 1005, 7 sizes, 32 to 44 inches bust measure.

This Highland lassie

Thrice belted is
thrice blessed in design 9990, one of the delightful new shirt-waist
dresses – so popular this Summer – that are being worn by women and

Simplicity gets more
interesting every day and is quite unusual in a new frock of
raspberry-colored printed crepe banded with velvet (design 9719).
The dress is one-pieced and has splendid lines for soft materials.
The draped sides are very graceful with the soft sash arrangement.
The dress is gathered to the round yoke and closes at the left
shoulder and underarm seam. The round neck is charming, if it is
becoming, but for the girl or older woman who feels that she can not
wear it, a collar is provided. The dark velvet at the neck and
slipping through at the front is effective, and the velvet banding
at the hem and on the flowing sleeves is pretty. A body lining is
given and an under, close-fitting sleeve may be used with the
flowing one, or alone. Silk crepe, silk voile, silk marquisette,
chiffon cloth, crepe de Chine, crepe meteor, satin, taffeta and
charmeuse are soft materials for these lines.
A high neck could be used by the woman who desires it.
This is the type of dress that requires practically no trimming. The
lines themselves are very graceful and pretty and a touch of
contrasting color is all that is necessary to trim the dress.
A medium size requires 3 1/8 yards printed crepe 40
inches wide for front and back, 1 3/8 yard plain crepe 40 inches
wide for sleeves including material for a sash (cut double), 5/8
yard velvet 36 inches wide. Bottom measures 1 5/8 yard.
