A Louis XV skirt in regulation or short, three-quarter length may be added, and the tucks stitched to the lower edge or any desired depth.
A shawl collar-facing affords stylish neck completion, and epaulet capes broaden the shoulders, either plain or slashed.

Either cuff may be omitted. However, the band provides completion of the coat.
This coat is especially desirable as part of a costume.

An evening wrap of café au lait bear cloth with a stole and collar extension of sable and lined with brocaded silk in a deep cream tone, will be exquisite.
All-over lace will be pretty on a cape wrap of green broadcloth, with a band of silk the same shade as the coat, or velvet may be introduced as trimming.
Plain or fancy developments may be made from kersey, velvet, zibeline, mole- cloth, broadtail velour, or damas matelassé. Any of the new braids or galloons will offer pleasing ornamentation.
