Illustration on Page 424 | Described on Page 439
Blue suiting showing a beautiful stripe was used in developing the stylish toilette, with a finish of stitching.
The double-breasted jacket is a particularly smart design; it shows graceful adjustment and is closed in double-breasted style with buttonholes and buttons and turned back above the closing to form lapels that are silk faced.
A rolling collar finishes the neck, and the collar and the turn-tack cuffs completing the two-seam sleeves are faced with velvet. Laps conceal the openings to inserted pockets.
The skirt is a five-gored mode and is in instep length, but may be shorter, if liked. It shows the fashionable dip at the top, and flares gracefully at the bottom, where an inverted box-plait is introduced at each side seam, and the fullness in the back is arranged in an inverted box-plait.
Strappings and stitching give a neat finish. The jacket may be developed in Melton, kersey, tweed or broadcloth, and the skirt in Cheviot, serge, double-faced cloth, etc.
The jacket pattern, which is No. 4458 and costs 10d. or 20 cents, is in nine sizes for ladies from thirty to forty-six inches, bust measure, and is portrayed differently on page 443.

This coat may be seen again by referring to figures Nos. 140 T and 159 T in this number of The Delineator.
A coat cut on the most approved lines is pictured here made of fine cloth finished with stitching. It is adjusted carefully at the back and sides, and the fronts are semi tight-fitting and closed in double-breasted style with buttons and button-holes.
Above the closing, the fronts are turned back in pointed lapels that meet and extend beyond the ends of the rolling collar.

Cheviot, covert cloth, broadcloth, and all the tailored fabrics are suitable for the reproduction of coats of this description, and machine-stitching or strappings will give an approved finish.
We have pattern No. 4458 in nine sizes for ladies from thirty to forty-six inches, bust measure.

This skirt is represented again in figures Nos. 140 T and 160 T.
The skirt that extends only to the instep or is of shorter length is now receiving considerable attention. For shopping, touring, golfing, ice skating, stormy weather, etc., it is practical, neat, and stylish and is almost universally adopted.
The mode illustrated here made of double-faced cloth and decorated with machine-stitched strappings of the material is in a five-gored style of superior design.
It is fitted perfectly smooth over the hips without the employment of darts and has fullness at the center of the back laid in an inverted box-plait that is stitched for a short distance from the top. The skirt may have the conventional or a decided dip at the top in front, according to preference.
The adjustment at the top produces the fashionable close effect, and extra width allowed at the lower part of each side seam for inverted box-plaits gives the stylish dare at the bottom which is a feature of' the newest modes. The skirt falls in an outline of about three and one-half yards in the medium sizes.
A serviceable skirt could be evolved from light-weight double-faced covert cloth with machine-stitching for the finish.
We have the pattern - No. 4449 in nine sizes for ladies from twenty to thirty-six inches waist, or thirty-seven to fifty-eight and one-half inches hip measure.
To make the skirt of material with figure or nap for a lady of twenty-four inches waist or forty-one inches hip needs three yards and three-eighths fifty-eight inches wide of material without figure or nap, three yards in the same width.
Price, 10d. or 20 cents.

The back is semi close-fitting, and the double-breasted fronts are turned back at the top to form stylish revers that lap to the throat. The fronts and backs are cut away on the shoulders to accommodate the Raglan sleeve, which is a feature of the mode.
A turn-back cuff completes the sleeve, which is in bell style at the bottom, and fancifully shaped flaps are arranged over the openings to large hip-pockets inserted in the fronts. The high flare collar becomingly completes the neck and is held in position by a small, pointed strap.
Kersey, Melton, broadcloth, etc., will develop comfortable coats by the mode. If intended for wear in warm climates, mohair and lighter-weight materials may be used satisfactorily.

Ladies’ Long Coat.
Illustrations on Page 441 | Described on Page 450
This coat is illustrated again in figure No. 141 T in this magazine.
The Raglan sleeve is an odd and distinguishing feature of the comfortable long coat here illustrated made of mode cloth and finished with stitching and buttons.
The coat is semi close-fitting, being adjusted with side seams that come well to the back, and a center seam, and reaches to the lower edge of the dress.
It is made with a slight dip, and is worn with gowns fashioned with small trains, but may be made in a shorter length, in which instance the outline of the dip is preserved.
The garment is closed at the bust in double-breasted fashion with a button and button-hole, and above the closing, the fronts are turned back to form round- cornered revers that lap to the throat.
The fronts and backs are cut away on the shoulders to accommodate the Raglan sleeve, which extends to the neck and is fitted smoothly at the top by a long shoulder dart.
The sleeve is in two pieces and is in loose, bell style at the bottom, where it is completed with a turn-back cuff that may form a point or be shaped straight-around on the outside of the arm, as liked.
A capacious hip-pocket is inserted in each front, the opening being concealed by a fancifully shaped flap. A high, sectional flare collar that is held together by a small pointed strap finishes the neck.
A suitable coat for traveling could be developed in lightweight covert in either tan or gray, and strappings of the material will supply a desirable finish.
For cold weather wear kersey, broadcloth, or Melton is usually selected for garments of this description, and, if desired, the revers may be inlaid with velvet, satin or silk for wear in warm climates mohair, linen, and other light-weight materials may be chosen, the mode is particularly suitable for traveling.

Editor's Note: Some terminology used in the description of women's clothing during the 1800s and early 1900s has been changed to reflect more modern terms. For example, a women's "Toilette" -- a form of costume or outfit has an entirely different common meaning in the 21st century. Typical terms applied to "toilette" include outfit, ensemble, or costume, depending on context.
