THE PJTTSBUKG; DISPATCH,. SATUEDATf, " DECEMBER " 3. 1892.
To-day's picture presents one of the hand
comest cloth and silk gowns thf t have come
to my notice. It is an altogether refined
and stylish garment, veil fitted for calling
and afternoon reception purposes. The
dress is a gray Vienna cloth, and has small
plaited panels of plaid silk, silk skirt foun
dation, with a false hem and a drawing
strintr, the skirt being plain in front and
ian-plaited at the back. The plaiting of
the panels grows finer at the top. The
corsage has basques in man's dresscoat style

without any trimming. The fronts of the
lining hook in the middle and they are
covered with a full .gathered plastron of
the silk. The corselet starts from the sides
of the corsage and is so laced as to display
the plastron below it. There are leg-o-mut-ton
sleeves and straight collar of the silk.
Vou may, if your fancy so dictates, make
up this costume in black or brown material.
One of the prettiest visiting costumes
that I have seen this season was made up
in reddish brown a very modish color
and the skirts and cuffs were bordered with
black fox. There was a. sort of figaro
jacket corsage, gathered all the way down
the front and opening on a plastron of
white peau de suede, of which the standing
collar was made.
.For walking dresses tweeds and. serges
will be popular, although thick cashmeres,
vicunas and camel's hair will divide the
honors. Trim them all with velvet appll
qnes, passementeries or braid. Harmonious
combinations of colors show the artistic
taste of the wearer and are now-a-days the
touchstone of real style. For instance, steel
gray and egg plant purple go well together,
and so do dove color and wood brown,
mouse gray and silver, ash grav and steel,
irqn gray and steel, gray and nellotrope,
gray and green, beige and cream, nile green
and' moss green, eggplant and ivory, lav
ender and Van Dyke brown, blue and blacsr,
hnzzar blue and silver, sweet flag green and
pink, wood brown and silver, pale blue and
Flower Bonnets and Slack Sacques.
It seems as if milliners- cannot invent
anything more fetching for evening wear
than the "flower bonnet" It is years and
years since it first made its appearanoe,
still it bobs up every once in a while, with
a different name, perhaps, as something en
At a very swell millinery opening, on
Penn avenue yesterday, hundreds of pairs
of pretty eyes were attracted to a "love of a
thing" in palest blue. The shape was the
ever-popular toque, covered with tiny blue
petals. A cluster of ostrich tips of the
same shade was fastened at the back, sway
ing lightly forward' over the crown. Velvet
ties complete the bit of artistic work. An
other very pretly little evening bonnet, in
capote shape, was of soft cream lace, a light
shade of old rose satin, jeweled ornaments,
and old rose ostrich tips, with velvet tiesj
the same shade as the satin. It was fashioned
in nfuch the same manner as the blue affair,
except that the lace formed the tiny brim,
and the crown was a loosely-arranged puff
A coat has made its appearance in the
Pittsburg streets whose reign may be pre
dicted to be very short, although modistes
are loud in its praise, and say it is the .very
height of fashion. It is known as the
"sacque," and is immenselr "slack" as to
the back. It is made of the finest cloths
and trimmed with the best furs. But still,
for sll that, no woman will submit tohav
ing her pretty figure hidden, even if "it Is
considered stylish. It does not require
great judgment to foretell that there will
be a ceneral "cutting out" and "taking in"
of the garments before the winter is far advanced.
Costumes for the Theaters.
The theater costumes should be like all
other attire, selected with an eye to 'the
needs of the occasion, and with a realizing
sense of the appropriateness to the time
and the place. Elaborately trimmed fanci
ful skirts arc neither in good taste nor are
they sensible for such places. Profuse
decorations of beads or lace are eminently
unsuited for such wear.
Theater waists have come to be almost a
distinct feature of dressmaking. The skirt
may be ot almost any good material, plainly
made and with jnst as little trimming as
will make it handsome and stylish. From
the waist up there may be any amount of
dressiness, so the wearer does not appear
overdone or fussy. 1$ cannot be too strongly
impressed upon the minds of women that
fussiness is the most fatal of all mistakes In
dress. Too much rigging and the quality
which is known as style are wholly incom
patible, and one must choose which of these
two one is to prefer. The bonnet should be
small and inconspicuous. It may be very
stylish and dressy, but the general effect is
much better when it is of dark rich color.
The theater wrap may be anything'irom a
plain opera cloak to an' ordinary ulster. The
latter Is, however, all things considered,
much the more desirable article for theater
purposes. In an opera box an elegant cloak
is not out of place, but in the close, narrow
seats of a theater it is really out of its ele
ment. The plain cloak has advantages in
that it mav, carefully folded, serve as a
seat for a diminutive woman, and it covers
all elaborate waist garniture, and with the
handsome dark bonnet, one can go through
the street or in a ear-without occasioning
