Furnished by Mr. G. BRODIE, 51 Canal-street, New York, and drawn by Voigt
from actual articles of Costume.
THE distinguishing features which marked the
I prevailing styles for Cloaks during the past winter-yokes and box-plaited skirts-still remain favorites. They are, however, modified by being cut in such a manner that the lower portion of the skirt falls with great fullness. That which we illustrate this month is quite unique. It is composed of Napoleon blue satin. Its peculiarity consists in the cut and great depth of the cape, which occupies nearly one half of the length of the back. From the centre, which is left in a decided point, arches spring boldly to the sides, and from thence to the breast; the points thus formed being terminated with rich tassels. The skirt, box-plaited behind into a concealed yoke, is plain in front, the arm-holes being covered with flaps ornamented with drop buttons upon the rear sides. The whole garment is elaborately ornamented with needle-work.--In re. gard to the materials for Cloaks, cloths are most extensively used. Satins dispute the favor which has been hitherto accorded to velvets, which they seem to be gradually displacing. In richness and elaboration of ornament, cloaks will exceed even those of last year. Every thing at present seems to indicate that furs, those especially of a costly character, will be a favorite trimming.-The Dress is of damask silk, of which the richest fabrics are displayed in profusion. The skirt is made in flounces alternately wide and narrow, of which the number is left to the discretion of the wearer.-The BONNET is of light blue satin, having a soft crown, and is trimmed with marabout feathers.
The Chemisette, Cap, and Sleeve require but few words in explanation of the illustrations. It
FIGURE 3.-Cap. will be perceived that they are en suite. Through the fulling which borders the centre-piece of the cap enriched by a ribbon passing through the lace at the is passed a ribbon, which terminates in a three-wrist. The laces illustrated are Valenciennes, but looped knot. Similar nauds ornament each of the Maltese, or any other fabric, may be similarly fashother pieces of lace. The sleeve is in like manner | ioned.
