A white satin slip under a double natted tulle dress caught upon each side by a bouquet of roses; the corsage flat and unornamented; the coiffure highly frized, a bouquet of roses placed on one side rather far back. The lady who adorned this dress, wore neither necklace, buckle or drops, but superb diamond tops.

A crape dress, the corsage open, and deep cut round the shoulders, round the bust a blond with long dents formed mantilla, two rows on the shoulders ; the skirt full wide ornamented under the broad hem, with a deep flounce of blond with long dents similar to that on the corsage; above this founce, all round the hem were bouquets of small frizzled feathers intermixed with light rose-buds ; these bouquets were placed at equal distances .

The sleeves of promenade dresses are made wider over the fore-arm, the wristband about three inches wide, is alone close fitting, but from the wrist upwards, the sleeve becomes excessively wide.

A new sort of pelerine or short cloak, intended to be thrown over the shoulders on coming out of the ball-room or theatre, is composed of satin wadded and quilted, and bordered by a rouleau of marten fur or swan's down. These pelerines are light and warm, and well adapted for the use intended. They are easily made, the only perfection consists in the manner of quilting them, either in quadrils, lozenges &c. some are made with hoods to be drawn over the coiffure, an idea may be formed of them by the design on our third plate. MATERIALS & COLOURS.-A charming material for evening dresses, is the Algerine damasked satin. The satin flowers of a pure brilliant white, on the pale yellowish-red woollen ground, forms a very agreeable contrast. Blond and satin ribbons have a good effect on .this elegant material. The same tissue is made in various colours; the dark shades are used for neglige dresses, one of the handsomest is English or yellow green.

For half-dress robes, dark shaded velvets are much employed, particularly dark blue, violet, brown, garnetred, and black. 1 The blond employed for the front trimming of dress caps, should be very light in designs and on very clear net.

Under dress of white satin, open at the side, and fastened by ribbon noeuds disposed at eqnal distances and slant. ing on the skirt from right to left, has the appearance of a wreath. Coiffure, the hair separated over the forehead, the ends forming full side curls, turned up smooth behind and divided in two tresses, one forming a smooth the other a close plaited coque, ornamented with a branch of roses.
