.=- DReSSMAKING AT HOME. BY SYLVIA. A DRAPED SKIRT. T"aii model is not onty a very graceful edi, tion of the new draped skirts which are be- coming so popular, but is,easy to make, and a very practical one for everyday wear. To. Cut Oat. The skirt can be cut either width or length. ways of the material. In the case of the narrower kinds, the former method is the best to choose, as there is then only one seam. To Make Up. When the skirt is cut out, first of all mako the yoke, turn in and tack the right edge of the front portion, press, and tack on the cor. responding edge of the back piece. Stitch it down and press, then turn in the left edge over a strip of lining, and stitch along to cor- respond with the left side. Secure a strip of lining or stay-tape to the corresponding edge or back portion, and turn in and stitch the edges of wrap, which are cut in one with the Pattern No. 2.213.. Here is a draped skirt which is not only smart but a very useful pattern, as a good àep pocket is inserted under the right side drapery. About 2,'yds. of double- width goods are req-uired. yoke. Now turn in and tack very firmly the edges of the yoke at the waist and lower part, the former over a strip of firm tape, and snip those of the lower part to enable the curve to set well; tack, stitch, and press the seam or seams of the skirt, neaten, open, and press; then fold at the top, as the notches indicate, for the drapery, pin and tack to the corresponding points of the yoke, as in the sketch, tack firr.dv in place, fit on to see that it hangs and sets well, mark the places of fastenings, and then stitch in place where tacked; make and sew in the pocket on the right side. tack and fell the yoke lining in place, press, feW on the fastenings at left side, also the buttons and simulated button- holes, and finish off neatly. Now turn up and stitch the hem of lower edge, press, and iiiiisli off. A SMART AND USEFUL COAT. Here is a coat of a particularly smart and comfortable cut, suited to all winds and weathers, and a variety of materials, from Shantung to blanket-cloth. To Cut Out. Place the yoke front to the selvedges of the material, folded as when bought, and the centre back to the fold, allowing good turn- ings. Smooth out well, and pin carefully in place, so that the extensions of the yoke lie quite flat. The portions between,*let me state, are cut from the pieces left, but a little longer and wider, so that -there is very little waste. The sleeves are of the bishop order, and, therefore, cut in one from the folded material. Cuffs and collar are cut lengthways of the material, and both are required double. The yoke may be lined or not, as preferred, but only the upper part. To Make Up. Having cut and marked the pattern care- fully, so as to ensure the accuracy of both Riel's, tack a strip of canvas interlining to the right front of the yoke, as a foundation for the buttons and buttonholes, turn in the edges carefully, keeping the shape of the tab-like upper portion. Snip where necessary, and cut off any superfluous portions to make it set well. The left side is quite straight. Now tack the facing in place, either across the whole front or just over the interlining. Stitch round the edge, as near as possible to zD Pattern No. 2,214. 7 he pleats, which atte cut in cne with the yoke, give a torch of novelty to this smart z-nd p-actical wrap. It will take 3 yds. of d ub'e-width material. the margin, and then make the buttonholes and sew on the buttons. Now tack and stitch the inserted pieces to the pleats, keeping them quite straight, then press well with the seams im-ide. Turn in and nnisK off the fronts below yoke. j tu n in the upper edges of the yoke, stitch the top cages of the plain pieces to this, <v;d secure the corners firmly and neatly. Next tack the coat together by the shoulder and under-arm seams, and fit on to see that it ''•■MIL'- ovenlv. If correct remove and stitch the seams together, snip, open, and press. The side ones can be neutered by binding or by oversewing, as preferred, whilst those of tiie shoulder parts can be neatened by the feeing, it' this extends to the back; if not, in the same way as the others. Turn up the lower edge, stitch and press, also the lower edges of the pleats, and finish off. -Now join up the sleeves, cut, Ifnd curve at the elbow-part, neaten, oken, and press.
