Description

Remote (Form). dom out of fashion. They are especially proper in white and black dresses. It is sometimes good economy to make the sleeve of a dress in two separate parts, so that the lower portion can be taken off at pleasure. For an evening dress this is found very convenient, as when the under part is removed, a lace can be placed upon the short sleeve, thus giving a very dressy and tasteful appearance. Silk and other heavy dresses should be lined, but muslins and calicoes look better when hemmed at the bottom of the skirt. It is a good plan to set a worsted braid around the inside of the bottom of nice dresses, of the same color, and projecting one quarter of an inch below the material. Much wear is thus avoided, and the braid can easily be replaced. We have been thus explicit with regard to the minutiae of dressmaking hoping that we might add many to the present numbtr of ladies whose interest and pleasure it is to be their own dressmakers. THE END.
