"(Below) To find a dinner gown which will be becoming, correct, and yet not depressing to its beholders is always a problem for the woman in mourning, but it may be readily solved by this frock of black point d'esprit and black silk net, over black taffeta. Bands and bows of black moire ribbon trim the fichu and the sleeves, and top the point d'esprit frills on the skirt ; (Above) Extreme left, a bag braided in dull black beads with a design done in jet beads; next, a necklace of dull black beads; next, a bag of black suede, trimmed with gun-metal; next, a chain of black beads; and, at the extreme right, a black faille bag embroidered with black beads ; (Below) A frock of heavy black Georgette crêpe is made becoming by the white nun's veiling collar. The basque fastens with dull black beaded buttons, beaded ornaments occur in front, and rows of bead trimming edge the tucks on the sleeves and the overskirt. At each side of the overskirt in front appear long loops of Georgette crêpe--long loops are being done, this season ; (Above) Over the hat of black nun's veiling, edged with white nun's veiling, is draped a double veil of transparent nun's veiling, black on the outside, white within. Broadcloth edges collar and cuffs of embroidered white Georgette crêpe ; For half-mourning, there is a hat of black Georgette crêpe which emphasizes its high crown with moire ribbon and decorates its brim with jet. The collar and cuffs are white Georgette crêpe."--printed on border.
