The mode is very difficult to describe at this season, which is specially one of transition; for one day we have warm sunshine which brings out short costumes gay and light, and the next we have cold wind and rain, which suggest waterproofs and winter dresses. Before, then, determining positively what will be the autumn modes, it is as well to occupy ourselves a little with those small light vestments that come in aid of the changes of temperature. The pelirine à capuchon is continued, but is much more ornamented than when first introduced. The Bounce, or rounded dents, are always bound with satin or galon, but now the dents are deeper; or, to speak more properly, the rounded tongues are très profonde. The rotondes are of the same genre as the capuchins, and are lined with silk, and flounced à la vieille, and finished with a small lined collar, without capuchin, indented with very small tongues. The most elegant of these pèlerines are made of white velvet-cloth, lined with white silk and bound with white satin. As a fantasy some have them lined with coloured silk and bound with satin of the same tint. The pèlerine changes its appearance, and becomes very négligée if made in colour. It is very pretty in black, trimmed with satin bouton d'or. It is in better taste if the strings are of gold.
