Woolen goods for autumn wear are Hght in weight, a desirable feature - as skirts of dresses are now so generally lined and interlined that they become too for comfort even in midwinter, if made of weighty fabrics. Plain colors, mixtures of two or three colors and clouded effects are seen atnong the new goods. Small figures are preferred to large. Narrow stripes lengthwise, bayadere and diagonal, neat checks of blocks, and some plaids are shown in dull and in light colors though not in Scotch tartans. The peculiar blue called bluet appears in all materials, and there are many bronze shades, with green prevailing in some and brown in others. Capes will be worn again and must continue in vogue while large sleeves are used. For general wear the golf cape of cloth with Scotch plaid lining will be chosen. The McDowell Fashion Journals, from which the above information is gathered, contain in their last issue a great variety of novelties for the coming season.
