"We consider these the most perfect Forms ever introduced, and cheerfully recommend them to our customers everywhere. THE BUTTERICK PUBLISHING COMPANY [LIMITED]"
MISS MEDDLESOME (to her mamma).--Ah! We have now discovered the secret or her gracefully draped dresses, which have been the envy or our lives. Look! She has HALL'S BAZAR FORM. We shall send for one at once! It can be adjusted to fit either of us.
MISS FASHION PLATE (soliloquising).-The effect Is simply charming. It would have been Impossible to produce this result without HALL'S BAZAR PORTABLE FORM. I can now make over and drape my own dresses and not become worn out standing for the dressmaker. This Form was a happy thought, and is worth more than Its weight In gold to ladies easily fatigued by standing.

The large hats obtain, but on a windy day a small closely fitting chapeau is a desideratum.
The capote in every possible size and outline finds many admirers. Probably the newest is that which has a brim not unlike the Directoire and yet retains the close, compact shape of the capote at the sides. The very close capote, however, is still worn by those who like it."
