She neither moved nor spoke. "Give me an answer," he said in strong appealing tones.
"I will;" she replied, "you have asked me to be your wife. I understand your conduct of this afternoon now, Mr. Armstrong. My answer to your question, my first, last, only answer is-NO."
THE FULL-SIZED PATTERNS.
The Patterns are all suited for Ladies of medium height and of proportionate figure: measuring 34 inches round the chest and 24 waist, unless otherwise stated in the description. All allowances necessary for seams, are already given to these Patterns.
The greatest care is always taken by the binders to ensure the whole of the pieces composing each pattern being folded up in it. If at any time, through accident, our subscribers should find any pieces missing, the Editor will be happy to supply the defi ciency post free, during one month after publication, on receipt of a letter or post card addressed to him at 1, Kelso Place, Kensington, London, W.
Our first full-sized pattern is THE OTTAWA CORSAGE A GILET, as represented on the third figure of our second plate. This pattern, all the pieces of which are given complete in their full length, consists of Gilet, Front, Revers, Sidepiece, Back and Sleeve. The position of the revers on the front is shown by the notch on the front edge, and by the single cut a few inches above it, which corresponds to the single cut in the edge of revers. The gilet shows the shape to which this piece must be cut after the plissès have been formed; the pricked line shows where the front is joined to the Gilet. The fish or pleat taken out in the front is marked by pricking.
Our second pattern (all the pieces of which are marked by one round hole, so as to distinguish them from the pieces composing our first pattern,) is THE CUIRASSE CORSAGE FOR A BALL DRESS, as represented on the second figure of our fourth plate. This pattern is given complete in its full length, and is composed of Front, Sidepiece, Back, and short Sleeve. The shape of the revers at the neck, is marked with pricking at top of the back and of the front. In the sidepiece a small pleat is laid across at the waist level, as marked by pricking, so as to set without a crease at this part. The corners which are cut off at the bottom of front, at the seam under the arm, and at the middle of back, will have to be filled in by the gusset shaped pleatings of a darker shade, as shown on the colored plate. In the short Sleeve, the shape of the underside, and the pleats at the top of shoulders, are marked by pricking.
