Costume Design and Costume Illustration are not always looked 
upon as distinctly different branches of what is termed fashion work, 
but in truth there is a marked difference between them. 

^ In the former, one must consider the judging of color, and all that this 
(\j includes by way of harmonies, contrasts, areas, etc.; the relation of spaces; 
(?) proper proportions; and the beauty and effect of line, balance and scale 
^ arrangements for the production of a design that is dignified, fanciful, 
^^ frivolous, dainty, formal, or subtle, to express the designer's conception 
Oft of the purpose of the costume and its suitability to the wearer. 

(^ The costume illustrator, on the other hand, has the privilege of 

, representing the garment after it has been designed — he must be able 

^ to render the material with his pen, pencil or brush in such a way 

^ that the actual design is not robbed of any of its charm. Of course, 

("V there are many ways of doing this, according to the technique and 

sensitiveness or temperament of the artist, as well as the different 

methods customary for the special use for which the design is intended. 

It can easily be seen how advantageous it is to any fashion artist, 

whether designer or illustrator, to have an understanding of both branches 

to get the best out of either, for they have much in common. 

The designer and the illustrator should both have a knowledge and a keen 
appreciation of the beautiful lines of the human form, to know what 
lines are important to emphasize and what to conceal in a figure which 
may not be perfect. Drawing from the nude is of great advantage to 
the student, and no serious costume illustrator should be without this 
valuable training. 

There are some books which may help the ambitious student in the life 
class to observe and impress on the mind fundamental facts which it is 
believed most life-class teachers will agree in thinking extremely useful. 
Among these are Dunlop's Anatomical Diagrams, Figure Draicing by 
Hatton, Anatomy in Art by J. S. Hartley, Richter, Marshall or Duval, and 
Drawing the Human Figure by J. H. Vanderpoel. If the student is studying 
without an instructor, Practical Drawing, by Lutz, will be found helpful.

1. Forms. — In both lines of fashion farthest point out of the other oval, to 

work it is necessary to be able to eon- represent the skirt. Connect these and 

struct quickly a form on which to sketch you have a form. See Fig. 1. The bust

store windows, this should be constructed 
to enhance the good lines of the garment. 
Care must be taken, however, never to 
confuse this with the human figure, the 
structure of which is entirely different. 

The simplest way of obtaining this 
form is by drawing tw^o ovals. First, 
make a straight line for the shoulders, 
then swing an oval, somewhat foreshort- 
ened, from the shoulder line, to repre- 
sent the waist. Next, swing another 
more elongated oval, from near the end- 
ing points of the first oval, having the 
farthest part out always opposite the 

present-day silhouette the connecting lines 
should be but slightly curved. 

Next, extend the two lines for the 
sleeves, add the collar and put in the 
centre line, which, in the front, follows 
the outside line of the waist and goes 
straight in the skirt. See Fig. ^. (Of 
course, the proportions differ according 
to fashion; i.e., the normal waist would 
go but twice into the short skirt of the 
summer of 1916.) It is interesting to 
note how the reverse of this straight line 
and curve forms the back. In making the 
back, connect the ovals in the same man- 


ner, but note that the centre Hne goes the straight full front view, because of 

straight in the waist and curves in the the advantage of showing the side of the 

skirt. See Fig. 3. dress as well as the front. An examina-

two and a half times, and the sleeves 
bend at the waist line or a little above. 
The supporting points at the shoulder, 
elbow, and hips should be marked, for 
it is these points that most affect the 

With a little application, these forms 
may soon be mastered, and the practice 
of doing them rapidly and turning them 
both ways makes for proficiency. See 
Pig. 4. Observe that three-quarter front 
and back views are used in preference to 

Fig. 4. 

2. Summary. — The main points to be 
remembered are that the bust and hips, 
for the present silhouette, should be on a 
line, that the arms bend at the waist line 
or a little above, and that the normal 
waist goes into the instep length skirt 
about two and a half times. 

In the front view remember that the 
centre line follows the outside line in 
the waist and goes straight in the skirt, 
that in the back the centre line goes 
straight in the waist and curves in the 


Page Three 

skirt. (The centre hne is the centre of 
the actual figure, not of the sketch.) 

The collar and waist lines curve up in 
the back and down in the front. The 
bottom of the skirt describes a circle; 
therefore, like the 

waist and collar, 
the line curves, but 
always downward. 
The shoulder lines 
should be made to 
slant as much as 
the silhouette re- 

For this work 
use an H.B. pencil, 
Eberhard Faber, 
Ruby or Emerald 
eraser, and emery 
board pad. The 
point of the pencil 
should be kept 
very sharp by con- 
tinually pointing it 
on the pad. From 
the start great at- 
tention should be 
paid to a clean-cut 
and beautiful line 
and to the proper 
placement of the 
sketch on the 
paper. See under " Greek Law," page 27. 

3. Sketching a Garment. — After the 
form is mastered up to this point, the 
next step is the sketching of a garm^ent 
on the foundation drawn. If possible, have 
as a model a simple dress or suit on a 
coat-hanger, or preferably a dressmaker's 
form; then find the centre line of the 
garment and see that, in sketching it 
on the oval form first constructed, you

have the centre line of your sketch cor- 
respond with the centre line of the gar- 
ment. You will find the proper observa- 
tion of the centre line an infallible guide 
in giving you the proper relation of the 
sketch to the gar- 
im Next observe 

V- x\ the large, impor- 

' tant facts — such as 

length of sleeves, 
length of coat, the 
long, important 
lines— and be par- 
ticular to put in 
the seams; but 
leave details such 
as embroidery, 
lace, tucks, plaits, 
gathers, etc., until 
the last. See Figs. 
5, 6, and 7. 

After the lengths 
of the sleeves, 
waist, coat, etc., 
are determined, 
you must strive for 
skill in keeping 
your pencil line 
clean and sharp. 
This gives the 
much-desired, well 
pressed newness to the garment. To 
keep this effect, beware of too rounded 
curves. After the sketch is finished, 
some accents should be put in, in 
places where shadows would naturally be; 
this gives added interest to sketches. 
From the first, observe and work for 
texture. Notice how delicate, light lines 
express thin material better than heavy, 
hard ones. After ability of this kind is

acquired, the next step is to work for 
speed. Garments in shop windows give 
excellent opportunity for sketching when 
the student is trying to acquire speed. 

4. Sketching from Memory. — Training 
the memory in 
sketching is also 
most important. A 
good way to do 
this is to sketch 
from memory 
what has been 
drawn from ths 
garment the day 
before. Another 
good way is to 
observe a dress 
either in a shop 
window or on a 
person, and then, 
without again 
looking to aid the 
memory, to try to 
put on paper all 
you remember. It 
is well to verify 
this sketch by 
comparing it with 
the garment, to 
find out how much 
you have forgotten 
and where you 
have made mis- 
takes. To be able 
to sketch from memory is a truly valu- 
able asset in costume work. So much 
can be carried away in one's mind from 
"Openings" and places where sketching 
is not possible. 

5. Sketching from Garments. — A knowl- 
edge of the proper way to sketch gar- 
ments such as gowns, hats, and acces- 

FiG. 6. — Preliminary pencil sketch of a gown 

sories, is absolutely necessary in fashion 
work. It is helpful, first for your own 
convenience when you see things you 
wish to remember, or when you wish to 
explain things seen to some one else, next, 
in gathering ideas 
to adapt to your 
own designs, and 
again, in doing 
sketching for news- 
papers or maga- 
zines. Designers 
for manufacturers 
find it a great 
boon to be able to 
sketch in their ex- 
ploring trips in the 
shops and along 
Fifth Avenue. 

Sketching for 
manufacturers is 
done for two pur- 
poses: To give 
Ihem the latest 
French models 
from the "Open- 
ings" from which 
to make exact 
copies or some- 
thing adapted to 
their special trade 
needs, and to give 
them an inventory 
of their own stock 
for their reference and convenience. 

Sketching for dressmakers is a little 
line of fashion all its own. The sketches 
for them must be daintily finished, as 
they are to be shown to the customer 
and play an important part in the sale 
of the gown represented. The simple 
ones (see Fig. 6) are done in pencil, with-

out heads, but with a styhsh foundation

neath, with 
sometimes a 
little color 
added in the 
background to 
throw the 
sketch out. 
Sometimes they

as a rule the more finished dress- 
makers' sketches 
are done on 
figures express- 
ing some action 
and illustrating 
the presumed 
effect of the 
gown on the 
wearer. See 
Figs. 13 and 14. 
WTien sketch- 
es are being

done for embroideries, an additional small 
detail drawing should be made of the 
embroidery at the side of the paper. Tex- 
tures and colors should always be noted 
on the sketch as well as details, such 
as the number of buttons, 
etc., in order that there 
may be no confusion when 
making the finished sketch 
at home or in your studio. 
A convenient size for 
rough sketches is six and 
one-half inches. Practical 
sizes for finished dress- 
makers' sketches are from 
ten to twelve inches when 
heads are included; with- 
out heads, six and one- 
half or seven inches. 
Wide margins lend dis- 

Some of the well known 
French designers are Paul 
Poiret, Cheruet, Beer, 
Callot Sceurs, Paquin, 
Martial and Armand, 
Francis and Drecoll. Al- 
ways note the designer's 
name on your sketch as 
well as the texture, color, 
and detail. The name of 
the design always en- 
hances the value of a 
sketch. Always place 
these sketches on the 
paper according to the Greek Law, i.e., 
most margin at the bottom of the paper. 

When making a finished sketch of this 
kind, a pretty pose should be chosen, 
and this should be thought out and 
practically finished in pencil; then draw 
in the garment carefully before putting 

on the color. The usual method is to put 
in the shadows first, the light big washes 
next, and the detail last. Clear color is 
used as a rule but opaque or tempera is 
often used in small areas combined with 
the clear color sketch; 
sometimes opaque paints 
are substituted. (See Page 
9 and description under 
Color, page 68.) Pen-and- 
ink outlines are often used 
for these sketches and kid 
bristol or illustration board 
is considered the best kind 
of paper. 

6. Hats.— Much of what 
has just been stated ap- 
plies also in sketching 
hats. Care should be 
taken to express the most 
characteristic side of the 
hat; in other words, catch 
its "feature." Be careful 
not to lose the relation 
of the crown of the hat 
to the head. When pos- 
sible, it is best to have 
some one pose for you to 
insure the right angles. 
See Fig. 12. 

Before going into this 
further, consult Section 
15, page 17. 

Theatrical designs and 
sketches are carried out in 
the manner of the other sketches of 
hats and dresses, but a greater liberty 
in the way of eccentricity and exaggera- 
tion is permitted. See Fig. 9. 

7. Accessories. — In connection with 
sketching, the student would do well to 
pay attention to accessories such as col-

lars, sleeves and 
shoes. It tends to 
much greater facility 
on the part of the 
student to arrange 
these according to 
the Greek Law of 
proportion, page 
27. For sugges- 
tions see Fig. 11 
on this page. 

8. Sketching from 
Life. — Sketching 
from life is strongly 
advised; drawing 
from the nude is of 
great advantage 
when done with un- 
derstanding. In all 
sketching and draw- 
ing it is advisable to 
block in, or in other 
words, sketch with 
light lines the general 
proportions, using 
tentative or trial 
lines and "feeling 
for" the form. See 
Figs. 15, 16, 18, and 

Never complete 
one part before 
another part is 
thought out; never 
fix your attention 
on the outline, but 
rather on general 
proportion, or the 
result will be un- 
happy. See Fig. 17. 
Decide where your 
drawing is to begin

on the paper, and 
where it is to end, 
leaving good mar- 
gins (more at the 
bottom than top), 
and block in between 
these spaces. After- 
wards make sketches 
from memory of the 
pose you have been 

When doing rapid 
sketching to catch 
the action of a figure 
in motion, indicate 
the position of the 
head, hands, and feet 
and fill in the rest. 
Excellent practice is 
obtained in doing 
five, seven, ten, and 
fifteen minute poses 
from the nude or 
draped model. 
These quick sketches 
often afford good 
action poses that can 
be carried out and 
used to great advan- 
tage. See Figs. 40 and 
41. This sketching 
will be most helpful 
in assisting the stu- 
dent to obtain a pro- 
fessional touch and 
an individual style. 

More and more 
stress is being laid 
on the well-drawn 
figure underlying the 
fashion drawing and 
too much emphasis 

Page Eight 


cannot be put on the value of drawing 
this figure with understanding and appre- 
ciation. Great care should be given the 
study of hands 
and feet, as these 
play an impor- 
tant and telling 
part in fashion 
work. See Front- 
ispiece and Figs. 
10, 27, and 28. 

The student is 
advised to make 
copies, by way of 
study, from the 
hands in Vander- 
poeVs Human Fig- 
ure and then to 
make studies 
from life. It is 
important in this 
work to observe 
from which side 
the light is com- 
ing. (See Figs. 
28 and 29.) 

It is practical 
to make the life 
studies in a loose, 
artistic manner, 
in charcoal, chalk, 
etc., and after- 
wards to draw 
from this sketch 
another figure, 
copying the pose 
and keeping the 
action, but refin- 
ing it slightly, to make an attractive fashion 
drawing on which to put the dress from 
one's costume sketch . See Figs. 40 and 4 1 . 

Lutz, in his book entitled Practical 
Drawing, wisely says: 

Fig. 12. 

"When drawing from fife, it is a good 
plan to put yourself, in the same pose as 
the model; that is, imitate as well as 
you can, the ac- 
tion, the disposi- 
tion of the limbs, 
and the pose of 
the head. This 
mimicry — it will 
only be that some- 
times, as you will 
find that different 
persons have dif- 
ferent ways of 
carrying them- 
selves, and you 
can perhaps only 
approximate the 
pose of the model 
— will give you a 
better understand- 
ing of the pose 
and impress itself 
on you mentally 
and further the 
work of pictur- 
ing it. 

"Note how, 
when the hips 
slant one way, 
the shoulders, to 
incline the other 
way ; and the head 
again to preserve 
the balance, tilts 
away from the 
falling shoulder. This applies to the 
greater part of poses. Sometimes, though, 
models deviate from the general." This 
is valuable advice to observe in your

9. To Set Up a Well-proportioned Fig- 
ure.- — It is best to understand how to set 
up a well-proportioned nude figure "out 
of one's head" or chicing a figure as it is 
sometimes called. See Fig. 21. To con- 
struct this figure find the centre of the 
paper, through which run a vertical line. 
The head is the unit most useful in meas- 

using one inch as the unit of measure. 
This gives the height of the figure. Mark 
each of these divisions with a dot. The 
figure is divided into four important sec- 
tions; the head, torso, arms, and legs. 
To keep the drawing as simple as possible 
we will have to start, in some detail, 
with the head, it being our unit of measure.

uring the human figure, and in this 
instance, we will use it, making it, for 
convenience' sake, one inch long. (The 
dimensions we are using will vary slightly 
from those given in most anatomies, be- 
cause we are constructing a figure to 
use in fashion work, where slimness is 
the chief requirement.) Mark off on this 
line seven and one-half heads, in this 
case seven and one-half inches, as we are 

To construct the oval which will be 
used for the head, mark off the first inch 
and divide this one inch vertical line into 
three equal parts. At a point just a 
little below the first third just established, 
draw a light horizontal line of indefinite 
length and mark off on it a distance 
equal to a little less than two-thirds of 
the one-inch vertical line and so spaced 
that the vertical line exactly bisects the 

Page Fourteen 


horizontal line. Construct an oval on this 

Horizontal lines drawn through the 
points that divide the vertical line into 
thirds give the eyebrows and the tip of 
the nose. A horizontal line drawn through 
a point one-third of the distance between 
the eyebrows and the tip of the nose 
marks the centre of the eye socket, and a 
horizontal line drawn through a point 
one-third of the distance between the tip 
of the nose and the base of the oval 
marks the centre of the mouth. 

Divide the horizontal eye structure line 
into five parts; the middle space represents 
the width of the nose, and the nearest 
parts on each side the eyes. Guide lines 
dropped from the centre of the eyes, ver- 
tically, give the corners of the mouth. 
For the ears extend a line a little beyond 
the oval on each side of the head, from 
the first third to the second third, or, in 
other words, from the line indicating the 
eyebrow to the line indicating the end of 
the nose. 

Continue the bisecting vertical line 
down one-third of its length, to establish 
the pit of the neck. Draw a horizontal 
line through this point. Drop guide lines 
from the base of the ear to this line. 
Connect the extremities of these guide lines 
with arcs curving slightly towards each 
other, thus giving proper expression to 
the neck. 

10. The Torso. — Three-quarters of the 
length of the head gives the width of each 
shoulder and of each hip. Cut the dis- 
tance between the chin and the pit of the 
neck in half by a dot placed on the centre 
line. Connect this point with the point 
made in marking the width of the 
shoulders. The point where this line 

intersects the curved line of the neck is 
where the neck sets on the shoulders. 

The second "head" or unit of measure 
gives the bust line. Curve the line in- 
dicating the bust section. 

The third "head" gives the placing of 
the abdomen. 

One-half the distance between the bust 
and abdomen, or between the second and 
third head, is the waist line. Indicate 
this. The centre of the figure comes 
slightly above the fourth head, this is 
also the end of the torso. The line of the 
hip is halfway between the third and 
fourth head. Establish the width of the 
hip line by verticals from the shoulders. 

11. The Legs. The knees come half- 
way between the hips and the soles of 
of the feet. The ankles come at the 
seventh head. The width of the ankle 
is one-third the width of the hip line. 
The inside ankle is high, the outside ankle 
low. The calf of the leg is about one-half 
the width of the hip, the outside calf 
of the leg is higher than the inside calf. 

12. The Arms. — The length of the arms, 
stretched out horizontally including the 
shoulders and the hands, equals the length 
of the body. The wrist comes at about 
the end of the torso. The elbow comes 
at the waist lines. The pit of the arm is 
one third each shoulder. With these meas- 
urements established, block in the figure 
and features. 

13. Other Positions of Head and 
Figure.— The diagram of a woman's fig- 
ure on page 72 of Dunlop's Anatomical 
Diagrams will be found helpful to the 
student, at first, in blocking in the figure. 

After the proportions are well under- 
stood, the figure and head may be turned 
in other positions; for this the "tooth-

good foundation, helping to make simple 
the foreshortening then necessary. For 
suggestions for turning the head in dif- 
ferent positions, see Fig. 23. 

14. Children's Proportions. — The chart 
shown in Fig. 24 illustrates the propor- 
tions found in various stages of devel- 
opment. In infancy, or at the age of 
about six months, the head measures about 
four times into the height; at four years, 
the head measures about five and one- 
fourth times into the height; at seven, 
approximately six and one-half times; at 
ten years, about six and three-quarter 
times; at fifteen, about seven times; and 
in the adult from seven and a half to 
eight times. Children's heads, therefore, 
it should be noted, are larger in propor- 
tion than those of the adult, the eyes are 
wider apart, the nose shorter, and the 
lips somewhat fuller. See Fig. 22, also 
Fig. 24 and Figs. 20, 94 and 95.

Holland, who is one of the greatest author-

ities on the human body in the world, 
says a child grows as follows: 

First, in breadth and height from birth 
to the end of the fourth year. 

Second, in height from the fourth to 
the beginning of the eighth year. 

Third, in breadth from the eighth to 
the tenth year. 

Fourth, in height from the tenth to 
the fifteenth year, when the youth gets 
lanky, thin and angular; this is the period 
when the hands and feet look too big. 
Growth then continues to manhood or 

In drawing children, great care should be 
taken to keep their legs, at the slim period, 
long and slender. Care must be taken not 
to make them developed, which detracts 
from their childlike charm and makes 
them look vulgar. In studying children, 
look at good illustrations by Kate Greena- 
way, Jessie Willcox - Smith, Elizabeth 
Shippen Green, Birch, and Helen Dryden.*

shape of the head is that of an oval

serve this, too, in side, three-quarter and brows and chin. See Fig. 23. The eye- 
back views of the head. The eyes are brows are on a level with the top of the 
in the centre of the head, and the end ear, and the lower end of the ear on a

level with the nostrils. This forms a 
never-changing axis on which the head 
turns up and down. 
Note how the fea- 
tures are located 
in these changes, 
and how the fore- 
shortening is sim- 
plified by means of 
this method. In 
drawing heads al- 
ways use the centre c^"^ 
and other construc- 
tion lines. 

When the head 
is turned up, we 
see more chin and 
less forehead ; when 
turned down, more 
forehead and less 
chin. The eyes are 
one eye apart, and 
the lower lip ends 
at about half the distance 
between the nose and 
chin. A triangle is helpful 
in dividing the face into 
planes, and great care 
should be taken not to 
ignore the cheek, jaw and 
chin bones. Observe that 
the cheek bones come 
slightly below the eyes, 
the jawbone slightly below 
the mouth. 

In drawing the nose it 
is helpful to think of a 
little round knob; from 
which extend the nostrils, 
sketch in the sides, and 
extend a line suggestive of 
the planes. Afterwards everything can be 

Fig. 26, 

rubbed out except the nostrils, but they 
will appear more correctly placed than 
when put in with- 
out this foundation 
thought. See Fig. 

In drawing the 
mouth, think first 
of a Cupid's bow, 
the string of which 
is broken in the 
centre; then sug- 
gest the lower lip, 
shade the upper 
lip, which is always 
darkest as the 
lower catches the 
light, and you 
have the mouth. 
Never make a hard 
line around the 
lips, as it destroys 
the flesh-like qual- 
ity. See Fig. 25. 

In making the eye, al- 
ways hold the pupil in by 
the line of the lid. Block 
in the head, ears, hands, 
and everything before 
putting in the detail. 

Hair should be expressed 
in waves of light and dark, 
not by single lines (unless 
you are making a deco- 
rative, unrealistic draw- 
ing). Never draw a 
clean-cut line between the 
face and forehead, because 
the hair in many places 
blends in with the tone of 
the face. See Fig. 26 
and observe other drawings that show hair.

16. Hands and Feet. — The next step high, using the Greek Law of arrange- 

should be a careful study of the hands ment. It is well to use real shoes and 

and feet. The drawing of these is sim- slippers for models, but study also well- 

plified by looking for the large masses drawn examples to see how they are usu- 

first and blocking them in. See Figs. 27, ally rendered. Notice how the inside of 

10, and 28. For 
example, in draw- 
ing the hand, deter- 
mine the relation of 
the length of the 
fingers to the palm, 
and where the 
thumb comes in 
relation to the 
fingers. All knowl- 
edge gained by 
study or observa- 
tion from life will 
help in drawing or 
chicing them. Van- 
derpoel's Human 
Figure, mentioned 
before, has some 
splendid illustra- 
tions of both hands 
and feet that the 
student would find 
it helpful to study. 
One good way of 
studying them is 
to make careful 
drawings from these plates, and after- 
wards to try to making your own draw- 
ings first from life and then from 
imagination. See Figs. 28 and 29. 

Shoes are extremely important in fashion 
work, and should likewise receive the 
careful attention of the student. A good 
way is to group five or seven pairs of 
shoes, including sport shoes and slippers, 
in different positions on a sheet of bristol 
board about 11 inches wide by 14 inches 

Pig. 27. — ^Study of hands by Albert Diirer 

the foot is straight- 
er than the outside 
line, which has 
some curve. Ob- 
serve also liow 
much shorter the 
line of the inside 
of the shoe is than 
the outside line, 
which extends 
nearer the heel. 
See Figs. 25 and 
11. Note that the 
inside ankle is 
higher than the 
outside ankle. 

It is well to ob- 
serve what is ap- 
propriate and to 
select shoes of 
different character. 
There are shoes for 
shopping, for after- 
noon, for evening, 
for travel, and 
for sport. You 
must select the right shoe for the right 
dress. The footwear must be in keeping 
with the costume; not afternoon shoes 
or evening slippers with a sport suit. It 
is usually best to have evening slippers 
match the gown and hosiery unless you 
use a patent leather pump. 

In these days we cannot make the 
skirt cover up bad drawing of the feet

Dame Fashion that 

"Her feet beneath her petticoat 
Like little mice steal in and out, 
As if they fear the light." 

17. The Human Form 
Reduced to its Simplest 
Elements. — Relative propor- 
tions and helps to express 
action can perhaps best be 
acquired by observing the 
following facts in connection 
with toothpick 
figures : 

The trunk, 
thigh, and leg are 
each about one- 
third the length 
of the body with- 
out the head and 
neck, though the 
trunk is a trifle 
the longest. The 
trunk is about 
twice the length 
of the head and 
neck. The elbow 
reaches to about 
the waist and the 
hand half way 
down the thigh. 

Walking is best de- 
scribed on paper when 
both feet are on the 
ground, though in reality 
the greater part of the 
time the body rests on 
one foot. See Fig. 30. 

Running is best shown 

Fig. 30 



Fig. 31. 

Fig. 33. — Illustrating balance. 

Leaping is best shown in the same 
manner as running (limbs ready for the 
next effort), but with the 
feet off the ground as in 
jumping. See Fig. 31. 

Jumping is best shown 
with the feet off the ground 
but gathered together to 
preserve poise and ready to 
alight safely. See Fig. 31. 

A stick stands when 
balanced on one end and also 
when supported 
on each side as 
shown in Fig. 31. 
The body may 
be bent at the 
hips so as to bring 
the head over 
either foot and 
maintain an up- 
right position un- 
til the weight of 
the body is bent 
beyond the line 
of support, when 
it must come to 
the ground as 
shown in Fig. 32. 
Kneeling fig- 
ures, leaning 
back, make it necessary 
that support be given 
behind as shown by the 
vertical dotted line in 
Fig. 33. 

The student should 
notice that a straight line 
extending from the neck 
to the floor comes just 


when one foot is on the 

ground, though in reality much of the time between the feet when the weight is 

both feet are off the ground. See Fig. 30, evenly distributed on both legs. When

the weight is on one leg, the plumb line 
begins at the pit of the neck (viewed from 
the front) and extends to the ankle of the 
supporting leg. On the other hand, when 
the figure is in action, the plumb line 
from the neck falls between the legs, pro- 
viding a proper balance; when this bal- 
ance is destroyed, the figure either has to 
be leaning against something or it falls to 
the ground. See Figs. 32 and 33. After 
studying these, it is well to build the 

figure on these foundations to acquire 
action. See Fig. 34. 

In Fig. 36 is shown a seated figure; 
the stool is the principal part of support, 
though the foot is extended to receive the 
weight of the body. Fig. 37 is this con- 
struction applied. 

Figs. 34, 35, 36 and 37 are given as 
illustrations of the use of the toothpick 
construction in giving action to the human

18. The Greek Law. — In the sixteenth 
century, in the days of the Renaissance in 
Italy, Leonardo da Vinci with other artists 
worked out, through study of classic art, 
an ideal proportion which is commonly 
known as the Greek 
Law. Instead of 
using exact me- 
chanical measure- 
ments, such as 
the half, thu-d, 
fourth, etc., so 
easily measured 
in inches and 
easily grasped by 
the mind, this law 
supplies the idea of a consistent variety, so 
fundamental in all artistic things, stimulat- 
ing the imagination and lending interest to 
the object. Thus, if an oblong is divided 
horizontally in half, the equal areas will 
be found both mechanical and uninterest- 
ing, see (a), Fig. 38. On the other hand, 
if the difference in areas is great, as in 
(6), Fig. 38, the sizes are too incomparable 
to be satisfactory. In (c). Fig. 38, the 
oblong has been divided into thirds and 
then into halves, and a point found some- 
where between one-third and one-half, 
through which to draw a horizontal, shown 
by the heavy line. It will be seen that the 
relation of the areas above and below this 
line to each other are neither mechanical 
nor monotonous, but subtle and interesting. 


Fig. 38. 

These same proportions may be prac- 
tically applied in clothing to tucks, hems, 
etc., as illustrated in Fig. 39. Suppose a 
line is drawn six inches long to repre- 
sent a muslin skirt. Divide by the Greek 
Law to find 
where any trim- 
ming (hem and 
tucks) should 
start. Re-divide 
the space given 
up to this trim- 
ming to obtain 
further good pro- 
portions (of the 
hem to the tucks). 
In Advertising — Its Principles and Prac- 
tices, published by The Ronald Press Co., 
the following statement is made : 

"This Greek Law of proportion is some- 
times crudely stated as the ratio of 
5 to 7 to 11. This is somew^here near 
correct, and perhaps near enough to 
work with. In applying this ratio to 
the margins of a page it will clearly be 
seen that the widest margin, or 11, should 
appear at the bottom, the next widest, 
or 7, at the top, and 5, the narrowest, 
alike on either side in all vertical com- 
positions of space. In horizontal com- 
positions the widest margin should still 
appear at the bottom, the middle size 
at the right and the left, and the nar- 
rowest at the top. This is so that the 

Muslin Tucks 






Fig. 39. 

Page Twenty-eight 


general form of the display within the 
composition shall preserve the same ratio 
as is found in the enclosing space itself. 

"Not only should the Greek Law of 
areas be applied to margins, but also, 
when possible with- 
out interfering with 
the meaning of the 
copy, it should 
apply to the width 
and strength of the 
various parts or 
paragraphs of the 
copy within the 
space. When it is 
possible to do this, 
the effect is doubly 
pleasing. There is 
also often a chance 
to apply these pro- 
portions to the 
blank space between 
different parts of 
the copy display. 
When it is possible 
to do so, this has an 
added value. Not 
enough attention is 
paid to the relative widths of these blank 
spaces. Blank space is often more eloquent 
than copy." 

Summarizing the above briefly, it is 
to be noted that : 

(1) Mechanical divisions are in- 

(2) Sizes too unrelated, such as a very 
large size and a very small one, fail to 
satisfy, as the mind does not see any 
relationship in things that emphasize each 
other's difference. 

(3) Areas or sizes near enough alike to 
be easily compared by the eye and yet

different enough to interest because of 
their unlikeness, satisfy us. 

(4) Spaces are most pleasing together, 
when one is between one-half and two- 
thirds the length or space of the other. 
This gives quite a 
difference in size for 
individual treat- 
ment, but avoids in- 
harmonious lengths 
or sizes placed to- 
gether. In other 
words, when tv»-o 
lines are in good 
relation to each 
; other, the shorter 
line is between one- 
half and two-thirds 
the length of the 
longer line. 

The Greek law 
may be applied to 
the margins of draw- 
ing papers as well 
as to folds and coat 
lengths. The best

margms tor a vertical 
lay-out is to have the greatest width at 
the lower edge, the next at the top, and the 
smallest at the sides ; while for a horizontal 
page the widest margin should still appear 
at the bottom, the second size at the sides, 
and the narrowest at the top. This is 
to preserve a like relation with the en- 
closed space. 

Design is selection and arrangement, 
and from the start of any work the details 
which make for good design should be 
kept in mind. If it is school work, even 
the name and the lesson should form part 
of the plan. Observe how the enclosing 


Page Twenty-nine 

form determines the shape within. The 
nearer one comes to the structural edge, 
the more nearly the 
lines should conform to 
it. Avoid lines that lead 
to corners, lines that 
lead to the centre, and 
lines that tend to be- 
come tangents. The 
lines of the background 
or setting should be 
less intense than those 
forming the object 
shown against them. 
The larger the area the 
less intense the color 
should be; the smaller 
the area the more 

are in

or more shapes hold together for unity, triangle. A 

the space between must be less than the process, using the dimensions just given 

the printed page is given to the artist 
(for example eight inches high by seven 
and one-quarter inches 
wide) and the number 
of figures to be put in 
that space (say five 
figures). The artist's 
work is to compose 
these figures in the 
most attractive group 
or groups. 

The first step is to 
enlarge the dimensions 
to a convenient work- 
ing size. In doing this, 
the original proportions 
must be kept. The en- 
larging is done by means 
of a drawing board, T- 
square, ruler and 
detailed statement of the 

smallest of these shapes. 
For illustration, the 
paths of a garden should 
be smaller than the di- 
visions of the garden 

19. Lay-outs and Re- 
ductions. — Lay-out is 
the technical name 
given to the composi- 
tion of a catalogue 
page, and the drawing 
of the figures which 
go on it. It is also ap- 
plied to the grouping of 
any objects to be put 
in a certain given space, 
whether for magazines, booklets or news- 
papers. The height and width of the 
space which the lay-out is to occupy on 

Fig. 43. — The rough lay-out. 

T-square blade, 
corner, measure 

is as follows: 

Draw a horizontal 
line, say two inches 
from the top of the 
paper, straight across, 
using the T-square, the 
head of which is held 
against the left edge 
of the drawing board. 
Next measure in, let us 
say, two inches from the 
left side of the paper, 
and draw the vertical 
line against the edge 
of a triangle, the base 
of which rests against 
the upper edge of the

with the ruler, using the triangle to per- 
fectly complete this little rectangle; then 
draw a diagonal and determine the height 
desired for working out the lay-out and 
extend a horizontal line wherever this 
horizontal touches 
the diagonal, erect 
a perpendicular and 
the dimensions of 
the large and small 
rectangles will have 
the same propor- 
tion. See Fig. 42. 
Catalogue pages 
often go through 
many hands before 
they come out a 
technically finished 
product, photo- 
graphically perfect 
but often stiff, in- 
artistic and unin- 
teresting. There is 
often a special 
artist who does 
nothing but lay- 
outs, grouping the 
figures and plan- 
ning the page as 
in Fig. 43 ; another 
who makes sketches 
of the garments; 
another who draws them on the laid-out 
figures; another who puts on the large 
washes; another who does details such 
as lace and embroidery; another who 
finishes the heads; and still another who 
finishes the hands and feet. See Fig. 44; 
the original of this was twenty-five inches 
by seventeen and three-quarter inches. 
When, however, this work is done through- 
out by one expert artist, a much more 

Fig. 44. — Conventional Catalogue drawing 
work of several artists. 

interesting effect is obtained. See Fig. 
45, the original size of which was 12^ 
inches wide by 17f high. 

Each line bounding the lay-out should 
be touched by some part of some figure. 
The better the lay- 
out artist the less 
space will be wast- 
ed. It will be found 
advisable to give 
the centre to the 
figure with the 
darkest clothes, as 
this is found most 
agreeable to the 
eye, and also sets 
off the other fig- 
ures to advantage. 
The law of per- 
spective requires 
that, if there are 
smaller figures, 
these should be 
nearer the top of 
the page. The 
effect is like a 
staircase ; when one 
stands below, those 
at the top seem 
smaller than the 
people nearer the 
foot of the stairs. 
For the principles of general composition 
which underlay all design, the student 
will find it helpful to read Pictorial Com- 
position, by Henry A. Poor; Principles 
o/Dmgrii, by Batchelder; Composition, by 
Arthur Dow, and Principles of Advertising 
Arrangement by Frank Alvah Parsons.

cuts to results and effects must be con- texture, the smooth white with black 

sidered, such as Ben Day rapid shading texture, and the cross-ruled blind with 

mediums, Ross Board, spatter, air brush black texture. A knife and pencil are the 

and silver prints. Ben Day is a great tools used to obtain effects with this 

time-saver, as can be seen from even the paper. See Fig. 48. In the first, the 
few samples shown 

in Fig. 49 of some 
of the complicated 
textiles and half- 
tone effects obtain- 
able in the line cut 
or ink drawing. 

When Ben Day 
is desired, the 
places where it is 
to be used are 
colored with a blue 
pencil or blue 
water - color wash 
and marked with 
the number of the 
texture wanted; 
the engraver with 
the Ben Day 
machine does the 
rest. See Fig. 49, 
and the floor and 
hat in Fig. 77, 
showing Ben Day 
stipple. Notice the 
difference between 
these and Fig. 50, 
done by hand; observe particularly the 
greater irregularity of line. When two or 
more printings are made the Ben Day can 
be put on in color, but this necessitates 
two or more plates according to the 
number of colors used. See Fig. 97 in 
which two plates were used. 

Ross Board comes in a variety of designs. 
The three most used kinds are perhaps 
the plain white with raised or embossed 

Fig. 45. 

stipple effect is ob- 
tained by rubbing 
the pencil over the 
plain white and 
the raised surface, 
which in this case 
consists of dots. 
These catch the 
lead and a stipple 
effect is the result. 
In the second, 
white can be ob- 
tained by scraping 
off the surface and 
a darker tone by 
rubbing a pencil 
on the rough sur- 
face. Two effects 
can be obtained 
with the third ; 
with the knife, the 
stipple surface; 
with the pencil, 
the fine check. 
Black can be put 
on with ink. This 
makes possible an 
even gradation from white to dead black. 
Fig. 48. Fig. 46 shows a finished Ross 
board drawing. 

Spatter work is done with a toothbrush, 
and makes good flat tone effects for tex- 
tures, posters and backgrounds. Cover 
the entire drawing, except the parts to 
be spattered, with paper, cutting out these 
to make what is practically a stencil 
(tracing paper fastened down with rubber

cement is convenient). First, dip the 

toothbrush in a saucer of ink, hold it 

facing the paper and about three feet 

away, and draw the edge of a penknife 

or the handle of a pen or brush over the 

bristles toward 

you, letting the 

spatter fly onto the 

drawing. With a 

little practice this 

can be done very 

skillfully. See Fig. 


The texture of 
rough paper often 
gives interesting 
effects in the repro- 
duction of a draw- 
ing; for this rea- 
son crayon, pencil, 
charcoal, and even 
wash drawings are 
sometimes done on 
what is called a 
paper with a 
tooth, such as a 
charcoal or other 
Fig. 45. 

The air hnish gives either an even or a 
varied tone, as desired, and in the doing 
of half-tone shoes it is found very useful. 
It is really an atomizer run by pressure, and 
by its use a great variety of tone can be 
obtained. See Fig. 55. As in spatter work, 
the surface of the paper to be kept white 
is covered. Frisket paper, which is thin 
and transparent, is used for this purpose 
and pasted down with rubber cement. 
When the rubber cement is thoroughly dry 
it may be rubbed off, leaving a perfectly

21. Tracing. — Tracing is often found 
necessary and is a time-saver in doing 
repeats, etc. Graphite paper gives a 
better line in transferring than carbon 

The pencil should be kept very sharp 
when tracing and a hard pencil is good 
for doing the transferring through the 
carbon. Ruled squares are useful to put 
under thin paper in doing some kinds of

Fig. 50. — Stipple work done by hand 

Stipple, which takes a 
long time, is done by dots 
made with the point of a 
pen. When a flat tone 
effect is desired, it is often 
produced by sets of 
circles running into each 
other. See Fig. 51. If 
large dots are required, it 
will be found convenient 
to use a ball -pointed pen. 
Artistic and interesting 
effects can be obtained in 
this manner. See Fig. 50. 

22. Silhouette. — In do- 
ing silhouettes the follow- 
ing statement made by 
Miss Harriet Lord, 
the silhouette portrait 
artist some time ago 
in the Tribune, is 
helpful commercially, 
and her permission 
has been secured to 
quote it: 

"Perhaps no one 
has demonstrated 
more clearly than 
Miss Lord the im- 
portance of the pose

of a head, how much ac- 
tion, what varying humor, 
may be found in the way 
in which a head is perched 
on a person's shoulders. 
A little boy whom she has 
portrayed, Fig. 57, holds 
his neck perfectly rigid 
with head raised in the 
back and lowered in front. 
One can feel the restrained 
life in the little chap, the 
unusual quality of his 
attentive attitude fostered 
by some engrossing in- 
terest outside. 

"There are ever so 
many things to re- 
member in making 
silhouettes. Certain 
persons cannot be 
pictured in this posi- 
tion, for in many 
persons profile means 
little; it is the eyes 
or something in the 
drawing of the full 
face that is indicative 
of the true personality. 
Many faces are im- 


Page Thirty-five 

mobile and one must look to their eyes 
for character. They cannot be well sil- 
houetted. Little points must be re- 
membered such 
as in this little 
girl, Fig. 58. You 
see her hair is 
down her back, 
but I have allow- 
ed a spot of light 
to shine through 
to give the out- 
line in suggestion 
of her neck. Not 
to have done this 
would have made 
an awkward line 
and, more impor- 
tant, a line that 
was not satisfac- 
tory, for it al- 
most hinted at a 
falseness or ap- 
parent abnormal- 
ity. The chair 
on which a person is seated must be 
examined, for it must not melt into the 
person's figure with puzzling results. 
And it is well to break in with lights.

for they add character and life to the 

"And then, too," explained Miss Lord, 
"one is startled 
to find how much 
each line and 
curve of the face 
means. Nothing 
is ignored and a 
slightly upturned 
lip may be the 
touch that gives 
an unmistakable 
note of character- 
ization to the 
cutting or inking." 
The silhouette 
is a very quick 
method of gaining 
an effect, being 
merely an outline 
sketch, usually 
profile, filled in 
with black ink. 
See Figs. 57 and 
58. White is sometimes successfully added 
as in Fig. 5Q.

houetted when the white paper appears

as the background. A silhouette is a design 
sharply defined; the clear outlines of the 
drawing coming directly against the paper 
on which it is re- 
produced. Fig. 69. 
A vignette is a sil- 
houette having at 
the base or behind 
the figure, or in 
some part of the 
design of the figure, 
a wash that disap- 
pears in a vague 
shadowy effect. This 
wash is reproduced 
only in tone and has 
no definite line 
marking its edges, which end in an indefi- 
nite vagueness (such as the veil ends) 
and the shadow background. See Fig. 63. 
23. Construction of the Circle.— It is 
understood that a circle 
is made with a compass, 
and an ink circle usually 
with a ruling pen. In 
speaking of pens, we 
might say here that 
there are many kinds of 
lettering pens, which will 
be found serviceable, 
when such work is re- 
quired. Good books on 
lettering are : Writing and 
Illuminating and Lettering, 
by Edward Johnston, and 
the booklet called Book of 
Alphabets, by H.W. Shay- 
lor. There are other good 
books on this subject by 
Lewis F. Day and Frank 
Chauteau Brown.

Ellipse. — With a compass measure from 
A to B, Fig. 59, then put the compass 
at C and strike a circle as indicated by 
the dotted line from 
D to E. Where the 
circle intersects the 
horizontal line at D 
and E, place pins. 
See Fig. 60. Also 
at the point C 
stretch a thread 
from E to D around 
C, and tie at C. 
Remove the pin at 
C, and, holding the 
pencil perpendic- 
ularly, describe 
the ellipse shown, see Fig. 60. 

25. Swipe Collections.* — Swipe collec- 
tions is the commercial and expressive 
term for what most artists call documents, 
and this is one of the most important 
items under the list of materials. It con- 
sists of examples clipped from all sources — 
catalogues, booklets, maga- 
zines and newspapers — 
illustrating different tech- 
nique and the expression of 
numerous textures, plaids, 
stripes, vel- 
ve t s and 
detail of all 
kinds. These 
are not to 
be used as 
copies, but 
as a teacher, 
showing ways 
that have 
been used 
with success.

one way of studying, but is advisable 
only when done with intelligence. See 
illustration of a "swipe," Figs. 61 and 
62, 63 and 64, showing a case in which one 
drawing suggests the pose for another. 

26. Textures. — 
In illustrating 
black material in 
pen and ink, con- 
sideration must be 
given to whether 
it is a shiny tex- 
ture with many 
high lights, or a 
dull black silk or 
velvet, with little 
or no shimmer. 
The supporting 
points usually 
catch the light, 
and it is here that 
the whites are left 
or put in. The 
trimming has to 
be kept light, to 
show the detail. 
See Figs. 65 and 

Stripes and 
plaids are both 
done in a manner 
to give the best 
expression pos- 
sible to the special 
design to be re- 
presented. Complicated designs often have 
to be greatly simplified for reduction, 
and care must be taken to give the gen- 
eral effect in the most telling way. See 
Fig. 67. Shepherd plaid, when carefully 
done, is often made by drawing small 
cross stripes in pencil, and filling in 

Fig. 60. — Constructing an ellipse 

alternate square spaces with black. See 
Figs. 67, 68 and 93. 

Dotted and flowered materials should 
not be expressed in a helter-skelter manner, 
but, for satisfactory results, should be 
thought out in 
an orderly way, 
using imaginary 
squares or dia- 
monds for a foun- 
dation. See Figs. 
7, 8, 68, 69 and 83. 
Chiffons must 
keep their trans- 
parent quality, 
usually expressed 
by a delicate line. 
Chinese white, 
when used dis- 
creetly, is often 
helpful for this 

Laces and em- 
broideries are 
carried out either 
in detail or in 
sketchy way, ac- 
cording to require- 
ments. When the 
drawing is needed 
to advertise a 
particular lace, 
greater detail 
must be given 
than when ad- 
vertising the pattern of a dress in which 
any kind of lace can be used. See Fig. 72. 
When the lace is to be done for repro- 
duction in half-tone — in other words, when 
in wash drawing — in an elaborately worked 
out way, i.e., catalogue wash, a dark 
background is made (for white lace) and 

Page Thirty-eight 


the lace is worked out in Chinese white 
over this dark ground. See Fig. 68. 

Wash work embroidery 
is also done with Chinese 
white, but the background 
differs in tone according to 
the sheerness, while the 
solidity of the pattern is 
indicated by heavier lines 
on the shadow side. For- 
tunately, even in catalogues 
of the better character, 
more is being left to the 
imagination, giving a much 
less stilted effect. 

Side plaits, box plaits, 
tucks, gathers, etc., are all 
drawn the way they really 
look in realistic drawings. 
See Fig. 7 for decorative 
treatment. They are also 
made simpler, see Figs. 70 
and 71. 

Stitching is expressed by 
a straight line or a line of 
dots, though there are sev- 
eral different ways of 
making them. See 
Fig. 7. 

Fur is done in masses 
of lustrous dark and 
light with a soft irreg- 
ular edge, avoiding too 
"liney" an effect. The 
treatment, in fact, is 
much the same as for 
feathers and human 
hair. See Figs. 26, 74, 
and 75. In decorative 
drawings many different ways of 
rendering are used, sometimes a line, 
sometimes dots, and sometimes a com-

The adaptation. 

To express textures well, 
the student should cultivate 
a love and appreciation for 
them. It is good to handle 
them, study them, and ob- 
serve them at home, in 
shops, in the street, at 
plays, in museums and in 
pictures, noticing the 
weight they have, the folds 
they make and the lines 
they take. Still-life studies 
of them are helpful. 

Very interesting for the 
study of drapery are the 
drawings of Albrecht Durer. 
See Fig. 109. Observe the 
supporting points. Of 
course there are many dif- 
ferent methods of treatment 
as, for example, the way 
one would treat a decora- 
tive drawing as opposed to 
how one would treat a real- 
istic one. See Figs. 70, 
71, and 72. 

27. Pen and Ink.— 
Pen and ink is a very 
interesting and much 
used medium in fashion 
work. It may be di- 
vided into several 
headings as, work for 
newspapers, for maga- 
zines, and for catalogues. 
And these again may be 
subdivided into groups. 
For instance, there is the pen-and-ink 
neicspaper proper style. This is paid for 
by the newspaper and is often done in a 


Page Thirty-nine 

broad, bold way with no particular at- 
tention given to seams or texture. 
This is also known as editorial, be- 
cause under charge of fashion editors. 
See Fig. 73. 

There is newspaper pattern dravnng. 
This is paid for by the pattern com- 
pany, and here more attention is given 
to seams, tucks, darts, and the like than 
to texture. See Fig. 76. 

Again there is department store adver- 
tising. This is paid for by the de-

partment store, and here seams 
are ignored and attention concen- 
trated on texture, and expression 
of the style. See Fig. 77. This is 
sometimes done in a more general 
illustrative way, as in headings, 
or for a service, when the same 
illustrations are used in stores 
throughout the country; then the 
idea is expressed in an abstract 
way. See Fig. 78. 

A good deal of space is often 
devoted to the newspaper's own 
drawing, while the pattern drawing 
is usually given a column or two, 
and there is not quite so much 
stress laid on the filling of space in 
either of these cases as in the de- 
partment store work. See Figs. 73 
and 77, Ben Day often, and wash 
sometimes, are combined with news- 
paper pen and ink. 

Magazines have the same three 

Page Forty 


classes of pen-and-ink drawings and the 
same principles hold true. See Figs. 70, 71, 
79, and 83. The 
magazines, how- 
ever, are printed 
on superior paper 
and with better ink, 
so that charming 
effects with deli- 
cate washes, 
which would be 
entirely lost in 
newspaper re- 
production, can 
be obtained. See 
Fig. 81. Ben 
Day is used with 
great success in 
magazines. See 
Figs. 79 and 97. 

In the best 
work for cata- 
logues and ad- 
vertising, care is 
taken, not only 
to suggest text- 
ure and detail, 
but to express 
the general char- 
acterisfcs of the 
garment and its 
special charm. 
A good example 
which was used 
for catalogue and 
also magazine

is usually done in a stiffer way than that 
done for magazines and newspapers. This

is because, in the great care used to show 
every seam and detail ,^ much of spontaneity 
is often lost; nev- 
ertheless great 
improvement in 
this matter has 
been made of late 
by a number of

used much more 
of late in both 
newspaper and 
magazine edito- 
rials and adver- 
tising work, but 
it is not often 
used in pattern 
drawing, be- 
cause of the ex- 
actness usually 
required for this 
type of work. 
This decora- 
tive work, while 
so simple and 
permitting of a certain uniqueness, 
requires even a greater knowledge of 
drawing to do it successfully than the

this reason, other

Make your line ex-

cacy of skin (see 
Fig. 65), the light- 
ness of chiffon or 
the heaviness of 
velvet. Make every 
line you put down

thing; this requires 
study and applica- 
tion. Compare Fig. 
82 showing a hard 
line with Figs. 20, 
22, 70, 71 and 97, 
showing a beautiful 
one, and be able to 
tell the difference 
and why. 

It is understood 
that a pencil sketch 
is made first and 
that the ink is put 
in afterwards. Reproductions in pen and 
ink are called line cuts.

thing is to find out the method that is 
most natural to you and improve that 
to the utmost. Do not be discouraged 
if your forte is the delicate, sketchy line 
and if you do not succeed with the pre- 
cise mechanical one. Find the place that

is waiting for you where your particular 
manner is needed. 

Too often those in charge of art de- 
partments do not appreciate any kind of 
work except that which they happen to 
use. Do not let them discourage you, 
but remember the words of Carlyle, 
"The block of granite which is an ob-

stacle in the pathway of the weak be- 
comes a stepping-stone in the pathway of

One way to cultivate the proper ap- 
preciation of beautiful lines is to begin 
by drawing the simplest kind of forms. 
This is certainly advantageous in the case 
of children, and a teacher of such a class 
would no doubt find it useful to give out 
such a lesson as this: 

well-related oval; in the lower left hand 
corner another well-related oval; in the 
lower right-hand corner a well-related 
ellipse. Then, with a very sharp pencil, 
go over these lightly blocked in figures 
with as beautiful lines as possible. This 
problem can then be repeated with the 
idea of filling in these spaces with con- 
ventionalized designs to be used for belt 
buckles or other ornaments.

Page Forty-seven 

The power to make beautiful lines must first 
be obtained with the pencil, before the same 
result can be attained with ink. It is well to 
have the student really know what a good line 
is before beginning a problem of this kind. 
For this purpose have examples of different 
kinds of good and interesting lines, such as 
Japanese prints, some reproductions of good 
line drawings by McQuin, Erte, Dryden, Drian, 
etc. Too much must not be taken for granted 
about students or beginners knowing just what 
a good or beautiful line is, otherwise the mis- 
takes of trying to get a hard, inexpressive, 
mechanical line is often the result. For that 
reason it is well to have drawings made in a

tight, mechanical way to compare 
with those done with more feeling. 
Each student should start making 
a collection of line drawings with 
this comparison idea in view. 

29. Wash. — Wash is a very use- 
ful medium for fashion work, espe- 
cially where photographic effects are 
desired, as, for instance, in cata- 
logues. In newspapers it is not so 
often used as in magazines and cata- 
logues, because the poorer paper on 
which the newspapers are printed does 
not tend to successful reproduction. 

For magazines, just as there are 
different ways of using pen and ink, 
so there are three kinds of wash; the 
editorial, the pattern, and the adver- 

Page Forty-eight 


Using. These again can be divided into 
different styles of work, as the realistic, the 
sketchy, and the decorative. Still again, there 
is pure wash and there is wash combined 
with pen and ink or crayon. 

In the editorial 
type most attention 
is given to the at- 
tractiveness of the 
picture. See Fig. 89, 
done in a decorative 
way, and Fig. 90, 
done in a more re- 
alistic style. 

In the pattern 
type most attention 
is given to the seams 
and the way the 
garments are made, 
and less to the ex- 
pression of any 
particular kind of 
material; in other 
words, the textural 
and artistic sides 
are subordinated to 
the practical pattern. 
This is done in a 
realistic way. See 
Fig. 91. 

In wash for adver- 
tising, attention is 
concentrated on 
presenting the 
garment to the best 
advantage, bringing 
out its best features and its textures. This 
is done in a freer, more artistic manner, 
but often is done in a decorative way 
except in catalogues. The wash is com- 
bined with pen and ink, as in Fig. 92. 
Yet sometimes it is very much finished 

and approaches catalogue work in effect; 
in fact, sometimes the same drawing 
which has been used in a catalogue is 
also used to advertise in the magazines. 
See Fig. 81. 

Wash for cata- 
logues is usually very 
much finished and 
often done without 
much addition of pen 
and ink. See Fig. 53. 
These drawings are 
made with the in- 
tention of advertising 
the garments illus- 
trated, and for that 
reason great stress 
is laid on the mate- 
rials and details. 
Sometimes wash, 
pencil, crayon pencil, 
and pen and ink are 
all combined in a 
drawing; for this, 
careful reproduction 
is required. See 
Fig. 104. 

The materials 
used for wash are 
usually Steinbach or 
Curtis Board (Illus- 
tration Board), but 
for magazine wash, 
kid bristol and some- 
times even smooth 
bristol ( when only a 
light flat wash is desired) are used. You 
will find it good to have Winsor and 
Newton's Lampblack and four brushes. 
Numbers 3 and 4 and 6 and 7 are suitable. 
You should also have a blotter, some rags, 
a sponge for washing off all the color if a

mistake is made, and a large white saucer 
for mixing black. 

Most satisfactory results are obtained 
by having your figure and garment very 
carefully drawn first, then putting in 
your darks or shadows and after these 
darks are absolutely dry, your large 
washes. Give very careful study to the 
texture and the folds. 

It is well, when beginning, to get very 
good drawings showing examples of the 
materials you are endeavoring to express. 
Observe how each material is affected by 
light and how the light looks on the 
folds. See, for example, how in shiny 
black silk the dark side blends into the 
shadow, while on the light side there is 
a crispness and unblended look; also note 

how the small folds often end in a little 

Practice putting darks in with one 
brush and blending then off with another. 
Get so you know just how much water 
you want on your brush to get certain 
effects. Always mix enough of the color 
which you intend to use as the large wash, 
and dip your brush into that instead of into 
the water and back into your paint, this 
lo avoid giving your wash a streaked look. 
The Eberhard Faber green or red eraser is 
a great help to pick out lights. Often a 
wash, when nearly finished, has a very 
discouraging appearance, and sometimes 
all it really needs is the intensifying of the 
blacks and some touching up of the edges, 
buttons and the like, with Chinese white.

To practice large washes com- 
mence by drawing a large square 
and, tipping your board towards 
you, draw your brush very full 
of color across the top of the 
paper from left to right; refill 
the brush, taking up the rivulet 
on the edge of the first line and 
repeat the operation until you 
have covered the square. You 
should have enough paint mixed 
in your saucer to finish that 
square. Very beautiful wash ef- 
fects are often obtained with 
just flat washes. They are very 
artistic and lovely because of 
their simplicity and have none 
of the worked-over look of the 
catalogue work. See Fig. 89. ' 

There is always transparency 
and life to the first wash which 
is lost if you go over 
it often. Never be 
afraid if the wash 
looks too dark. Re- 
member that it will 
dry fighter and resist 
the temptation to 
work on it when part- 
ly dried. You must 
keep it clean and 
bold. Occasionally, 
stand off from your 
work and see how it 

Such things as 
white dots or stripes 
on the dark ground 
of a suit are put in 
with Chinese white 
after the dark material 
is otherwise finished.

Gray effects to be put on over 
black are obtained by mixing 
Chinese white with lampblack; 
this makes a body color and 
can be put on over dark in the 
same manner as pure white. 

If a light streak is desired, 
for instance up one side of the 
skirt, run a clean brush with 
very little water in it up that 
side while the wash is still quite 
wet; this will give the desired 

Sometimes a color is added 
to a wash drawing effectively. 
This is put on like an ordinary 
wash, but for reproduction 
necessitates the using of two 
plates and two printings. See 
Figs. 98 and 99. 

Fig. 93 shows the method of 
procedure, or steps, 
in doing the conven- 
tional wash drawing 
for a catalogue. For- 
tunately this photo- 
graphic method is 
giving way to a more 
artistic one. 

30. Crayon Pencil. 
— Crayon pencil is a 
fascinating medium. 
It is used in pref- 
erence to pencil for 
reproduction, because 
it has not the shiny 
quality of the usual 
lead which prevents 
that from photo- 
graphing well, and 
therefore from being 
good for reproduction.

Chalk, crayon and pencil, however, are 
handled in much the same fashion and 
have much the same effect, and by them 
great beauty and much feeling may be 
expressed. See frontispiece. Nevertheless 
chalk does not 
lend itself so 
readily to detail, 
famous as it is 
for its more illus- 
trative or sketchy 

Wolf crayon 
pencils are very 
good. B and 3B 
Wolf crayon 
pencils and kid 
bristol board are 
the proper ma- 
terials. Kneaded 
rubber and Eber- 
hard Faber green 
or red rubber are 
useful, also an 
emery board pad 
to keep the pencil 
points sharp. 

It is best to 
sketch the draw- 
ing in first with 
the B pencil and 
then put the 
darkest darks in with the 3B and the 
more delicate finishing touches with the 
sharply pointed B. Sometimes stumps 
are used to rub the shadows in, giving the 
drawing less line texture. See Fig. 10. 
Sometimes wash is combined effectively 
with the crayon, then again the crayon 
drawing is carried out almost entirely in 
line. See Figs. 94 and 95. 

Sometimes crayon pencil is used on

rough paper, and the tooth or roughness 
of the paper gives an interesting texture 
to the drawing. See Fig. 45. 

In doing half-tone drawings, especially 
wash, and particularly in decorative work, 
it is well to limit 
oneself to a cer- 
tain number of 
tones or values 
and not to have 
a number of in- 
termediary tints 
and shades. This 
is best done by 
determining how 
many values are 
desired, mixing 
them in separate 
pans (as much as 
is to be needed of 
each) and then 
limiting the 
washes to these. 
This gives a simple 
distinction to the 
finished drawing; 
which is decidedly* 
desirable. See 
Fig. 89. This 
simplicity is lost 
in Figs. 81, 44, 
and 53, which are 
done in such a realistic way because of 
the almost photographic reproduction re- 
quired. Both simplicity and charm are 
lacking in some magazine illustrations, 
and much catalogue work where a realistic, 
or photographic effect is the chief aim. 
See Figs. 103 and 93. A pleasing com- 
promise between the strictly decorative and 
the absolutely photographic can be seen in 
Fig. 45, where line effect is used for shad-

ing, the flat washes being put on over the 
charcoal drawing. The mistake, however, 
of mixing these two styles in one drawing 
must be avoided. 

In instructing a class it is well for the 
teacher to give some simple problems to 
be done in two or more values of wash. 
Many good examples of this method are 
to be found in Composition by Arthur Dow. 

In considering methods the student must 
keep in mind what the purpose of his 
finished work is and then use the method 
which is best adapted to that end. But 
while this is true he must not let the 
method he is using interfere with the ex- 
pression of his own style and individuality 
of work. 

In doing brush work with ink, see Fig.

with this medium and method, on some

standing of the possibilities there de-

many instances be applied to fashion 
work. Fig. 73 and 83 are examples of

been obtained with brush work.

Etching is a method lately used in fashion 
illustration. Drian and Miss Steinmetz 
have both obtained some charming effects in 
this way, but it is a difficult and expensive 
medium to have reproduced, and for that 
reason is not likely to come into general use. 

The student is recommended, in fact 
urged, to become familiar with the work 
and methods used by such artists as Drian, 
Soulie, Brunelleschi, Barbier, Lepape, 
Erte, McQuin, Steinmetz, Helen Dryden, 

Reta Senger, Fern Forrester, Claire Avery, 
and the other artists mentioned in the 
text, as good examples of the best work is 
often the best instructor one could have. 

It is still comparatively seldom that the 
costume designer or illustrator does much 
with textile designing, the field being con- 
sidered somewhat apart, but as a change 
in these matters appears imminent, it 
has seemed expedient to include the method 
of procedure.

Fig. 87. — This illustrates the repeat of a design for silk 
or cotton printing. The dotted lines are not part of 
the design, but are to show that the unit of design is 
repeated in the length every three inches. 


** The kind and color of paper used in sub- 
mitting designs is immaterial. But we 
would suggest that white be used and the 
ground painted in. Tempora paints are 
generally used. At least one full repeat 
and, if the design be small, two or three 
repeats should be shown. The design is 
a guide to the printer or weaver and must 
clearly indicate how the artist desires the 
finished fabric to appear. 

" The technique of woven designs is very 
complicated, but it is only necessary for 
the artist to remember that simple figures 
and few colors are best, that the size of 
each repeat should never exceed twelve 
inches and the repeat is across the web, 
not in the length as it is in printing. 

" The size of the paper, then, would de- 
pend on the size of your design. In order 

that you may clearly understand the part 
that dimension plays in the commercial 
value of a design, we will describe the 
roller over which silk fabrics pass in the 
process of printing: 

*' The roller is 16 inches in circumference 
and three-quarters of an inch in thickness. 
Its width is immaterial because the widths 
of different fabrics vary so greatly. The 
pattern to be printed is engraved in the 
copper. The roller revolves, takes up the 
color from the color box at the bottom; 
the color is removed from the smooth

surfaces by the scraper, or 'doctor' at the 
side, and remaics only in the indented 
portions, which constitute the pattern. The 
cloth, passing just above the doctor, takes 
up the color that remains in the indented 
or engraved portions, and registers the 

" A new cylinder, as we have said above, 
is 16 inches in circumference. When a 
manufacturer wants no more goods printed 
from a certain pattern, the cylinder is 
polished off and engraved with a new pat- 
tern. With each polishing a thickness of 
copper is removed, and the circumference 
of the cylinder of course grows less. When 
a cylinder has been used for a number of 
patterns, the circumference has gradually 
been reduced from 16 to 15 inches, and when 
it becomes less than 15 inches it is junked. ^ FiT 9a 


"You will see, therefore, 
that a pattern (in order to 
be mathematically correct) 
must either take up the 
entire 15 or 16 inches of the 
roller, or must repeat an 
even number of times with- 
in 15 or 16 inches. In 
other words, the pattern must 
be 15 or 16 inches in length, 
or must be repeated at in- 
tervals evenly divisible into 
15 or 16. A three-inch 
repeat would register five 
times on the 15-inch roller; 
a four-inch repeat four times 
on a 16-inch roller; a 5 1 -inch 
repeat, three times on on a 
16-inch roller; there is prac- 
tically no limit to the pos- 
sible variations. A 12-inch 
repeat, on the other hand, 
would be impossible; it would 
have to be diminished to

one-third or one-fourth its size to 
become practicable for printing. Most 
commercial designers work on a 7|-inch 
square for silk. 

" The above refers to the printing of 
silks. For printing cottons, the same / 
process is used. A cotton printing 
roller, however, is 18 inches in cir- 
cumference when new, and for suc- 
ceeding patterns is polished until the cir- 
cumference becomes 16 inches. When 
designing for cottons, therefore, the 
repeat must be figured on the basis 
of a 16- to 18-inch cylinder, corre- 
sponding to the 15- to 16-inch scale 
for silk printing. For example, a three- 
inch repeat could be used for silk or 
cotton being divisible into either 15 or 
18. On the other hand, a six-inch 
repeat could be used only for cotton; 
it is evenly divisible into 18 but is

not evenly divisible into 15 or 16. 
An 8|-inch square is the commer- 
cial standard for use in cotton design- 
ing for dress goods. 

" A pattern is expensive in propor- 
tion to the elaborateness of the 
engraving and the number of colors 
used. It is commercially important, 
therefore, that the arrangement of 
colors be effective and the actual 
number of them be kept down. 
It is better to limit the number 
of colors, if possible, to five or less 
although more colors can be used. 
This refers both to silk and cotton. 

" With no wish to restrict the art- 
ist, we suggest that museums and 
libraries be often consulted for ideas 
and we feel that the artist may 
with profit give some thought to 
the condition of mind of the women 
of America. For this is always

of great importance in determining the 
sale of decorated fabrics. Endeavor to 
make designs that are beautiful and

31. General Theory. — The most con- 
venient and general theory * about color 
is that based on the three primaries, red, 
yellow, and blue. As these colors can- 
not be reproduced by the mixture or 
combination of any other colors, they are 
said to be pure or simple colors, i.e., 

The secondary or binary colors are 
orange, green, and purple. These are 
made by mixing two of the primary colors 
together. This mixture forms the com- 
plement of the remaining primary. Binary 
colors are halfway between the primaries 
on the color chart. 

Red and blue make purple, the com- 
plement of yellow, and directly opposite 
yellow on the color circle. 

Blue and yellow make green, the com- 
plement of red, and directly opposite red 
on the color circle. 

Yellow and red make orange, the com- 
plement of blue, and directly opposite 
blue on the color circle. 

Complementary colors, being directly 
opposite in the spectrum circuit, are 
wholly unrelated in their normal intensity. 
They show strong contrast and enrich 
each other. See Fig. 96. 

A color mixed with its complement 
makes gray. 

* Another Theory: There is another color theory which 
declares the elements of color to be red, green, and violet- 
blue. This is based on spectrum analysis instead of 
pigments and is preferred by some authorities. It changes 
the color wheel somewhat, regarding colors and their 
complements, making red the complement of blue-green, 
green the complement of red-purple, and violet-blue the 
complement of yellow. 

For further explanation see A Color Notation by A. H. 

The coldest color is blue and the warmest 
is its complement, orange, which is the 
farthest away from blue in the color 

Tertiary Colors are those formed by 
the mixture of the secondary colors. 
Thus, green mixed with purple makes 
olive; orange mixed with green makes 
the tertiary citrine; and orange mixed 
with purple gives russet. 

The more a color is grayed the more 
neutral it becomes. 

By normal color is meant the foundation 
color of a scale of tone, the tones getting 
darker or lighter from this foundation. 

By tone is meant the modification of 
any normal color by the addition of 
black or white. 

By tint is meant the light tone of 
any color (formed by the adding of white 
or water to a standard color), 

By shade is meant the dark tone ^f 
any color (formed by the adding oi 
dark or black to a standard color). 

By scale of color is meant the grada- 
tion of a series of tones of the same color 
from the lightest tint through the normal 
or pure color to the darkest shade. 

By hue is meant the departure from 
the original scale of a certain color, to 
a greater or less degree, by the addition 
of a comparatively small proportion of 
another color. For hue think around the 
color sphere; the even steps between the 
binary and adjacent primary in the color 
sphere is called the hue. Thus the step 
between blue and green is blue-green, 
between green and yellow, yellow-green, 
both hues of green. In the same way 

Page Sixty-four 


there are two hues of violet, two of orange, 
and two of red. To change a color to 
a hue add the next-door neighbor (any 
color between two primaries), that is, 
change its place on the spectrum. 
By intensity or chroma is meant the 

think up and down the color sphere; 
yellow is lightest, violet darkest, in value. 
32. Harmonies of Likeness. — Har- 
monies of likeness may be classified as: 
1. Monochromatic, i.e., a group of dif- 
ferent tones, values or intensifies of one

strength or brilliancy of a color. For 
intensity think inward or across the 
sphere. To change intensity, add the 
complementary color; in other words, 
gray it. 

By value is meant the amount of dark 
or light expressed by a color. For value, 

color. This is sometimes called a one 
mode harmony. 

2. Analogous, i.e., made by colors that 
are next to each other in the color circle, 
and are harmonious because they have, 
in different quantities, a common element. 

3. Dominant Harmony, i.e., several colors 


Page Sixty-five 

all influenced or subdued by the same 

33. Harmonies of Difference. — The har- 
monies of difference are: 4. (a) Comple- 
mentary, i.e., two complementary colors 
used together with some unifying ele- 
ment, by the mixing of the one with the 
other or by mixing a little gray with 

(&) Split complementary harmony, i.e., 
the combination of a primary with the 
two colors on each side of its secondary 
complement; as yellow combined with 
redrviolet, and blue-violet, or blue com- 
bined with yellow-orange and red-orange, 
or red combined with yellow-green and 
blue-green. Always begin on the pri- 
mary and split on the complement; never 
split a primary color. 

(c) Double complementary harmony, i.e., 
that made by the combination of two colors 
side by side on the color wheel with their 
direct opposites, as, for instance, violet 
and blue-violet with yellow and yellow- 

5. Triad Harmony, i.e., any harmony of 
three colors that make an equilateral tri- 
angle in the spectrum circle. Example: 
yellow-orange, blue-green and red-violet. 
In producing triad harmony, use hues 
and neutralize to make them harmonious. 
Only one of the three should be wholly

the less intense the color must be and 
the smaller the area the more intense the

Three parts violet and one part yellow 
makes a neutralized violet or gray- violet 
halfway between violet and gray. This 
is true of the other colors.* 

35. The Color Chart. — To make a color 
circle which is composed of the full in- 
tense primary colors, yellow, red, and 
blue, and full intense binary or sec- 
ondary colors, orange, green, and violet, 
and the full, intense intermediate hues, 
yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, 
blue-violet, red-violet and red-orange, 
with the inner circle showing these colors 
half neutralized and the center neutral 
gray, a paper should be used which holds 
water color (a "Keystone" Student's 
Drawing Block nine by twelve is good), 
on which to make the washes. These 
may be put on in small areas from two 
to four inches square. Satisfactory colors 
to use for this chart are Winsor & Newton's 
Gamboge for yellow, Winsor & Newton's 
Alizarine Crimson mixed with Milton 
Bradley's Standard Red for red, Winsor 
& Newton's New Blue for blue, Winsor 
& Newton's Cadmium Orange and Stand- 
ard Red for orange. New Blue and Milton 
Bradley's Standard Green for green, and 
Milton Bradley's Standard Violet for 

(Don't mix standard red, standard 
green, or standard violet with other colors 
for use, except on the chart. They stain 
and settle. They can be used satisfactorily 
only in small areas. The ten-cent tube 
is the size to obtain for the color chart 
— the Winsor & Newton colors ditter in 
price and are more expensive. These are 
the colors that seem the best to obtain 
the desired result.) 

intensity unless relieved by black or white. 

Page Sixty-six 


To obtain the hues such as yellow orange, 
it is understood that a little yellow is 
added to the orange, for yellow-green a 
little yellow to the green, while for blue- 
green a little blue is added to the green, 
etc. The colors of the inner circle, which 
are known as colors at their half intensity, 
as, for instance, gray-orange or gray-yellow, 
are obtained by mixing the color with its 
complement. For example, about three 
parts yellow plus one part violet makes 
a neutralized yellow or gray-yellow. On 
the other hand, three parts violet plus one 
part yellow equals gray-violet, and this is 
true of all the other colors. The three 
primaries mixed give the center, neutral 
gray. (Alizarine crimson, gamboge and 
new blue.) 

Taking a neutral scale showing nine 
degrees of value from white to black, the 
equivalent color values should be found 
for the color chart; as for example, the

This value scale should be used in

Practice on the paper in these small

satisfactory results. are obtained; do not 
get your paint on too thick or too thin. 
Be sure your brush is perfectly clean and 
get one color at a time, always making 
four or five squares that you may be sure 
to obtain a satisfactory value for your 
choice of color. After you have finished 
cut your squares out and compare them 
with your value scale; half closing your 
eyes often helps this comparison. When 
a satisfactory selection has been made, 
use either a quarter, a nickel, or a dime, 
according to the size of the chart you 
wish to make and put these over the 
smoothest part of the washes, draw with 
a sharp pencil a circle, with the coin as 
a guide, and then cut out the colored 
discs. A compass should be used to 
make a guiding line for the placement of 
these small discs, which should be done 
very carefully. A good library paste 
should be used to mount the discs. 

36. Significance of Color. — In Prin- 
ciples of Advertising Arrangement the author 
says: "Color is one of the most interest- 
ing and important elements in nature, 
because the eye, the organ of one of 
the five senses of man, sees nothing 
but color. Form, as we call it, is seen 
only because one color is placed against 
another and by its position and contrast 
makes a shape. And every tone of color 
has a separate meaning — yellow speaks a 
definite thing to those who understand it. 
Blue cannot say what yellow says — 
neither can red or violet." 

In a folder gotten up by the Art in 
Trades Club of New York City, valuable 
information was given in a strikingly simple 
and concise way under the heading, The 


Page Sixty-seven 

Principles of Color Harmony, which reads 
as follows: 

" Psychological Significance. — Color, as 
it varies in hue, value and intensity, by 
its intrinsic qualities and the association 
of ideas, excites certain definite thoughts 
and feelings in the human mind. 

Hues. — Blue — cold, formal and distant. 

Green — cool and restful. 

Yellow — cheerful, brilliant and unify- 

Red — warm, rich and aggressive. 

Orange — hot, striking, but decorative. 

Violet — mournful, mystic, and darken- 

Value. — Light color tones express youth, 
femininity, gayety and informality. 

Dark color tones express strength, dig- 
nity, repose, and seriousness. 

Intensity. — Colors in their full intensity 
are strong, loud, vital, and elemental in 

Colors that have been neutralized ex- 
press subtlety, refinement and charm. 

Balance in Color Harmony. — Colors to 
balance in harmony must be similar in 
intensity and area. If dissimilar, the in- 
tensity must vary in inverse proportions 
to the area. 

Backgrounds should be less intense than 
objects to be shown on them." (It is not 
well to figure a whole warm object on a 
cold background.) 

37. Sources of Color Schemes. — Many 
are the designer's sources for color schemes. 
With the knowledge of what harmony 
consists in, he may go to nature and find 
an endless variety in the animal, mineral, 
bird, reptile and flower kingdoms, and 
in atmospheric effects. Or he may go 
to museums and study china and glass 
and textiles, such as tapestries, rugs and 

old embroidery and laces. Again, he may 
go to picture galleries and get inspira- 
tions from old and new Japanese prints 
and from old and new masters in art. 
See illustration of the gown adaptation 
from Whistler's Nocturne, Fig. 102. 

In deciding what colors are becoming; 
it must be remembered that a color not 
only reflects its own tint on the face of 
the wearer, but also its complement (this 
is called simultaneous contrast) . Therefore, 
the eyes, hair, and skin of the wearer must 
be considered and such a color for the 
dress chosen as will neither give the per- 
son a faded, ghastly tinge nor too harsh 
and florid an appearance, but which will 
enhance his or her particular beauty. In 
large areas neutralized colors are always 
best — avoid the harshness of too much 

A very ugly combination may result 
from putting together two different hues 
of the same color. Simultaneous contrast 
can take place with a disastrous result. 
This is often what we mean when we 
say one blue kills another or one red kills 
another red. On account of this matter 
of hue, things that are the same color 
but of a different hue do not always 

Be careful about using together colors 
of the same intensity, unless both or one 
is much neutralized. It is usually more 
satisfactory to use the more brilliant 
color in the smaller quantity. 

Modern colors have taken on many 
titles which they change from season to 
season, and which, while catering to the 
imagination of the public are quite over- 
whelming. This is wittily expressed in 
the following quotation from Dr. Frank 

Page Sixty-eight 




Dr. Frank Crane 

"Yes," said the saleslady, "we have all the new oflBcial 
Panama Exposition colors!" 

"For instance?" 

"Well, there's flagpole red, wall blue, exposition gold, 
travertine, lattice green, and " 

"But haven't you anything in just plain colors — red, 
green, or yellow and so on?" 

"Oh, no!" 

"Aren't those reds over there?" 

"We don't say red, you know, any more." 

"What then?" 

"Well, this is cerise and those are raspberry, brick 
dust, cardinal, crushed strawberry, carnation, and — let 
me see — this is old rose, this is ashes of roses, this is 
watermelon, this is sunset pink." 

"You interest me. How about blues?" 

"Why, there is navy blue, and Copenhagen blue, and 
Alice Blue, and old blue, and ultramarine blue, and sky 
blue, and robin's egg blue, and " 

"That's enough. I'm afraid you'll say Monday blue. 
Tell me some yellows." 

"Oh, lots of them! Straw, champagne, dust, tan, ca- 
nary, lemon, orange, tango, sand, and so on." 


"Then we have in greens, Nile green, parrot green, 
lettuce green, Alice green, emerald green, Irish green. 
Reseda and others."

38. Applying Colors. — In painting, be- 
gin at the top and color downward, from 
your left to your right. The edge of a 
color may be softened by a clean, damp 
brush; this is necessary in doing velvets. 
"Where shiny taffeta is desired, let the 
paints dry in a harder line to give crisp- 
ness and do not work over while still wet. 

Cold colors serve as shadows to warmer 
colors and should be laid on first; gen- 
erally, warm colors over cold should be 
the rule. After the sketch is finished 
and dry, unfinished-looking darks can be 
picked up with some darker darks and 
the high lights on the edges of coats, 
pockets, tucks, etc., can be brought out 
by thin, steady, crisp Chinese w^hite 
lines when detail is desired. 

Prussian Blue, Lake, and Sepia mixed 
make gray. One way of graying, or 
neutralizing, a color is by adding a little 
of its complement; but Payne's Gray 
and black are often of value for this use 
in dressmakers' sketches and commercial 

All brushes must be kept clean and rinsed 
after use. Never leave them in the water. 
Take plenty of color in your brush and 
try first on a piece of spare paper to see 
that you have the right tone and that 
the brush is not too wet or too dry. 

WTien you intend covering a space with 
a flat tone, have enough color mixed to 
go from the top to the bottom and from 


side to side without doing any more 
mixing or dipping your brush again in 
the water. Have the drawing board tilted 
toward you and enough color in your 
brush to ensure its keeping the little 
rivulet going without the danger of dry 
spots. For practice work it is well to 
make some eight-inch squares and to try 
covering their surfaces with a uniform 

When you are making a dressmaker's 
sketch in white, it is sometimes helpful to 
put a little color in the background, up on 
one side and down on the other, not mak- 
ing it too intense, and taking care to 
soften the edge. 

When wishing to work in opaque (or 
body color), add a little Chinese White 
to your color. This is often useful for 
reproduction. What are known as Devoe's 
Show Card Colors are good for tempera 
fashion work. Theatrical costume designs 
are often carried out in this way.* 

Thompson's White has a stiff quality 
which makes it of value in doing dress- 
makers' sketches, where raised buttons, 
beads, embroidery, lace, etc., are desired. 
Put it on rather dry and let it stand 
until all moisture seems gone before touch- 
ing up these buttons, beads, or lace with 
color, gold or silver. Ink is often used 
with color, both for dressmakers' sketches 
and for reproduction. 

Have your sketch always carefully made 
in pencil, putting in the details last. 
Put in your big washes first and keep the 
whole sketch going, being particular not 
to concentrate too much on any one 
part. Avoid " niggling "; keep your wash 
clean and bold.

tones — vermilion, good lips and color in

cheeks. There are two ways of putting 
this color on; one by putting the orange 
vermilion in a very light tone over all 
the flesh and then, when dry, adding the 
desired color to the cheeks (preferably 
having it high on the cheek bone) and 
quickly soft^ening the edge; the other 
way by stippling or putting on the added 
color with the tiny point of the brush 
while the all-over flesh tone is still 

Always remember that colors dry much 
lighter. Blue and bluish gray make good 
shadows for white. In doing a dress- 
maker's sketch in dark blue or black, 
always keep the color transparent and 
lighter than the real material, though 
having the same effect, so that the detail 
will be shown. 

The following supplies will be found 
useful in doing this kind of water-color 
work : 

Colors. — Winsor & Newton colors are 
preferred. Less expensive but good stu- 
dent's colors are Devoe and Favor Ruhl. 
It is best to buy the box separately and 
fill it with the colors desired. Tubes dry 
up, therefore, unless colors are to be used 
constantly or in quantitj^ it is more eco- 
nomical to buy half pans, with the excep- 

tion of black and white; these should 
be bought in the tubes. 

One should have Prussian Blue and 
either New Blue, Cobalt, or Ultramarine, 
Payne's Gray, Emerald Green, Hooker's 
Green 1, Hooker's Green 2, Lemon Yellow, 
Yellow Ochre, Naples Yellow, Raw Sienna, 
Burnt Sienna, either Rose Madder, Car- 
mine or Crimson Lake, Vermilion, Orange 
Vermilion, Mauve, Sepia, Van-Dyck 
Brown, Gold, and Silver. In tubes, Lamp- 
black and \Miite, and Thompson's White 
if raised work is desired. This list is 
found convenient in saving the time of 
mixing in doing dressmakers' colored 

The best colors to get in the Devoe 
Show Card list are White, Light Yellow, 
Orange, Light Red, Magenta, Mauve, 
Dark Blue, Light Blue, and Green. Some 
artists use letterine when a shiny finish 
is wanted. 

Brushes. Rubens, and Winsor & New- 
ton red sable brushes are recommended. 
Good sizes for fashion work are Nos. 3 
and 4, and 6 and 7. Devoe or some less 
expensive brushes should be used for ink, 
Chinese white, gold, and silver, which 
are injurio\is to brushes. Bristle brushes 
are good for a steady, broad line.

39. Fundamentals of Good Design. — 

Order is the law of all design, No matter 
how far we allow our fancy to go, we should 
never lose sight of the 
principles of design; 6a/- 
-imce, rhythm, and harmony. 
Furthermore, we should 
always aim at simplicity 
and appropriateness. 

Like the architect, we 
should study ancient and 
mediaeval examples as well 
as later ones. Like his, 
cur problem is two-fold: 
First, to find out the best 
and most beautiful that 
can be conceived, and 
second, to adapt it to our 
own present-day needs. 

Great heed must be 
given, fundamentally, to 
personal characteristics. 
The materials used for 
comfort or ornament can 
then be so chosen and so 
treated as to neutralize 
individual defects or de- 
ficiencies and to enhance 
every good point.* 

40. Facts Always to be 
Kept in Mind. — Common 
sense and observation 
show that stout people 
should avoid large head 

^ decorations, and hats which 
make a person appear 
shorter than their real height, as they 
enlarge the head proportion. They 
should also avoid sleeves that are very

of crocuses. 

full at the shoulder and skirts that 

are very narrow at the bottom, as these 

accentuate the size of the hips and trunk. 

Horizontal lines make 

the figure look shorter 

and stouter; the shorter 

the vertical lines are 

made, the shorter the 

person will seem. Bands 

of contrasting tone or 

color accentuate the line 

effect. Stout people should 

avoid large figured goods 

and materials too bright 

or too light in color. 

Thin people with very 
narrow, sloping shoulders 
should avoid the exagger- 
ated kimona and shoulder 
seams drooping over the 
arm, and should keep to 
the horizontal shoulder 
lines, if they do not wish 
to emphasize this personal 

Tall, thin people should 
avoid long vertical lines 
such as very definite or 
large stripes, for these lines 
accentuate height. This 
is not true of inconspicu- 
ous stripes. They should 
avoid a coat line which 
cuts them into awkward 
lengths Remember the 
Greek law: When two 
lines are in good relation to each other, 
the shorter comes between one-half and 
two-thirds of the longer line. 

* " Woman as Decoration " by Emily Burbank, will be found profitable reading in this connection. 

Page Seventy-six 


Tall, thin people should 
avoid narrow-chested effects 
and clothes that fit too 

Everybody should beware 
of too conspicuous plaids and 
stripes or figured materials. 
As a rule do not combine 
large figured materials with 
small figured materials.* 

Small people, when se- 
lecting figured goods for themselves, 
should always get small figured materials, 
emphasizing their daintiness. Note this 
even in plain stuffs, as, for instance, 
how a narrow-ribbed corduroy suits a 
small person better than a wide-ribbed one. 

Figured, striped, or plaid materials, 
which approach plain material, will stand 
more trimming than those in which the 
designs are emphatically decorative. 

Equal or nearly equal amounts of dark 
and light are unsatisfactory unless they 
approach an "all-over" tone. 

When other things are equal, square

shoulders give one an ap- 
pearance of being taller than 
sloping shoulders, and the 
higher the waist line the 
greater the apparent height . 
A narrow belt makes the 
waist appear smaller and 
longer, whereas a wide girdle 
gives the appearance of a 
broader, shorter waist (if 
above the waist line). 
Over-decoration is always bad. 
Broken line effects are always bad. 
(As, for example, waists and skirts with 
seemingly no connection.) 

A continuation of waist line into the 
skirt is good. 

Light colors near the face are good. 
When one striking note of color is used 
(as in a belt), it should have a repetition 
elsewhere (as in a touch on the sleeve 
and waist). 

41. Sources of Designs. Bearing the 
foregoing facts in mind, we may draw our 
inspiration from museums, libraries, things

in nature, or from any source that appeals 
to us, and start our design. See Fig. 101. 

Fig. 100 shows us how 
Mile. Jacqueline found 
her inspiration for a hat 
in a bowl of tulips. As 
for the first prize evening 
dress of the Times Prize 
Contest for Original Amer- 
ican Designs, made by 
the writer and shown by 
Fig. 102, the Times has 
given the following de- 
scription of its source. 

Whistler s well-known Nocturne 
furnished the inspiration for this 
evening gown, which owes its 
distinction to subtlety of color 
and grace of line. It is, unfortu- 
nately, impossible in a sketch to 
do justice to the extraordinary 
feeling for color which the de- 
signer has shown in her selection 
and handling of materials, be- 
cause she has obtained her effect 
by using semitransparent color 
over contrasting color. 

She has secured a faithful echo 
of the Nocturne's blue-green, 
gray-brown harmonies by laying 
pastel-blue chiffon, faintly green 
tinged, over putty color. The 
girdle is in a deeper green-blue 
and its Oriental embroidery is 
worked out in blues and gold and 
the vivid flame color of which 
there is one single glint in the 
Whistler picture. 

Another note of blue is sounded 
in the necklace of wooden beads, 
the smaller beads catching up the 
wing shoulder draperies. 

The waist made for the 
Ladies^ Home Journal, 
shown in Fig. 103, was 
suggested by the Lily of the Valley. Fig.

was adapted from an Arizona pine, and 
Fig. 99, Pattern No. 8079, from a Hopi 
Indian woman's dress. 

If the designer's imag- 
ination needs stimulating 
to get away from the 
commonplace, see what 
music or poetry will do 
to help. Notice how, 
when either are sad, one 
thinks in subdued grays 
and violets and dull blues; 
when they are joyous, 
pinks, yellows and less 
somber colors come into 
one's mind.* 

The designer has such 
an immense store-house 
from which to draw that, 
when his eyes are once 
opened to the endless 
treasures that are wait- 
ing to inspire him, his 
world is as full of wonders 
as the vaulted chambers 
of the Forty Thieves, or 
the untold treasures in 
the cavern of Aladdin. 

Appreciation is needful 
and it is necessary to 
gain this love and under- 
standing of the beautiful 
which really comprises 
what we call taste. We 
should know something 
of the art of the past 
as well as the costumes 
of these periods, so rich 
in material is that of the 
Egyptians, Greeks, Ro- 
mans, Assyrians, and Byzantines, as 
well as that of the cruder times of the

42. Hats.— Wlien 
seen from the side, 
the lines of the crown 
of the hat should not 
extend beyond the 
line of the forehead 
nor beyond the hair 
in the back. If the 
hair extends far in 
the back, the hat 
should come between 
the head and end of 
the hair in order prop- 
erly to balance with 
the spinal column. 

People with small 
or narrow faces 
require smaller hats than those with 
large faces, to whom larger hats are 
becoming. Care should be taken not to 
accentuate undesirable lines or features 
by too strong repetition or opposition. 
Try rather to neutralize such. 

The milliner's problem is allied to that

of the sculptor in so much as the effect 
is to be viewed from every side and, ac- 
cording to Beau Brummel, the most 
important part of a woman's hat is the 
back. Beside this, the laws of propor- 
tion demand that we 
consider not alone 
the relation of the 
hat to the head, but 
also the relation cf 
the head and hat to 
the entire figure. 
(For illustration, 
headgear too large 
for the figure gives 
a clumsy, awkward 

Thus, no matter 
what fashion decrees, 
the law of proper 
proportions for every 
individual should be 
sought out and 
obeyed, even if it 
brings about a dis- 
agreement with the 
prevailing modes. 

43. Designing 
Hats.— The height 
of any hat, generally 
speaking, should not 
be more than three- 
quarters the depth of 
the face. (That is, 
the length of the face 
the eyebrows.) The 
greatest width of a wide hat should not 
exceed three times the width of the 
wearer's face, including the ears and the 
hair at the sides of the head. The greater 
width is often at the left side. 

The crown of a hat is very important

and must appear to cover the head and of clothes as studies in the flat and must 
also any puffs of hair. People with large aim to make them please from every 

side. At the 
same time we 
must not lose 

heads should 
not wear hats 
with small 
crowns. On the 
other hand, 
people with 
long, thin faces, 
and plainly 
arranged hair 
should not wear 
hats with 
crowns wider 
than the width 
of their faces 
and hair. If we 
are ever to 
overcome our 
bromidic ten- 
dency in dress, 
we shall have 
to cultivate an 
appreciation of 
personality and 
character and 
become so in- 
terested in type 
that we will 
resist our hith- 
erto sheep-like 
tendency to 
follow the 

modes, even when they distort and cari- 
cature us. 

The designs shown in Fig. 104 were 
made by Kelly for the Globe. In designing 
we must get away from the consideration 

sight of unity 
and must never 
let distracting 
details interfere 
with the centre 
of interest 
which is usually 
the head. In 
other words, we 
should aim to 
make personality 
dominate the 

For a most 
telling illustra- 
tion of this 
last point, 
study the paint- 
in gs of Rem- 
brandt. Note 
how all his 
textures and 
tones of gar- 
ments are made 
subs er vient 
to his char- 
acterization, how all these lead up to the 
head and face and seem arranged to per- 
fectly reveal the individuality of the 
sitter, his occupation, his walk in life, and 
his inmost character. 

Scale must be considered in the combination of textures, for instance crystal bugles and pearl trimming 
that could be successfully combined with delicate chiffons or silk would be wholly inappropriate with serge, while an 
Indian bead ornament that would be suitable with the serge would be out of place with the chiffon. Fluffy chiffon and 
lacy things or baby pinks or blues are out of place with tailored or mannish things. These points should be given 
serious consideration in connection with such accessories as parasols, hats, shoes, gloves, jewelry and dress trimmings. 

Some books that bear directly on designing are Principles of Correct Dress by Florence Hull Winterburn, Color Harmo- 
nies in Dress by G. A. Audsley, What Dress Makes of Us by Dorothy Quigley, Textile and Costume Designing by Ellisworth.

44. Value of the Silhouette.— The Sil- 
houette is the foundation of all fashions, 
and it is most interesting to study its 
varied aspect through the centuries. Taken 
in a literal sense, it so simplifies the cos- 
tumes of the period 
that the many errors 
now seen in the cos- 
tume world are un- 
necessary to even the 
novice. Much less 
necessary are the glar- 

Fig. 105. — ^The gorget. 

mg mistaKes we now 
see in print in regard 
to Moyen Age and Renaissance costumes, 
as well as those of the eighteenth and 
nineteenth centuries, that period of much 
uncertainty about the hoop and Empire, 
the crinoline and bustle. For 
this reason it seems advantage- 
ous, as well as interesting, to 
become thoroughly familiar with 
costume silhouettes of all ages. 

The silhouette classifies, sim- 
plifies, and so condenses details 
that both time and trouble are 
saved. Curiously enough, this 
saving is what its name sig- 
nifies, as it is taken from the 
name of Etienne de Silhouette, 
Minister of Finance to France 
in 1759, whose public economy in trying 
to avert national bankruptcy during the 
reign of Louis XV caused his name to 
be given to things ostensibly economical.

centuries (the tenth and eleventh were 
so nearly like the twelfth and thirteenth 
that drawings are omitted) . 
The effect is of everything 
hung from the shoulder 
and all garments rather 
loose. The head was usually 
more or less bound or wrap- 
ped around, though at 
certain times in certain 
localities the hair was worn 
in long braids. The four- 
teenth century shows the

belong to the Moyen Age, to things that

It is interesting to see these 
clothes so beautifully described 
in the Gothic Tapestries and 
illuminated books of the time 
and the efiSgies in churches.

with sometimes a girdle, remaining so 
until the fifteenth century. 

46. Religious Orders. A picturesque 
touch of this early costume may be noted 
today in the dress of the nuns and sisters. 
The Dominican nuns wear practically 
the same garb as when their order was 
instituted by Saint Dominic in 1218, 
including the rosary, which was his in- 
novation. Many religious orders were 
founded in the eleventh, twelfth, thir- 
teenth, and fourteenth centuries as, for 

example, the Sisterhood of the Annunci- 
ation at Bourges by St. Jeanne de Valois, 
daughter of Louis XI of France. Today 
they bring to us the legend, beauty and 
romance of those dark ages. They breathe 
castles, crusades, monasteries, and con- 

In the fifteenth century, as the pointed 
arches of the Gothic architecture grew 
more pointed, the head covering or hen- 
nens (see Figs. 106 and 110) as well as 
the shoes followed suit, so that in this 


Page Eighty-five 

century came the high-water mark of 
extremes. To this day we find left over 
traces of these headdresses in some of the 
costumes of the 
peasants in re- 
mote districts on 
the continent. 

47. Sixteenth 
Century.— The 
sixteenth cen- 
tury found 
great changes, 
on sea and land. 
Printing had 
been invented, 
America had 
been discovered 
and the first 
watches made. 
The silhouette 
was greatly 
changed. The 
changed the 
architecture of 
dress as well 
as of every- 
thing else. Al- 
brecht Diirer 
has left us 
won d erf ul 
sketches of the 
early part of 
this century, 
the originals of 
which are in 
Nuremberg, see 
Fig. 109. 

We are all familiar with the slashed 
sleeves of Henry VIH and his queens 
(1509-1547) immortalized in the portraits 


by Hans Holbein. There was a stiffening 
of the figure and a tendency toward the 
smaller waistline in the sixteenth century. 
- - It might be 

well to say 
,-^^ . here that in the 

twelfth century 
lacing is sup- 
posed to have 
come in. Cal- 
throp tells us 
in his history 
of English 
Costume, "Not 
that the lacing 
was very tight, 
but it com- 
menced the 
habit and the 
habit begat the 
harm, and the 
thing grew un- 
til it arrived 
finally at the 
tissue figure 
which titters 
and totters 
through the 
era." Up to the 
fifteenth cen- 
tury is notice- 
able a sense of 
looseness, of 
being more or 
less supported from the shoulders, giving 
the straight lines of the middle ages. 
The fifteenth century was transitional;

lent illustrations of 
these. The Quaker 
dress is the survival 
of the costume of

(1660-1685), although 
the hat is minus the 
feather — plain linen 
takes the place of 
lace. The shoes are the 
same, but without the 
ribbon or roses, really 
similar in every way

The portrait painters 
have done nobly in 
preserving for us the 
fashions of the times 
through the costumes 
worn by their distin- 
guished sitters. Such 
men as Velasquez, Van 
Dyck, and Rubens in 
the seventeenth cen- 
tury, and in the eigh- 
teenth Watteau, 
Fragonard, Nattier,

valuable documents.

tume to-day — the

bonnet and apron 
of the English work- 
ing class.

new, for anything

We have left now the hoop of the 
eighteenth century, and have come to 
the nineteenth century with its Empire 
and charming 1830 costume, which always 
makes one think of nosegays and old- 
fashioned valentines (see Fig. 112) and 
the crinoline of 1840, which made the 
skirt grow wider until 1864. (To get the 
atmosphere of this time, look at George 
Du Manner's illustrations of Owen Mere- 
dith's "Lucile.") Fashion then took a 
turn and the skirt began in 1865 to grow 
narrower until in the winter of 1869-1870 
the bustle and the draped skirts appeared. 
In this one century, therefore, with its 
narrow skirts, its bell skirts, its wide 
skirts, its bustles, and its draped skirts, 
there were really many more definite 
changes than in the ten centuries of sil- 
houettes we have been examining. 

While speaking of skirts, small mention 
has been made of sleeves, but they sil- 


houette quite as well as the other parts 
of the costume, with even the added in- 
terest of the fact that down through the 
centuries the sleeves of men and women 
were very much alike, no bigger no 
smaller, until the nineteenth century, when 
the leg-of-mutton sleeve was affected also 
by men. That seems to have been, how- 
ever, the time of emancipation, for then 
men's sleeves became small and have re- 
mained so ever since. 

The thirty beautiful little period dolls 
in the Metropolitan Museum illustrate 
how truly the silhouette has kept for us 
the fleeting shadow of the passing cen- 
turies. Let us then not deny or push 
- aside the silhouette as of small importance. 
Historically it is valuable, and the paths 
it leads us through in the study of cos- 
tume are full of beauty and varied interest. 
It is with the silhouette in mind that we 
should observe every fashion.

50. Primitive Design. — Primitive de- 
sign, often so fresh and simple in treat- 
ment and character, does not differ much 
in units. The United States Government 
pubhshed in 1894 a report that the results 
of its researches showed 
that the san^e swasticka 
used in prehistoric America 
had also been found in 
India, Eastern Turkestan, 
Northern Europe, Southern 
Europe, Asia Minor, 
Greece, Rome, Northern 
Africa and Byzantium. So 
much symbolic significance 
is often attached, or some 
strict religious meaning, 
that design is a deep and 
interesting subject from an 
ethnological point of view, 
but "simple pictorial ex- 
pressions are of world 
usage and are not suffici- 
ently intricate to consti- 
tute original thought." 
In these the student of 
design, however, can find 
splendid motives for mod- 
ern treatment. See Fig. 114. This ma- 
terial was designed from a unit on an 
Indian basket. 

51. Influence in Design. — We know 
that the early civilized races had inter- 
course, and we see the influence of this 
in their designs. We find Greek influence 
in the art of China, and for hundreds 
of years B.C. the arts of Assyrians, Egyp- 
tians, and Persians were allied through 

Fig. 114 

wars and conquests, and their designs 
were often similar. 

The affinity between the Art of India 
and Japan is close on account of Bud- 
dhism, which exercises a strong influence 
over both peoples. The 
Art of Japan and China 
is also somewhat similar; 
indeed, at times the dif- 
ferences are difficult to 
determine. The Japanese 
have a greater love for 
detail and do not con- 
ventionaHze in as broad 
a way as the Chinese, 
but many of their forms 
are identical. It is inter- 
esting to know that, where 
this is the case, the in- 
fluence can be traced to 

The Japanese in their 
designs show a great love 
for nature — flowers, moun- 
tains, waves, dragons, 
tortoises, etc., and the 
method used is usually 
picturesque (in spite of 
its interesting conventionality) instead of 

52. Early Fabrics and Designs. — In 
outlining period fabric design, Egypt must 
first be mentioned, where weaving was 
known 3000 b.c. Examples of ancient 
fabrics dating as far back as 1000 B.C. 
can be seen in the Louvre, Paris. While 
we know that checkered rugs were woven, 
we find that garments during the Old

Kingdom, Dark Ages, 
Middle Kingdom, 
Period of Shepherd 
Kings, and New 
Empire, i.e., from 
2980 B.C. until 945 
B.C., were usually 
made of linen and 
wool, woven by hand. 
While the dyes used 
were principally red, 
blue, and saffron, 
white seems to have 
been most worn. The 
material was plain, 
the decoration, if any, 
being embroidery at 
the hem. While fond 
of ornamentation, the 
people during this 
time seem to have 
depended on their 

wigs and headdresses, collars, hanging 
straps, armlets, and leg decorations, 
and not to have introduced figures in 
their weaves. See Fig. 116. 

The Copts or Egyptian Christians, 
like the Greeks and Romans, wore 
wonderfully woven or embroidered 
bands on their garments, the color 
and designs of which are most inter- 
esting. Good examples are to be seen 
in the Coptic Room, Metropolitan 
Museum of Art, and in the Cooper 
Union Museum. 

53. Greek Dress. — The Greeks used 
wool linen, and silk. Linen and silk 
were used for the more extravagant 
costumes of the later period, though 
they had cotton in small quantities. 
Cotton belonged to India; it did not 
become known to Europe until the 

invasion of Alexander the Great. It was 
too expensive for large garments and was 
a deep yellow in color.. 

The Doric and Ionic chitons, or dress, 
and the himation, or cloak, were used in 
different colors. Blue and Tyrian purple 
as well as red and yellow were popular. 
Different borders were often combined 
in the Greek costume with an all-over 
design. See Fig. 115. The designs were 
frequently emblems, and birds, animals 
or flowers. The garments were woven 
in one piece which was complete in itself. 
The long, graceful folds of this single 
garment produced a decorative and simple 
effect, and it is interesting to note also 
the different effects obtainable by chang- 
ing the position of the girdle. This was 
worn at the waist in the Archaic period.

over the hips in the Golden Age, and 
under the arms at the last period. 

Interesting and detailed accounts of 
Greek costumes may be found in Evans's 
Greek Dress and Edith Abraham's Greek 
Dress; good illustrations in Hope's Cos- 
tume of the Ancients. 

54. Roman Dress. — The Romans and 
Greeks imported much material from 
Babylonia. Some of the silk is described 
as having a nap on both sides (velvet), 
and as gold, scarlet and purple in color. 
The Roman women wore a tunic, a stola 
(like the Grecian chiton), and a palla, 
which corresponded to a Roman man's 
toga, or a Grecian woman's himation. 
The Roman women added a ruffle to 
their dress which was often elaborately 
decorated. Silk was at a premium, but 
was frequently mixed in weaving with wool 
or linen. With the exception of more 
elaboration, the fabrics did not differ 
much from the Grecian.

55. Influ- 
ence of the 
E a s t .— 
seem always 
to have 
drawn their 
from the 
East. We 
find the 
Gauls after 
the conquest 
of Csesar, 
55 B.C., 
adopting a 
m odified 
form of the 
Roman cos- 
tume. The 
Franks in 
taking possession of Gaul gradually (from 
the third to the fifth century a.d.), while 
they did not part with their costume as 
a whole", the women retaining their veils 
for some ten centuries, adopted the Byzan- 
tine styles, for the Eastern influence of 
the Roman Empire continued after the 
arrival of the Franks. We find both men 
and women in the ninth and tenth and 
twelfth centuries wearing stuffs brought 
from the East, even after the art of 
embroidery became generally understood, 
and tapestry weaving and applique work 
was carried on in Europe. 

56. Weaving. — WTiile mechanical weav- 
ing was done in Egypt 2000 B.C., the more 
complex use of the shuttles by vhich 
figures were produced without embroider- 
ing was not known until 200 a.d. It was 
then done by the Syrian weavers in the

Eastern Roman Empire. 
For many years the devel- 
opment of weaving was 
slow, and the repeat pat- 
terns were of the simplest 
kind. Ornamental silks 
were first produced in 
Europe 500 a.d.; they 
were Roman and Byzantine 

to the twelfth century. 
These were sometimes 
linked together, large circles 

Fig. 120.— XVI Century trunk 

The design consisting of 
a circle or square frame 
developed in the first cen- 
tury; for the next five 
hundred years circles or 
squares, sometimes filled 
with Persian or Syrian 
floral detail, persisted. 
This same design was used 
for centuries afterwards for 
stained glass. 

About 400 to 600 a.d. 
broken circles came in, the 
upper and lower segments 
spreading out to form 
bands. Circles continued 

Fig. 119.— XIII Century formal 

being joined by small ones 
at points of contact, and 
the patterns often becom- 
ing quite elaborate. The 
Saracenic hexagon geomet- 

rically arranged was also 
used. Up to the thirteenth 
century a formal arrange- 
ment was often followed, 
consisting of balanced 
groupings of birds, beasts, 
and men placed face to 
face or back to back.

Century scroll motive. 

Fig. 122.— XIV and XV Century 
animal arrangement. 

The ogival form is a 
form of design in which 
the joining circles are 
brought into acute juncture, 
forming ovals. This design 
came in about 800 a.d., 
and like most things that 
were pointed, it continued 
through the Gothic period. 

In 700 A.D. Spain was 
progressing with silk weav- 
ing. About this time also, 
merchants from Syria 
opened establishments in 
Paris. In 800 a.d., the 
Daughters of Charlemagne 


Page Ninety-five 

did silk weaving, but up to the eleventh 
century the making of fine fabrics was 
practically monopolized by Athens, Thebes, 
Corinth, and Constantinople. 

No great extravagance had reached 
France before 
this. In the 
tenth century 
we read of its 
king, Charles 
the Simple, 
possessing but 
three shirts 
In the four- 
teenth century 
Isabeau de 
Baviere, com- 
ing to marry 
Charles VI, 
was thought to 
be showing an 
degree of lux- 
ury in having 
three dozen 
chemises in 
her trousseau. 

The return of the Crusaders initiated 
the nobility of France into the luxury of 
the Orient. 

57. Use of Gold Thread. — Drawn gold 
thread was not used in early fabrics, but 
gold leaf on paper rolled around a fine 
thread of silk was employed. Sicilian 
fabrics of the thirteenth and fourteenth 
centuries frequently show a purple ground 
of twilled silk with birds and foliage 
formed by gold thread weft. Saracenic 
or Hispano-Moresque fabrics of Spain are 
distinguished by splendid crimson or dark 
blue conventional patterns of silk upon 
a yellow ground, and by frequent use of 

Fig. 123. 

strips of gilded parchment in place of 
rolled gilt thread. Undoubtedly through 
the influence of the Crusades, the Sicilian 
weavers of the thirteenth and fourteenth 
centuries produced many fabrics enriched 

with winged 
lions, crosses, 
crowns, rayed 
stars, harts, or 
birds, linked 
together with 
floriations or 
armorial bear- 
ings. See Fig. 

58. Parti- 
colored Dress. 
— The same 
in f 1 uence 
which brought 
with the Per- 
Gothic the 
of heraldic 
forms, such as 
shields, crests 
and badges, found women of rank wearing 
parti-colored dresses; a division which 
practically cut the figure in half, the right 
side representing the arms of the husband, 
the left that of the lady's own family. 
See Fig. 118. 

Late in 1200 a.d. this character of 
design was introduced into Northern Italy. 
Genoa adopted much that was Persian 
from the twelfth to the seventeenth 
centuries, and in the fifteenth century, 
when Louis XI encouraged the art of 
weaving in France at Tours, and later 
at Lj'ons under Francis I (1515), the 
Persian and Italian fabrics were closely

The Oriental character of design in 
textiles did not entirely disappear until 
the seventeenth century when the gardens 
of Versailles and the Trianons under 
Louis XIV inspired the use of European 

59. Classification of Fabric Designs. — 
The following brief classification will be 
found helpful in placing fabric designs 
in their proper periods. 

Twelfth and thirteenth centuries, for- 
mal arrangement. See Fig. 119. 

Fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, ani- 
mal figures. See Fig. 122. 

Sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, 
trunk motives. See Fig. 120. 

Seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, 
scroll motives. See Fig. 121. 

For a more detailed outline we can refer 
to that given by Clifford, in his book on 
Period Furnishings, in conjunction with 
his well-chosen illustrations. 

"I. 200-400 A.D. The development of 
circle and geometric frames, sometimes filled 
with simple floral, bird or animal forms. 

"II. 400-600 A.D. The utilization of 
broken circles spread out to form bands. 

"III. 600-1000 A.D. The use of circles 
linked by smaller circles, with ornaments 
inside and out, developing at length the 
ogival form; often hexagon framework. 

"IV. 1000-1350 A.D. Repeated parallel 
bands or ornamentation, detached details, 
patterns animated and inanimated, en- 
closed in ogival framing and combination 
circles or scale patterns as well as geo- 
metric straight-line framing. 1200-1300 
introduced features of design, as eagles, 
falcons, etc. 

"V. 1350-1500. A characteristic design 
of the fifteenth century was the use of 
reversed curves so firranged that they 
made frames. (The panels of Jeanne 
d'Arc, painted by Boutet de Monvel and 
owned by Senator William A. Clark, give 
very fine illustrations of the textures used 
at this period; they may be seen certain 
days upon written request. Both the 
surcot, which was now gradually disap- 
pearing, and the houppelande, or robe, 
which was appearing, lent themselves 
magnificently to these fabrics.) 

"This form utilized the Hogarth line of 
beauty. Another form was the inter- 
section of a Hogarth panel by two bold 
curving stems coming up through the 
bottom of the panel and capped by a cone 
pineapple or fruit device. 

"Still another showed a serpentine stem 
or winding trunk which ran through the 
Hogarth pattern in the midst of a variety 
of botanical forms. See Fig. 123. 

"VI. 1500. Designs adopted a free treat- 
ment. The plans of previous centuries 
were combined and elaborated. Orna- 
ment was arranged with ogival frames, 
springing out of the frame to which it 
seems to be attached. Interlacing of 
two frames of which one is ogival. Ogival 
frames of leaves and flowers enclosing a 
large concentric pattern. Elaborate ogival 
frames caught together by crowns. The 
use of vases, urns, crowns and animals 
became common. 

"VII. 1600-1700. During this time we 
find an elaborate use of European garden 
flowers instead of purely tropical Persian 
verdure, following, however, the general 
ogival form arrangement. 

" VIII. 1700. Pictorial tapestries and 
prints. Pure Renaissance styles, or devel- 


opments of that style. Louis XIV or XV.

"IX. Empire and Empire influence." 

60. The Sixteenth and Seventeenth 
Centuries. — In the sixteenth and seven- 
teenth centuries, three distinct types of 
design were seen, the Renaissance, the 
Oriental Renaissance and the European 
floral. The Renaissance brought a change 
from the accustomed following of Persian 
Oriental design, and such motifs as the Per- 
sian rose and pink, the Rhodian lily and 
pomegranate gave way to such Egyptian, 
Roman, and Greek motifs as the Anthe- 
mion. Acanthus, Lotus and Iris. The 
second or Oriental Renaissance was really 
Portuguese-Persian, or the spirit of the 
Renaissance influencing the East through 
commercialism. The third or European 
flora was developed about 1650 during 
the reign of Louis XIV, when the ferns and 
flora of the Royal Gardens came into use 
as motifs. 

In studying the periods it must not be 
overlooked that the Dutch brought East 
Indian types into England under Elizabeth, 
the Jacobean, and Queen Anne reigns, 
and that the influence of China was 
strong in France during the reign of 
Louis XV, and in England under the 
Georges. The East India Company in 
1609 reserved all strange fowls and beasts 
to be found there, "for the Council." 

This brought the parrot and cockatoo in 
wicker cages, and similar motifs, much into 
evidence in the embroideries and printed 
fabrics, so full then of animal and floral 
design of Eastern character. The British 
rule in India created a demand as early 
as 1760 for Indian goods, and India cot- 
tons, dimity, and gauze were used in both 
England and France. 

61. Paris Becomes the Centre of 
Fashion. — For centuries Italy was the ^ 
centre from which foreign courts adopted 
both fashions in clothes and customs. 
It was not until the seventeenth century 
that Paris became the centre and home of 
taste. Several things had much to do 
with bringing this about. First, a great 
and appreciative impetus was given in- 
dustry by Colbert, the able minister 
of Louis XIV. Secondly, at this time 
long dresses were abandoned and the 
vogue for large Italian patterns ceased. 
Thirdly, the discovery of a way around 
the Cape of Good Hope had much to 
do with the trade in silks turning from 
Italy to Asia. 

Under Louis XIV artists held high posi- 
tion; it was an ambitious period. World 
forces, conquests and statecraft, as well 
as the taste of Louise de la Valliere, Ma- 
dame de Montespan, Mile, de Fontanges 
and Madame de Maintenon influenced the 
arts of the time. The magnificent gardens 
that were built, besides the motifs sug- 
gested by European floriculture, brought 
in festoons, vases, architectural designs, 
etc. It was under this king and his 
minister, Colbert, that the highest achieve- 
ment in lace making was reached in 
France. Lace is supposed to have been 
introduced into France by Catherine de 
Medici, wife of Henry II, in 1547. 

Page Ninety-eight 


On the other hand, the arts of Louis 
XV had the stimulus qi social life, and 
were full of ostentation and extravagance. 
We find much less symmetry or balance 
in the motifs, which were shells, feath- 
ers, ribbons, knots, garlands, and Chinese 
and Japanese fancies. Pronounced stripes 
I were affected as creations of Madame 
Pompadour, and many charming gowns 
were made of the flowered silks named 
for this favorite of the King. 

62. Period of Louis XVI.— By the end 
of the eighteenth century heavy materials 
\, had fallen from favor and less metallic 
effects were sought in weaving, but 
oriental foliation, which was used be- 
fore and during the Renaissance, again 
came in. 

Under Louis XVI the designers fol- 
lowed innumerable paths under the im- 
pulse of capricious fashion. We have 
Arabesque composition, foliage, flowers, 
figures, landscapes, country scenes, alle- 
gories and Chinese ornament. 

In the fabrics we find stripes and rib- 
bons combined with flowers. Stripes were 
so much used that in 1788 it was said that, 
"Everybody in the king's cabinet looks 
like a zebra." Unlike the Pompadour 
stripe, the Queen Marie Antoinette stripes 
1/ were interwoven wuth flowers and orna- 
ments such as feathers, medallions, lyres, 
columns, etc. Marie Antoinette liked 
flowers, the pink, the tulip, but best of 
all the rose, and the impetus she gave the 
production of lace in the beginning of 
her reign shows the influence of her taste, 
which is everywhere seen in the entwined 
ribbons and garlands. 

63 Directoire and Empire Designs.— 

The Revolution, 1789-99, brought in 
simpler materials; cotton, India prints, 
and law^n were used. Colbert had put a 
stop to their use in former years because 
it threatened his pet silk industry. 

The Directoire, 1795 to 1804, followed 
this Revolution, and this was the tran- 
sition period between the classicism of 
the late king and the stronger style of 
the Empire. The India shawl — introduced 
after the Egyptian campaign — was much 
worn. This led to a French imitation and 
then to the Paisley copy made in Scotland, 
the Persian design of which has been so 

The transition period was largely in 
combination with much that was Egyp- 
tian in character. The bee, laurel branch, 
wreath, helmeted warriors, etc., w'ere now 
used as motifs and stripes were still 
popular. This had marked influence and 
effect upon laces now wholly lacking in 
freedom of design. 

The costume of the Empire was usually 
more or less Oriental in ornamenta- 
tion, texture, and color. Napoleon's cam- 
paigns resulted in bringing into France 
the accumulated treasures of centuries, 
which became a source of inspiration, 
and left a characteristic imprint upon 
the period. 

Fabric design reveals much of the his- 
tory and atmosphere of each century and 
is worthy of intelligent study and con- 
sideration, not only by students, but by 
all who wish to develop their knowledge 
and appreciation of beauty.

History and Dress 

64. Egyptian Costume. — (a) Men. (1) 
Old Kingdom, 4th, 5th, and 6th Dynasties 
(2980-2475 B.C.) . Memphis, capital. 

Lower classes wore a belt tied 
around the waist with hanging 
ends down the 
front (see Fig. 
127), a kilt-like 
loin cloth (see 
Fig. 129), or a 
skirt apparently 
made of rushes 
(see Fig. 128). 

In the 5th 
Dynasty, trian- 
gular erection 
came in, being 
adopted by the 
king in this dy- 
nasty. See Fig. 
124 of Perneb, 
representing an 
Egyptian noble- 
man in full dress. 
Both men and 
women shaved 
their heads and 
wore wigs. Men 
appear to have 
gone nude when 
engaged in stren- 
uous exercise.

(2980-2475"^ B.C.). 

Skirts became longer and narrower, 

and were closed in front, with one 

side lapping over the other. When of 

transparent material, a skirt of 

thicker material in the shape 

of the short kilt of the Old 

Empire was worn

Apron-like decoration 
was worn from the 4th to 
the 20th Dynasty. Men 
were clean shaven, and wore 
wigs and false beards. Ker- 
chiefs were often used. 
Leopards' skins were worn 
by priests. See Fig. 126. 

(b) Women.~^th to 18th 

All, with the exception of 
some servants and dancing 
girls, wore a simple costume 
from bust to ankles, very 
tight without folds, some- 
times held on by one, 
sometimes by two shoulder 
straps, and sometimes by 
a necklace. See Fig. 125. 
Embroidery was frequently used 

In the 18th Dynasty 
the dress was carried 
over the left shoulder, 
plaits became popular, 
and a left sleeve was 
introduced. In the 
20th Dynasty a thick 
under dress was used. 
White seems to have 
been in favor, also red, 
saffron, and blue. 

Both men and wo- 
men wore sandals in 
the street. The collar 
was an important dec- 
oration and was made 
of papyrus decorated 
with beads or embroi- 
dered in wool. 

Bracelets and leg 
decorations were 
largely used. These fig

Pre - Hellenic otherwise called 
Minoan or Mycenaean Age 
(2800-1200 B.C.). See Fig. 132. 
]Men wore waist cloth with 
hanging ends. Women wore 
tight-fitting waists and flounced 
skirts. See Fig. 133. 

(2) Homeric or Heroic Age 
(1200 B.C.). 

Both men and women wore 
a simplified costume not unlike 
the classic. 

Dorian Invasion, 8th century 
B.C. Rise of Sparta, inhabitants 
called Dorians. Rise of Athens, 
5th century B.C., inhabitants 
called lonians. 

(3) Classic Period. Costume 
of Greek men and 
women was the same 
except that of the men 
was more abbreviated. 

(a) Chiton or dress. 

(6) Himation or 
cloak. See Fig. 135. 

(c) The chlamys or 
short coat was worn 
on horseback. The 
chiton or dress was of 
two kinds. The Doric 
chiton, worn by the 
Dorians, who were war- 
like and interested 
primarily in the phys- 
ical, made of heavy 
material and fell in 
few folds, had no 
sleeves, see Fig. 134.

a people fond of all things beau- 
tiful, made of finer material, fell 
in many and finer folds, had 
sleeves. See Fig. 135. 

Girdle was worn at the waist 
line during the Archaic period, 
sixth century B.C. Statues of 
people of this century adorn the 
Acropolis. This was the elabo- 
rate period when cascades of ma- 
terial are found in the statues. 
Girdle worn over the hip or 
below the waist in the Golden 
Age. This was sometimes called 
the Age of Pericles, 459-431 B.C. 
The maidens of the Parthenon 
frieze are of this time. 

Girdle worn under the arms 
during the last period. 

Wool, linen and silk were 
used, and the garments 
were dyed purple, red, 
yellow, and other col- 
ors. Sandals and shoes 
were worn when out of 
doors, and the women 
had many different 
kinds of jewelry and 
hair ornaments.

was worn by the work- 
ing class. This was 
like a cape, and some- 
times had a hood. This 
was worn by all classes, 
both men and women, 
to travel in. 

Women wore a tunic

Ionic chiton (differing 
in that it had a border

Women of the lower classes 
could not wear the stola; 
they wore tunic and palla, but 
this palla was made like the 
Grecian Doric chiton. 

Roman men did not wear 
hats, except the lower classes, 
who wore tight-fitting caps. 
See Fig. 133. 

Roman women had far more 
jewelry than the Greek. They 
had all the precious stones we 
now have. They dyed, curled, 
and arranged their hair elabo- 
rately and wore sandals and 
fancy boots. They took ex- 
cellent care of their bodies.

67. The Gauls.— Csesar 
made a complete conquest of 
Gaul, 55 B.C. In ancient times 
the civilized races were un- 
trousered. (See Egyptians, 
Greeks, and Romans.) Un- 
civilized races were trousered 
(Gauls, Franks, etc.). 

(a) Men. — Wore trousers to 
the ankles, called braie; a 
mantle of wool fastened in 
front, called sai; a tunic to 
mid-leg with long sleeves; 
girdles; shoes to ankles. See 
Fig. 137.

Later the men shortened the trousers 
and tunic and wore leggins and sandals 
with bands. 

(6) Women. — Inner tunic to ankles; 
short outer tunic with short sleeves; 
girdles; shoes. See Fig. 138. 

The women afterwards shortened their 
outer tunic and wore a mantle like a 
Roman paenula. See Fig. 139. Both men 
and women made their hair red with lime 

About a hundred years after the Roman 
conquest, the Gauls had become civilized, 
and had adopted a dress somewhat resem- 
bling the Roman costume, but the Roman 
dress was also influenced by that of the 
Gauls, as can be seen by the introduction 
of short trousers that were worn under 
the tunic.

(a) Men. — Wore a kind of tunic usually 
to the knee; mantle the shape of a cape

(6) Women. — Wore, like the women of 
Gaul, two tunics, also a veil (sometimes 
large enough to take the place of a mantle) . 
See Fig. 141. The women in England wore 
a similar head covering, called a wimple. 
The influence of the Eastern Roman 
Empire continued after the arrival of the 
Franks, who had become well established 

by the sixth century. By the ninth cen- 
tury gloves and handkerchiefs were some- 
times used. The outer tunic of both the 
men and women was now often decorated 
with a band called a fichu. This was 
sometimes set with precious stones and 
showed Byzantine influence. See Fig. 142.

Dress {XI Century) 

In the eleventh century the influence of 
the Crusades began to show in costume; 
apparently the costumes of the Orient 
influenced costume and men adopted a 
very long and inconvenient type of dress, 

(a) Men. — Wore a long under tunic down 
to the feet called a chemise; outside tunic 
long and full called a bliaud (pronounced 
bleo). This was held in bj^ a girdle. The 
bliaud had sleeves similar to those of our 
kimona (the extra fullness in the skirt was 
obtained by gores). See Fig. 143. 

Trousers and stockings were worn 

The long mantle now worn was fastened 
often on the left shoulder; up to this 
time it had been more conveniently fast- 
ened on the right shoulder, giving freedom 
to the right arm. 

Men wore two kinds of hats, one that 
resembled a Phrygian bonnet, and a cap. 
Men and women now dressed much alike.

Dress {XII Century) 
In the twelfth century the bliaud for the 
men became fitted and hoods were worn. 
The women's outer tunic became fitted, 
tricot and lacing were both introduced. 
This tunic had long bell-shaped sleeves. 
The sleeves of the chemise were long and 
fitted at the wrist. A smaller veil called 
an antique veil, held by a circlet or crown, 
sometimes embroidered, now took the 
place of the long veils. The shoes began 
to show points. See Fig. 143 and 144.

Dress (XIII and XIV Centuries) 

In the thirteenth century, 
more interest was shown in 
dress. Both men and women 
wore a semi-fitted garment 
called a surcot, hollowed out 
under the arms. 

(a) Men. — Wore close fit- 
ting trousers (braie) ; mantle; 
surcot ; tunic (chemise) ; cotte 
(tunic); stockings; hats or 

(6) Women. — Wore inner 
tunic or chemise, over this 
a cotte, or fitted chemise worn 
with a girdle, over this the 
surcot. The surcot had no 
sleeves, and those of the , 
cotte, usually of a con- 
trasting color, were an 
important feature of 
this robe; by degrees the 
arms-eye became larger 
and was trimmed with 
fur. See Figs. 123 and 
145. The skirts were 
very long and were held 
up as the woman walk- 
ed, showing the cotte 
again, which was the 
same material as the 
sleeves, making a pleas- 
ing repeat of the con- 
trasting color. In the 
fourteenth century the 
parti-colored or ar- 
morial dress was worn, 
see Figs. 146 and 118, 


and the hennins or high head 
dress came in. Toward the 
last of the century the howp- 
pelande or one-piece dress 
replaced the surcot. See 
Figs. 147, 148 and 108. In 
this garment women are said 
to have discovered the nor- 
mal waistline. This had a 
V-shaped neck, widely off at 
the shoulders. The women 
were at this time wearing 
the wimple or head covering, 
and about the throat the 
gorget in certain localities. 

The surcot of the men grew 
shorter and had large sleeves. 
Their stockings were close- 
fitting and combined with 
T^^i>uc. the trouscrs. The shoes were 
FiG.147.— 14th and 15th century costume more pointed. They added 

showing hennin and houppeland. i , i 

an houpplande or some- 
times long, sometimes 
short, outer garment 
with large sleeves. See 
Figs. 108 and 148.

The fifteenth century was an exaggera- 
tion of the modes of the fourteenth. More 
extravagant fabrics were used, and every- 
thing became more extreme, even to the 
points of the hats and shoes. 

Towards the end of this century came a 
transitional period. The toes of the shoes 
became round, the dresses became more 
semi-fitting, and were split up the front, 
showing the underskirt. They had square 
necks and were worn with a girdle. The 
close-fitting cap was the head-dress now 

used, and had probably been introduced 
into France by Anne de Bretagne, Queeii 
of France. See Fig. 150. The Fifth cen- 
tury to the Sixteenth century comprises 
the costume his- 

tory of the 
die Ages.

Dress {XVI Century) 
Great changes now 
developed. The cos- 
tumes for men and 
women from this time 
on are no longer alike. 

The desire now seem- 
ed to be to alter in 
various ways the nor- 
mal shape of the figure. 
The women first wore 
a boneless corset, 
which they called a 
basquine, and a crin- 
oline which gave 
the appearance of a 
hooped skirt, which 
they called ihevertu- 
gale. See Fig. 152. 
The waistline 
was normal and 
slightly pointed in 
front. A piece of 
material was sewed 
on the vertugale to 
take the place of 
the cotte. The 
under-sleeves were 
made of the same 
material, and some- 
times slashed to 
show the chemise; 
sometimes this 

Page One Hundred Fourteen 


same material was used 
as a panel in the front 
of the waist. The neck 
line was square but 
curved upward at the 
centre. The skirt was 
round length. 

Large mantles, usual- 
ly with hoods, were used 
for out of doors. The 
shoes were no longer 
pointed. Red was the 
popular color for shoes 
and stockings. Jewels 
were used in profusion 
to elaborate the cos- 
tumes; collars set with 
gems were favored. 

The men wore very 
short, often slashed, 
trousers, long stockings, 
a doublet with a 
square neck, slashed, 
round - pointed shoes, 
and a mantle. See 
Figs. 151 and 153. 

The first change 
came in the latter 
part of the century, 
when many women 
wore a waist which 
buttoned to the throat. 
The large over-sleeves 
were discarded for 
smaller ones with a 
padded roll at the 
arm-eye. The ruff now 
became popular. More 
width was given to 
the hfps by a barrel- 
shaped hoop which 
made a definite change

in the silhouette. The 
waist became smaller 
in size. Both round 
length and long skirts 
were worn. Trains were 
worn on horseback, one 
of which was seventy 
feet long. The widely 
open bodice became 
popular, to which im- 
mense ruffs were added. 
The balloon-shaped 
sleeves, too, had grown 
enormous. It was at 
this time that ribbon 
came in. See Figs. 154 
and 155. 

Men's figures dimin- 
ished in size as women's 
figures increased. They 
also wore both corset 

and ruffs. See Fig.

Dress {XVII Century) 

The heaviness of the sixteenth century 
gave way by degrees to the more picturesque 
costume of the seventeenth century. 

(a) Men. — Men's trousers lengthened 
and they shortened the waistline and 
added peplum, and, like the women, used 
lace and ribbon profusely. They wore 
musketeer boots. Their hats w^ere high 
with a flat brim and decorated with flow- 
ing plumes. The hair w^as worn long. 
For an outer garment the cape was used. 

Men's costumes in the last quarter of 
this century changed greatly. The doub- 
let now turned into a waistcoat or vest 
and a new garment or outer coat was 
added. Sleeves had deep cuffs. The stock 
collar and jabot took the place of round 
collars. The chemise showed at the wrist, 
and under the jabot. The trousers were 
close-fitting and less decorated. They wore 
large muffs and w igs and a hat with turned- 
up brim and flat plumes. See Figs. 157, 
and 161. 

(6) Women. — Abandoned the hoop, and 

wore a round length under-petticoat and 
an overskirt whici was often trailing. 
The fullness was at the sides and back. 
Often the skirt opened in front. When 
this was done, a narrow panel of the same 
kind of material as the petticoat was used 
up the front of the bodice. The round 
neck line was used most at this period 
and the large, flat collar generally replaced 
the ruff. See Fig. 157. 

In some instances the waistline was 
raised and a short slashed peplum added. 
The woman often wore a string of pearls 
at the neck. Notice the simple way their 
hair was worn. See Figs. 157 and 158. 

In the latter part of the period, under 
Louis XIV, the skirt was looped up, the 
waist became longer, heels grew higher, 
waists grew tighter and fans were a neces- 
sity. See Fig. 160. 

Two kinds of neck lines were now pop- 
ular: The straight line decolletee, close 
to the neck, which seemed an extension 
of the panel front used with short sleeves; 
and the round neck line, which was off the 
shoulders. A shorter, fluffier sleeve was 
used with the round neck line. Both these 
are forerunners of the eighteenth century. 

The Fontanges headdress came in the 
late part of this century and clothes be- 
came very formal under the sway of Mme. 
de Maintenon. See Fig. 160. Large bro- 
cades that looked like furniture covering 
were much used in the latter part of the 
reign of Louis XIV, and the material was 
draped so that a bustle effect was obtained. 
The women carried small, round muffs.

Dress {XVIII Century) 
Early in the eighteenth century 
the hoop was revived (1711). 
This time it was a framework of 
cane, whalebone, or some similar 
material, and was called a panier. 
It was wide at the sides and flat 
in the back and front, but the 
fullness of the skirt gave the re- 
quired size at the back. During 
the regency, plain, full skirts of 
light weight material were in 
vogue; afterward, heavier* fabrics 
and more decoration appeared. 
The tj'pe was more frivolous 
than that used during the latter 
part of the reign of Louis XIV. 
When the bodice had a round 
neck, the sleeves were usually 
made of ruffles of lace; with the 
square neck, the sleeves were

usually close-fitting 
with decoration at 
the elbow. See Fig. 
166. Much lace, 
ribbon and artificial 
flowers were used. 
Mantles were cape- 
shaped with hoods. 
In the second 
quarter of the cen- 
tury the one-piece 
dress with a Watteau 
plait came in; this 
was then worn con- 
tempo raucously 
with the others, 
and made in differ- 
ent ways. See Fig.

waistline was not 
defined and the

to fall straif^-t from 
the shouldei to the

the skirt was draped 
at the back and sides, 
showing the under- 
skirt. The dresses 
were often worn 
short, as much at- 
tention was given to 
shoes and stockings. 
The costume of 
the men of this pe- 
riod was strongly 
influenced by the 
paniers used by the 
women and the 
skirts of the coats 
were stiffened and 
boned. The shoes

had red heels, and a 
tricornered hat was 
worn. See Fig. 164. 

The costumes of the 
reign of Louis XVI 
from 1774 to 1792 were 
exaggerations of the 
costumes of the reign 
before. The bodices 
were extremely tight 
and stiffly boned, the 
skirts were elaborately 
trimmed, and immense 
headdresses were 
worn. See Fig. 165.

Fig. 167. The next 
change was that 
brought in by the ap- 
proaching French Rev- 
olution. This was a 
more masculine cos- 
tume and was called 
British or English. See 
Fig. 168. 

The days of the Rev- 
olution (1789 - 1799) 
brought in simple 
fashions. Corsets were 
discarded, the waist 
became short and the 
skirt clinging, and 
cheap materials were 
used. During the Di- 
rectoire, the women

adapted the classic 
style, borrowing from 
both Greek and Ro- 
man fashions. These 
costumes were scanty, 
and frequently were 
split up the sides. 
The dresses were 
often transparent and 
worn without chem- 
ises. See Fig. 169. 
The gentlemen of this 
fantastic period were 
styled "Incroyables," 
"Unimaginables "; 
the ladies, "Merveil- 
leuses" and "Impos- 
sibles." See Fig. 170. 
The men wore an 
exaggerated copy of 
what had been previ- 
ously called the 
English fashion.

caused the waist- 
line to drop

had more fullness,

trimmed and were 
worn quite short.

waistline, the 
sleeves became 
large and gave 
width to the 
shoulders. Much 
interest was now 
being taken in 

The reign of 
1830-1848, was 
called the Ro- 
mantic Period. 
See Fig. 175. The 
waists were close- 
fitting with a 
very low neck, and 
were wide off at 
the shoulders. 
The popular ber- 
tha effect increas- 
ed this still more. 
The waistline was 
pointed in front, 
the skirt full but 
with less trim- 
mings, and floun- 
ces were some- 
times used. Shoes 
were low and had 
no heels. TheRe- 
[)ublic under Louis 
Napoleon, 1848- 
1852, found the 
i-kirts increasing 
in size, and by the 
Second Empire 
under Napoleon 
III, 1852-1870, 
the skirts were 
held out by stiff 
petticoats which

led up to the return of the crinoHnes and 
hoops of 1854. See Figs. 176 and 177. The 
long shoulder line persisted and sleeves 
were bell-shaped and full at the wrist. 
Jackets, shawls, and capes similar to those 
worn in the First Empire were used. By 
1870 the bustle had supplanted the hoops, 
and from that time to the present rapid 
changes have taken place.

New York Public Library. Art Division. In prep- 
aration, Textile list and Costume list. Each not 
only lists books and articles, but parts of books 
and individual plates. 


Drawn by Robert Henry for Felix Jungmann & Cie., Paris. 






The primary purpose of this list is to furnish a partial guide to the resources 
of the Brooklyn Public Library on the subject of costume. Completeness 
has not been attempted. Practically no references to periodicals are 
included, as these are generally available through Poole's Index and the 
Readers' Guide. Post-cards, works of art, jewelry, and other articles 
primarily artistic in nature are not included. A few unindexed periodicals, 
especially useful in the study of costume, are listed. 

It is hoped that the list, in addition to its use to the patrons of the 
library, may serve as a contribution toward a bibliography of the subject.
