Queen of Hearts -- This is rather a pretty and quaint costume, in which the wearer is got up to look as like a Court Card as possible. The over-dress should be of heavy woolen brocade lined with pale blue silk, whilst the under-dress should be of thick white silk appliqué with scarlet hearts. The cloak is completed by a jewelled collar; and a conventional flower mounted on a wire stalk gives the finishing touch to the picture.
