"JUST HOME" FROCKS
-U (f ii WtJfw
bud ' 8i yk i-'nviv
BY BETTY BROWN
These two sketches were, made to
please the captious taste of an Octo
ber bride, but there is no reason why
you and I and others who sometimes
wear housefrocks should not slant an
eye upon them, and mayhap -copy
, the pretty things.
The model at the left is simplicity
itself and though the original is made
in Georgette crepe in pale blue with
border of Oriental embroidery, the
frock would be pretty enough in
voile, challie, poplin or some delicate
ly colored wash fabric.
It is made all in a piece, with the
full skirt gathered into a saucy frill
marking a high waistline.
The lounging robe at the right is
in buff color crepe de chine .trimmed
with old blue embroidery. The coat
is cut in paints, each point tabbed
with a blue tassle. The ribbon at the
bust line is also blue.
Any of the' pretty wash materials,
especially voile, would make up pret
tily in this style.
SWEET POTATO FRITTERS
Use left-over sweet potatoes
cooked by any process. Mash or rub
through a vegetable press.
To two cups of potato add one cup
of milk, one tablespoon sugar, one
tablespoon butter, a little salt and
the yolks of two beaten eggs.
Shape into thin cakes, dip into the
beaten whites of the eggs, then into
cracker crumbs, dip a second time in
the white of an egg and cracker
crumbs and set in ice box to chill.
Fry in deep fat and serve with lemon
A. H. Franke of Manitowoc, Wis.,
heard about people who could not
get seats and patented a cane that
unfolds into a stool.
