THE PETITE ROBE
fcg of Ite Prwtlgt
Trifle Lew Diversify In ttyle--Aei
fcerar Meetly to One -Straight
The petite robe, that loveliest of ell
Parisian achievements, nas-lost potbiag
of- its prestige dazing' tale spring sea
son. It is, perhaps, a trUle less di
versmedln style than it ence was, but,
though it adheres, .mostly to one
straight and uncompromlsiag line, it
is none :the less developed in a thou
sand different ways, each more perfect
than before. In the subtleties of these
developments there lies a deal of
charm that seems Impossible to Init
iate. Most of the daytime dresses, if the
collections are Tlewed as a whole, are
made fromery fine serge or from one
of-the anany Tsrietles of erene 4a
xhine. More t)ften "the frqeks 4t dark
oiue serge, lor this Is a material X
neverendlng popularity with tho
Parislenne, are trimmed with 'some
ehade of red applied In more or less
Intricate ways. But with the blue goes
the red almost as a matter of course.
The combination of red and hln t
"need by Polret many times over, and
oh most or his daytime frocks he Is
making a point of the longer skirt
which reaches below the ankles.
Doelllet shows an adaptation of the
Brittany costumes, which has had all
sorts of Interested attention In Paris.
It Is the prettiest combination of bine
serge with red trimmings. Another
rock which appeared at the opening
or tnis maison was made up of two
panels of red foulard, one at front and
one at back, and each of these was
embroidered In Jan all-over pattern
with dark blue threads. The remain
ing portions of the dress, that Is. the
full sides and" sleeves, were of bine
serge, to carry out this ever-prevalent
style of red and blue.
In -the same style one sees -among
tte collection of Martial et Armand a
red and blue dress called Marmouset.
Madeleine et Madeleine have a red and
blue frock, very simple and chaste In
line. It Is built about a high belt of
red filet lace, around which all the
interest centers. The skirt is full and
the bodice slightly Moused. At -this
most popular of designers the after
noon gowns of ilk and crepe are very
apt to have their skirts silt In some
way so that another and a lighter
shade appears between the -apertures.
And Jt li true that these foundation
colors are more often than not
adorned with embroideries -of differ
ent sorts. Molyneuz. shows a street
frock lq. dark bine Merge which has a
wide, crushed belt of brightly glis
tening red leather."
CREPE DE CHINE ADDS CHARM
A larae chapeau of navy hemp Is
faced with crepe de chine of the same
shade which also adds softness to this
straw hat. .

Bracelets are stiU In high favor with
the fashionably attired woman. Many
sre -worn together, but they need not
be of the same metal or enriched with
similar Jewels. When two are used ou

of one ivory bracelet and one of tor

Another type of bracelet Is that

to milady who appreciate the value
and Importance of a supply of such
dainty wearing apparel.
THE VOGUE FOR FILET LACE
Italian Product In Demand May Very
Easily Be Imitated by Use
of Heavy Thread.
The day when every woman who
liked to do needlework had a sheaf of
colored silks In her workstand Is
gone. Colored embroidery of some
sorts Is, of course, still done. How
ever, there are other kinds of needle
work that are more In vogue.
One Is filet lace. It Is Interesting
to contemplate the length of time that
filet lace has been In high fashion,
both for the adornment of woman and
the adornment of her home. The
fashion does not dwindle, rather In
creases. Just now there Is a particular vogue
for the heavy Italian filet, lace. This
may very easily be Imitated, simply
by using very heavy thread. This lace
forms scarfs for the table. Done In
deep cream thread, with a long knot
ted fringe at the ends, a scarf of this
lace Is effective on the living-room
table. Done In white thread or a
light cream It forms a beautiful cov
eting for a luncheon table. Remember,
though, to have the thread of a very
heavy quality, for therein lies the dis
tinction of this particular sort of lace.-
Old English eyelet work Is also In
vogue. The kind that one does with
a stiletto. It should .be done on very
fine linen, sheer and soft. This Is
used for neckwear especially.
Then there are the various fine cro
cheted edges that are used on so many
ef the luncheon and tea napkins. Not
a scallop or a lace, but a little plcot
edge, worked on fine, strong linen.
Embroidered bath towels, with big
initials worked In a diamond-shaped
frame, are still considered quite
.smart, and.thelr working is a pleasure,
.because of their softness. -
LINEN THE SUMMER FABRIC
Coarse Material In Vivid Colors Will
Be Popular for the Qrayfth
Ho. matter how much we may enjoy
the .snows and .sports and formalities
of winter In town or country, there is
one preoccupation of that season
which Is a perennial Joy the selec

The serges and silks and chiffons,
which for many years "have usurped
the place of the cottons and linens and
ginghams, are on Dame Fashion's blue
list for the season of 1021, but while
on it they do poffill it. Warm weath
er will see a blossoming forth of heavy
linen, airy batiste and soft clinging
cottons In 'the liveliest of colors.
Perfect for grayish seaside days are
straight frocks of coarse linen In vivid
colors, banded with leather or em
broidered In heavy silk. Most apropos
for a warm day In town are gowns of
a new fabric called- cotton chiffon,
which may be knife or accordion

snowy batiste with all-over design In

while for a lawn fete the most perfect
confection Is a frock of filmy mull
made with a Jaunty sash and tabller
and showing Innumerable rows of In-'
finitely fine tucking. A mere thread
of valenclennes edging may outline
the frills which adorn this exquisite
type of frock.
Dainty Lavender Bags.
Lavender bags are dainty trifles

embroidery on the has doesn't take
long, and lends a certain personal
distinctive touch to an accessory which
most girls welcome.

signed with long stoawl collars. Some
of these collars are edged with lace,
others are hand scalloped, still others

there Is no "curtain" drawn In at the
back of the hats of today. We be

we wear the coquettish little affair of
embroidered net that must not by any
chance descend below that scheduled
point; and we Identify ourselves with
the ladles' of the harem when we half
conceal and half reveal our. 'more or
less charming features In veils that
hang long and straight before and be

will wear will be very similar to the
one we wore last season. It might be
termed English or American, rather
decorative, but without any bizarre
suggestion; probably a fine mesh with
hand-applied chenille dots of extreme
ly small size; or black or brown with
fine scroll work. Blue veils are mod
ish because they go with the straw
and the silk bats of that color. Brown
is always flattering and many women
find that same endearing quality In
taupe. From Paris have come veils
spangled here and there over their
cobwebby surface, and there are ribbon-embroidered
veils, too, as well as
those with -fringed borders.

Charming and very smart ore the
new coats which, though' very few and

their appearance- One hesitates
whether to dub them coat or cape, and
compromises on wrap, which quite
satisfactorily covers them.
One, of French bice,Twas drawn In

the main part of It did. This was
straight and cut on the lines of a
rather close cape. A .smaller cape,
which came to the waistline, was em
broidered In a single thread of silver,
and a close collar of gray squirrel com
pleted the wrap.
Equally Interesting was another wrap
of tomato red, which was cut on the
lines of the old-fashioned circular cape.
At Intervals In the fabric was woven
a wide double stripe of cream color,
which ran through the material Just
above the knees, just above the waist
and again above the elbows, so that It
came out across the wide part of the
cape that served as sleeves. This wrap
