of today is well recognized and
the woman who does not include
two or three at least in her sea
sons wardrobe is either terribly
economical or a very poor manager It
has been well proven that wenr the
itreot gown in the house is a great mis
take and a great extravagance ns well
for the house wear is far harder for the
street gown which besides is made of
materials quite too heavy for indoor wear
The tea gown is also an aid to economy
when the smart house dress is concerned
for it can be made elaborate enough to
take the place of the simpler style or din
ner gown and for home wear is fnr more

Velvet ad brocade tea gowns arc this

often without sloeies and with wide arm

Trimmings of Fur

an extremely practical one is made of silk

and resemble too closely
a picturesque dinner gown to be dis
tinctive for it is really a mistake not to
Keep the two distinct and apart For this
some reason it is u mistake to have the
sleeves of the tea gown too short elbow
length is the best although iu the case of
a most elaborate model of lace and lin
gerie the big angel sleeveslasltid to the
shoulders is most becoming r but even
with this here can be a close unlined
sleeve of tulle or net to take away any
semblance of its being a dinner sown
fA Classic Model
This being a season of brocades and
embroideries there is an opportunity
and especially just at this time to find
rare bargains in rcmuanOj that make the
most attractive of tea gowns For those
who like brilliant colorincs there ire
marvellous patterns in the brightest of
hues these too do not look so startling
and crude when combined with white
lace or net while in the softer paste
shades the colorings arc exquisite Black
and white is always a smart combina
