GOWNS FOR DOG DAYS
8TYLI8H MODEL FOR QIRL WHO
18 OWN DRESSMAKER.
Simple, Cool Afternoon Frock That
Launders Well and Coata Little
Money Is Most Needed
During Hot Spell.
It la astonishing how many girls
make tholr own frocks nowadays and
what taste and good sense thoy put
Into tho buying of the materials. The
primary reason for tho Industry, of
course, Is that so many changes aro
needed for a smart appearance, and
where money Is not plentiful there Is
nothing to do but to acqulro the gentle
art of tho necdlo. As to the discre
tion displayed with tho purchasing,
It must bo duo to tho fact that so
many mothers glvo a dress allowanco
und wisely stop with tho sum agreed
upon, no matter how many other
things aro wanted. In this way tho
girl learns how to mako tho dress
monoy cover everything needed and
the oxperienco gained thereby Is cor
tain to benefit hor all her life.
Tho dress most needed nt this dog
day time 1b tho simple, cool afternoon
trock that launders well, that costs
little monoy and yet, somehow, pre
sents an appearance dainty enough
for all tho littlo social occasions that
como up. This simple and girlish
gown can bo turned out for $2, and If
tho material is carefully chosen and
the work well done, it will have a
stamp of real distinction. Hamlo lin
en, In a dull shado of coronation
purplo, Is ono of tho textures much
used now for tho semi-dress frock
tho smart girl wears in tho afternoon.
This material nnd various muslins of
effectivo pattern preferably stripes
aro made up Into one-ploco effects,
with the luovltnble collarloBs nook and
elbow sleeves. Thoro is vayB a
dainty flat collar In whlto, too, flaro
cuffs matching, or tho collarloBs neck
line will end with a littlo bins of tho
gown material, this hit of color show
ing smartly on the whlto.
In our illustration aro given two
frocks which may bo used for both
Indoors and out, and be mado up
iriOst Inexpensively. Tho one at the
left Is a oollarlcss morning frock for
n girl of sixteon, tho bodlco and nt
jajfliod skirt fastening down tho front
Willi tho bluo and whlto check a
stripe In tho samo is employed for
making tho neat collar and cuff bands
and a deep skirt edgo. Five yards and
a half of wido gingham would turn
out this trim and useful gown and tho
girl would And It Invaluable for out
door sports, such as tennis, boating or
golf. Then it is flno for tho small
housekeeping duties tho daughter of
tho family so often takes upon her
Bolf and whoso cares aro lightened by
half If she feels herself prettily
Tho second dress in this cut Is a
ono-pleco model with sldo fastening
for an older girl. Ramie would be ap
propriate for this and coronation
purplo tho first choice for color. The
pretty braid and buttons used would
bo most effectivo In whlto, although
tho same color could bo used and the
result be oven handsomer. Hero the
dress Is of ramio In a soft gray shado,
with braid bands in tho same color;
tho dark piece on tho turn-over collar
Is of coral pink linen, tho round bono
buttons matching tho tono.
Either of theso dress styles, with
some change, is adapted to handsomer
textures, but as thlB 1b the season for
tho simple frock of so-called wash sort
I would advise tub textures with tho
present simplicities of make. Seven
yards of 27-Inch goods would turn out
this frock for a girl of eighteen.
