There was a time when folk regarded
the serious study of dress and fashion
as an evidence of pure vanity. Nowadays
such study has come to be a real
necessity, for in modern life a woman

an attractive outward appearance

the reshaping of last year's frocks
is very much simplified.

the blouse portion, above this the blouse,
which is not cut so full as formerly, is
gathered with several rows of shirring
to the lower edge of a rounding yoke,
which has a U-shaped dip at center
front. This yoke can be made of tucked
chiffon, with tucks placed cither lengthwise
or crossvTise, or it may be of all-over
Valenciennes or a pretty baby Irish
lace, or with the side portions and back
of tucks, and the center from the neck
beginning at the point of the shoulder
seam and extending to the edge of the
U-shaped curve, may be of lace; or the
U-shaped portion be covered with a
large round, oval or crescent iaped
of heavy lace or silk embroidered
chiffon. The entire yoke may be
outlined with crescent or other shaped
medallions that lend themselves gracefully
to the deign.
Many a home -s. alcer who is
fussing over the refurbishing of a dressy
waist would draw a lon sigh of relief
if she could sec the r ' of seemingly
incongruous materials rnd ornamentation
which the expensive waists
displayed in Fifth Avenue shop windows
show. Indtcd, one sees as many
as six kinds of lace "id embroider, on
a single bodice, and not infrequently the
very richest single flower motifs in
handmade lace are poseel in high relief
upon a background of all-over Valenciennes.
The clever woman who makes it a
point to look for and pick up bargains
in laces, medallions and trimmings
whenever she gets a chance to do such
shopping, is never at a loss for decorative
material that will change the entire
effect of a bodice that has grown
passe. It must not be forgotten that the
collar, the cuff part or band of the
sleeve, and some portion of the yoke
must be of identical lace or material, or
they will not bear that look of relationship
which is needful to prevent the
waist from looking like patchwork.
Sleeves in their present state of over-elaboration
help to solve the problem of
their making over. This applies, of
course, chiefly to sleeves of dressy waists
and gowns. The sleeves of cloth
dresses and suits are more severe and
require different treatment.
The sleeve decoration of an afternoon,
theater or party waist usually partakes
of the trimming characteristics of the
yoke, but in the matter of shaping the
styles sare unusually clastic. Some
sleeves consist of a single small puff
scarcely reaching to the elbow, others
arc made of a succession of such puffs
joined together with lace bands. A
narrow sleeve, if sufficiently long, can
have the upper sleeve portion slit lengthwise
three times and gathered up to elbow
length and joined with three bands
of heavy lace. Narrow straps of material
with edges turned in and stitched
make a very effective over-trimming to
use across broad lace bandings, or to
suggest a vestec effect at front of waist.
These straps should be about three-eighths
of an inch wide and may be
made of either straight or bias material ;
each little strap should have a small button
or tiny braid ornament at both ends.
Very pretty braid ornaments can be
made of narrow white or eolqred
braid by simply casting a chain
of five stitches with an ordinary zephyr
crochet-hook, then drawing the end at
which you begin through the sixth loop ;
pull both ends closely and fasten with
thread and needle before cutting off.
A lady whose daughter had grown
top tall and stout for her last year's
tailored gown was enabled to widen and
lengthen it, and transformed it into an
exceptionally handsome suit by use of
soutache braid and velvet. To do this
she opened the lengthwise seams extending
from the shoulders at front and
back of coat; into there sh' introduced
a narrow gore of velveteen of the same
shade as the suit. This gore of velveteen
was not over an inch wide at its
widest part, and narrowed down to half
that width at the waist line. This
strip was reinforced by a lining
of canvas of the same weight as was
used for interlining the coat. After
carefully basting the canvas and velve
teen gore under the carefully turned-in
edges of the cloth, the coat was tried '
on and f.tted before stitching the gore
to place. The inside edges, that is, the
edge of the gore nearest the center, was
left unstitched to permit the introduction
of the ends of narrow tailor-stitched
straps of broadcloth, also of the same
shade as the suit. These straps were a
scant half inch in width and were cut
into inch and a quarter lengths. The
one end of each strap was placed tinder
thei'nside edge of the overlapping cloth
and held in place by the stitching. The
free ends of the straps were tacked over
the opposite edge of overlapping cloth
and fastened with small braid ornaments
made as those described above. The
flat collar and the cuffs were trimmed
with shaped empiecements of the velvet
slip stitched to place.
The skirt, which was of the circular
variety, presented a more difficult problem.
ripped from the band, the
back plaits and placket opened, and cut
apart through the center of the front,
into which a very narrow gore of velvet,
not wider than four inches at the bottom,
was introduced. This gore was
cut the full length wanted. The skirt
was then fitted to a velvet yoke which
had two nine inch tabs at each side. The
edges of the velvet overlapped the cloth m
and were stitched to place. Narrow
straps of the broadcloth crossed the velvet
panel in front and at the side; these
had the braid ornaments at each end.
The suit is much handsomer this year
than last, and no one would ever suspect
that it was remodeled, for the
clever trimming touches give it all the
air of an exclusive and individual de
