Flower Design on Front of Blouse
Has Caught the Fancy
of -Those Who Seek
Weary of embroidered blouses in
French work,-In eyelet and In shadow
work, tho girl who can havo what she
wants looks llBtlcssly around for an
Inspiration .which will toll her what
sho does 'want, says a writer In the
Now York llorald. Tho shops are
full of these 6ft told tnlqs of cmbrold
cry, and no new ldoa comes to hor.
It sooms to bo lurking on tho horizon,
or Just over it, whefo sho cannot seo
It. It must bo something novel, some
thing moat effective and rich.
And them sho sees Itl A friend has
seen something which pavd her the
Idea and has' adopted It to her own
use. And, Joy of Joys! It Is a kind
of work which ma bo dono on tho
beach, on tho yerapda, while, waiting
for tho mail, by electric ljeht, and, In
deed, In any moment that Is freo from
othor Joys nnd duties.
It Is striklncli offectlvo and sot
so simple JIn construction as to bo
almost childish. And this Is what It
Is: Any offectlvo llowor design is
stamped on tho front of a blouse a
slieor lawn or 'handkerchief linen ono
and over this Is basted a pleco of
heavy Hrussols not Tho edges are
cut away at tho outline of tho whole
design. If thoVo Is no outline at tho
odgo of tho - design carry lines of
stoms or leaves around to meet, so
that when embroidered tho edgo of
tho not shall bo covered and securely
anchored thoro by tho stitches. Next
stuff or pad tho flower and lenf forms
thickly with embroidery cotton or
darning cotton" nnd work solidly ovor
them with a rather coarso mercorized
thread. Tho 'work stands up beauti
fully and glves a vory rich effect
Whon the embroidery Is finished tho
lawn Is cut away at tho back, leaving
tho embroidered doslgn as If worked
dlroptly on tho net
Such flower'fprms as honoysucklc,
chrysanthemum's, daisies, slim tiger
lilies ln factually flower with a Ions
narow pciai are nest. Tlio embroid
ery stitch Is carried across tho petal
tho narrowest way. It Is best to avoid
too long stitches, as they aro liable
to catch and pull. For this reason,
when worklnglcaves It is n good
plan to stuff the two sides from tho
center vein separately, and to em
broldor theso two parts with a distinct
lino of division 'down tho conter. This
makes more variety, in the work and
tho short stltch'ojs .wear best. Tho
stuffing stitches lies in the opposlto
direction to iho embroidery ones nl
ways. Tho same idea may be carried out
on tho collar and cuffs, There may be
also a little ombroldery on tho top of
oach sleovo. A comploto yoko of this
not embroidery Is very offectlvo, and
tho work goes very quickly Even an
Impatient girl who loves to bo "on the
?o," playing tennis," boating or swim
mlng, may on ralny.'days accomplish
this and bo elated at tho possession
of a blouse quite different from those
worn by her friends
A simple mothodf using tho net
Is to stamp a design suitable for nut
