Any fashion, at least so far as the
moro elaborato costumes aro con
cerned. The shops display a largo
rarloty of tho most beautiful mater
ials which lend themselves admir
ably to achieving this effect and, at
tho samo time wonderfully enhance
the general effect by the richness of
their texture and the artistic charm
of their coloring.
Whllo the one-pleco or princess
gown Is by no means a thing of the
past, a very effective mode which Is
among tho novelties certain of suc
cess is tho separate waist, of moro or
loss elaboration, with skirt to matcn.
Bo far as material goes. The waist
to draped or worn as a foundation
to an overblouse of chiffon, net, silk
muslin or similar fabrics, this being
usually of a contrasting color, some
of tho loveliest of those garments
having tho outer blouse not only of
a contrasting color, but showing a
printed pattern as well, or an all
over design of embroidery or ss
quins. Another variation makes the
under waist of the figured matonal.
whllo tho veiling Is plain. Black
chiffon or net is much used for these
veiled effects, more frequently ovoi
color than over white, although tho
magpio combination Is capable of
stunning results when worked out
by a master's hand.
In spangled fabrics tho manufac
turers have surpassed themsolves In
striving to glvo what will be most
beautiful for tho veiling fad. vWr..te

Tho constant changes in fashion
affect not only tho styles for grown
up women, but also those for young
girls of school age. Fortunately,
however, tho changes in the fashion
for school girls aro not as groat and
material as In former spring seasons
In eoparato waists, for instance, the
regulation model fastening down the
front, with a full plaited frill and
long, comparatively tight sleeves, the
whole relieved with plain bands of
lace or embroidered lawn, will still
bo worn. Tho newest models, how
ever, show a wldo shouldor line,
somewhat suggesting tho GIDson
model, so run to the ground a few
years back. These newest waists
show the shoulder plait tapering to
tho waist lino, which, now roturupd
to Us normal position, is of notice
ably smaller dimensions-than during
the reign of the Empire gown. Small
waists are, however, not at all in
fashion and it Is to bo hoped their
voguo will never again return.
Another marked change Is that pro
duced by the Introduction of tho dou
ble puff or "biiffon" sleeve. As yet
this sleeve is small in width and
short In length above a deep cuff,
but thero Is no forecasting to what
dimensions the design may attain In
tho course of the next few months.
