VOGUE THIS SEASON
Flower gowns give emphasis to the
tendency that has leen apparent
since the commencement of the win
ter s-.'fison to favor fancy dress for
parties, dances and balls. In instan
ces where, in view of competitive
prizes, topical incidents and interests,
as' typified in dress, have received the
co.-tumer's closest attention, the ef
fect of the full-dress carnival ha
been lessened rather than increased.
Klaboration of design, the introduc
tion of electrical etfects and a usual
far-fetching origin, only serve to
weary the eye an.l to create a doubt
as to the intention of the wearer.
Once on a time it was enough to
fringe a gown with flowers to place it
in tfie category of fancy dress. Xow
the jH-tals. leaves and form are trac
ed and colored true to nature, and
the flower gown is a thing of much
ing'.-iiiiity. Slender plaited green
leaves dracd the skirt of accordion
pleated heliotrope satin, and rose
from the waist to meet a yoke of
plealel heliotrope. A chatelaine of
hcliotroK thistles, thistles on the
bo:lice and in the hair, admirably de
picted a common Scotch thistle in an
uncommonly pretty manner. Violets
have always had many followers.
Infinite work is involved in fashion
ing a dress of white satin powdered
with hand-painted violets. A sash
of violet chiffon, shaded from palest
heliotrope to dceJH-st blue, just gives
the necessary touch of softness need
ed, an I bunches of violets will be
worn nt the waist. Another dress is
of spotted muslin, on which is em
broidered a profusion of yellow
edged marguerites. The skirt is plain,
except for the embroidery, but' the
bodice and sleeves are fringed -with
yellow marguerite heads and a girdle
of twisted green stalks is finished
with pompoms of the flower heads.
A wonderful color scheme is achiev
ed to typify sweet pease. Pink., pur
pic and indefinite blues, and just a
suspicion of the aesthetic green of
the Kweet pea are blended in the skirt.
across which "straggles a spray of
real-looking sweat eas. A hnge-jH-taled
flower forms the headdress,
and the idea is further to be enhanc
ed by the addition of a, crook, round
which the strangling flower climbs.
Poppies are easily imitated in colors
as miny ns the rainbow, in rieh or
ange, apricots, scarlet, pink or white,
and nothing prettit-r has been seen
th's season than a judicious Wending
of the typicnl summer flowers, poj
pies and cornflowers. The Swiss
adopt a very pretty plan in their peri
odical flower carnivals. In the spring,
particularly at the populir Fete des
Norcusses. they clothe the 'young
sters to represent tiie flowers in
drespes of white and green, and usu
ally cailonds" of these nodding and
livelv parcis;i form part of the prt
cession; taking a very considerable
srtarc in the battle of flowers.
