other, being a favorite of Dame Fash-
but j ion's for dinner wear this season.
The upper part of this tunic cover
ing the green tatin skirt is of chiffon
which falls just below the hips. From
this point to the ankle is chantilly,
though a hem of the chiffon borders
the lower edge.
The border of chantilly slopes down

the back the chiffon reaches to the
knees and the lace trails down on the
floor. Tli? two squares of lace, each
hemmed all around with chiffon, forra-

TOrril OF GEMIS,
Worth, the builder of this lovely
j gown, never places a dark fabric di- !
, rcetly a.cpinst the neck, but softens j
ithe demarcation wi:h folds of chitTon !
or tulle so that flesh and gown seem to
melt invisibly into each other. This
is one of the touches of genius which
have made Worth famous. No one
can make evening gowns of greater
beauty, refinement and artistic grace.
I. ace and net enter largely into all
evening gowns made by Worth and
bid fair to rival chiffon, though the
latter is still in high favor for tunic
I and draperies.
I One of the most beautiful of the
I new fabrics, for dinner wear, is bro
I ended crepe de chine which comes

' all-over designs.

These scalloped folds are the latest
fashion and are supposed to imitate
the old-style flounces.
The bodice of this frock had a
