Tub Frocks Under Discussion
New York Tub dresses are Just
now a fascinating topic and charm
ins: examples of linen, cotton voile
ond crepe, and a Ions list' of other
delightf'tl hot weather fabrics are
presenting their claims to' considera
tion. Women, who are devoting these
qo'et lenten days to the preparation
of their summer wardrobes are Teally
finding it difficult to make choice
anions: the bewildering variety of ma
terials offered for the necessary tub ;
frock. For once length of purse has!
little to do with'the possibility of
adding a suitable number of these
necdTul dresses to the outfit, for nev
er before In the.history of textiles
has this class of goods been so rea
sonable nor so beautiful. ' Prints and
woven fabric alike are more ar
tistic in .design than ever and the
allover embroideries seem to take on
new beauties each week. Made up
into simple one-piece frocks they
need few accessories to proclaim
them fit for the adornment of beauty.
Grace is Imparted by skillful cut, and
the rest of their charm is due to the
loveliness of material. i
In the first Illustration we have aj
new tub frock which needs no encom-1
Juris to recommend It. A fine qual
ity of linen forms the body of the
dress and the fronts of skirt and
waist are made of handsome allover
embroidery. Front and sleeves are
bordered with wide bands of em
broidery. A flower-wreatbed hat and
embroidered parasol complete a very
attractive costume. ,
These simple models cfn be de
veloped appropriately In silks or oth
er non-washable fabrics as well as In
linens and cottons. Made of taffeta
with silk embroidered front and bead
ed bands, none of the effect of this
costutue would be lost. Beaded
trimmings Pre general, especially on
e-ning and dressy frocks, but they
rre undeniably expensive. The first
cost is an item and besides their per
JfhnMe nature necessitates careful
wearing or an early retirement from
suvice. The net flounclngs embroid
ered in beads, however, are dreams
which will tempt the buyer in spite
of their fmg'Iity and no woman of
ordinary clay ran resist those beaded
tur.lit whlrh conic ready to wear in
Hark, white and every delicate shade,
needing only the simple satin or taf
feta silp to complete a handsome
dress. These silk undersllps can be
of harmonious or contrasting color
and a wide range of choice la offered
for them, dressy ones of Batln or
PAakes Faces Young

In figure two we have a lovely taf
feta coat suit built to wear at the
southern resorts. Its color is the
pink known as "faded pink," a dull.
unnhtruRive rose color that nas an ,
the charm of that shade without any
ot" Its tendency to glare. Collar and!
ci'ffs are of black satin braided with j
a heavy white cord and the inset sec
tion on the skirt is also of black sat
in. The hat worn with this suit is a
fine black Milan sailor simply trim
med about the crown with folds of
chiffon in shaded stripes of black,
white and faded pink, and a biacK
feather cockade at the left side. t
An attractive feature of this skirt;
Is the opening at the bottom of the j
Inset section which Is left unbuttoned j
for six or seven Inches, displaying a;
dainty silken petticoat at every step, j
This style first appeared in Paris lastj
year and Its decorative possibilities;
appealed at once to the lovers oij
ntettv clothes. Perhaps one reason1
for Its ready adoption was that wo
men are beginning to tire of the
straight, severe skirt of recent sea
son, and are ready to welcome any
thing In the way of novelty. Further
departures from the simple line arei
l.slnc shown now In the sliehtlT bouf-:
fsnt skirts which seem to predict aj
return to Darners and Dolly varaeni
drsneries. As vet. the fullness has
not appeared on the hips but takes

skirt bulges out on the sides above
a narrow section which hangs with
out ripples from the knees to the
flnnr. Tn voiles or aoft fabrics which

with the mobility of satin and is so
