When the sky is overcast, ami
dreary drizzles cover our spirits and
dampens our ardor with dabs of drab,
we are confronted with the vexatious
problem of being comfortable, and at
the same time becomingly groomed.
There are those of us who, remaining
consistently feminine,, pay little heed
to practical reasonings and go forth
to meet the elements clad in light
weight, light colored frocks, that sug
gest spring and the flowers rather
than November showers.
In the spring and summer months a
voman groomed in velvet and furs,
f,'ves us an unpleasant impression,
een though it may be a fairly cool
day, and while we may possibly exag
gerate, a white clad figure in sheerest
crgandie, standing in a torrent of 1
or crossing a rain soaked and muddy
street appears almost as freakish.
If one would be smart, one must
heed the promptings of Paris coutur
;1 iers, who, having taken thought for
fhe comfort of their old clients, have
provided all sorts of new and cosily
comfortable garments for cold or
rainy weather. They are offering
- suits and gowns of serge and duvetyn
materials that are as much a part of
fall and winter modes as the organ
dies and wash voiles are the embodi
ment of summer.
Typical of the beautiful simplicity
of line that emphasizes the offerings
o! our great designers, is the Callot
model on the right. Paris is very par
tial to loose backs aud narrow hems,
md Callot puts both of these becom
ing features in this adorable suit built
for youth. It is made of gray -duvetyn
and trimmed with navy blue wool em
broidery. A close fitting belt encircles
the front of the normal waist-line, and
passes under the back, through , an
opening underneath the arms. Blue
velvet buttons finish the closing. A
hand bag of scarlet velvet is carried
by the "Lady-of-the:Suit," and this de
lightful touch of color proves it "be
longs" by showing a .lining of -gray
duvetyn when the lady opens her bag.
This suit will weather the hardest
shower, and look perfectly fresh and
charming afterwards.
Another model which should gain
much favor this winter, is the modish
little suit of brown and black check,
and brown velvet, on the left The
skirt of check has the new narrow lino
at the bottom and the skirt ends fin:
ishlng in front to simulate a tunic.

This article is number 18 of a
series of papers on practical
dressmaking and millinery sub
jects, with special hints on prof
itable buying for wear in Hawaii.
This new department is being
conducted by Janet Walker, who,
with several years of experience
in dressmaking and with a wide
knowledge of materials, ipatterns
and values, brings to the work
an unusually thorough equip
ment. All materials described in
these papers may be purchased
at the Honolulu shops and the
aim is to furnish hints in an at
tractive, readable form for the
women and girls, of the city whe-
ther they make their own clothes
in whole or in part, or buy at 4
the tailors, the milliners, the
dressrriakers or the shops.

Herman Patrick Tappe has given
os some wonderful inspirations in hi
latest models (center). These hats
suggest, even voice, the varied emo
tions that hold us tense these remark
able days. This tan velours soldier
hat with the military cord he has nam
ed "Over There." Truly its very brim
makes one realize that "the Yanks aro
coming." Its serviceable type is un
questioned. The one-piece dress of navy serge is
as popular as ever this season, and al
ways will be. It is dignified, and rich
appearing, and lends itself to most
any style of trimming, however novel.
This season, many models" are 'being
shown that suggest military duty.
Hems are faced back with red cloth
or flannel. Buttonholes arc bound with
red, and smooth, shiny brass buttons
ylip through them. Some of these
buttonholes sound a further note of
extreme to the moment by an addi
tional outline of gilt braid. The cuffs
of red cloth turn over the sleeve from
underneath and button with real but
tonholes around the entire cuff. The
collar carries out the same idea. Hats
of Astrakan fur cloth are very popular
for wear with these serge costumes.
