LUXURIES MADE
1, FOR HEIR
EVERY PROVISION MADE FOR HIS
COMFORT AND HAPPINESS
IN LATTER DAYS.
The little heir of all the 'ages who
makes his appearattce tin this age
finds every provision for his comfort
and happiness, and some luxuries
which would not have been dreamed
olf in the preparation for his father's
babyhood. Each year the little spe
clalty shops which cater to baby's
needs exclusively are gaining In num
ber, and the department shops, also,.
are devoting more space to practical
layettes and helpful little novelties for
the baby's comfort. The dressing of
the baby has been reduced to a science
and his babyship should be deeply
grateful that the heavy, two-yard
skirts have'been done away with, and
also the ugly swathings of muslin
around his tender little waist and the
aggravating ruffles of starched em
broidery which used to tickle his chin
and scratch his wrists.
The little frocks, petticoats and slips
may be of the finest possible material.
with trimmings of thread lace and real
mechiln; or theys may be of 15 cent
nainsook, with pretty imitation val.
frills at neck and wrists; but always
they are exquisitely soft and simple,
with handatitches, touches of dainty
featherstitching and hemstitching, and
thp tiniest of lace buttons with little
buttonholes beautifully worked. More
elgborate frocks for occasions are made
of Paris muslin and pin-dotted Swiss.
wit.' insertings of real lace and sprays
'of fine hand embroidery. The sleeves
are set In with fine scam beadings, and
the deep hem on the bottom of the
skirt is featherstitched or hemstitched.
It is wise to make the little dresses
In roomy size, a three-month pattern
being selected even for the layette.
There Is no telling how big his baby
ship will be and It Is a pity to have to
discard the carefully 'made dresses be
cause they simply will not go on over
chubby arms and shoulders. If made
In a little larger size tiny tucks may
be set in at armholes and wrists, and
there may he a bobbin tape run
through a tiny casing In the neck.
When baby has grown a bit it, will
be a very simple matter to let out the
little tucks and enlarge the dress or
slip.
Such trifles as bootees, bibs, fancy
secques and the like are usually fur
nished in plenty by adoring friends
and relatives. Tlhe shops are full of
these little belongings, both made uip
and in pattern form. with pretty de
signs stamped for hand embroidering,
and the list includes everything needed
for baby's comfort except the most
practical garments.
Kimono sacquos, or nightingales. as
they are sometines called, are very
easy to make and no one need be
afraid that the young moth"r will be
presented with too many of these little
sacques. They soon become stllted and
lose their daintiness after being
washed; yet the baby must nlil:y, be,
provided with a stock of fresh little
Jackets to slip on when presented to
visitors. Thin albatross laid over o1a
ored silk and embroidered with blue
forgtit-me-nots or faint pink rosebuds,
matching the silken lining, makes a
charming sacque, or plain white or
colored albatross or cashmere may he
scalloped and embrbidered and used
without the lining slip.
A dainty little sacque is made by
folding the material crosswise ' and
iracing ,a circle. A smaller circle Is
cut out for the neck, a straight cut
down the center forms the front open
ing. and diagonal cuts half way up in
the middle of each quarter segment
form the sleeves. All tilhe edges are
finished with shallow scallops marked
with a spool, the neck opening being
bound 'with satin ribbon, the ends of
which make a bow to fasten the
sacque. Narrow ribbons tic the un
der-arm seams and the under-sleeve
seams together.
A baby pillow is always a welcome
gift, and this pillow should he rather
small-about 9 by 12 inches-and filled
with down. The pillow itself should
be made of white muslin and the
dainty cover should be provided with
Small buttons ahd buttonholes, so that
it may be removed for frequent laun
derings. The embroidery, of course.
should be exquisitely fine and should
be preferably at the edges and on the
corners of the slip. so that the little
face pressed against the pillow may
not be scratched. Three-inch squares
of sheer lawn, connected by lines of
German val. lace insertion, not In hori
zontally and vertically, make a pretty
pillow cover, and In the center of each
square there may be embroidered a
small spray of forget-me-nots or v!o
lets-all in pure white, of course.
A coverlet to match the pillow will
make, a charming gift and one the:
will be much appreciated by Ihe little
mother. The coverlet should he made
of the same sheer white lawn. itt t'le
embroidery may I, more elaborate
than that on the pillow, and the rz ffl.
around the edge will be deeper. The
baby's monogram In letters three
inches long may be worked in the col
eor of the cover: or there may be
three small initials set in a medallion
of flowers. Through slits buttonholed
at the bottom of the cover should be
run satin ribbon, a big bow being tied
In one corner.
f'he. baby's bassinette is usually
made by. the mother herself, who loves
to drape the dainty lace-trimmed frills
over the couch that is going to hol.1
her priceless treasure. A very pretty
bassinette is' illustrafed, and such a
bed' can readily be made b.,' loving
mother fingers over the light wicker
framework which forms the founda
tion. The basket top of the frame
work' is 'lined with soft silk quilted
over layers of cotton and the outside
is trimmed with white net on which
are sewed insertions of inexpensive
lace. The hood is made of net and
silk shirred over light reeds and the
whole bassinette is trimmed with big
ribbon bows-blue for a boy, accard!ng
to. the old tradition, and pink for a
girl,.
