(me can also work so much more quickly If the work aud all the many tblugs needed are at hand and If one can lay aside sewing snd know it will be in the same place when wanted. Of course, if one has a spacious, airy room that can be spared. It is to be pre ferred, and a north llaht Is always the best, as It gives the longest daylight and Is the least strain on the eyes. However, any small room ran be made to do serv ice, and. to give nil the space possible, take out all furniture not actually re quired ami fill its place with sewing requisite, "beae are neither mauy nor ON LIBERAL TERMS Designs in Gowns for Early Spring. costly.

Some times traces of oil may show on the ma terial at first, after a machine has been ao cleaued, so guard against this by sew ing un old muslin or useless pieces of left-over material until the thread looks perfectly clean and the -sewing Is nestt) and spotleaa. The chair tor tie machine should be of the right height and abould be light and free from obtrusive angles or kuobs. A low bent-wood chair is excellent for the purpose.

The gown pictured at the left of the drawing was of white broadcloth, severe ly plslu In style, but exceedingly smart and distinctive on a graceful, slender fig ure. The model was a plain princess, the only trlmmlug belug the row of broad cloth buttons and the collar of black and w hite atrlped silk. The sleeves were long and close fitting, and there was a smart little chemisette of fine sheer batiste and also find places in a sewing-room, if space permits, a bigger table with drawers and folding leaves for cutting skirts, et cetera. Is a help, aad above it tacked to the wall place a broad, flat pocket for patterns. . Always fold patterns flat, and keep In separate envelopes, plainly marked. If a pattern is ranch wrinkled, press it smooth wltb a warm Iron before uslug. Some means of heating Irons, and a pressing board is a necessity in a sew-ius-rooui. There should be two irons, one heavy and one light, with patent handles, aud an oil stove Is the best thing to heat them with. One advantage If an oil stove la that it can be placed where most con venient. The press board need not lie large, and one with rounded ends and edges la best.

The middle Agar show gown of messaHne In pale, bine with scarfs of lace, embroidered In pale blue and lavender and finished with fringe to match on the bodice. The gown was In draped princess style, and was In sur plice effect in front. The T of lace In front and back was In pure white Chan tllly 'and the skirt wss untrlmmed. The seated figure shows a good bodice design for a frock of etanilne, silk muslin or chlffosj fJoti. The original frock was of chlffou'Aoth trimmed with bauds of lib erty satin of the eanie shade. The skirt was In trained length also and was stitched Jn plaits about the waist aad trimmed aliout the bottom with bands of tbe liberty put on in a simple Greek key design. The single column cut shows one of the fancy separate white coats re ferred to. this model being of heavy white imported net. with bands of sou tache braiding on net as trimming, and "buttons" of soutache on cither side of the center back seam. This model was trimmed to give an empire line across the back and white fringe was used as Illus trated. measures snd a half doxen thimbles. It will be found that a sew lug -room equipped lu this way will enable the seamstress and her helpers to make much more bead way with tbe work than lu a carelessly appointed room, where there Is no par ticular place fur anything and no system of auy sort. It will also be a great saving of time If the garments to K- made or remade are plauued for and ue-essary Uulugs and material bought before the seamstress arrives, ami If old garments are t) be made over It will be fouud most econom ical and a great saving of a professional's time If everything Is picked apart, sponged, pressed and so ou before the drestjiuuker comes.
