Here is a blouse that is simple and in
expensive, yet dainty, and has a great
deal of style. It is made of dotted Swiss
box-plaited from the shoulder down the
back and down the outside of the sleeves.
It is trimmed with very sheer Swiss em
broidery inserting. The blouse is pollar
less, with the inserting forming a little
square arouud the neck. Shoulder straps,
cuffs and straps across the front are made
of embroidery, from under which the
material is cut away.
The hat is made of nifties of Valen
ciennes lace and faced with inserting to
match it. It is trimmed on the outside
with thin pale pink satin rosettes going
straight across th3 hat
These frocks noticed on the Boardwalk
at Atlantic City, were conspicious for
their extreme daintiness and for their
very good style. The one trimmed with
lace squares was of heavy white butch
er’s linen, the squares beiug of a heavy
ooarse-mesh heavy antique lace. The
vine embroidered around them and down
the front seams of the skirt was done in
a rather coarse working cotton; The
•boulders were tuoked to give fullness,
also the tops of the sleeves. The hat
worn with this was a fine black straw,
the crown outlined with gardenias and
two white plumes hauging over the brim
on the left side. The other frock was al
so of white linen, but of a finer mesh. In
this there was a yoke of white dotted
Swiss, over which was sewed bands of
the linen, shaped, and piped on the edges
with pale blue lineu. The oufts wore
made in the same way. The hat was of
natural-colored straw, bound with paU
blue velvet and a quilling of the same
crown. i
This is a simpl e,rdainty’little frock
for a young girl to wear to an inform
al dance, it should be made of some
clinging fabric in white or a very pale
It is tucked in groups of pinch tucks
and trimmed with squares of a heavy
white lace—an imitation Irish point is
pretty. Thesej^are joined together
with straps of a creamy Valenciennes
inserting. It takes a dozen sauares
of lace and a piece of the inserting.
It is pretty to briar-stitch firmly in
between each row of the inserting.
This should be done in No. 50 O. N.
T. crochet cotton.
This frock would be lovely for a
fair-skinned fcrunette, made of the
ordinary batiste, which can be bought
at most of the Perth Amboy stores
in the most beautiful pale blush pink.
This first blouse is very dainty and
rather out of the ordinary, being
trimmed with Dale blue. It was no
ticed.in an exclusive French shop, and
was ’rather an exorbitant price, but
any one a little clever with her needle
can easily make one very inexpensive
The blouse is of white handkerchief
linen, with a yoke made of very small
hand-run tucks. The tops of the
sleeves are done in the same way.
This is not difficult if a thread is
drawn to mark each tuck.
The straps are made of pale blue
handkerchief linen, which are put on
oy hand, the edges being whipped
over and over with helios floss. The
white linen is then cut from beneath
it, and a flower embroidered in the
same floss at the top of each strap.
When laundering,first soak the blouse
in salt water to retain tlie bine in the
The second blouse illnstrated here
is very simple, just bring trimmed
with a Valenciennes inserting; but
this latter is put on in A rather novel
and pretty way. The# yoke is first
finely tucked and the lace then sewed
on like i4 the illustration.

This is a rather plain but exceedingly
pretty, also quite dressy, irock for the
first cool days in the early fall. And for
the mountain, seashore or country very
suitable for either morning or afternoon
wear. It is made of white foulard polka
dotted in bright red. No trimming need
be bought for it, as bands of the same
fabric make it sufficiently elaborate. The
bauds coming over the shoulders are
fagoted together with red twisted silk.
The waist is a simple blpu^e and the
skirt seven-gored w ith a strapvetilcbed
down each seam. The hat to beVcurs
with this should be of chip, the color of
the dot in the frock, with a garland of
poppies around the crown. A parasol of
red should be carried with the costume,
which when completed is very attractive,
yet quite inexpensive, including everything
There are many who would not at
tempt to make a frock or even a
blouse, but who always make their
own lingerie. For the real dainty and
fine garments such exorbitant prices
are usually asked that, unless one has
plenty of money, they must content
themselves with inexpenisve things or
make them one’s self. A corset cover
can easily be cut from one’s shirtwaist
pattern. The one in the illustration
is cut juts to the waist, wide beading
put on for a waitsband, and a circular
tail put on it, The inserting is braid
ed on in diamond shapes. The
coat ruffle is extremely pretty and
launders very well. The shapes are
all cut out first and bound all around
with inserting. These are whipped
together the edge by so doing makes
points. A rather wide lace is then
sewed on with a row of the inserting.
The sleeves in the nightgown are very
pretty, having the seam entirely open
and not drawn in to any band at the
elbow. The edges have a ruffle <
laoe all around. The little sha,
vote has three Swiss embroide
motifs appliqued on it and a des
in briar-stitching. It is edged ai
te top with a little ruffle of la
