WITH the return of warm weather
there returns also the same old
threadbare story about th i elim
ination of the shirtwaist. One hears
the final dictum—presumnbly from
Paris—that suits and blouses must
match In color, and that all the shirt
waists worn by really well dressed
women are of some other material th in
a lingerie stuff and of a color repeat
ing the hue of the skirt accompanying
Why, then, one speculates, are all the
trig, attractive feminine folk who in
the restaurants about one remove their
spring Jackets to reveal cool, fresh and
obviously new white lingerie blouses?
All this talk about the elimination of
the white shirtwaist is nonsense. The
white washable blouse has become ton
thoroughly and Indispensably a fea
ture of the summer wardrobe to be sac
rificed to any style mandate. There

the chiffon blouse over a silk lining,
or even a thin silk blouse looks hot and
feels hotter; and with June only a few
weeks off it is high time the foresighted
woman has her warm weather blouses
off the sewing machnie and in the
shirtwaist box ready to wear.
The plainness of the new blouses
strikes one noticeably in a first can
vass of the shops where shirtwaists are
specialized. A few tucks and a frill
are the sole trimming in many caa s;
or there is a simple binding of em
broidery introduced down the front;
but materials, in the case of the best
waißts, are beautifully fine, and some
of these exquisitely fine blous s with
daintily run pin tucks and a pleated
frill along one side of the front are
quite as attractive and in much better
taste than the hon?ycombed lace and
lawn models of a few seasons since. A
marquise blouse for wear with tailored
suits was made In this fashion, the
material being the French batiste.
Half-inch tucks were run across the
front from shoulder to bust, continu
ing all the way down the front as the
center was reached. The blouse fas

din's this Russian-mad season —and the
edge was finished with a shaped frill
of the lawn some four Inches wide
at the top and tapering to a point at
the bottom. Down the center front of
the blouse went a row of fine Ham
burg embroidery. The sleeves of this
waist, in bishop style, were gathered
into cuffs of tucking, and the upp *r
sleeve waa made smaller by rows of
tucks running from the top down to
about the elbow. This is a clever no
tion which secures a trim look at the
shoulder line, yet gives the slightly
fuller sleeve which is liked now.

Another clever feature tl the de
tachable frill which may be slipped
out and sent to a special laundry
to be fluted crisply; something the
ordinary washerwoman cannot do.
This saves the expense of sending
the whole blouse to the special
French laundry, whose prices are pro
hibitive to the average woman. The
detachable frill Is sewed to a narrow
strip of the batiste, and in this button
bo'M are worked at intervals corre
sponding to thos • worked on the blouse
front. The frill is then buttoned on
over the pearl buttons of the blouse
and remains there until removed for
laundering. White frills for wear in
silk blouses may be attached in the
same way.
Many colored effects are shown in the
new summer shirtwaists and some of
thorn are very pretty. A white batiste
waist, tucked across the front, has a
pleated frill bordered with blue and
white dotted lawn, and the dotted lawn
also finishes cuffs and collar. This
blouse would be very dainty with a
blue serge suit. A pink and white
cotton voile blouse in tiny stripes had a
plain pink lawn frill set under the
striped one of voile and pipings of the
plain pink were used on cuffs and col
lars. This model was shown also in
green and white, and lavender and
white and was much admired.
