CORRECT STYLES IN SHIRT WAISTS all washable blouses to have them loose enough—and loose enough to al low for slight shrinking also. French women like their blouses snug enough to outline all the curves of the figure, and most of the French blouses—made for the small-boned French women, are painfully skimpy acroßS~lhe broad er shoulders of American women. In fact, some of the French makers, real izing this, supply special blouses for their American patrons, following Pa risian style Inspirations, but making all proportions more generous. The very Blender woman always looks best In a shirtwaist for the reason that It falls loosely and gracefully from the shoulders as an Informal garment of this sort should. The plump woman and especially the woman with a large bust should see that her shirtwaists are sufficiently full to hang with this easy grace, and such women will wise ly make their own shirtwaists at home, for the models In the shops, graded wholly by neck sizes, are very seldom full enough across the bust or shoulder blades for the stout woman. lingerie blouses, like the tailored styles, show more fineness of material and less elaboration of trimming than formerly. Very dainty models of sheer batiste tucked all the way across front and back and with three-quarter sleeves finished with tucked cufTs may be picked up as low as $1.98 and the canny woman buys these simple mod els, adds a few yards of really gooo If" ECV^A^Jr *'■»*\v * t\ Ht , ■*•>'."'.' ■■■'*!

"I fit the face" Stylish Millinery Mme. Dosch 386 South Hill » LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MAGAZINE lace and, presto! has a blouse that she could not buy over the counter for twice the dollar-ninety-elght price. Rather heavy laces are liked, torchon, cluny and—for those who may Indulge In It—bebe Irish. Sometimes these heavy laces are set between entre deux of Val, but always the design Is kept quite simple, the honeycombing and peek-a-boo effects being no longer con sidered In good taste. One's lingerie blouse, however, may be as thin as a cobweb, and quite as peek-a-boo In ef fect as though perforated with occa sional frank holes. Theea very sheer waists are worn over exquisite French corset covers—not lace ones, but hand made French garments embroidered with scallops and flower sprays and with ribbons run through hand-worked eyelets. Kvcrybody breathes a sigh of relief that Dutch necks are still "In." Noth ing so cool and comfortable for hot summer days was ever devised, and one pities the poor masculine folk who may not doff their horrible linen col lars and go about with throats bared to cooling breezes. The woman who cannot stand the rather severe test of a round Dutch neck may have her high, boned stock if she will! or she may wear on eof the coquettish little French frills which encircle the throat, lying flat like a collar and finished with a pert, becoming bow or velvet under the chin.
