Most difficult to make arc Urn new skirts, al though at first they may not seem at all in tricate or involved. Fitting tightly around the upper part of the skirt, with all lines as straight up and down ai possible, much wider toward the hem, but, as has been said, with the width held in under a band or fold of material, it is almost im possible to give an air of style to the gown. The waist is even more of a problem than the skirt, beiug cut all in one with the sleeves. The kimono sleeve lines are more than suggested, but, as the fashion in its too liberal rendering is not becoming, the ! material of the waist is caught under the I sleeve so that the ugly fulness just under I the arm shall be avoided.

Cerise voile de s>oie and satin of the same color and shade arc effectively combined in one model with skirt finished with two inch bias folds of satin. These folds are only fastened to] the skirt at the upper edge, and where thej voile de soie and satin are joined there is an entre deux of heavy lace, finished at either edge with a fine design of braiding or embroidery, all in the one color but in different shades. In both these gowns the oollarless effect is noticeable, but the yoke Is cut quite high, much higher than the Dutch neck style. With a pretty throat this eollarless effect is becoming, and it is quite possible if the throat is not pretty to veil it with a fold of tulle or the wi lined collar of fine lace can be added without destroying the style of the gown. Charmingly dainty and simple in de sign is a gown of voile de soie trimmed with the finest of braiding, or the model [ may be copied in a bordered material of , Persian or cashmere design. The waist is full, with decided blouse effect and the lower part is of the figured design. The 11 sleeves are delightfully new, with close fitting upper part of the figured design and with an undersleeve that falls below i the elbow, made of ruffles edged with j lace. There is a square yoke of fine lace i entre deux and the voile de soie and a folded taffeta silk belt finished at the back with pleated rosett6 and large fancy buckle.

Foulard is so extremely fashionable at I the moment that there is every danger that it may die a violent death, but in the meantime it would require more than human power of self denial to resist the fascination! of the different qualities and designs that are displayed, while every day or two some entirely new and even more attractive coloring or design makes its appearance. There is no material so comfortable to wear in the blazing heat of midsummer, and with a siiu lining the foulard gown is warm enough for a moderate summer climate. There nre this sen sou short, practical gowns of foulard; | there are long, more elaborate ones, and while it is not a material considered suita ble for elaborate ball gowns there have been some dainty little dinner gowns turned out of late that have met with approval.
