be questioned if there really ever was a

enable a woman to look smartly attired..
A satin and voile gown, preferably black,
does duty for many different occasions, i
however, and can be depended upon to
look well unless hopelessly badly made.

the ground do not have any perceptible

; Most difficult is it to walk comfortably
in sik'li a skirt, particularly it' it is cut
after the latest dictate* of fashion, with a
band just above the ankles, that draws nil
fulness into absurdly small width. Most

though at first they may not seem at all in

the upper part of the skirt, with all lines

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

I sleeve so that the ugly fulness just under
I the arm shall be avoided. In order to
j give the desired effect there must al
ways be a fitted lining, with sleeves set
into a regular shoulder seam. Exceedingly

Voile de Soie Creations.
Voile de sole combined with liberty
satin is extremely fashionable this sea
son, and the two materials are most ef
fective together. The same colors or con
trasting ones are used, and while both
styles are popular for the gown to be worn
on the street, the same color throughout

I intimated that the coat or tunic of black
(voile de soie or chiffon is not just as much
iin style as ever. 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. Just here it may be noted that
all the new sleeves are made short and
small and have undersleeves or ruffles of
lingerio and lace. Indeed it is absolutely
essential to the success of a gown thin
season to have the sleeves most carefully
designed, and, again, there should never
be chosen a style that is unbecoming, for 1
sleeves are a most potent factor in thu
modern dress.
A wider band or fold further np on the
skirt does not extend entirely around the
skirt, but is much more becomingly ar-

ranged, so that it stops at the side of the
front breadth or double panel and is lin
ished with round gilt buttons and loops.
The full waist has fiat bands thut give, a
V shape effect, and these saiue bauds or
folds are carried down over the shoulders
and form the upper part of the sleeves.
At the back the same effect is repeated
the two bands being used, and both at the
back and front are rows of the same
round gilt buttons and loops. The folded
s belt is fiuished with a large rosette and
' fancy gold bm-kle. Again is to be noted
' the undenleeve of finest luce net that
! comes below the elbow, while the sleeve
I of the waist is very snort. These gold
, buckles and undprsleeves mny, in fact, be
counted as one of the latest touches.
Foulard Extremely Fashionable.
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. Combining the plain nnd the
figured is a favorite fashion this summer,

and adding black chiffon or voile de sole
is another of the season's fads.
