IF jour little girl is of that bctwixt-and between ac where her waist line i; still uncertain, this Is a very satisfuc tory little frock, with its double belt slight ly shaped. The very simplo braiding pat tern is a loop made in tho braid every sc pfteu, and is easy to make. The dresa opens in front and h.as a wido bot plait down the back. The mother can also trim this littlo straw hat very nicely, for the decoration consists of two rows of plaited lawn and a littlo wreath of held llowcrs. Belting in the waist line of n girl this age, unless it Is done in some such man-Tiur-ns this model or in Norfolk xtj Ie, is unsatisfactory, because as girla of this, age-ni,e uucorseted. garments hang from the shoulder and do not need a uolt ex cept n n trimming This model is just as suitable for a sorgo or any light wcighf woollonina teiial as for pique.
