AT A HOUSE
PARTY
MY DEAR ELEANOR:
Yesterday I - was transported back 1 to x my blushing
girlhood, when my heart beat to the tune of roses and
violets and the other messages of early joys, for I heard the
same ecstatic cries, the same "darlings" and "''dears" from a
quartet of young women who are. stay ing* at, a little house ; party
at Mrs. Stanton's. I supposethe flowers were sent to; the youth
ful entertainer, but all enjoyed their sweetness: ;..'-\Vhile > they were
reveling in the surprise of the gift, I could "not resist the pretty
picture that they formed. •\u25a0 There was the fair daughter of the
house in a charming dress that was simply made/and yet it had an
air of richness. It was of pongee, with the upper^portion of the
skirt buttoned in yoke fashion.' The sleeves had the outer. seam
varied by curves and buttons. Acrossthe front, in three points,'
was an embroidered yoke. Long stitches of.silk were used to give
the effect, which looked extremely heavy under the shallow yoke
of tucked net. ;;;\u25a0 - . ;/ ' . :»»,
Over her shoulder was looking a pretty visitor, who. evidently
could not keep her linen frock under cover any longer. \u25a0\u25a0__: Light blue,
with a chemisette, of allover embroidery, was laid iri folds/ oh the
bodice and sleeves. These last, by the way, x were quite full- and
edged with a cuff of embroidery. A touch of black gave a sharp
contrait at the top. .'..*-'*
There was a charming mauve rajah: that struck; my fancy.
The pleats of the tjpdice were folded toward; the 'center ; and i held
at the top by enameled buttons. A pointed -plaque -of /embroidery
ornamented the front, and this was again repeated in the barids 7 bf
the slashed tunic and the pointed ends of *theiun^ersleeyes^^here
was a clever draped effect on each sleeve that presages the coming
of the fuller shape. A: girdle held in :the; fulness at the waist. '
Down the stairway came a girlish dressed in "one of the
light flowered challis. :A ; draped bodice wasitrimnied witlr tliree
straps- at each side of the collarless chemisette^ the sleeves and -the
skirt were decidedly full amithe whole effectcomfortablyvyouth^ul.
The four, little house frocks might be* well .vwofth' while iwHeri
questions of good styled assail /yoii. : - : - Store ithese r riote's f or \u25a0 future
use, but please do not select .the same ones; that/I do. :'u
Your sister;^ MADGE. "
