GOWNS FOR DOG DAYS
8TYLI8H MODEL FOR QIRL WHO 18 OWN DRESSMAKER. Simple, Cool Afternoon Frock That Launders Well and Coata Little Money Is Most Needed During Hot Spell. It la astonishing how many girls make tholr own frocks nowadays and what taste and good sense thoy put Into tho buying of the materials. The primary reason for tho Industry, of course, Is that so many changes aro needed for a smart appearance, and where money Is not plentiful there Is nothing to do but to acqulro the gentle art of tho necdlo. As to the discre tion displayed with tho purchasing, It must bo duo to tho fact that so many mothers glvo a dress allowanco und wisely stop with tho sum agreed upon, no matter how many other things aro wanted. In this way tho girl learns how to mako tho dress monoy cover everything needed and the oxperienco gained thereby Is cor tain to benefit hor all her life. Tho dress most needed nt this dog day time 1b tho simple, cool afternoon trock that launders well, that costs little monoy and yet, somehow, pre sents an appearance dainty enough for all tho littlo social occasions that como up. This simple and girlish gown can bo turned out for $2, and If tho material is carefully chosen and the work well done, it will have a stamp of real distinction. Hamlo lin en, In a dull shado of coronation purplo, Is ono of tho textures much used now for tho semi-dress frock tho smart girl wears in tho afternoon. This material nnd various muslins of effectivo pattern preferably stripes aro made up Into one-ploco effects, with the luovltnble collarloBs nook and elbow sleeves. Thoro is vayB a dainty flat collar In whlto, too, flaro cuffs matching, or tho collarloBs neck line will end with a littlo bins of tho gown material, this hit of color show ing smartly on the whlto. In our illustration aro given two frocks which may bo used for both Indoors and out, and be mado up iriOst Inexpensively. Tho one at the left Is a oollarlcss morning frock for n girl of sixteon, tho bodlco and nt jajfliod skirt fastening down tho front Willi tho bluo and whlto check a stripe In tho samo is employed for making tho neat collar and cuff bands and a deep skirt edgo. Five yards and a half of wido gingham would turn out this trim and useful gown and tho girl would And It Invaluable for out door sports, such as tennis, boating or golf. Then it is flno for tho small housekeeping duties tho daughter of tho family so often takes upon her Bolf and whoso cares aro lightened by half If she feels herself prettily drcssod. Tho second dress in this cut Is a ono-pleco model with sldo fastening for an older girl. Ramie would be ap propriate for this and coronation purplo tho first choice for color. The pretty braid and buttons used would bo most effectivo In whlto, although tho same color could bo used and the result be oven handsomer. Hero the dress Is of ramio In a soft gray shado, with braid bands in tho same color; tho dark piece on tho turn-over collar Is of coral pink linen, tho round bono buttons matching tho tono. Either of theso dress styles, with some change, is adapted to handsomer textures, but as thlB 1b the season for tho simple frock of so-called wash sort I would advise tub textures with tho present simplicities of make. Seven yards of 27-Inch goods would turn out this frock for a girl of eighteen. PRETTY NEW PIQUE FROCK Long Blouse and 8klrt Are Plaited and Confined by Belt of Samo Material.
