All of those frocks aro made of linen and they aro intended for summer wear out of doors. They may be worn In doors all winter long and many school girls are wearing linen middies through the winter months, with special middies made ot dark bluo serge for campus and general out-door wear. The regulation middy model has a pleated skirt and a straight, loose blouse and this blouse may be I worn outside tho skirt, or tucked in-j-slde the skirt-belt. The costume of , pleated linen, all in one piece, is an adaptation of the middy idea and this neat frock can hardly be called a regu lation middy. Ono feature ct the typical middy blouse is its very roomy cut at the shoulders. The armholo scam always drops well over tho arm and the blouso falls In soft lines on tho figure with out any pleats, gathers or tucks at 'he shoulder seam. This is ono of the Important points to remember. If you essay a middy costume in the homo sowing room. Another point Is that the blouse Is not shaped at all to tin figure Usually back and front sec lons aro almost exactly alike; the bark is quite as wide as the front, and ' both are as wide at the shoulders as tho width lower clown, ai tho hip. t A middy blouso for a large busted figure cannot be given fullness by pleats or gathers at the shoulder line , that would completely spoil the middy effect. But tho pattern may he laid obliquely on tho material, sloping away several inches from Iho center-front fold as you cut out the front ot the I blouse. This will give the front an easier effect on the figure But then 1 no woman with full curves at tho bust should ever attempt to wear a middy. The garment Is for youthful, slender ' lines only.
