ON ONE PATTERN
Small Gowns Made on Same
Principle as Earliest Doll
Dresses Nainsook Best.
There are many mothers who spend
an enormous amount of money on the
outtit for the baby, but even the
greatest of mother love cannot
stretch a meager allowance. Where
there is-a-plenty of cash on hand it
will save much anxiety as to the lay
ette, and yet there is no reason why
a very pretty outtit cannot be obtain
ed with only a small outlay. For in
stance, patterns used for tho finy
dresses and flannel skirts are so sim
ple anyone can use them, and tho
same pattern answers for tho dress
and wrapper, with a little adjusting.
These small dresses are made on tho
same principle as tho earliest doll
dresses of children, when a piece of
material is doubled over, an open
ing cut for the neck, and the sleeves
are sloped into the armpits and then
sloped out again to the sides and bot
tom. In making the dress or wrap
per, double over twenty-four-inch
muslin or flannel and in tho center
cut an opening four and one-eighth
inches across and sloping into a quar
ter of an inch deep at the deepest
point of the length-wise fold of the
material. This needs no gathers, for
it is the neck, but it has a half-inch
box plait at the front, about two and
a half inches in length.
Shape at Outer lCdge.
Then, at the outer edrre of the ma
terial, cut a straight line about three
and three-quarter inches from fold
for the sleeve. Cut across the ma
terial for live inches, rounding well
for the armhole. and from this cut a
sloping line to the bottom of the
skirt, which is the full width of the
material. Kach little dress is thirty
one inches in length on the length
wise fold, finished, sloping up slight
ly, not more than an inch, at the side
seams. Allow an inch and a half
for the bottom hem. In this way each
garment takes sixty-live inches of
nainsook or flannel doubled to make
thirty-two and one-half inch length.
Nainsook can be obtained at fifteen
cents a yard, and one and one-half
yards of flannel can be had for seventy-five
Now at the back of the little dress,
cut eight inches down the lengthwise
fold for a vent. Face around tho neck
and down both sides of the vent with
half-inch bias fold of tho nainsook,
and run in bobbin around the neck
for the fastening. The front box plait
is held in by the facing. Sew up the
seams r.nd turn in a French fell.
These should be kept as neat and
dainty as possible, as thick seams
hurt the delicate baby flesh. Make
a half-inch hem at the sleeves and
hem the bottom.
Make Wrapper Same Way.
This is all there is to th baby dress
and the wrapper is irndo in the same
way and of the same dimensions, save
that it is cut from the neck to the
nottom down the front and the edges
turned back in a three-eighths-inch
hem on each side. The facing is run
around tho neck and white tape is
used at the throat and at three and
six inches to hold the wrapper to
gether. Flannel skirts are cut tho same
widt hand length a the tiny dress,
hut slope to twelve inches across at
the under arm seam. The neck open
ing is six inches across and an inch
and a half deep, the shoulder souths
are two and one-half inches deep and
the arm-holes three inches long and
an inch and a half curve to give
plenty of room.
Tho best material for the little
dresses, and it is not at all expensive,
is English nainsook. A pink or blue
outing flannel will answer Avell for
the wrappers. Tt s well an select a
dainty stripe, and pink fades much
less than blue.

SS EYE TALKS
(TALK NO. 171.)
In many cases the first result of
wearing compound lenses is a distorted
appearance of objects. A door or
window may appear wider at the top
than at the bottom, or vice versa. A
level floor may appear inclined up or
down. This is a perfectly natural re
sult and is to be expected. It is a
positive evidence that the glasses are
correctly fitted. The eyes have been
trying for so long to adapt themselves
to a defective condition, that normal
vision seems strange and unnatural.
It only requires perseverance for a
few days to overcome this difficulty.
Objects gradually take on a natural
appearance as the eyes beoome accus
tomed to the new condition. We
cannot expect to undo in a moment a
defect which has been growing for
years. With a little time and patience
however, there is no focal defect of
the eyes which cannot be entirely
overcome with lenses.
