Smart Gowns for Various Occasions
Although the modes of the winter ar©
rallier prone to elaborateness, some of the
smnrtest gowns seen are made In very
•Impie line», the attractiveness of the
frock lying In tbe coloring and In the
Perfect fit. Indeed, much elaboration a»
to the trimming of a gown la apt to be
disastrous, and often a much leea
tlous frock, daintily made and with an
effective touch of handwork about the
bMlce Is much more successful than a
fussily trimmed frock. Of course,
Is s certain smart almpllcltf which re
quire* expert handling, especially In cloth
and velvet» and auch materials where tbe
cut snd fit has to be on a par with the
best tailoring, but In the light colored

adne, cashmere and auch fabric#, the home
leiiiLstrea». If ahe Is clever In designing
aud can give tb« little finishing touches
which make such a difference In the effect
of any* gown, can achieve quite as good
results as the moat expensive dressmaker.
For Instance. I recently aaw a frock of

tnatcrlal of which cost Juat 50 cent» a

owrl«pp«d at tbe upper part about the

th«» spaces in between being filled In with
l* 1 '" stltchea In ecru thread matching the

Icch wide lace uaed to form the yoke, ex
tending crosswise around under tbe arm*
to Jacket effect, tbe aame lace extending
«ver the topa of the elbow-length alewvea.
Tbt- sleeves, by the way. were a very at
tractive feature of the gown. They ware
cat In circular fashion, with three gradu
ated applied tuck« about th« edg«, each
bjek being finished by a row of plalt«d
•***0 ValecHennee lace. There whs also
•d under sleeve, also of tbs open variety,
of ecru net, edged with a double row of
Pelted net edged with tbe lace. These
loots, open sleeves were attached at tbe
•rmhole to a small, aflort under aleeva of
the gown material. Tbe aklrt waa In
