Country No Longer Must Ask What Is the Fashion, but Is Enabled to Pro duce Sufficient to Supply the Demand. New York. I'm to is never handi capped In creating fashions by the uctions of other designers). Thnt Is why she Is powerful. America has nl wiih suffered under this 'handicap be cause Mhi' has followed Paris, usscrtH u prominent fashion authority. She hits nocr been Inclined to risk the exploitation of fabrics, fashions and colorings that were not sponsored by the mother of fashions. It is said of us thnt wo acknowledge the best In every uatlcn and bring It to our hhorey. We know Jhe best In every depaittnent of art, science and literature. If we are compelled to put our knowledge to practical use, wo at lenst have the best to go on. We are not Ignorant. The time has come for this experb nient, as wc nil know, and the observer thinks that a few medals of honor should be distributed to those who have gone "over the top" In designing clothes In this country. It took great commercial courage and It-required a sound knowledge of the American public. What France Did America Does. Hero are two anecdotes which nr ceiit,uutu the point. They happened n dozen years apart. Mine. Puqulti saw several bolts of checked silk In a ninii- ufucturer's hands. Neither the weave, the coloring nor the design was In fashion, to quote her own phrase. The manufacturer coiaplalncd that he had no call for this quantity of material und that he w.,uld sell it for about u franc and n half u yard. Mine. Pif quia took It till, went to her salous on tlio Itue do la I'al.v, tinned tlio cheap chuck silk Into mi alluring frock of her own design, and then wore It at TiouvIlle-by-the-Seu. Shu made the frock, the design, this color -and tho fabric fashionable. Everyone wanted to wear what the wore. She 'sold every Inch of the material nt u price that brought her unmeasured profit on the transaction. Lnst month an American designer was, ook1ng over the stock of u .lace COMING SOON: 1 "THE WOMAN IN THE WEBB" Vitagraph's Great Special. In "THE SUN OF DEMOCRACY." U. tV Government Official War Re view, "T(ME WHIP" and "THE 8TILL 'ALAKM." The liurRnln was closed. The gown was designed. It sold Immediately. It wns copied so fast thnt the other 49 scarfs melted nwny like flakes of eonp In hot wnter. Spanish lace was offered as a first fashion. That Is a good example of tho change that has come over the Ameri can merchant and the American de signer. We no longer have to nsk what Is the fashion, but are probably enabled to make the fashion for our own continent. Management of Black Taffeta. It is easy to realize thut taffetu has come Into a first summer fashion, al though the populnr mind does not re gard it us one of the loely weaves aBBBBBSBflfcftiiiij I KM II liaM ' BBBsMlSBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBal ' bbTssbbbbW f 111 ' in YiYnmifliW M' Here's a bluo serge coat split Up the back to make commonplace blue serge less Insignificant.

The skirt Is a series of small ruffles edged with white silk cord and cut In peg-lop fashion. The slim bodice Is mounted on a yoke of taffeta braided with white cord, and the short sleeves are cut In one with the yoke. There is a pink rose with green leaves at the waist, and there are green shoes and stockings. of tho world, because It Is plentiful. There Is no trouble about getting all tho tnffetu one wants, and It is best that we model our wardrobes for the near future on the materials that can be bought In this country In sufllclent quantity to correspond to our needs. Much can be done with this mate XiuWthnt will result in u gown out of tho ordinary und conspicuous for charm and cleverness. If you could have seen n woman who cntne Into a rcstuurnnt for dinner Wearing n cer tain bluck tiiftotii guwn, you would have been convinced in tho twinkling of mi eyo that tlio fabric matters noth ing if tho designer has cleverness. Tito skirt was made of narrow rutlles that extended from waist to ankles, each rullle edged with u white silk cord. Tho hem was excessively narrow. Tho foundation for theso rallies fitted the llguro llko n slientlr. There was u bodice, straight und Dim ple, and tho major part of It was n yoke with short sleeves which was braided with white cord in a fantastic design. At the side of the waist was n deep pink satin rose with green vel vet, leaves. The slippers und stock ings were green. There was nothing demure ubout this block taffeta gown. Treat Blue Serge'ln Various Ways. Blue sorgo Is a fabric that will al ways to with us, us fur iin tho manu facturers und the wnr board can look ahead. It Is usually midnight blue, nml, given a few yards of It In this color, tho designers do not want to sit down and turn It out into InslgnlUcunt frocks and Inconspicuous suits, A woman who came to u "defense" luncheon ouo day woru u bluo serge gown thut wuh the product of u clever designer und it surely turned our ideus ubout suits topsy-turvy. Tlio coat was upllt up the hack as well us tho front. It was worn over n long cuirass lilouso, tho kind thnt gains In Importance every day. The blouse was made of a richly einbrold ered tricot in blue, bluck und dashes of dull red. It did not cling tightly to the figure, hut outlined It mora than usuul. Over It hung tint loose bluo sergo cout, opening In u deep V In the middle of the front and the bluck. It wuh closed at the neckline nnd had n collar of tho serge. There was a loose belt of the mateilal, and tho skirt was exceedingly narrow and short. Uy the way, It Is wise for uny worn tin who orders a new suit today to see that the skirt has u sin-able hem, for thu new order to tho shoemakers, given by the government, which de mauds low shoes for the duration ot the wnr, may change the skirt length. I doubt It. Tho length may be changed, but It will not be because ot the low shocw, for gaiters, which are iiiade of fabric, may be as high as desired, mid women prefer tlietu to high bouts. We may also ndr.pt tho French fash Ion of wearing servlcenblo Oxfowl tics with straight heels and rounded toes. The bootmakers say they lmvo more orders for these today than ever. With litich shoes the average, woman does not care whether her skirt la eight or ten Inches from the ground, unless she Is given to suffering from eiposod ankles.
