"I expect to be married in a cloth suit, and wish to lighten it with an attractive white waist. What ma terial and style would you advise?" Make your blouse of white China or taffeta silk. Tuck the waist In lines of tiny tucks an inch apart. If it is not too much work to supply it, a narrow round yoke of small silk folds and lace Inserting would Improve it. If you use the soft silk, make a jabot of it, edged in lace, down tbe center front. If the stlffer silk is used, make a plait with alee Inserting and edge. The sleeve* should be tucked to the el bow, and the cuffs be of lace In serting and edge. • • • "I have light hair and blue eyes. I would like to select a becoming hat to wear with a street suit." Flat hats are wora this season, and as you do not name the color of your suit I can only suggest a black service hat trimmed with a little white. • * * "I would be glad if you would glv' me your advice as to ready made tailor suits. Is there any choice between blue aud brown as the more stylish or serviceable?" Either is very serviceable, and as brown is very much worn this win ter, I would recommend it. MRS. MBNZIBS.
