Party Frocks For Youthful
The debutante and her youthful

keen joys of life, even in war times.

war work and letter writing, she cer

Is to be gathered from a new party
frock. And the party frock is easier
to make at the home than other frocks,
excepting, of course, house dresses It
is for this reason not an extravagance
In war times.
A very pretty model is illustrated
here of a frock that ought to Inspire
any girl with a desire to make it for
herself. Crepe georgette, plain and
printed, a little taffeta silk and a bit
of embroidery in silk make up its an
alysis so far as materials are con
cerned. All the sewing, Including the
long-stitch embroidery, is simple
enough. There is an undersllp of thin
ellk to begin with, with a baby waist
which takes the place of a corset
cover. The skirt of the frock is of
plain crepe georgette hanging straight
from a gathered waistline, and the
low-necked bodice to of taffeta, emc
embroidered in motifs at each side. It
slips over a chemisette of lace with
a collar at the back that disappears
under the bodicea very new and
pleasing feature that adds to the be*
comingness and appropriateness of the
xAn overskirt of wide lace falls to
the hem of the crepe skirt and to par
tially covered with an overdrape of
lovely printed crepe georgette. It will
be noticed that the skirt to quite long
and the neck only moderately low. If,
there to one thing more than another
that returning conquering heroes win
admire in the American girls they are
prepared to adore it will be a pretty
modesty in dress. They will come
back prepared to make comparisons.
They are already convinced that the
Americans arethe prettiest and sweety
est girls In the world and the glrto
must see to It that they don't change
their minds.
Four Hats, Simple and Smart
These hats are distinctly youthful
in designthe breezy young American
is written in their smart lines and
simple construction. Most of the hats
of this character are made .of silk or
satinsatin is, in fact, in the ascen
dentbut they may be made of other
fabrics, as broadcloth, duvetyn, velvet,
and occasionally fur fabrics, or other
of the soft and very pliable materials
which are used In coats and frocks.
For the young woman at school a more
appropriate little group could hardly
be assembled than the* four models
shown above.
At the top a sprightly small hat to
made of satin. It has a soft crown
and narrow brim plaited and turned
np at the front. Two strands of those
colore* wooden beads that milliners
have so often found a place for on
this season's hats are festooned
across the front.
The tam in all sorts of interpreta
tions, from the most casual to the
most dignified of stylen, appears In
millinery ftw both maid and matron.
At the left a tam made of navy blue
taffeta reminds one of the flat hats
of the navy. It has a corded band
about the head and many girls can
wear this shape becomingly. At the
right a silk hat has a fine plaited
frill about the face and plaited rib
bonpulled out so that only the
marks of the plaits are leftis tied
about the base of the crown. Hats
like these are made In colors to match
suits and frocks, osah Macks. Very dark
brown and black hold commanding po
sitions In youthful millinery, and these
hats are expected to do much service.
The remaining hat Is a dressier bit
of girlish headwear. Its underbrim is
faced with shirred crepe georgette,
and loops of ribbon cover the smooth
fabric on the upper brim, which might
be either satin or velvet Having
gone to the extravagance of looped
ribbons sod shirring*, this hat ess
serves In the matter of trimming and
makes a silk ornament and tassel a
faultless finish.
The basis and groundwork of friend
ship Is the forgetting of self through
that sympathy which mast always
1st between friends.
