JABOT DRESSES IH EVIDENCE
Outfit Is Striking for Afternoon Wear;
Almost Gaudy Silks Combined in
Wonderful Way With
Other Material.
The popularity of the dansant and
the revival of the tango in Paris have
had a remarkable' influence on dress,
writes a French fashion correspond
ent. The smart places where people
gather for afternoon dancing have be-'
come centers of fashion. There are
those who do not go to dance but
simply to study the clothes, not only
for the styles themselves, but for the
wealth of beautiful color that Is ex
pressed in 'many of them, for this
dancing craze has been the means of
introducing unusual colorings of Span
ish origin into our clothes. .
' Jabot dresses are still a very strong
-feature In Paris fashions; one sees
an endless number of them at after
noon dances. , The jabot skirt, when
topped by a simple little bodice, makes
a remarkably pretty afternoon dress.
In' fact, nothing could be more attrac
tive than such a model when devel
oped in a soft, clinging fabric. But
all have not these modest corsages.
There are extreme ones having sleeve
less bodices almost as decollete as an
evening gown.
One worn recently at a tea dance
in Paris, too extreme to be worn by
American women as an afternoon
dress, would make a charming infor
mal dinner frock. The original is de
veloped in black satin and silver lace,
the lace forming the jabot cascade
down the sides of the draped skirt.
A straight piece of the lace goes about
Jhe figure to make an under portion
. for the surplice bodice of black satin.
r Old Favorites in Ntw Patterns.
A great many beautiful new fabrics
have large designs printed in bright
colors. The fashion for having frocks
- made to match coat, linings, -which
prevailed during the past winter, no
doubt had a great deal to do with the
development and elaboration of silks
that were similar to the materials
. which we have been wont to employ
as linings for wraps only. Many old
favorites have returned to us in new
izia as a result ox the extensive use
of these silks. Chiffon is one that has
followed the lead of gay patterned
silks. .

FASHIONS
Sleeveless dress worn recently at an
afternoon tea dance in Paris. It is
developed in black satin, the skirt
having a jabot drapery of lace.
cmnron m , two solia tones migut give
you the impression "of a decidedly
bizarre gown, but one has been de
veloped in just this way and the result
obtained by such a combination is
simple andquaint.
The marriage, as the French say,
of two colors, navy blue and white, is
wonderfully worked out In this de
sign. There is just enough of the
deep blue in the upper part of the
skirt to accentuate this note without
making the dress dark. Where the
printed fabric, which is white with
a; large blue design, joins the plain
one, lace entre-deux is used for out
lining the edges of the points and the
oblique ends of the panels.
Chiffon Finds Fountain of Youth.
The straight line figure is preserved
through the draped blouse, which is
made entirely of the printed chiffon
and has a fichu collar of pure white
chiffon, also elaborated with the
.ntre-deux. This dress is quite aa
charming when developed in emerald
sjreen and white or cerise and white.
tot eays gom- by we thought of print
ed chiffon as suitable only for elderly
ladies' afternoon dresses ; probably
because this fabric was made in sub
dued colors and rather prosy designs.
But this making of chiffon in big pat
terns and brilliant shades has given
It a new lease of life, so that now
printed chiffons are quite the raee.

nmujr, wuuse models, - wnile always,
beautiful, never wfere lovelier than
they are this spring, uses quantities
of printed chiffons combined with
plain materials. In one instance she
unites bright red foulard with chif
fon having a large black and white
pattern. ,
This drt:ss has a long-waisted blouse
Joined to a tunic skirt with entre-deux,
very much after the manner of the
model just described, a point of dif
ference, however, ,lying in the fact
that the blouse, which is of the chif
fon, is cut in a pointed design and ap
plied to the foulard skirt. By using a
long smock blouse "Mme. Jenny clev
erly gives the effect of a chemise
dress.
Lovelier Dresses Than Ever Before.
There is a large rolling collar of the
red silk draped about a rather low-cut
neck on the chiffon blouse. It is
really wonderful the way these very
bright almost gaudy silks are being
combined with figured or plain silks
as well as chiffons and made into
dresses lovelier than any we have
ever had.
Even serge dresses have become
frivolous to be In keeping with the
gay dresses seen at the fashionable
thes dansants. While these dresses
have for a long time been somewhat
enlivened by embroideries and trim
mings of colored leather, the introduc
tion of lingerie effects Into them is
something which we have not seen for
many a season.
-, The woman who liked above every
thing else in her dress effects that
were becoming and feminine regretted
the passing of the always flattering
lingerie collar. Many said, when it
became the mode to wear dresses with
severe necklines, quite unadorned ex
cept for the occasional use of embroid
ered bands or a bit of dark fur, that
women would not adopt a fashion so
lacking in flattering aids 4-beauty.
But that most women are willing to
follow the prevailing fashions is - at
tested by the fact that lingerie collars
were nowhere seen in assemblages of
women who made any pretension to
being smartly dressed. Their absence
was a comparatively brief one, how
ever, for now lingerie effects have re
turned. One of the smartest of the new
serge frocks, which has white organ
die as its trimming, was seen at an
afternqon dance. The color of the
cloth was very dark blue' and dis
played to excellent advantage the
fluted organdie trimming which took
the form of a flaring Medici collar
that continued down the front of the
dress to the wastllne in the form of a
rest.
box coats, One-Piece Dresses.
Box coats are not confined to reg
ulation suits. At the Maison Worth,
as well as at other great Paris houses,
the box coat has been incorporated
Into the idea of a three-piece suit
that is to say, the one-piece dress has
a straight box coat to be worn over it.
Instead of having a contrasting vest
these are open in the front to reveal
the full length of the frock. Ever so
many of these coats which match
frocks have high, straight collars but
toning closely about the neck. These
are unusual on loose coats that do
not close at the front.
Every woman who loves simplicity
and comfort in dress will be delight
ed to know that the best houses are
still featuring the straight-line frock.
A typical Parisian model is made of
white tussah silk almost on the lines
of a coat dress with the one. side
fastening. This closing shows a bind
ing of black satin, which continues, in
a straight line to form a finish for the
high, close-fitting collar. The skirt
portion is slit at the front to show
an underskirt of black satin.

TTY RUSTIC FLOWER VASE
Small Log of Wood May Be Converted
Into Attractive Decoration for
" the Home.
A quaint and pretty little rustic
flower vase can be made from a small
log of wood. The bark should be left
In its. natural condition, and one end
of the log hallowed out with a gouge
and a hammer until a sufficient space
has been cut away to admit of insert
ing a small glass bowl or basin, in
which the flowers may be arranged.

The edge'of the bowl should be level
with the edge of the wood, and therefore-
not visible when filled with
flowers.
The exterior of the stand can be
treated in two ways. It can be just
varnished and left to dry, or It can be
covered with gold paint.
Stands of this .kind look very pretty,
too, with little ferns planted in them,
and when used for that purpose no
bowl r basin Is, of course, required.
The mat upon which the stand
sketched was placed is of a simple
and useful type to make for this pur

green velvet and lifted with sateen. " It
is diamond shape, and trimmed at the
edges with la.ce. -

BLOUSES WORN BY GRANDMA
Dark Taffeta Waists Match Tail
ored Suits in Color Were Prime
Favorites.
Our grandmothers wore dark taffeta
waists to match their tailored suits
In color. This was considered a smart
as well as-a practical fashion at that
time. This season sees taffeta blouses
again " the mode, but now they are
of the4 short overblouse variety that
quite eclipse all others in hip fullness
by having narrow, fluted ruffles from
the waistline to the bottom of the
blouse.
The tops as well as the bottoms of
blouses show evidence of the design
er's efforts to produce new and star
tling effects. Just why many makers
of clothes are trying so hard to launch
the" high collar nobody knows. It is
apparent, however, that th'r efforts
are 1 not meeting any marked degree
of success, probably because women
find the collarless bodice so comfort
able that they are unwilling . to" dis
card it for a high flaring collar which
is uncomfortable despite its smart
ness. Some of the new silk blouses, have
plaited ruffs flaring about the. ears
after the manner of the wired collars
that Madeleine et Madeleine brought
out early in the autumn. One bodice,
of brown crepe, has a plaited ruft
of the silk encircled by a. narrow
suede cravat.

TO BE YEAR OF TRIMMINGS
Stitched Embroidery Has New Leas
of Life Wool Decorations In
High Favor.
- Garments of all kinds promise to be
much trimmed this 'spring, perhaps be
cause except In a few extreme models
the silhouette Is not so different from
that of the late winter.
Stitched embroidery is as good as if
not better than ever. Very often It
serves to quilt-tbln fabrics into a sem
blance of weight Thus a gilet of sev
eral thicknesses of white China silk
Is quilted with navy blue stitching and
makes a very lovely front to a navy
blue tricotine suit. Stitching of plain
fabrics In all-over designs and. con
trasting threads is a novel way of get
ting that desired ' contrast of mate
rial. Fringes are not so ubiquitous as at
this time last year. Very narrow wool
fringe is being applied to taffeta frocks
of the quaint, full-skirted type:
Wool embroidery and appliqued wool
crocheted flowers are another sort of
trimming which the season indorses.
This is particularly good on khakl-kopl
and similar sports silks for pocket
trimming, with the bright vvools re
peated In woven girdle and heavy tas
sels. Two-tone satins, changeable on the
right side, and showing a second color
on the wrong side, are turned back in
narrow bands. This Is an economic
trimming.
And in speaking of trimming it
would never do to Ignore the brushed
wool, lamb's wool and Angora trim
mings. They are being used wherever
possible, even on the strictly tailored
dress or suit.- It is the season's big
gest contribution to novelty, if not
to practicality.
Novel Handle for Your Bag. "
A chain which, will be very fetching
upon a black bag is one which Is
easily and cheaply made. Get a num
ber of the smallest white bone rings
and connect them with loops of black
silk braid. These loops should be
about an inch in length. The black-and-white
costume will be very smart
In spring, and if you are going to
have one of these costumes, a black
taffeta bag with this sort of chain
fastened to the top will give an effect
which s chic. Of course a bag of
navy blue or gray would lend Itself
to this sort of handle treatment also.
