This Season the Popular Fabric Comes In a Great Variety of Weights Some of the Colors Most Popular. Novelties may come and novelties may go, but linen remains forever a dependable and popular fabric. It comes in a variety of weights, from cobweb handkerchief linen to the quality which is almost as heavy and as warm as cheviot. : A medium-weight linen makes the most serviceable and comfortable summer costume. The extremely make a stunning three-piece suit or. princess frock and loose coat.' The very smartest touch on the linen costume for midsummer is, of course, this hand-embroidery in large,' sprawling, extravagant patterns, done with mercerized floss, always white, Whatever the tint of the gown. .And with this embroidery are used quanti-. ties of buttons, some covered with the plain linen, others covered with cro cheting and still others, done in lace.

The tailored suits are quite fre quently piped with a contrasting color, and black and white striped fabric is used with almost every tint, pale blue, ' lavender, white, gray and black. Brown is piped with pure white or ecru, and on nearly all the tailored coats a vest is suggested, if only with a piping around the inside of the collar.

The seven-gored skirt is laid ,to give a - panel effect over plaits, and then soutache braid and buttons, both in white, suggest that the panels are but toned to the plaits. They are used in the same way to suggest that the blouse is buttoned to the plaited side pieces. The chemisette and cuffs are of white princess net, and the deep-point-, ed opening in the blouse is outlined j by a conventional pattern done in wash soutache. The girdle should be made of the raspberry linen, for a white girdle would detract from the :wearer's height. Thé net and braid and but tons, all in white, give sufficient relief from the rich hue of the linen.
