shaped with five gores and is tucked in clusters at each seam and at the back to flounce depth. Both skirts have their fulness arranged in an inverted box-plait at the back, the tucks concealing the plait in the outside, and the essential flare is given at the lower edge, where a measurement of about four yards and one-half is allowed in the middle sizes. A ribbon belt is added.

White mistral étamine would be attractive with a yoke vest of taffeta cut-work or of Irish lace. Coronationred canvas is also smart, with black and white reliefs. Blue albatross would be very attractive with the collar, bertha and cuffs of velvet trimmed with bands of insertion. A velvet belt could be used. Good results are to be had with veiling, grenadine, foulard, challis and soft woollen textiles in general.

A pretty design in slot-seam effect is pictured on page 352 developed in silvery réséda-green cashmere, relieved with ivory-white insertion. The blouse waist has the fulness at the back taken up in tucks turned to give the slot-seam effect, and the fronts, which droop characteristically, are similarly treated and

A blouse with a fancy yoke-facing is a noteworthy feature of the mode shown on page 353 in serge, contrasted with braid. The blouse, topped both back and front by the yoke-facing, is designed to be slipped on over the head, the neck being left open for a short distance. A tape inserted in a casing at the lower edge holds it in to the waist, and a deep sailor-collar embroidered at the corners gives the essential breadth to the shoulders. Plaits confine the fulness of the sleeves, which open with the bands at the inside of the arm. A silk tie is knotted carelessly over the ends of the collar, and a pocket is inserted at the left side.

the five-gored order, shows the popular slot seams stitched to flounce depth. A measurement of about three yards and three-fourths is allowed at the lower edge in the middle

A sleeveless under-body finished with a standing collar and closed at the back with buttons and buttonholes, supports the skirt, which is shaped with five gores and may have the fulness at the back disposed of in an inverted box-plait or taken up in gathers. A shield facing displaying an embroidered anchor is supplied.

Red flannel with white reliefs and a decoration of white braid would be smart. A very appropriate sailor costume would be of navy-blue chev iot trimmed with red braid or finished with machinestitching and an emblem on the shield and in the corners of the collar worked in red silk. Especially effective would be a suit of this style made up in white mohair. Lady's-cloth, Sicilian, alpaca, and some of the heavy wash goods are wise selections.

We have pattern No. 6259 in 10 sizes from 5 to 14 years of age. For a girl of 9 years, the costume needs 2% yards of material 44 inches wide, with 2 yard of silk 20 inches wide for the tie. Price of pattern, 9d. or 20 cents.

No. 6234.-GIRLS' OR MISSES' TUCKED
DRESS.

Bayadère tucks form the decoration of this frock represented on page 354 in a development of biscuit-colored Henrietta, finished with machine-stitching. The waist, mounted on a lining, is tucked above the lower edge, and a back closing is effected with buttons and buttonholes. Straight bands complete the bishop sleeves, which are tucked to correspond, and a standing collar encircles the neck. An attractive feature is a sailor collar that gives the necessary breadth to the shoulders, revealing the front in shield effect, and a ribbon tie is arranged at the ends. An inverted box-plait or gathers may dispose of the fulness at the back of the skirt, which is of the three-piece variety, joined to the waist. Tucks are arranged above the lower edge, where the necessary flare may be accentuated by a circular flounce, if desired. The final touch is supplied in a softly crushed ribbon belt and

rosette.

Dull-blue étamine would be stylish with Irish lace over pale-yellow taffeta, and blue taffeta ribbon for the sash. Very serviceable would be a dress of red lady's-cloth, finished with machine-stitching. Veiling, cashmere, albatross, challis, plaid and silk may be utilized.

We have pattern No. 6234 in 9 sizes from 6 to 14 years of age. To make the dress without flounce for a girl of 9 years, requires 3 yards of material 44 inches wide; with flounce, 4 yards in the same width. Price of pattern, 9d. or 20

represented on page 353, and the development is in réséda green albatross and dotted silk. By referring to figure 121 G another view may be obtained. The medium-long blouse is tucked at the top to becoming yoke depth, and a closing may be arranged invisibly at the centre of the front or back. The requisite drooping effect is obtained, gathers regulating the fulness at the lower edge. Tucks ornament the bolero sleeves, which are short enough to disclose the bishop sleeves drooping over strap-bands. A standing collar with a pointed overlapping end shows at the neck. The short bolero, which may be separate or attached to the blouse, has a low, rounding outline followed by a strap that crosses at the front with pointed ends. Buttons are employed for ornament, and tucks finish the bolero at the lower edge. A lining acts as foundation. A three-piece upper portion, tucked at its lower edge and lengthened by a circular flounce constitutes the skirt, which is attached to the blouse. The fulness at the back is taken up in an inverted box-plait or collected in gathers, and tucks also adorn the flounce.

Old-blue cashmere would accord well with cream silk.

A lining supports both the waist and sleeves. The skirt, which is joined to the waist with a cording of the material, is five-gored, and the slot-seam effect is introduced at each side of the front-gore. Gathers or an inverted box-plait may control the fulness at the back.

Indian-red étamine, with black crochet buttons would be chic, and the same idea might be carried out effectively in white mistral étamine, with silver buttons and touches of pale-blue peau de soie.

No. 6246.-GIRLS' OR MISSES' DRESS.

A Russian blouse is the distinguishing feature of the mode depicted on page 355 developed in crimson serge trimmed with Persian bands. The blouse, extending in the characteristic way below the waist-line, droops slightly all around and is shirred under a belt that defines the long-waisted effect. The closing is arranged at the left side in the usual way, and a strap collar that closes with the waist at the side finishes the neck. Strap-bands complete the bishop sleeves.

An under-body that closes at the back with buttons and buttonholes supports the skirt, which is of the five-gored order, slightly gathered all around. The blouse is partially secured to the body under the belt.

Challis in one of the new green shades would unite attractively with black, white and gold appliqué. Lady's-cloth, flannel, cashmere, Sicilian, plaid and novelty suitings give excellent results.

at each side of the centre of the back, where the closing is made with buttons and buttonholes. The waist droops prettily in front, gathers controlling the fulness. Tucks,

discontinued to form puffs over straight 'bands, vary the sleeves, which are also made over linings. A novel collar in two sections with ends extended in tabs that cross at the throat completes the neck. Of circular shaping is the skirt, which is tucked in clusters to correspond with the waist, to which it is attached. An inverted boxplait disposes of the fulness at the back, and a ribbon sash is worn.

Pretty effects are obtained with albatross, Arabe lace being introduced in medallions on the waist. Veiling, voile, challis and pliable fabrics are appropriate.

We have pattern No. 6244 in 9 sizes from 6 to 14 years of age. For a girl of 9 years, the dress requires 22 yards of material 44 inches wide. Price of pattern, 9d. or 20 cents.

No. 6212. GIRLS' DRESS.

Green is one of the favorite colors this season and in the réséda tint, in challis, was used for the mode represented on page 355, in combination with tucked and plain silk, appliqué bands and ornaments supplying the garniture. Figure 116 G shows this design again. Gathers are arranged at the lower edge of the waist and also at the top, where the neck is shaped in low, rounding outline to reveal a yoke mounted on the lining, and neck completion is afforded in a standing collar. The lining may be cut away and the neck left in low effect. Buttons and buttonholes are used for the closing at the back, and an ornamental feature is a pointed bertha that broadens the shoulders. The pattern makes provision for the sleeves to terminate at the elbow, or the lining faced to simulate deep cuffs. Tucks decorate the straight gathered skirt, which is

No. 6198.-GIRLS' DRESS.

Cluny lace is effectively disposed on the dress pictured on page 356, for the development of which biscuit-colored albatross was selected. A different make-up is portrayed at figure 114 G. The medium-long waist of the dress is mounted on a lining and displays fulness at the top, both at the front and at the back, where a closing with buttons is made. Gathers regulate the fulness at the lower edge, and a band collar finishes the neck. Double circular caps give style to the bishop sleeves that are gathered at the wrists into narrow bands, and frills provide an ornamental touch. A pretty decoration is obtained at the front with the trimming simulating a box-plait. Straps are employed to hold in place a ribbon sash that conceals the joining of the fivegored skirt to the waist. The fulness at the back may be taken up in gathers or an inverted box-plait. A circular flounce headed by insertion may be added to heighten the flare at the lower edge if desired, and from beneath it the skirt should be cut away. Knots of ribbon are used with good effect.

Nut-brown veiling with Arabe lace and touches of pale blue would be a pleasing conception, and challis, serge cashmere, mohair, flannel and pliable woollen goods are suggested.

We have pattern No. 6198 in 8 sizes for girls from 5 to 12 years of age. For a girl of 9 years, the dress without flounce requires 3% yards of material 36 inches wide; with skirt cut away beneath flounce, 3% yards in the same width. Price of pattern, 9d. or 20 cents.

downe and lace. The dress, which is laid in plaits stitched to form tucks, introduces the short-waisted Empire or "Reform " effect, the relieved fulness falling in graceful folds below. The neck is shaped in low, rounding outline, and a tucked bertha forms a pretty finish; or a yoke-facing, available for faggoting or other fancy effects, is arranged on the lining, and the frock finished in high-necked style with a standing collar. The body lining closes at the back with buttons and buttonholes, and may be cut out if a low neck is desired. The bishop sleeves, supported by two-seam linings, may be gathered to droop over straight cuffs, or puff sleeves, also made over linings, may replace them. A centre and under-arm seams give shaping to the dress, which may be in regulation or deeper length.

Old-pink albatross with a yoke of all-over embroidered white taffeta would be pretty for the youthful wearer. Satisfactory results may be obtained as well with cashmere, veiling, challis, velutina, étamine, wool crash and novelty suitings..

We have pattern No. 6257 in 10 sizes for girls from 3 to 12 years of age. To make a dress for a girl of 9 years, will require 334 yards of material 36 inches wide, with yard of all-over lace 18 inches wide to cover collar and yoke. Price, 9d. or 20 cents.

Slot seams distinguish coats as well as suits. This feature is evident in the top garment pictured on page 357 in developments of light-weight broadcloth and silk, finished with machine-stitching. The coat, shown in another construction at figure 126 G, is in box style, semi-adjusted with a seam at the centre of the back, and the fulness at each side is taken up in plaits stitched to simulate slot seams extending to flounce depth. The fronts display a similar effect, and lap broadly at the centre, where a closing is arranged with buttons and buttonholes in doublebreasted fashion. Straight bands finish the bishop sleeves, and stylish neck completion may be afforded in three or

No. 6226.-MISSES' SHIRT - WAIST OR SHIRT - BLOUSE.

Devotees of ping pong will welcome the design pictured on this page in a development of old-pink madras contrasted with white piqué. The mode, which is known as the pingpong shirt-waist, is differently portrayed at figure 115 G. The waist, blousing in front, where the closing is made with buttons and buttonholes through a box-plait arranged at the centre, displays a smoothly adjusted back with tucks taking up the fulness. Gathers or tucks stitched to the bust may dispose of the fulness on the shoulders, and a flat turndown collar, pointed or round at the back, gives style to the neck; a four-in-hand tie, with wide pointed ends, and embroidered with an appropriate device supplies a chic air. Bands that button with pointed ends complete the bishop sleeves, which may be in full length, or shortened to the elbow. The belt is of leather, and, if desired, a lining consisting of dart-fitted fronts and a back seamed at the centre may be used.

White flannel with accessories of scarlet silk stitched in white would be smart; red with white reliefs would be equally striking. Lady's-cloth, flannel, albatross, Henrietta, challis, taffeta, Liberty satin and plaids make up at tractively and give very satisfactory results.

We have pattern No. 6226 in 6 sizes for misses from 12 to 17 years of age. For a miss of 15 years, the shirt-waist requires 34 yards of material 27 inches wide, with 3/4 yard of contrasting material in the same width for collar, sleevebands and tie. Price, 9d. or 20 cents.

No. 6218.-MISSES' SHIRT-WAIST OR SHIRT-BLOUSE. Effects in slot seams are very stylish, and the mode represented on this page in réséda-green albatross conforms to this style. The waist, which may be mounted on a lining consisting of dart-fitted fronts and a back seamed at the centre, has the fulness taken up from the shoulders to the waist-line at the back in tucks stitched to simulate slot seams, and in front to yoke depth, a similar effect being arranged at the centre, where a Duchess closing is employed.
