corsets. The kind which Is most
in evidence is the long, tight, high style

never has consented to the large walsted
styles, and has worn these of -the ahape

bodices are cut with the linings heavily

It is here as night cap, alias dejeuner cap,
alias 'boudoir cap. alias convalescent cap,
and It Is upon the devoted head of the
convalescent upon the other side of the
water that It made Its reappearance. Those
who remember the floppy "nets" into which
their tresses were bundled in childhood can
hardly conceive of the elegance of the embroidery-edged

bow which would do credit to A lingerie
hat In which the "silting up" Invalid
decorates herself. Some of these caps ure
made with a. "mob" crown with enough,
frills to look like a Charlotte Corday hat.
Other simple little muKlin affairs are made
like a sweeping cap, only of thin muslin

as members, it Kill be a way of procuring
smart, well cut gowns at little cost.
"TIib women who can afford to y $J5

should be able to make at least three
gowns during the ten sessions, doing the
machine work while here and leaving the
finishing touches and handwork fr com

pay a dressmaker the amount of l.er club

receive a very Inferior cut at that.

expense than the price of the material.
"We keep all the leading fashion maga
