UTTERFLIE8 and roses ecem to form tho motif (or all costumes,
trimmings, garnitures and accessories for tho soason. When of
generous sice, either ono of thoso often appears at tho corsage,
above the Klrdle. near the shoulder, or to tuck up the skirt
drapery. They are most alluring when poised In tho colffuro.
Fur acts, muffs, neckpieces and toques are enlivened with all sorts
of rdses, fashioned of chiffon, satin, velvet and other materials. And, of
course, for tho pofonnial corsage, they come singly, in clusters, wreath
and garlands. , .
Graceful butterflies are seen very much poised on hats and big tullo
ones, with wired wings, often form a dainty ovenlng cap. Charming
boudoir caps, made of chiffon with spangled butterflies, nro shown In
many of the shops.
For a long while the butterfly motif has been tho most popular de
nim for embroider? faddists, belnc used on household linen, luncheon
sets, handkerchiefs and lirigerles, cither embroidered in tho satin
stitch, in eyelet work, or laco medallions with tho same design. A now
fad Is to mount them -under glass, making- a very attractive design for a
tea tray. Tally cards, place cards and crcpo paper luncheon seta all show
small butterflies hovering over their -surface.
Neither must I omit the smart black, mesh veilings with a little but'
terfly outlined In heavy black lace and displayed on the cheoK. Tne
mesh must bo so light that it hardly, shows, so the ono ornament stands
out as If stamped on 'one's face.
