Gowns of organdio as J was about
to Gay last week rank next in popu
larity to gowns of all lace on the Bum
mer wardrobe of tbo well-dressed
woman. There never was a season
when flimsy materials were more in
vogue, not only for day wear but for
candlelight toilettes as well.
Heavy velvets, BatinB, and all stuffs
that savor of a dead and gone winter
season are now relegated to oblivion
with the coming of warm woather.
Delightful change from a few years
ngo, when women dressed for dinner
partiee, on a hot night in summer, with
the same oppressive, heavy splendor
with which they were wont to desk
IhomselveB for a similar function when
the mercury wbb down to freezing
Nothing is too simple in the way of
fabric to serve for the building of these
airy aud dninty frocks, that carry an
atmosphere of refreshing coolness in
their every fold. Lace, organdie, point
d'esprit, Liberty gauze, swanskin, pine
apple muBlin, net, chiffon, batiste
there Ib indeed no end to the fascinat
ing fabrics that can be turned into
charming toilets. Even dotted Swiss
probably the material for which one
gets the most for the least money, and
which represents the quintessence of
economy is far from being despised.
As a matter of fact, one of the smartest
gowns of this genre that I have reen ie
fashioned of white Swiss, covered closely
with a small dot tiny dots, let me say,
are much better style than the larger
ones in this particular material com
bined with black Chantilly lace, the
lace forming a long polonaise. This
polonaise was worn over a plain skirt of
dotted Swiss, and fasteaed ''down the
front with a row of email stress but
tons. Plain and very lanky skirts are
much better Btyle now than all the
ruflly arrangements exploited the early
part of the season, and they bring out
the lines of the tunic or polonaise with
much more grace and effectiveness.
This is the moment, by the way, to
use your grandmother's black thread
lace shawl. Nothing iB smarter than a
polonaise fashioned of Buch a shawl, or
it can be turned into a long coat; or, if
one does not fancy that, it can be used
"Capuchin" fashion on a cape of white
taffeta covered with black net; or a
dozen other ways, which depend largely
upon the size and shape of the shawl,
and one of which, will give you a gar
ment that you may feel justly proud to
possess. For it is not everyone who can
boast of a grandmother, you know, let
alone a thread-lace-shawl grandmother.
But to return to organdies. There
are organdies and organdies.
For some organdies you pay thirty
five and fifty cents, and exquisite color
ing you get for the price; and for some
organdies you pav one dollar, or two, or
three the more expensive it is the
more artistic the coloring and the finer
and softer the fabric. For Borne organ
dies, you can pay well, I don't know
how much a yard, because they do not
come that way. Each gown is fashioned
expressly for its wearer, and the price is
considerable, because, in this cbbb, the
plain black organdie is hand-painted in
whatever design and coloring appeal
most to the woman who is ordering it.
Raudnitz is responsible for a very
good model of this kind. A number of
women, including Mrs. "Stuyve" Fish,
are exploiting it. It has a black back
ground, over which are scattered closely
big bunches of huge American Beauty
roses. The tints of the rose and the
green of its leaves are charmingly ex
ecuted. Mrs. Fish's gown is trimmed
with black lace and has a tiny guimpe
of cloth-of-gold. With this gown she
wears a hat that is itself a veritnblo rose
The quality of clothes that ono noods
in ono's summer wardrobo, to bo well
and comfortably gowned in this change
able climato of ours, is something ap
palling. You think you havo got just
the thiegs you need, when piff! merrily
up goon the thermometor sovoral de
grees higher, or down it goes equally
gayly several degrees lower, than you
had anticipated when laying in your
Btock of summer things. So the ma
jority of ub, unices possessed of un
limited resources, epond a good many
days in the aggravating condition of
being too warmly clad or not clad
warmly enough.
That is whore the fashion of tho coat
and skirt, with its vast number of odd
bodices, has been so invaluable. Un
happily, tho coat and skirt regime is
not what it was. In fact, except to bo
worn on occasions that involve actual
travel, the really well-dres9ed woman
haB more or leB9 tabooed them.
Even well-dressed women will do
stupid things occasionally; for in place
of the ubiquitous coat and Bkirt toiletto,
one requires a collection of those "sim
ple little gowns" that one talks of so
lightly, but which, nevertheless, mako
one's milliner's bill anything but "sim
ple." To be sure of being well and
comfortably dressed one needs at least
a dozen crowns of thiB descripton, of
various weights and hueB.
Just at this season, however, many of
the smart women are flitting in and out
of town and making all manner of
small journeys; their coats and skirts
are still so much in evidence that the
caeual observer might never guess that
their cachet had to a great extent
Mrs. "Jack" Astor, for one, has been
wearing a very smart little coat and
skirt lately. The coat is an Eton of
dark blue serge, made absolutely plain,
with a rolled collar with small rovers
done in light blue cloth. The skirt
falls, in long, straight, narrow lines,
with no suggestion of the double skirt
or tunic effect.
I notice there is a disposition on the
part of many of the best dressed women
to eschew these double drapery effects;
aud I think they are quite right, for
really, although thoy are very effective
when carried out in diaphanous ma
terials, they often look exceedingly
foolish when adapted to gowns to be
used practically.
With this little frock Mrs. Astor
wears a round hat of turquoise blue
straw, trimmed simply with a big soft
bow of chiffon of the same color.
