Lady Modish 00. Shirt Vakt Suits.
For Borne time I have noticed pecu
liar alluiing grace a puzzling ja no eais
quoi about certain women I have en
countered at Newport and in New York,
which at once charmed and perplexed
me. Many other women wore exquisite
gowns, yet it waa perfectly clear that
they lacked the essentially graceful
quality of their more fortunate sisters.
Their gowns were admirable in style,
but they possessed a rigidity of bodice
that was absent in those I so much ad
mired. At a recent dinner four out of
six of the women present wore gownB
which possessed this distinctive feature,
the secret of which when learned proved
astonishingly simple. The gowns are
called and the title is somewhat mis
leading as applied to dinner costume
"dhirt waist suite." I say misleading,
bacause to the uninitiated a Bbirt waist
suit suggests the golf links, a pedestrian
tour or a day's sboppiog afoot. The
name is a fitting one, nevertheless, for
the distinctive feature of these suits is a
boneleBG waist, which readily accounts
for the undulating grace so much ad
mired, and to which I have so often re
ferred sb a necessary adjunct to woman
ly beauty. With the boned corset and
another set of stiff whalebones on top of
it, the wonder is that the feminine torso
has shown any grace or freedom of
movement whatever. A clever creator
of beautiful things for women inaugu
rated the innovation, and I venture to
predict that it is only a question of
months when the foolish and beauty
marring boned linings will be done
away with altogether. The idea of
these boneless waists is to fit the well
coraeted figure with absolute perfection,
leaving all itabeatrBtiiTfrneg unchanged.
And this k the only point of resemblance
between the new shirtwaist suit of
fashion and the shirt waist suit as we
UEed to know it
Evening gowns of this style are the
loveliest things possible, and both large
and small women among the fashion
ables are rapidy adopting the idea, to
the absolute exclusion of all others. As
I looked the other day at some of the
recent creations of Eugenie, who is re
sponsible for this charming io novation,
I wondered how it was possible that
women ever consented to encase them
selves in the old-style whalebones.
A geranium scarlet gown of crepe de
chine, with a short-sleeve bodice fast
ened in the back, was simply a dream
of beauty. There were the tiniest of
tucks at the shoulders and down the
back, while the front was embroidered
in a grape design to the' belt line. The
skirt also showed this design in a front
panel, and had a shaped flounce on
either Bide, widening en train in the
back. The embroidery was all done in
red silk end there were quantities of
all sorts of flounces on the silk slip un
derneath to make the desirable spread
at the bottom. The waist as are all
the waists of this sort is worn over a
perfectly fitted boneless slip, with the
desirable effect I bave already men
tioned. Hand embroidery is having the most
remarkable run, and is seen on the
sheer linen blouses, over silk slips, col.
ored or white, which are very popular for
evening wear with handsome skirts.
Another evening waist of great beauty
was made entirely of narrow Valen
ciennes insertion, fastening in the back
and having short flounced elbow-sleeves.
This waa Been over a pink silk slip, and

waist trimmed with a yoke an points ot
Irish crochet lace colored dark blue to
match the goods. The sleeve has a cuff
to confine the fullness from the elbow
and the entire garment is sufficiently
chic to attract the attention and envy
of every modish woman who sees it. An

the bottom of this is buttoned a deep,

elaborately trimmed with lace, and very

flounces may be unbuttoned and laun
