I FASHION II
From green to red Dame Fashion
has turned with startling suddenness.
The new red is not a geranium red,
nor Is it a tomato red, nor can it be
called cardinal, vermilllon, crimson or
any of those familiar shades. It is
clear fruit red. Fruit red is a shade
borrowed from the ripe fruit. It
matches the ripe strawberry.
Fruit red is worn in the newest
gowns; its color pervades the lawns
and challies, the foulards, the batistes
and even the durable cheviots. You
can trace it through the very thin fab
rics which are to be worn over linings;
and you can see It In the parasol which
miladl flings over her shoulder and
which frames her face so becomingly.
Its deep, partly subdued red casts a
glow over the complexion and gives
you the flush which you want to have.
Upon hats you see it, not In the tone
alone, but in the actuality. Cherries'
strawberries, raspberries on the stem,
plums, very small peaches, little apples
of the variety known as "love apples."
all are grouped and worn, or worn
separately, to trim the backs of hats
or the sides.
Fruits are also arranged in the mid
dle of bunches of ribbon, ribbon choux
as they are called, and put on as bust
and belt bows.
At the lawn party for It Is now the
season of the lawn party you notice
many of the shades of red mingling
and combining most harmoniously; in
fact, this is the only color which goes
well with Itself. Green becomes jeal
ous of its sister shade, and to get two
greens that harmonize is very difficult;
but with red It Is different, and all
reds seem able to dwell in one family.
Mrs. Arthur Paget wore at a lawn
party an afternoon affair a gown of
peach red lawn. It had a silk finish,
and Its lining was peach red silk. The
lining, .if so handsome a thing can be
called by so homely a name, had a
band of lace set in across the bust.
The lace was the filet lace which
has so captured the feminine fancy,
and it was put in insertion fashion,
from under-arm seam to under-arm
seam, right across the front The silk
lawn was absolutely plain over this
handsome lining, and looked more like
The semi-skirt was managed In, the
same harmonious fashion, but in a
different way. Here the filet lace be
gan at the belt, and extended down
ward in panels. There were six panels
on the skirt, the longest being In the
middle of the front, and the shorter
ones at the sides and back; then came
one of those great frills around the
foot, side-pleated and trained.
And, by the way, no one can notice
the summer figure without noticing
its height. AH women must be tall
and those who are absolutely short
are indulging in every imaginable de
vice of dress to make themselves tal
ler. But "long" is the better word,
for a woman must look sinewy, almost
snake-like in her outline.
Her skirt must be very tight around
her hips and tighter still around her
knees, and, below the knees, it must
fall In lines that sweep the feet and
sweep the floor and sweep the ground
far behind her. That is briefly the Idea
which the appearance of the woman
must give the long sweeping length.
They are trying to ruffle skirts and
women who dress in the extreme mode
have a few of these ruffled skirts and
wear them now and then, but they do
not put them on as a rule, for the
Impression of shortness Is always con
veyed by the skirt, which is trimmed
round and round, and you cannot get
away from It.
The semi-skirt is rather shortening
In its effect unless it be worn In the
Langtry manner. The Langtry semi
skirt is a fad of the London season. ,
First there Is an under skirt which
Is very long and very much trimmed
and very fluffy around the feet; then
there comes the semi-skirt or over
skirt, which is just as long as the
underskirt. After it Is put on it Is

looped or draped and the lower half
of it Is laid in folds around the knees
and caught at the back with a hand
some pin. This is an absolutely new
fashion and one which may "catch on,"
to use a popular phrase, or not, just
as feminine eyes see It.
If you want to make such a semi
skirt, put on your best petticoat one
that is beautifully frilled and which
looks exactly like a dress skirt. Over
this put on your dress. Now loop your
skirt by lifting it up and pinning It
in the back. Arrange It in such a
manner that the front lies In place
across the knees and the back hangs
in loops. If you experiment with it
in front of a cheval glass you will get
The semi-skirt and, indeed, all sum
mer skirts, call for a sash.
The sweep skirt is so deservedly
popular that there is little chance that
it will disappear this fall. "Women
will go in carriages and those who do
not travel In this fashion will hold up
the skirt with both hands. For the
street pale cloth costumes wlU be worn
and blue will lead.
The Sartoris girls, who are such
beauties, and who claim so much at
tention from the fact that Buitors are
ever after them, dress charmingly this
summer in the pastel colors. They
wear very pale blues, those that are
called light duck's egg, pale turquoise,
faded ultramarine and visionary blue.
And, by the way, visionary blue Is the
latest thing. It is something like cloud
blue and a very little like oyster gray.
It is a clear cloudy color.
At Newport they are doing a clever
thing; they are remodeling all the
early gowns of the season to fit the
last month of summer, when fashions
change. They change not so much in
the skirt and waist as in the neck and
sleeves. At this moment all the sleeves
are big between the elbow and the
wrist and they are big In a new way.
The balloon Is fashionable and so is
the mandolin, which is slashed at the
back with the end pulled out in some
fashion. Another sleeve that Is smart
is the Robespierre, which has a cuff
turned straight back above the elbow
and setting out in very brusque fash
ion, as though it were a piece of armor.
But the latest sleeve, the sleeve
which they call the Newport sleeve. Is
one which is shaped exactly like a
watermelon. In certain poses it looks
like an egg, for it is pointed at one
end. This sleeve begins at the elbow
and ends at the wrist
The small part is at the elbow and
the big part is at the wrist. It is made
out of a melon-shaped piece of silk,
which is gathered at the elbow and
fastened on to an elbow sleeve. At
the wrist it is laid in little side pleats
and fastened to a deep cuff of lace.
