Not the least fascinating of these Is
a purely French confection (and never
was the term more fittingly employed)
made of silks, fine linens and laces, and
In style a cross between a stunning
neglige and an exquisite house gown.
It is, however, neither exactly one
nor the other, but is made In two
pieces a skirt and a waist, the latter
slightly opened at the throat.
One of the very daintiest models at
Eugenie's, in West Forty-second
street. Is of delicate pink silk and nar
row white Valenciennes lace. The skirt
has the silk for a foundation, and is
much the shape of an elaborate petti
coat, fitted about the hips, and with
a superb flounce flaring from bf.low the
This flounce is made of a dozen or
more rows of finely patterned lace, al
ternating with tiny strips of tucked
Persian lawn and finished with a wide
lace edging. Ifr is attached to the skirt
proper by means of fine embroidery
This Is sometimes used also to al
ternate with the lace In forming the
flounce, with excellent effect.
The silk foundation has a pinked foot
The bodice is the prettiest Idea con
ceivable. It is entirely of narrow lace, joined
rcrpendlcularly by means of fine hem
stitching. It blouses a little In front
and has some slight fullness at the
belt in the back. It is belted In by
means of inch-wide ribbon which
parses through embroidery beading.
A three-Inch frill, lace edged, falls
below the belt line and gives It a de
cidedly chic finish.
The collar is a perfectly fitted sail

well to the shoulder, and pointed In

The latter extend a little below the
elbow, and are neither tight nor loose
just comfortable, and very pretty.
The entire waist, you see. Is of lace,
and you can Imagine how charming it
is over the pink silk slip of a lining
which matches the skirt and serves to
bring out the pattern. Or course, one
must have slippers to match.
With this plnk-and-white affair were
the daintiest French-heeled pink slip

white velvet and the bow over the In
step was of white velvet lined with

blue satin, alternating with the white
The skirt showed even more work
than the pink, being of soft white sat
in with groups of pinch tucks travers
ing it from top to bottom, with a deep
accordion-plaited flounce underneath
the outside one of lace and ribbon.
The workmanship of these outside
flounces which, in many Instances, can
be removed to be laundered Is perfec
tion, with not a stitch visible in the
joining of lace and ribbon.
Eugenie, who Is responsible for this
innovation, certainly knows her art.
The T)dice of this blue-and-white
model is cut much like the other, and
mr.y be worn over 'either a blue or
white slip. The slippers to match are
of white velvet or satin. Both are
shown with blue heels and ornamented
with blue bows, white lined.
A pure white model, with a flounce
of lace, embroidery, beading and tucks
running perpendicularly and with a
wide flare, is very effective.

Ktng Alfonso of Spain has impressed a desire to visit the United
States and, considering his imperious and not-to-be denied disposition,
there is considerable likelihood of his gratifying his desire. His minis
ters are now said to be earnestly considering the possibilities of such a
visit. It is believed by them that a step of this nature would do much to
renew the good relations of the two countries.

At Eugenie's I also saw the newest

the French idea), whereas last year

Street toilettes of the shirt waist or

well known that Eugenie Is the pioneer
of this graceful fashion. Although oth

A novel Idea Is to have several silken
linings of various colors with each
handsome gown. A black crepe de
chine, for example, made for a young
bride, included petticoats of black,
green, red and pale blue.
Little collar and cuff sets in silk, and
artistically embroidered, go with each
-lining and make an effective finish.
The bodice showed clover and leaves
In silk embroidery.
A new Idea In tucking, this season, Is
the combination of sizes. For Instance,
this black skirt showed pin tucks about
an inch apart in the skirt, while .the
flounce had very wide tucks about the
top and bottom. "
It Is a very pretty idea, and was
lovely in a black chiffon skirt, made up
with black thread-lace yoke and panels
oer white taffeta.
The bodice of this decollete costume
showed only the large tucks, both In
sleeve and front.
The shirt-waist suits adapt them
selves beautifully to evening toilettes.
In fact, low-cut gowns show the
fashion at its best, and set off the lines
of the figure admirably. No other style
exhibits the contour of the waist, bust
and hips to such advantage. Lady
