I HOME DRESSMAKING. I A DAINTY LITTLE PETTICOAT. Many mothers, I know, will be obliged to take away with them upon their holiday a certain amount of sewing for the family, knowing that during the long mornings on the beach, when the constant interruptions of the children make reading impossible, they will have ample time to get various little garments ready for the coming autumn and winter. With a view to such opportunities for sewing, therefore, I am [Refer to H. D. 297.] giving you this week the pattern of a simple but most comfortable and attractive little petticoat that is suitable for girls of 2-10 years. This petticoat has a princess front and a waisted back and side. It is. there- fore, particularly well suited to the younger c:hild who so frequently has what one might call a tubby little figure in front. THE MATERIAL.âThe first question to de- cide is that of material. Well, this pattern will serve equally well for cotton or woollen fabrics, therefore, if you want to make a warm winter petticoat you will use flannel, cashmere, Aza, Vivella, flannelette, or some similar cosy material. But if you want to make a lighter petticoat the best materials to use are longcloth-for a very stout and substantial garment; fine Madapolam, cam- bric, nainsook, cotton crepe, haireord, taran- tulle, etc., for a daintier garment. You will need It yards of 36in. material for a child of about four years. THE PATTERN.âThere are only three pieces in this pattern-front, back, and bodice-so it is quite easy to cut out. Before cutting out, however, lay the pattern against your child, and make any little alterations that may be necessary. You will find this much easier and simpler to do in the pattern than in the cut-out garment. Remember that the pattern does not allow for any turnings, therefore you should allow for half-inch turnings on the seams; half-inch turning at the bottom; inch-wide turnings on the straight edge of the bodice, and about an eighth of an inch on the neck and arms. THE CUTTING OL-r.-Fold the material down the middle in such a way that the sel- vedges come together, and lay the pattern upon it, as shown in the diagram, laying the straight edge of the front to the fold of the material. THE MAKING.âRun the two-skirt pieces of the back together, up the centre, leaving a 6in. placket at thb top.. Fell the seam neatly and make a quarter of an inch on each side of the placket. Now join the sides SELVEDGtS °, 6. MATE f\ I AL of this skirt piece to the sides of the front, and fell the edges neatly by hand. Make a hem three-quarters of an inch wide on the straight edge of each back piece. Join the side seams of tho bodice to the side seams of the front, and fell. Join the shoulder seams of bodice and front in the same way. Now roll the edge of the neck very neatly, and whip the lace on to it. Whip the lace on to the edge of the armholes in the same HOW TO OBTAIN Paper Pattern of the above PETTICOAT.

I I way. ext gather the top of the skirt and stroke the gathers very neatly (in the case ¡ off very thin materials the gathers, of course, would not be stroked). Sew the stroked gathers to the bodice on the right side. Cut a little band of the material about an inch wide, tltTn in the raw edges at either side, and sew over, joining be- tween bodice and skirt. Make buttonholes in tho hem on the right side of the back, and sew buttons on to the left hem. Now run the three little tucks in the bottom of the petticoat. (You may omit these if you prefer to do so.) Make a tiny hem at the bottom of the petticoat, or roll the ed- and whip the lace on to it. You may put the lace on without anv fullness or you may gather it, as you prefer. If you like, you may trim the bottom of the garment with lace and insertion and omit the tucks. Or you may stamp a transfer scallop design round neck, armholes, and lower edge, and work them in embroidery cotton, afterward- cutting them out. This is a very practical and inexpensive way of trimming a hard- wear, everyday petticoat.
