DRESS OF THE DAY. PRETTY WASHING FROCK FOR A GIRL. The sudden and unexpected spell of hot weather has filled all the West End shop windows with the most fascinating display of washing materials, dainty blouses, and delightfully cool, fresh, washing frocks. The latter are particularly attractive ts year, their variety and cut being far superior to anything of the kind I ever remember before. Moreover, there are cotton gowns for every I figure and every age, from the grandmother of sixty to the toddling youngster of eighteen months. Some of the very prettiest models are specially designed for the school-girl, the maid of from fourteen to eighteen years. Our sketch shows a delightful little frock of this kind, which is quite ideal for warm weather wear in town, country, or by the sea. This frock is carried out in fine, pale blue zephyr of good quality, and has somewhat the effect of a princess dress. The upper part is cut PRETTY WASHING EROCK OP VAJ3& BLUE ZEPHYR, TRIMMED WITH STRIPED BLACK AND WHITE LINEN, out in a round at the neck, and edged with a strapping of striped black and white material. A short distance below this first strapping comes a second, arranged in exactly the same way. Th £ front of the dress is cut in pinafore style, thfe panel effect being right down the skirt to the hem. The edges of the "pinafore" are finished with a strap- ping of the striped material, which, of course, is also of a washable y¡" The re- mainder of the bodiee-, is very slightly full, and is taken into a neat little waistbelt? of the striped fabric: Inside t'he bodice comes a dainty little chemisette composed of bahds of narrow Valenciennes insertion sewn neatly together. The sleeves are oS-m mtich modified gigot type, being slightly full.ait'the shoulder, but fitting closely "below the elbow. Three or four wide- tueks- decorate the upper part of the sleeve, and three crossbands of the striped stuff the loWer. IThe skirt is ,Tg«red» and fits closely over the- Mps, hut has ample width at the bottom. L, A PRETTY BIi £ KUfpi. r Two op the most ^indispensable items in a summer outfit are a pretty muslin or lawn blouse ai}d a smart walking skirt to wear with it. Of tfws'* former,indeed, one" can hardly have too many, in reason, especially for holiday use, for a single damp evening at the seaside will reduce the crispest and freshest of muslin blouses to a limp rag, and if there are in one's ward- robe to replace it one is ErO.t_.ip..averyhappy position. Now, I am giving iyou this week a sketch of a dainty little muslin blouse de- signed on the newest and most approved lines. It is a. simple, excellent pattern, .arid presents no real difficulty =>ito „the home worker. It is carried out in fine, clear white muslin, trimmed -.vjth a-, little Valenciennes insertion and some broderie anglaise, and has a very smart and dressy effect. The upper part of the blouse consists of a round, shaped band of broderie anglaise or white; raised embroidery worked on iii-uf;lin-: to match the blouse, the band being caught down on each shoulder by a round motif Or M medallion of the same pretty. embroidery. A DAINTY AND BECOMING MUSLIN BLOUSE.. Now, this embroidered band or. Kttle round yoke, as it really is, may be cut from the material, stamped with some simple transfer pattern, and worked in ordinary white em- broidery cotton by anyone possessed of deft fingers. Or, that be out of the question,- it may be cut in piece broderie anglaise • or white embroidery, or it may be carried out in Irish crochet, real or imitation, or some other heavy guipure or lace. On to the lower edge of this band, both back arid front, the fulness of the blouse is set in a succession of tucks. These tucks run right down to the waist in the middle of the front, and are alternated by narrow bands of Valenciennes insertion, but at the sides they are released just above the line of the bust. Inside the embroidered band at the top of the blouse comes a dainty little chemisette of Valen- ciennes insertion. This blouse is in four sizes -32, 36,40, and 44 inches bust. Two and one-eighth yards of 42-inch material will be needed. MILLINERY NOTES. A great number of the smartest and most effective Qf the summer hard-wear hats are decorated with raffia trimmings of one kind or another- In some cases the crown of the hat is encircled by a wide band of the raffia, which is folded rcund it, exactly as a broad ribbon would be, and tied in a flat bow at one side. In others the raffia is worked up into an enormous rosette, which is placed on one side of the crown; whilst in the third type of hat the entire .shape, as well as the trimmings, is carried out in, raffia. A favourite mode of the moment is thg- hat of tightly stretched lace with its brim lined with coloured straw. The effect is exceed- ingly good, and the lace hat is thus rendered infiniteJy more becoming to its wearer. Many of these flew lace hats have jan interlining of dull aluminium tissue, which throws up the pattern and delicacy of the lace to perfec- tion. v-
