Time Has Worked Many Remarkable
Changes in Dress Take the Present Day Styles for Example
Americans in Paris during the month of August expected radical changes in style. When at
last the great creators of fashion held their openings, few indeed were the surprises for the
American trade. Again the same clinging gowns were shown with the exception that the skirts
were made a trifle wider.
The same dominant feature of the Orient will prevail in colors and trimmings. Cashmere and
Indian combinations will again rule in the land of fashion.
We are now exhibiting dressy and semi-dressy and tailored one-piece dresses which are at pres
ent the most important feature in women's apparel.
Shadow Stripe Velvet Gown
One particularly smart gown now on display is fashioned of shadow stripe black and white
velvet. It is a Callot model. Opening to the bottom of the skirt over black satin duchess. Trim
ming of chenille ball fringe extending from the waist and outlining the entire overskirt This
trimming is also used on the waist bordering the surplice, which crosses over a black satin duch
ess vesand is held in place with a corsage of roses. The sleeves are made in the peasant style.
Another striking dress is shown in black and white stripe velvet, with wide panels of black
satin duchess. Trimmed with white satin revers veiled in chiffon with a duchess lace yoke. Loops
and buttons of velvet form the principal ornamentation.
Gown of Midnight Blue Velvet
One particularly noticeable gown of midnight blue velvet is very simple, the skirt being made
with a deep border around the bottom, held in place with a velvet cord. The only trimming on
the waist consists of a deep fichu effect of white chiffon, edged with heavy Irish lace. The sleeves
are short, with an under cuff of point de sprit and chiffon. Has a little yoke of real lace.
Silk Serge Afternoon Gowt
Another afternoon frock is of the new silk serge, fringe trimmed. This gown is in a rich
shade of dark blue with buttons embroidered in white threads. The waist has a wide side frill
of dainty net lace, with low lace yoke.
Smart Serge Dresses
A little serge dress is very smart, with the sid ; slashed effect on the skirt finished with buttons
and braid. The under sleeve and yoke and collar are of duchess lace. The waist has a touch of
Suits and Coats Fit for Royalty
A demi-toilette suit of imported chiffon broadcloth is very smart. The skirt is perfectly plain,
the coat being at least 30 inches long, with the sleeves almost full length. This coat is made
in the high waisted style, with - a seam running from under the arm around the front. The large
shawl collar, half of velvet and half of cloth, is finished with a silk fringe, fastening in the front
with a single large silk button.
This same model is also developed in velvet
Dress Fabrics From Across the Waters
Due to the interest centered in England this season, English tweeds
will be much in evidence. Mixtures of gray and green, heather violet,
brown and green are very smart These mixtures we are showing at
$1.35 and $2.50 a yard. Leather buttons harmonizing in color look
very smart with these mixtures, or the large buttons made of, horn.
Serges, fancy and plain, are extensively shown. The reversible fab
rics are very much used. For instance, a black and white purple
diagonal with plain state purple and black plaid on the other. side.
Double faced serges in black and green, brown and black, state purple
and black, blue and black. Black and white stripe velour at $3.00 a
yard is very beautiful. Polo cloth in reversible effects will continue
more popular for wraps.
These reversible materials are having quite a vogue this season for
all kinds of wraps, one and three-piece suits and- tailored dresses.
Aside from their beauty of appearance, they make their own trim
ming, and it is really a matter of economy to invest in at least one
suit of this material
Eastern Influences Affect Both Colors and
For the past two or three seasons trimmings of all kinds have
shown the Oriental colors and effects, and this season they are follow
ing more closely than ever the lines, colors and designs typical of
Bands, both narrow and wide, of large mesh filet nets, elaborately
embroidered in bright colored worsteds or yarns in the East Indian
and cashmere colors. Dull shades intermingling with bright tones
that form the most delightful color schemes that have ever been repro
duced for trimmings.
The bead trimming is also a study in East Indian colorings that
promises to be a favorite.
Passementeries and garnitures, both large and small, to match the
band trimmings, are works of art.
Another old-fashioned trimming that has been revived is chenille.
Used both as fringe and in designs on nets and chiffons.
There is so much that is new that it is impossible to cover the entire
situation. There are trimmings of every description to tempt you,.
Cord and tassels of chenille and silk, cord girdles in every shade
and all sizes. j
