larity of printed materials. Printed
dresses, writes Henri Creange from
Paris, predominate at the races,
and are worn with long coats or
wraps of the same material, or if
plain color, lined with the same
material as the dress. These
coo. la are straight, lapped way over,
and without buttons. They are
developed in crepe, Dalpaca, and
Drapaa, two new alpaca weaves,
or even ra printed cretonne. When
they are made of a plain material
they are most often black .or
some shade of brown. The frock
pictured, of figured crepe de chine
in a Persian panel design ot
Cheney inspiration is supplemented
by a long coat ot Crepe Cantones

terned fabric as that of the frock.
The design Is In black on a b-l?e
background a fashionable color
combination, and the coat Is black.
The dress shows two flounces
giving the required fullness In

Is quite plain. Such "a costume
lends Itself to innumerable uses,
