I WEEKLY F1SIIII LETTER.
New York, April 13. The luxury
in which the well-dressed woman In
dulses nowadays does not expend it
self in street toilettes. The art and
time devoted to house gowns meas
uro them up to the standard of things
It goes without saying that the soft
clinging fabrics are selected for these
gowns, but this year they are treat
ed to an elaboration never bciorc
equalled In beauty or effect.
There Is an endless variety of de
signs, but It Is easy to detect a sug
gestlou of the Empire In all of the
The natural grace of Empire gowns
Is only one feature in their favor,
That they are comfortable is proved
by the ract tbat they uoiignt wo
heart of the radical dress reformer
as well as the butterfly of fashion.
A design that requires almost in
numerable yards of silk and lace is
made of lightweight pongee trimmed
with Vallenclennes, dyed a beautiful
cornl shade. The sill; is cut In nar
row strips which are alternated with
lace insertions and formed Into an
accordion plaited skirt. The scant
bodice or rather yoke extends barely
to the bust-line and the jointure with
the skirt Is veiled boncath a drapery
of buscult-color chiffon. An unusual
feature of the gown Is the rather
high neck that is high for an Empire
effect, for only enough Is cut away to
show the outline of a swan-ltke throat.
If there Is one thing nbove another
that commends Itself to the woman

I FRAZER OPERA HOUSE
America's Foremost Classic Actor
nr fnnhlnn this season, it is the fact
that no docldod rule ic followed in the
modes. It 1b simply a matter of se
lecting the style and 'the color that
suit, but all or tho stylos are graceim
and dainty and all of the colors light,
so that whatever tho fancy may hit
unon is comme 11 faut. The girl who
does not like a decided Empire effect
finiQ n ripilirhtfiii modification in a
girdle which Is more of a twentieth
than an eighteenth century type. In
this effect, the depth is placed below
rather than above the waistline and
In this way unbecoming lines are noi
inflicted upon the weu-aresseu.
The nrovlnce of heavy laces has
been extended to house gowns and
the result Is that some striking de
slens are belne exhibited In ultra'
smart establishments. A creation In
mire white India mull seems too del
lcate for the thick, coarse lace mai
apparently weights It down. The
seams are covered with strips of the
lace and the mull cut from under
neath. Tho same Idea of the lace at
the top of tho hem. The gown foils
In graceful folds from a round gauged
yoke which is lent length by a bolero
of the lace threaded with narrow
white crepon ribbon.
The Bleeves are made In layers.
First there Is a loose Inner sleeve of
the mull ending obviously at the el
bow; above this Is a full puff of lace
over chiffon which grows narrower
as It reaches the top where there is
a final cap of white peau do cynge
appllqued with the dearest little lace
medallions and tiny sprays of forget
Never were collars and revers of
lace worn so much as now. This sea
son there Is. however, a new adap
tlon of the mode which shows long
stole ends at the front, falling al
most to tho hem of the skirt. These
collars are used to trim everything
from a house bodice to an opera wrap
and the greatest variety In laces Is
allowed. In fact, very much contro
versy rages round the subject of
colored lace. Grny braid lace looks
ell on a grey gown and blue woolen
ace on a serge gown of the same
shade, picked out In red Is oulte
novel In appearance. In some of the
smart shops handsome skirts and
bodices all cut and ready to be fit
ted can be obtained at a reasonable
sum. In tact, the trimming is al
ready designed upon the gown. This
is certainly a blessing to the home ar
tlst In these days when everything
requires the touch of a master hand
Next to the beautiful house gowns
that take the place of the Easter
Btyles that have been on exhibition
for the past few weeks, are the sum
mer gowns of linen and canvas fab
rics. These toilettes are labelled
"wash" gowns' hut this is the only
Intimation that one has of the fact
For instance, one model is made of
coarse canvas which looks for all the
world bb If it were made of white
and colored coarse crochet cotton in
terwoven. It is lined with natural
color glace. There is just a fine
threading of black introduced with
a coarser welt of woof.
The new wash gowns are prettiest
In the stone tints, red, putty and
champagne, because they blend most
harmoniously with the variagated
The alarm that was evidenced at
the combination of linens and chiffon
at the beginning of the season has
quieted down into steady admiration.
The combination does seem Incongru
ous, but ite beauty excuses every
other disadvantage. A simple cos
tume of white linen has the skirt
trimmed from belt to hem with wide
insertion of lace through which
white taffeta drop skirt gleams.
The bodice has a band of the lace
running around the figure just above
the girdle. Above the bloused front
there in a yoke of lacu with the most
loosely woven placed threaded with
chiffon. Below the yoke there is a
ruffle of chiffon laid in two wide
hemstitched tucks and embroidered
with linen threaded in little fleur de
lys. The cleeves have caps and un
dercuffs of lace, with wristbands of
Hip-yokes continue to be one of the
most popular forms of skirt trimming,
but the question of finishing the
edges with becoming emphasis is a
question that puzzles the best of
them. Scollops ore thp. simplest to
lutlon of the problem requiring as
they do lees geometrical precision
than the Greek key and battlement
methods, but because they are easy
to' gain, the commonality adopts them
thereby robbing the skirt of its originality.
Craze for Buttons.
The craze for buttons increases.
and they are as fashionable upon
wash dresses as upon more expensive
toilettes. For the linen fabrics there
are carved pearl, crochetted and linen
buttons of all sizes and designs;
voiles, etamines and the like are or
namented with anything from a moth-
er-of-yearl to a genuine diamond but-.
For summer shirt waists there come
very pretty button sets that are fast
ened upon braids and can be casllv
changed from one waist to another.
