In br heart of hearts yearn for
the loft silk and fine laces of
pretty negligees and the things thit
go w 1th them? No matter If she wears
a, high collar and plaid skirt, or a
checked gingham dress all day, she
longs, though she nia not admit It, to
snuggle down In the evening In some
thing soft and clinging. It revives her

quilted satin, which makes them snug
and practical. They are easy for the
borne sewer to fashion, too, Just a
matter of cutting a little kimono sack
with three-quarter or longer sleeves,
making It double, filling with a light
layer of cotton and then stitching on

are made of two shades of taffeta, such
as yellow Hned with coral. If you
want something especially frilly try
turquoise panne velvet, cut circular
and edged with frills of silk lace.
Warmer Garments Preferred.
As for the negligees themselves, their
same Is legion. Emphasis seems to lie,
however, on the warmer garments,
probably because the high price of coal
argues for cooler bouses this Winter.
They are sumptuous affair In draped
velvet, padded satin, or what might be
expected, duvetyn. The latter in such
shades as Jade, goblin blue and rust
makes very delightful lounging robes,
They are usually lined with chiffon of
contrasting shades, which makes
them horribly expensive affairs when
