A SMART AND USEFUL PETTICOAT. BRAID AGAIN.âQuite the latest and smartest trimming for underskirts is braid. In the case of elaborate silk petticoats the braid is usually also of silk, either plain, of varied intermixed shades, or woven with a tinsol thread of gold or silver. For everyday hard wear skirts, how- ever, the more substantial mohair braid is em- ployed, and a very charming and suitable trim- ming it makes. It appears to beet advantage, | perhaps, on petticoats of heavy alpaca or j moirette of some vivid or rather light shade. 1 For instance, I saw a delightfully smart and useful skirt a few days ago which was achieved in heavy strong mohair of a bright scarlet shade, and was entirely trimmed with black military braid of a rather coarse weave. The upper part of the skirt was as well and ac- curately fitted as a dress skirt, the gores being shaped in exactly the same way. From the level of the knees sprang a shaped frill, trimmed at intervals with bands of the wide black braid, tha joining between skirt and frill being also hidden beneath a band of the braid. The skirt was completed by a narrow frill set on to the deeper flounce, the small frill being bordered by black braid of a narrower width.
