HOME DRESSMAKING. I A SIMPLE LITTLE TUNIC' SUIT. I With a view to holiday needs, our pattern I this week consists of a thoroughly practical and snmrt -little tunio suit, which is so simple in shape that it can be run together at the last minutes, so to speak, if the small boy is found to be short of necessary gar- ments a few days before the holiday begins. [Refer to H. D. 244.] I The Material.âAs sketched, the tunio i;uit is carried out in striped washing ma- terial, and is intended for summer- wear only, but the same pattern will serve equally I well for wool, silk, or linen fabrics. The best washing materials 'to use for this suit are linen, casement cloth, gingham, holland, pique, and zephyr, whilst for warmer wear light-weight serge, gabardine, and woollen repp are suitable. Silk, velvet, or velveteen may also be used, if liked. This pattern will take one and three-quaiter yards of 40in. material, and three-quarters of a yard qf 2-iin. matk-riil for trimming, for a boy of about four years. THE P AERN .-The pattern consists of six pieces, Vjhich are plainly 'shown in the* accompanying diagram. It must be remem- bered that no turnings arc allowed for in the pattern. There is no pattern given for the belt, the trimming straps, or the cuffs, as they are simply straight pieces of material. THE Cutting OUT.-Fold the material sel- vedges together, and lay the pieces of the pattern on it, as shown in the diagram. The centre-back, of oourse, must be laid to the fold of the material. The. trimming bands TOLD I SILVEDGrS OF 40'MATFR1A1 e- of plain matefial should be cut on the cross, and "hould be about l?in. wi..
