FASHION OF THE WEEK. A CHARMING BLOUSE. I [E. 280.] I One of the garments that is quite indis- pensable to the Christmas holiday maker is a really charming blouse that will serve eithjr as a very smart blouse for afternoon wear, or will take the place of a semi-even- ing dress for little bridge evenings, con- certs, or similar Christmas festivities. Now the first requisite in such a blouse is that it should match exactly the skirt with which it is to be worn, so that skirt and blouse %ive the effect of a complete dress. However pretty a blouse may be that contrasts in colour with the accompanying < £ =17 skirt the toilette has not the finished"~euec £ produced by a blouse and skirt that match in colour. Hence the first thing is to decide definitely upon the skirt with which the blouse is to be worn, and then to choose a material that matches it exactly in colour. All sorts of materials are use d for the smart blouses shown just now, such as satin, crepe de Chine, brocade, Georgette, satin beaute. charmeuse, Liberty satin, taffetas, and union, and these are embellished by trim- mings of beautiful embroidery, lace, fur, exquisite stitchery frills, or beads. The specially attractive example shown in our sketch was carried out in pale, mole- coloured Georgette. The blouse proper was absolutely plain and rather full. falling a little over the top of the waistband. In front, the blouse was arranged in crossover fashion, the fronts crossing a couple of inches or so above the waist and leaving a deep, pointed opening between them. The edges of the opening were finished by a band of most gorgeous galon or embroidery, worked chiefly in dull gold thread, but with touches of faint-rose, hlue. and green intro- duced here and there. A very finely pleated frill of the mole-coloured Georgette fell from the outer edge of this band. The blouse had very large armholes of a glorified type. which were set well in on to the shoulder, and were marked by lines of gold thread. The sleeves were cut in Magyar style in one with the sides of the blouse, which came outside the gold stitching. These sleeves, were transparent and rather loose, and at the wrists were set into bands of the galon, from which fell deep frills of the pleated Georgette. Inside the pointed open- ing in front of the blouse came a smart little waistcoat of ivory satin bound with dull gold and lightly ornamented with gold stitching. Paper patterns can be supplied, price Is. lyd. Enclose remittance and address to Miss Lisle, 8, La Belle Sauvage. London, E.C. 4. Note: The price may vary from week to week.
