Clothe,s-Children-Cookery. I U=i> HOME DRESSMAKING. I I A SIMPLE BUT CHARMING EVENING I FROCK, t I have arranged this week for a sketch of a very smart but simple dance frock; but before beginning to tell vou how the dresa is made, let me describe to you the actual frock from which the sketch was made. It 'may give you some ideas when you begin to ..Ie your own dress The origin:? of the sketch was carried out in pale sunlight- yellow satin beaute, the skirt and over- bodice alone being made of the satin. The under-bodiM, with it" short Magyar beeves. was made of Georgette in a still pa.ler shade of the yeHow, whi)st the tunic. or pannier aides, which give the fashionable suggestion J < iz tj !< b V, cn 4 o Q )J <<j .4 < 9 K ic cD <n y tJ 14 <a a m > -< M dt of width, about the hips, were also made of the Georgette. Under corsage acd tunic sidee, were alike trimmed with love'y shimmering embroi- deries worked in pail- lettes, bead: and tiny artificial jewels -jn tones of pa!e rose, mauve, jade green, and faint blue. inter- mingled with gold and sHver, and w;th various metallic threads. THE MATERIAL. The Hr&t question in making the frock i s that of materiai. This design would look well carried out in sattin, charmeuae, taf. fetas, brocade, crepe d e Chine, eoJienae, crepe meteor, velvet, or Liberty satin, whilst the sleeves. under corsage and tunic sides might be worked out in tulle, Georgette, n i n o n chiffon, lace or net. For design you will need 3 yards of 38in. wide material; 2t yards of 40in.wide materia-1 for the un- derbodice and tunic; and I yard of 36in. wtde stuff for a Imjng bodice. ihig uning, by the way, is nicest made of wide net. THE PATTERN.âThere are four pattern pieces in the skirt and bodice part of this pattern, and four in the vest, sieves, and tunic, all of which are quite eaBY to cut. Before cutting out, however, lay the pattern against you, and make any little alterations that may be necessary. It is easier and more satisfactory to do thia 'n. the pattern than in the cut-out garment. Remember that no turnings are allowed for in the pat- tern, therefore you should leave about -in. on all seam edges, and ample material wher- ever a hem has to be turned up. THE CUTTING OuT.âBegin with the frock itself. Fold the material so that the sel- vedges come together, and lay the pattern upon it, as showu in the diagram, arranging that the straight edge-t of the bodice front, skirt back, and skirt front come to the fold of the material. Now fold the tunic material in the same way, and lay the pat- tern pieces upon it, as in the diagram, and arranging that the inner edge of each tunic comes to the fold of the etuS. Then cut out the lining/using the bodice pattern, but cutting out a dart at each side where the dotted lines come. THE MAKING.âBegin with the lining. Joia together the under-arm and shoulder seams, overcast a.nd press them. Face up the right side of the back opening with a nat facing, and put a wrap facing on the left side. Sew on .Dreas studs or hooks and eyea as fasteu- [Refer to H. D. 318.] ings. Now go on with the skirt. Stitch the side seame, press them well, and overcast the edges very neatly. Now cut down the middle of the back to & depth of about 9in. to form the placket. Face the right side of this placket opening with a flat facing, and put a wrap facing on the left side. Sew on hooks and eyes or pres&-stude,, to correspond with the f&stenings of the bodice lining. Now pin the top of the skirt over the edge of the lining,bodice. slip them on ma.ke any I HOV TO OBTAIM ./1 Paper Pattern of the above FROCK.

Remember that the top of the skirt must be left Sin. above the tine of the waist. Now turn up the bottom of each tunic on to the right side. nrst making sure that the bottom of each tunic is absolutely straight, and sew on the trimming in such a way as to cover the turned-up edge. Gather the top of each tunic, pin the top of the skirt, try on, correct, and sew. Now cut in net or chiffon at lining for the vest. and similar Mnings for the Magyar sleeves. Line the vest with the chiffon, turn over the top edge of the right side, and put on the trimming, in the ga-mo way as on the tumc. Mark the centre of the lining bodice, pin the vest into place, and sew down each side. Tack the Magyar sleeves over the linings, and then tack up the under-arm and sleeve seams. Gather the waist. Sli;p these Magyar pieces over the bodice lining, pin the waist edges together, and try on, making any altera- tions necessary. Sew the Magyar seams, turn in the raw edges to meet. and run together along the edges. Turn up the sleeve edges on to the right side, and put on the trimming. Slip these Magyar pieces over the lining again, turn in the front and back edges, and catch down here and there to the lining. Ma.kp the waist gathers nrm. Hem the lower edge of the skirt. Tack up shoulder and side seams and fit the bodice. Stitch and press the seams. Face up the back edges of the bodice with a flat facing on the right side and a wrap facing on the left, and fasten with press-atudg or hooks and eyes. Turn in the edges of neck, arm- holes, and waist, and face with narrow, crossway bands of the stuff. Slip the bodice over the lining, and slip-stitch the neck over lining and vest. Slip stitch the tower edge over the top of the skirt.
