-.r IT f eet. The stair exercise is no good unless this important rule is strictly observed, and then it is better, for the sake of the stair carpets, to choose other people's stairs for practice. Londoners, at any rate, never need be at a loss in this respect, and the tube railways which offer ■splendid facilities for stair-'climbirig—if the lifts are not made use of—might ad- vertise these as an additional advantage of their routes. b DYED AND PRINTED TUSSORE. It is not very long since tussore was obtainable only in its natural shade. Then came the dyed varieties, which tho-ugh. often pretty seemed a little wrong some- how, and now we are offered printed tussores which are perhaps less desirable still. The favourite background is a soft leaf-green, the patterns being old-world, such as the new delaines are shewing. The fact remains, however, that the best dressed women prefer tussore in its natural shade, and refuse to be tempted with these dyed and printed varieties. GREEN "UNLUCKY." The superstition attached to the wear- ing of this color at weddings has passed away, and nowadays we don green as free- ly as any other color for these particular ceremonies. The different slfides of parsley, ivy, and watercress green may be said to lead, and the wonderful manner in which all blend strikes even the casual observer. Last year, blue was in high favour for wedding apparel, and the way in which the many hues "screamed" at each other was frequently noticeable, more especially so at the Royal wedding at Wood Norton. THE LONG .SLEEVE* No doubt throughout the summer the elbow sleeve will find a place on the ready made blouse, but the well-dressed have already passed the notion by. The day sleeve of the moment has very little ful- ness at the top, and it moulds the arm right down to the wrist, where: it curves out gently, thus forming a ,cup-like frame for the knuckles. In thin fabrics this sleeve is gathered or "folded," the some- what narrow folds falling one over the other from shoulder to wrist. VIOLENT EXTREIMIEIS. As as only to be expected, we have rushed from the no-collar scheme to the high wired band, and even this arrange- ment is not satisfying to leading modistes, who are edging their very high and closely wired collars with inch-wide frills. To the few these frills suit, they prove eminently becoming, but alas, only the very few can wear them successfully. The majority of us possess necks neither long or slender enough for the mode, when the effect is dowdy and frumpish in the extreme.
