A SMART AND USEFUL TUNIC. Now that we are well into June it is high time to consider the question of holiday attire for the younger members of the family, unless we want to have a rush of work just, before the holiday actually begins. Our artist has pictured for us this week a smart little tunic suit, which, I think, most mothers will agree, is just the thing for hot weather wear in town, country, or by the sea. This little tunic is of the simplest possible type, and would require but the mini- mum of making, whilst it is exceedingly pretty and childish in effect. The tunic fastens well to the left. side. and is quite plain, and rather loose in fit, its only decoration being- a line of machine-stitching down the edge of the fastening, and a similar line of machining out- lining the hem. At the long waist line the little garment is held, in by a plain stitched belt of the material, which fastens in front with a button and button-hole. The sleeves are simple—not very big, the fulness being taken into a succession of little stitched tudsks at the wrist. From the neck turns back a big sailor collar decorated wit a line of machining, and finished with a smart silk tie in front. Ben (a tli are worn a pair of plain little knickers, which may be dispensed with if liked. The original tunic was carried out in rather coarsely-woven linen, of a lovely tone • of amethyst, with a. white linen collar and vest, and a knot of purple silk in front; but the same idea would look very well realised in brown. CONCERNING.BATIIING-GOWNS. It. seems a little early to talk about -bathing'- gowns when we are only just into June, but nowadays many people are beginning to take their holiday earlier in the summer, if they can possibly manage it; for in August holiday places have become so crowded and expensive that they are impossible for those who have only a small income. Bathing-gowns this year are more elaborate than they have ever been, such materials as silk, and even satin, being employed by some extravagant women. For the average woman, however, alpaca, bed-ticking, serge, bunt- ing, and galatea are the most sensible and practical materials, as they wear excellently, and are not expensive. All the best bathing-suits are made with a combination under-garment and a little full top-skirt, which is sewn to the belt and fastens by long stockings in exactly the same shade as the costume, or by sandals which match the trimming in colour. Those last mentioned items are made with immensely long straps of braid or ribbon. attached, which are cross- gartered round the leg right up to the knee, gartered round the leg right up to the knee, and there finished with a smart bow or a bunch of pendant tassels with if. Sandals which lace with cross-gartering right up to the knee on Stockings to match the bathing-gown are rapidly becoming universal, and they are certainly much nicer and more modest than the expanse of bare leg to which we have hitherto been accustomed, THE VOGUE FOR SWEET PEAS. Many of the new^hats shown in fashionable West End houses just now are, in effect at least, simply one mass of Sweet Peas, these pretty {SMART LITTLE TUNIC SUIT OF LINEN FOB SUMMER WEAR. |
