For the Ladies. I A Kimono Nightdress. This week I am devoting my atten- tion to night wear, and two designs are illustrated, which, should suit both youthful and middle-aged wearers, as well as stout and slender figures. The first sketch depicts a nightdress of the slip-on type which is now so popular, and whose only fastenings are a strip 01 ribbon threaded through eyelet-holes so it would be as well to get a good rtiatc-i-ial whilst you are about it, as the decoration costs so little. For this design viyella works out into a light and warm night garment-, whilst for those who find the cost of this mate- rial—now from 5s. 3d. to 5s. 6d. per yard-somewhat beyond their means, there are wincctte, 'and other varieties of the cotton and wool fabric, popularly known as wincey, as well as our old friend flannelette, which is now the price of the flannel of pre-war days. The trim- ming of the nightdress skekhed con- .I-iSi,?g of festooning worked in silk or  mercerised thread, and this adds but a few pence to the cost of the garment, as this looks so much more decorative than an ordinary seam, which can bo in- dulged in if you have no tune to carry out the other suggestions, though if you are embroidering it, as in the sketch, it is hardly worth while, as they say, "spoiling the ship for a ha'porth of tar." A VERY HOMELY NIGHTDRESS. I In this sketch we have a model ot the real, comfortable^ old-fashioned type to which so many ot my rezvlersstilf cling, especially those of the older generation, and of a generous build of figure. The yoke is a very deep, square one, one is double, so is very warm over the shoulders, an important detail in these days when warm nightwear is so neces- sary. The lower portion is cut on loose, ample lines,.so is very comfortable for stout figures. Flannel, flannelette, wincey, and win- oette are all suitable for the realisation of the pattern, the only trimming con- sisting, of narrow embroidery or coarse lace as a neck and cutf finish.
