The collar is draped in puritan fash- ion. It fastens on the right side with three little buttons and is with a scalloped edge. Long sleeves, with cuffs appliquéd in scalloped outline, feature the new bell,-shape. The skirt receives its graeeful- fulness from an extra circular section, inserted at the hipline in a curved seam. The vogue for white is so strong in thesouth that it promises to carry on all summer, no white crépe is suggested for this froek. Buckle and buttons—red, Excella Pattern No. 3387.
