The most fashionable blouses are made to \ overhang tho waistbelk, with a double pleat down the front. This style adapts itself to the display of pretty studs and ornaments. To the slim girl, whose waist is of dainty j proportions, this blouse will be found cmi- | nently becoming. Pretty velveteen blouses are made in checks, and do not require j trimming, although a ribbon neckband and waistbelt make pleasing additions, if of a contrasting colour. I saw an evening blouse lately which was wonderfully novel and pretty. It was made of brown and white blonde lace, drawn fully over a rose-pink silk lining, cut round at the bust. The lace -was gathered up to the neck, so thai the opening was partially concealed, and a broad band of brown satin ribbon formed a collarette, on which were sewn smalll pink roses. Speaking of evening blouses, a mother and a daughter wore pretty ones'at a smart soiree this Christmas time. The] elder lady's was made of black and white striped glace silk, the stripes wide and cleaaly defined, and a touch of colour was given in a very striking manner by deep cuffs, high collar, aid waistbands of bright purple miroir velvet. Tliig blonse, worn over a black skirt, looked remarkably well. The young lady' 3 blouse was equally as affective, although it was simplicity itself, being of accordion-pleated white spotted muslin. Around the neck was worn one of the fashionable full white chiffon ruffles.
