The Vogue of the Jacket

The Vogue of the Jacket.

Have you noticed that nearly all the Spring frocks this year are billowy fluffy affairs, with a little jacket or coatee to match? Even the masculine girl won't be able to resist the charm of these page 54 “creations”—never before have frocks been so lovely nor fabrics so numerous and cheap. Flowers are to be worn by everyone—frills, flounces, and large hats. The other day I imagined I had drifted back at least a century, when I wandered into an afternoon tea party. The only difference was that modern fashions don't demand an extraordinary and quite unlovely outline. We can now be comfortable and yet graceful, and trust to sports and health to keep our figures as Nature intended them to be.

This little frock can be made up from georgette. voile, ninon, or any one of the hundreds of species of crepes displayed everywhere.

Waistlines are to be high and frocks long. This does not apply to our sports rig-outs—but certainly to this type of dainty afternoon frock. Notice the three frills on the skirt and the little belt—also the short straight little coat. The edges of the frills look very dainty when picoted and a flower on the shoulder gives a smart finish. This frock may be worn with a large straw hat and also a light felt.
