A cord and “boblets” are easy. If you know someone who is clever at threading beads in flat strips, have her thread some for you in shades to suit your frock—half an inch wide and up to thirty inches long, according to how long you want the dangling ends in front to be.

I saw one frock with a choker of bone rings. Of imitation tortoise-shell, they were joined with windings of wool to match the dress. Ordinary white rings can be crocheted over in any colour required. Remember that the more wool you wind in joining your rings, the more effective will be your choker.
