Gage expressed in a letter, that “It will
be wise for the sound money forces to
hold themselves iu line to oppose any

GINQHAM COSTUME WITH SIMULATED OVERDRESS PROM HARPER'S BAZAR
A model, designed especially for use iu wash garments, represents a
gingham costume with gored over dress aud attached skirt The latter ex-
tends under t e over dress about three aud one half inches, where it is
stitched into position. The over dress is faced with a fitted facing, a pat-
tern of which accompanies the sostnme pattern. The skirt is circular, but
has slight fulness iu the back. The waist is tricked vertically down the back
in groups of narrowest tucks, aud similar tucks extend on either side of the
front to within a few inches of the center, where the bodice ends iu two long
revers. The yoke is of tucked white duck, which also faces the sleeves at
the wrist and forms the shaped cuff which droops over the hand. The bolt
is of gingham, shaped and interlined with linen, and stitched on either side,
The upper sleeves are diagonally tucked, marked indications for the tucks
appearing in the sleeve pattern. The original model from which the design
is taken was made for Harper's Bazar, and may be effectively treated in
chambray, zephyr, or any of the checked linens. Great care should be exer-
cised in matching the stripes in such materials, especially when bias effects
are sought after.
To make this garment for a person of medium size, 12 yards of gftigham
24 inches wide, well be required, and a half yard of white duck.
