"THE
MARGATE"
THE always attractive outdoor
type of English woman was
my thought for "The Margate."
She is the woman who loves to
be in the open, who stands on her
own well-shod feet, is a good
comrade and an all-around com-
panion. Perhaps, too, I had a
wee bit of a thought for the sol-
dier boys while I was at work on
this, for it is a true khaki color
and almost inspired me to wish
for brass buttons. -The skirt of
the coat has a comfortable full-
ness held in by a swagger little
belt. The collar is severely man-
nish, and the luxury of four real
pockets makes one feel quite a
mannish independence. Two
novel side panels give sufficient
fullness to the skirt. The blouse,
"Louise," is my great delight.

Made of striped silk with organdy
collar and cuffs, it exactly matches
the coat lining and makes a very
harmonious picture. The little,
cream-colored and black mush-
room hat is a true "Britisher"
and presents a most soldierly ap-
pearance. With apologies to the
distinguished explorer, I have
called it "The Livingston." It is
faced with black satin as a
shadowy frame for the face. This
is a costume with which I am
most deeply gratified, and it may
quite properly be worn by all
ages and all types of women,
whether slender or stout.
Though I have designed it in my
favorite khaki color, it will do
beautifully made up in navv blue,
black, brown or gray.
