"WHEN YOU COME HOME"
THIS friendly little model carries a note
- of happy welcome which makes it a
pleasant picture to the home-coming ones.
It is very homey and sweet, and should be
worn only by slim girl-figures on the
threshold of life.
It may be made of silk tulle or of fluffy, soft
flowered silk-and-cotton marquisette in deli-
cate tints of blue or pink, or mauve. A girdle
of satin outlines the waist and smart little
bows cover the line where it closes in the
back. Cuffs of satin finish the graceful,
medium short sleeves.   The double frill

draped about the skirt is edged with narrow
satin ribbon and caught up with a ribbon
bow and long ends. The front of the
bodice is gathered into the girdle with soft
folds and ornamented with a bouquet of
tiny French flowers. The underbodice is
lace-trimmed      and    run   with   flesh-colored
ribbons. A lace-covered satin collar of un-
usual design leaves the lovely outline of the
throat exposed all around. "Youth" is the
motif of this lovely model, and it is really a
perfect illustration of what budding young
womanhood should wear.
