THE MIDDLE AGES 
this in the skirt, let the trousers and sleeves hang loose, cut it below
the waist line so that the lower part may be raised part way beneath 
the upper part, and there is the Chinese raiment. With each back- 
ward step, simplify the garment, and you soon come to the straight 
piece of cloth used by the Egyptians. Starting forward from the 
oriental style, you come to an entirely new style with its many 
variations, the fitted garment. 
                         LESSON VII. 
          Make a sheet of sketches showing one Oriental Costume 
          and three or more Oriental designs. Color at least three 
          designs. 
          Notice the wonderful geometric construction in the 
          Saracenic designs. 
          Make an original design for a lounging robe, using ideas 
          suggested by oriental costumes. 
          Make an all-over stencil, batik or block print pattern 
          suitable for such a garment. (A) 
          Make a Kimono or Oriental Costume out of paper or cloth. 
          Stencil the design. (C) 
          Arrange, on a sheet, bits of modern trimmings, cloth or 
          prints of costumes and oriental rugs which resemble the 
          Oriental designs of the middle ages.
