Misses’ Middy Dress
The middy blouse has held its own successfully through many seasons, and this model, No. 6318, shows it brought up to date. The blouse fits neatly at the shoulders, and is loose at the waist. It ends in a band at the hops. There is, of course, no opening except the small V at the neck, and here there is a small shield that is removable. A sailor-collar finishes the neck, and band cuffs complete the sleeves.
The three-gore skirt has a panel front, and the closing is placed at one side of this.
Linen, duck and pique are the materials most often used for these suits, but cotton Bedford cord is also seen, and ratine, poplin and serge. There is no reason why wash-silk should not also be pressed into service, as the style is distinctly a tub one.
The dress-pattern, No. 6318, is cut in sizes for 14, 16 and 18 years. To make the dress in the medium size will require 5 1/8 yards of 36-inch material, with 5/8 of a yard of 27-inch contrasting goods. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
The coat-suit has made such a hit for little girls that this model, No. 6315, will be a welcome one. The blouse is a coat, cut on sacque-lines, and closing in the center of the front. The drop-shoulder is used, and the sleeves are three-quarter length. The neck is finished with a pretty turnover collar. With the coat there is worn a two-piece skirt, quite plain and scant. This may be of the same material as the coat, or it may differ in color and texture.
Linen, lawn, gingham, pique, voile, ratine, etc., are all used for these suits.
The dress-pattern, No. 6315, is cut in sizes for 6, 8, 10 and 12 years. To make the dress in the medium size will require 2 3/4 yards of 36-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Very little maids will look dainty and sweet in this pretty frock, No. 6395. It is made with the long body of the French style, so becoming to the little folk. The neck is cut square, and is outlined with a band of insertions. At each side, at the shoulders, there is a group of fine tucks, which are only a few inches in length, but which provide ample fulness for the blouse. The same arrangement is used in the back, and here the closing is placed in the center. There is a very short skirt in one piece, attached to the blouse beneath a belt.
White batiste, lawn, or cambric are all pretty for this frock, and the more delicate colors may also be used.
The dress-pattern, No. 6295, is cut in sizes for 2, 4 and 6 years. To make the dress in the medium size will require 1 7/8 yards of 36-inch material. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
A variation of the popular coat-suits for little girls is shown in this illustration, No. 6311. The outer blouse is a coat, and this closes at the left side of the front. The neck is finished with a small collar, and there is a leather belt at the waist. Under this coat there is a four-gore skirt. This is attached to a sleeveless underwaist, and opens in the center of the back.
These suits are made of poplin, linen, pique, ratine, gingham, cambric, and the like.
The dress-pattern, No. 6311, is cut in sizes for 6, 8, 10 and 12 years. To make the dress in the medium size will require 3 1/4 yards of 36-inch material for the dress and 1/2 yard of 36-inch lining for the underwaist. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
Child’s One-Piece Dress
This little frock, No. 6301, is one of the comfortable models, which are made in one piece, with a single seam running along the under side of the sleeve and down the underarm portion of the dress. The neck is low, and the sleeves are short. To complete the dress there are bloomers, and these are attached to an underwaist.
No dress could be better for play-time than this one, which does away with all need of underclothing of easily soiled white. Good gingham, percale, chambray and similar fabrics are the most appropriate.
The dress-pattern, No. 6301, is cut in sizes for 2, 4, 6 and 8 years. To make the dress in the medium size will require 3 yards of 27- or 36-inch material for dress and bloomers, and 3/8 of a yard of 36-inch material for lining. Price of pattern, 10 cents.
