Make That Blouse at Home
Popular Over-the-Skirt Garment Need Have No Terrors for the Woman Clever With Her Needle.
One might almost think that the original designer of the costume or over-the-skirt blouse had the home dressmaker and her limitations in mind as the inspiration for this very popular garment. There can be no denying that it is easier to make than the blouse that must be drawn in at the waistline and made to fit the figure. Practically all of the long blouses are straight in line, with only a girdle or belt to indicate the waistline if a fitted effect is desired, while equally as many are allowed to hang straight.
A smart and unusual straight smock blouse in hip length recently seen was made of heavy satin with a deep band at the bottom done in cross-stitch embroidery in contrasting color to simulate smocking. The sleeves were similarly finished.
The lovely fabrics that are obtainable this season and the very simple sales that have received the unqualified approval of Dame Fashion join forces to make the work of the home dressmaker easy. Good taste in selecting fabrics and judgment in determining what style is best fitted to the individual figure, together with the ability to do a fine hand work are all that is required for the development of these blouses.
