Quot to have nerve is an expression so often used in the derogatory sense that few realize How much the Possession of nerve has had to do with the Success of Many players. I Here is no More gearing incident of nerve than that exhibited by Ada Lewis when she first made up her. Mind to adopt a dramatic career. Miss Lewis presented herself at the Baldwin theater san Francisco and asked for a position. When she received the reply Quot All full a instead of going Hogue she went to the Side of the stage where some extra girls were waiting to rehearse.

Some imp6rtant Points to keep in mind and the rest is easy be careful not to let the material pucker. To Cut a High standing Collar without a pattern or rather to make your own pattern take the exact measure of your neck top and Bottom. Jot Down on paper then draw a pattern like the illustration Given. If the Collar fastens in the Middle of the Back then the Middle of the front is on a straight fold. One important Point to re Mem. Ijeh a a �t4nd\��j Cohn Cir Ltd t Ber is to have the Collar As straight As possible that is not to have too curved edges. The More circular a Collar is in Cut the thicker and larger the Throat looks. See to it that the neck line of the Waist is High which in itself will help in having a straight Collar. The height or Tho Collar front and Back is not decided on usually making it a half Inch or More higher at the Back Mark the height for the front on Tho Edge of the Puper which represents the fold of the material then measure across the Bottom Edge the number of inches for half of the neck measure and make a Dot. Measure straight up from thib Dot from one Liaf to one Inch and put a Mark there. Draw a Lino slightly curved from this Mark to the Bottom Edge of the paper in Tho Middle of the front. This will give the lower Edge of the Collar. Measure up in the Middle of Tho Back from the height it is to be in the Back put a Dot there then measure from the Dot marking the height in the Middle of the front to the Quot height Quot Point in the Middle of Tho Back and put a Dot where Tho right size for the top of the Collar comes. Connect the top and Bottom in Tho Middle Back by a straight Lino then draw a line curving slightly like Tho Bottom on connecting the two Points at the top. This can be Cut out and used As a pattern. This pattern does not allow for any lapping so if the Waist buttons half the Width of the hem must be allowed beyond the Middle of the Back. Cut the cloth out exactly As Tho pattern was made putting the Middle of the front of Tho pattern on a straight fold of the goods and allow Suli Clent for seams All around Square off the Corners turn right Side out and use an Ivory stiletto to get the Corners Well in shape. Holding the Waist wrong Side next to you. Pin the Middle of the Waist to the Middle of the Collar then pin the Collar and Waist together at the ends and Baste carefully together the stitch on the machine after which the seam should be clipped nearly to the stitching at intervals All the Way. The neck of the dress is quite curved and this clipping makes it set better then the wrong Side of the Collar is clipped on the Edge basted and hemmed Down. Care must be taken not to pucker the material at All. Many women have been obliged or have preferred to replace Long bilk gloves not by a new pair but by Short ones which they sew to the perfectly Good arms of the old ones. This seam however makes an unsightly line which immediately proclaims Economy to All the world. One Clever woman crocheted instead of sewing the parts together. The crocheted band was in a pretty pattern and of silk to match the gloves in Shade was an ornament in place of blemish and for months her friends haunted the stores in a vain search for a counterpart. Not Only does the crocheting improve the appearance of the old gloves but it also lengthens them and relieves that distressingly a a Short feeling often present in inexpensive kinds. Darker blouses Are modish. Change in style that has much to recommend it. There Are innovations in the province of the ready made Blouse this season. Heretofore it has been possible to buy White blouses of silk Satin crepe Chiffon or lace in almost any degree of elegance but the dark Blouse has usually been of Tho simplest sort clinging to shirtwaist lines or departing from them with unsatisfactory results. The woman who wanted a truly smart dark Blouse for Wear with a trotting frock was obliged to have it made and even then More often failed than not. For some time past the heavy durable Chiffon known As Chiffon cloth has been first favorite for the costume Blouse being sheer enough for com fort in our overheated buildings offering possibilities of dainties a and dres siness yet practical for All that. Dyed be Tbs and laces also claimed attention As Blouse materials and after them came the soft Silks an crepes. This fall Blouse makers who Supply the ready made models have been inspired to offer to their Trade blouses of Chiffon cloth thin voile net am lace in dark colors blues. greens. Blacks made after the fashion of the lingerie blouses without Bones or fitted lining. The Shear dark stuff is Laid Over a White Chiffon or Musselino or in some instances a sheer India bilk and affords All the Comfort of the unlined lingerie Blouse while echoing the color of the costume and looking warmer than the Blouse of Batiste or mull. In the richest materials. Afternoon and reception frocks Aro truly gorgeous. For afternoon and reception frocks fur plays an important part while Liberty Satin and velvet Are favorite fabrics. A very charming and characteristic coat of Black caracal is sketched by our artist. It is worn with a skirt of soft purple Liberty Satin and a purple Chiffon and Satin Blouse Tho Waistcoat consists of Pale Tan cloth worked in shades of purple Peacock Blue and Rose while the revers and neck let Are of Ermine. A touch of embroidery finishes the sleeve under the cuff of Ermine. Charming la the dark purple Felt hat with its. Thick inching of Black Satin ribbon and waving Paradis plumes
