DIARY OF A WELL-DRESSED GIRL
A Blouse to Wear With the Winter Tailored Suit
Blouse of bluo chiffon trimmed with
MT'Lli DANCB nt your wadding It you'll
X do something for me." This was Ethel
Thompson's greeting ns nho met me at the
Ethel has lUnraya betn so RClf-aufllclant
that I was Interested to know what I could
poslbly do to aid suoh a capable person.
After telling her that I'd be glad for the
opportunity to do her a good turn, she con
tinued: You know I ordered a blue tailored
suit from the same tailor who made yours.
It came homo yesterday, and I suddenly
wakened to the fact that I hadn't a blouse
r hat to go with It."
The remainder of the day we spent In
wandering from shop to shop In search of a
"My suit la a peculiar shade of blue and,
every blue waist to be had In this town
makes faces' at It," said Ethel. "I saw a
piece of chiffon of the nAme color about
two tones lighter that would do nicely If I
can persuade you to help me make the
blouse. You and Mmo. Jacquctte are the
only ones who can make a waist to suit me.
and I'm too poor to go to her this month."
I told her to go ahead and buy the ma
terials, so that we could begin the blouse
that very afternoon.
Ethel had order! a ha- f blue velret,
trimmed with sand.colored ratrlch feathers.
Trie color scheme was extremely smart,
I suggested that wo Introduce n touch of
sana on the blouse.
Armed with the materials and a pattern,
we started for home, and Immediately after
lunch cut out the waist.
I first made a lining of flesh-colored net.
Tnen laying a piece of blue chiffon over the
sand-colored length. I pinned the pattern
t0 '' "d cut out the blouse.
nthel basted the sand-colored foundation
together while I worked on'tho blue over
blouse. I made three groups of tiny pinch tucks
over the shoulders and stitched the seams
together by hand.
..Rihel. hnd-stltched the neams of the
Mnd-coored bodice and bound the arm
holes with a nsrrow bias fold of the chiffon.
v. J, ln ' cul out U" sleeves. They have
Dell-shapd tops with snugly fitted sub.
Jleovea. Each top sleeve Is trimmed with
two broad luoks. Instead of allowing the
wide mouth of the sleeve to hang free, I
. ,the 'agt tocher, half way across,
and trimmed It with three blue crocheted
Kthel made one sleeve nnd I the other,
nnianing them at about the same time.
A. ' WB " we were able to accomplish
Pu c"m ttft"noon. The following day I
stitched the sleeves Into the armholes, with
only a suggestion of fullness.
we had prelously decided to trim the
blouse with a delicate beaded design. I
nrst made two drawings on tlsiue paper
and basted them to the front of the blue
blouse. Then taking tiny red and blue
beads I sewed them to the penciled outline,
using but three beads at a time. As the
design was simple. It took but a short time
to finish the beading.
Tho back appeared rather plain, and I
added a small beaded design Just above
When this was finished I adjusted the
blue blouse over the sand-colored one and
the net lining. The sand-color chiffon ex
tends beyond the blue overbtouse to form a
vest, which Is fastened with blue Crocheted
ball buttons. The effect Is exceedingly
smart. The turned-down collar Is also sand
colored with a narrow border of blue.
The blouse harmonlics beautifully with
Ethel's suit, and she looks lovely In It.
Ted Hamilton has Just dropped In to offer
to help me with the decorations for my
Halloween party. He certainly has splendid
Ideas, and Is going to make some sketches.

It Pays to Buy Groceries Where Quality Counts
Because You Buy Better Quality at Lower Cost
There has never been a bigger demand for groceries of the higher quality than at
present. The advance in price of lower-grade goods is relatively greater than those of
the higher grade. Therefore, more people are now buying higher-grade groceries, and
fully realize that it pays. Our stores have always been noted for the high quality of all'
the groceries we sell, and are more appreciated by our patrons than ever before, and this
appreciation is the more pronounced because our prices are lowei? quality considered
than you will pay in many stores for an equal standard of quality. It always pays to
buy all your groceries "Where Quality Counts and Low Prices Prevail."
