TJi:itH'8 something Hint you ought to
JUL find n Use for, Itoblrt." With this re
mark Aunt ICnthryn tossed an old paisley
shawl Into my lap. Then sho continued
"When the moths raided the carved oak
chest where I had foolishly left some thfngs
that should have been packed nwey In tho
cedar rlosot they had no respect wbalrter
tor grnniimotners shawl. Toil see it is
prolty badly riddled, but I thought that
you might usn It to trim n frock or cover a
hat, now that they ask n fortune for any
thing of an Indian or Persian shawl.
I unfolded the shawl and held It up to
tho light to sea Just where tho holes were.
Tha moths hail been partial to ono side, for
only a few IioIcb were nprlnklrd over the
other. Jly hopes '.toured, bpcauso I had n,
vision of velvet frock (rimmed with the
(Irandmother hnd tho good taste to choose
a shawl with soft red and dark blue tones
with touches of black and golden brown.
Aunt Kathryn was on her way downtown
to do somo shoniitno-. so I went with her
nnd bought tho velvet for my dresa. After
irying oiacit anil nark bluo with the shawl
we concluded that the latter was, by far,
tho more effective.
There waa a remnant of chiffon velvet
nf an exceptionally good quality that I
could buy for n half dollar less per yard
than tho original price, but I had lo take
n chnnco that It would bo enough for the
frock. Trusting to luck I bought It.
Then I look tho materials homo nnd
started tho frock. I nrst cut nut tho moth
eaten places npd then pinned tho bodlco
pattern to what waa left of the ahawl. Ily
cutting tho sleeves In ono wllh tho bodice
I discovered that tho large piece would Be
Just enough to make It. I arranged the
sections of tho pattern in such a manner
that tho moth holos came near the waist
line In front. It was a disappointment to
find that thero wasn't enough material to
warrant long sleeves,
Thon I basted tho scamn of th hndi
together nnd mado n lining of whlto China
silk. Mother fitted the lattnr in mn nmi
after It was machlne-stltchcd I slipped It
and tho paisley oerblouso on tho dresa
form nnd "built" tho frock,
Tho velvet was very wide wide enough
to reach from tho base of tho neckline
to my ankleii Including a four-Inch hem. z
liked the effect of this lone, untirnkrm tin.
so I cut the skirt In two pieces with t)io
jruiu cxienuing up into tile bodice In a
narrow point. IJoth back and front nro
qulto full, and the former Is gathered about
the normal waistline, forming a frill abovo
tho narrow belt.
Mother nald that I ought to introduce a
touch of tho paisley trimming on tho skirt,
so J mado two triangular insets over the
hips, gathering them nt tho waistline. I
used dotiblo ruffles ot trivet tb outline the
aldo scams and made two slashes through
which to slip the belt In front.
Mother sowed the velvet bullet buttons
In a straight line down tho front. wMIa t
made double nifties wllh which to finish
the short sleeves and nn oddly shaped col
lar of velvet.
Thero Is one feature In particular nbout
this frock that I like: It fastens under tha
velvet point In front.
The moths did mo it "good turn" when
they are holes In grandmother's paisley
shawl: otherwise Aunts Kathryn never
would nave allowed me to cut It up for a
frock. Thero are enough "scraps" left to
use for trimming a hat.
