L. 'r ; jd - SlfJNw its. THIS 1808 SAMPLER WAS Chemise Dress Should Skim, Not Cling A DESIGNER is a little like a doctor, who can give you a prescription to make you feel better. A good designer can often give you a fashion prescription to make you look better. Here are some of the best fashion prescriptions to be used with the clothes of today.' PRESCRIPTION: With pants day or evening wear pantyhose or elasticized pants, IF you are not siim. With sheer blouses and tops, Edith Head wear a pretty slip, or fancy br'a, so you won't have that "underwear" look. .: With the new chemise dresses (which do show the figure), don't wear too small a size. Let them "skim" rather than "cling" that way you won't snow any bulges (either yours or your underwear). FOR THE new "tendril," romantic hairdo's, don't wear them with sport or work clothes, or you would look silly- Above all, don't emphasize bad points. No rings, if your fingers aren't pretty. No heavy necklaces for short i necks. No wide or fancy belts for heavy waistlines. No very short dresses for heavy legs. Fortunately, most of us don't have to go to a "fashion doctor," as we can usually diagnose ourselves. If you can't, write me. I'M NOT sure I believe it, but the fashion forecasters say that sex is "out" in clothes. Gone are the nudity, the bare midriffs, the see-through fashions. Gone are the harem girls and the belly dancers also the navel-plunging necklines and thigh-revealing split skirts. 'In place of the sex fook, we will have the "demure" look sweet, rather quaint, high-necked, long-sleeved, long-skirted, ruffled confections the kind of clothes that will make a man help you across the street, or give up his seat h) a crowded bus. The age of chivalry will return, and there will be no more unisex fashions just sfrong, masculine men and dainty, feminine women.

THEY SAY every woman would like to be fascinating, and perhaps that's why the "fascinator" (that romantic headgear .that started in the 17th Century) is coming back in fashion. Actually, a fascinator is a covering for the head of silk, lace, net or even fine yarn, knitted, crocheted, and it's one of the prettiest fashions for spring and summer. One of the favorite versions is the lace fascinator, especially for spring and summer evening wear. Here are some of the others: THE CROCHETED or sheer knit fascinator for day wear; the jeweled or sequinned fascinator for party wear, the organdy and sheer fascinator to match dresses, and the print-. ed sheer fascinator to match dresses.

It Is a sampler dated 1808 which was found folded in a drawer. The owner, Martin Cramp of Wadsworth, was afraid it could only be saved for a few more years in the same kind of hiding place, as it was too fragile to handle. But now it will be a cherished antique displayed with pride as the handiwork of a 12-year-old , ancestor, Rachel Himback, an exquisite needlewoman. She probably developed bad eyesight as samplers were worked entirely by thread count in those days. TO PRESS out the wrinkles without heat, we put the sampler on a piece of foil and rolled it over a cardboard tube where it stayed for several months. To avoid extra handling while mending the work, I used an oversize embroidery or quilting frame, 17 by 27 inches. That way, I was also able to hold the work taut and work from both sides. First, I stitched by machine, a- piece of linen two inches larger than the sampler on all sides to a large piece of organdy that I could stretch in the frame. CAREFULLY placing the sampler on the new linen background so that the straight of the sampler would line up with the grain of the linen, I stuck pins in the sampler and background to hold the work with the least amount of tension. Since I did not pin the work, but stuck it, it was a little like mittine Dins in a bulletin board. This had to be done holding the frame against a table and before I could permanently attach the work. Count on a few pinpricks with all those sharp points dangling like so many fishing hooks. With silk thread to match the sampler, I took tiny stitches around the edge of the sampler and at various places where it was frayed and worn. This gave it needed support for framing. SOME of the modern light Good Idea IT'S A good idea to prepare fresh vegetables shortly before cooking them. 8.88 NOW By DAPHNE GINNINGS linen shows through the designs as I made no attempt to replace any of the missing areas of stitching. We think this acts as an accessory to the old work and enhances its beauty and age. The owner, an expert cabi ) A i i ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY " 4 FOR PROFESSIONALIZED SHOP AT HOME ... net maker, placed the sampler on its newarkground in a hand rubbed cherry frame he made, signed and dated. No-glare glass will protect the embroidery and that old sampler will last another one hundred and sixty years. SAVE MORE WHEN YOU DO IT YOURSELF. EASY TO INSTALL! 50 SQ. YDS.
