BY EPS IK KIN Alt I) NE,\ Staff Writer NEW YORK — Yon can make 'oiirsclf a gay costume parasol to natch your favorite summer print, f you have an unbrclla frame vvltli i no-good top, and will follow n few simple directions. How to make? Says Mary Brooks Pickens, who Is an authority on sewing, "You'll need one and pne- thirtj yards of 39-inch material for a large umbrella; one vard for a small size." flut he sure to choose a fabric whose label says it was tested for color fastness to summer sunlight ami showers. Before you dismantle the frame makes notes as to how nnri where the old cover is sewed on, and plan to copy all details of the original even to the handle strap and the support, between the ribs and the tip. Especially study the-details, of how the tiny ruffled 1 business fits over the ferrule end of the stick. Now, detach cover by first removing—and saving far re-use—rib tips and ferrule tip. Use pliers, if necessary, to loosen their grip. Next, carefully rip out otic section of old top, and using this as n pattern, cut as many pieces of paper as you'll.need for new sections. Fold new material crosswise through the center and pin the raw edges firmly together. Lay paper Pieces on cloth, alternating the wide part at one end and the narrow part at the other, as "in II- lus ration A. until you cut as many, sections as you'll need. Pin the edges of these together the narrow edges all to oti e end and tne wide edges to the other French seam these—leaving n tinv opening in tlie center ot the cover where seams converge—and make seams very even, taking up exactly, and no more, the allowance you hav e made so as to insure correct fit. Mak c a narrow machihc hem all around the outer edge of the cover. Then, place new top over frame, inserting npcx tip of frame through hoi;, leit in the center of the cover. Tack new top to-position on tile sides and at the tip of each nb, as In illustration B, using the same .kind of stitches that you examined whr-n you ripped off old cover. Now, using as «. pattern the rtif- fled bias strip that you removed from old lop at the ferrule end of tile umbrella, cut. a new one fol- llowma details of original in fold; mg, joining c( ig cs am i drawing . in ; a circle u-ith a gathering thread', which mil look, when finished like Illustration C.
