For Ladies in Waiting Bits of News Mostly Personal BV EPSIE KINAKD NEA Slaff Writer NEW YORK.—Maternity fashions for fall—jewel-toned suits with military dash and dresses that ladles who aren't in .waiting will want- lake the old-time stigma oiT maternity clothes. What chiefly puts these once plain Janes into the glamor class is the ingenuity of New York designers in adapting ndjtistnblc devices to style instead of reversing that procedure, as in the past. What his happened is that tlie 8-to-12 Inch waistline expansion'"device has wangled its way into styles for the expectant mother which other women find exciting. . One such trend' is toward the natty little suit In gay colors which masquerades as an officer's coat, Typical is tlie uolero-stylcd rosc- 1 quartz coloicd wool, shown at the left, which uses for waistline cxpan- •slon adjustable cloth-covered but- 'tons on a double-breasted jacket and a skirt, paneled like n suitor's punts. Styles in dresses that many ladies who aren't in waiting will snap 1 up arc those with dirndl skirts, . floimcy little ueplum.s, tunics thai. I accommodate a hitched up .or let out belt, and those newest nifties with sarong drapery. Shown at tlie right is one of these which lias a turquoise crepe blouse, a <!;irk brown , wrap-around skirt and'built-in sa• rpni; which has as a^latchet adjustment a row of eyes and a hook.
