THE SAUNA JOURNAL LIFE SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2001 D5 T SEW SIMPLE T FASHION Chemise -Style dress is Maternity clothes market is reborn match for sheer j acket EUNICE FARMER KingFmliires Dear Eunice Farmer; I'm intrigued with the sheer jackets that look almost like mesh fabric. I would love one to go over a basic dress. Like so many other women, I would like my arms covered, yet I like the new sheer look. Am I looking for the impossible? ~ Gail 0. Dear Gail; I have selected a wonderful basic dress with a flattering square neckline and wider-than-average shoulder straps. Look for Butterick 6142, sizes 8-24. * The dress is a chemise style with slight fitting that is optional, depending on the most flattering look for your figure. This is a perfect basic dress to wear under a sheer jacket. You will find sheers in prints, mesh waves and other styles. They always are unlined. This is a great new look for the summer season. It can be dressy or very casual, depending on your fabric selection. The pattern includes several lengths, one style with side buttons and also a simple three-quarter-length-sleeved jacket. It is easy to make. . Dear Eunice Farmer: Do you know of any organization that would be able to use old dress patterns? If so, I would appreciate any ideas for recycling them. — Dimple F. Dear Dimple: I will have to ask my readers to help with this question. If you know of any organization that would be able to use old patterns, please drop me a note at Eunice Farmer, Box 31729, St. Louis, MO 63131, and I will happily share your ideas in a future column. Dear Eunice Farmer; A group of us have discovered the Renaissance fairs, and we have fun traveling from city to city to participate. I would love to make my own gowns, but I don't know where to look for "period"-type patterns. I would even consider making something for my husband and my children. Please help. — Lila B. Dear Lila: You can't imagine how many patterns are available for you, especially in the McCall's and Butterick catalogs. There are many Renais- Clothing for pregnant women now modeled after popular trends By RACHEL BECK The Associciled Press NEW YORK — The long-ignored maternity clothes market is getting a much-needed rebirth. Some of the nation's top designers and best-known retail chains finally have figured out that moms-to-be want trendy clothes to wear during those nine long months. "For a long time, people forgot that pregnant ladies still wanted to look hip, not frumpy I'm happy that is changing," said Nicole Markson, an expectant mom from Fort Lee, N.J. Some 4 million women in the United States give birth each year, and while most don't want to buy a brand-new maternity wardrobe, they would like staple items such as pants and Butterick 6142 sance costumes, historical and Asian patterns out there — all with authentic details. You will find ideas and patterns for children, men and women. Pattern winner Each week, a reader wins a McCall's pattern of his or her choice for sending in a helpful sewing hint. This week's winner is Norma Nelson from Brooksville, Fla. Her tip: "Place a felt craft square next to your sewing machine and put pins, a seam ripper, scissors and other sewing items on the square. They will stay in place and not roll off the edge of the table. Felt is perfect when working with sequins and beads." You, too, could win a current McCall's pattern of your choice. Send your sewing tips to Eunice Farmer, Box 31729, St. Louis, MO 63131. If she selects your tidbit for publication, you'll receive this prize. Over 20 Years Catering Experience dlllCKEN 649 S.

Nicole Markson expectant mother from Fort Lee, N.J. shirts, and maybe even dresses and suits they can wear as they grow bigger. But options have long been limited. The expectant set also was unhappy with the clothes that were available at some stores. Maternity wear was expensive, but despite the high prices, some of the clothes didn't wear very well and weren't very fashionable. "This was a niche market that was completely underad- dressed, which is so surprising because there was such huge demand. New women get preg­ nant every day," said Cindy Weber Cleary, fashion news director at InStyle magazine. Now there's a revolution of sorts in the maternity business. Many designers and retailers are' entering the market, and the growth is coming at both the moderately priced and high- end stores, as well as on the Internet, giving women everywhere access to stylish clothes. There also are big changes in maternity style. Instead of oversized garments that hide a woman's figure, clothing is now modeled after current fashion trends and fits the body much more closely. Some stores are even showing halters, tube tops and tight leather pants. : Better- quality fabrics such as - Lycra and matte jersey also are being used in maternity clothes. Macy's and Lord & Taylor have expanded their maternity selling space and made it more prominent due to increased demand. Target, too, has created more ,.• room for maternity, and its ef- forts have paid off — sales rose., ;' 20 percent from 1998 to 1999. ' Target now has nine racks of • maternity merchandise filling • its discount stores, with most items selling for below $30. All styles mimic those found in the women's area of the store, such as sweater sets or capri pants. "We feel women really want to look good, but they don't want to pay a fortune. They are only going to wear these clothes for a • short period of time," said Julie Guggemos, a maternity buyer at . Minneapolis-based Target.
