They realized that the hip treatments on dresses often involving a widely jutting bow, or back sashes tying and looping over the derriere, a woman would need a coat whose lines could stand such frivolous departures from the straight and narrow. The full flare coat can be depended on not to bulge in strange places. She adds that if you happenT tne groom and Mr. tan Frederick and Mr. Henry Forrester were ushers.

They are the fitted coat with swirling skirt, with or without a wide band of fur at the hemline and the short-cut coat with bulk to the top which you will wrap or hold close about the hips. Happy Solution When the wrapped, short coat first stepped into the 1947 fashion picture, it was hailed to such an extent many thought this was to be "the silhouette" for both night and day. But the answer is no. Though the wrapped look, sometimes called the "cocoon" silhouette, is one of the happiest solutions to the longer skirt lines, it hasn't by any means edged out the figure-fitting coat, or the grandly sweeping flare Fitted coats keep in mind the sleek molded bodices of the new dresses, but their skirts swing wide enough to accommodate drapery or pleats beneath. The buttoning treatment of these figure fitters is more than usually interesting this season.

In fact, buttons even show up at the back sometimes. Often the closing slants diagonally. Hoods are trying to find new ways of muffling your chin, winding across the front and fastening at the side or back. Scarlet Pimpernel Collars Collars on coats are in the spotlight, too. Many collars are outsize and upstanding.

These great upstanding collars that muffle the throat to the ear-level, give the look of a Dickens coachman, a 19th century dandy, the Scarlet Pimpernel. Some coats have a big bertha collar that can be arranged high or wide, again, others look like those Byron wore. As for fur trims on coats, the great lynx or fox collar of years ago appear again and bandings of fur on skirts help to further the swing and swirl of wide hemlines. This is cer. tainly the fall to make use of any bits of fur you've had cached even if it's just enough to cover a button.

And, incidentally, the short, wrap-around coat may be the solution for doing over that good, but too short, long coat in your closet. 693 Granville St. 4ou blue dressmaker suit with pep- Tesf ed and Proved for British Columbia lum.
