To begin, I should first tell you that I have two teen-age sons, and being a mother, I cannot help but want the very best of everything for them. 1 am a "typical mother" in that I don't want to see them hurt by anyone. I am not a typical mother, for I sec things many mothers never hear of, much less become Involved in, because my husband is a minister and we see the very best and the sordid worst. I would like for you (o be brutal with my sons. Is that a surprise? If you lino then, speeding in a car, please be brutal.

I sincerely hope thev' won't need your help; but t[ they do, and if you must, then .ie iTutai. A Conc'-med Mother EDITOR'S NOTE- The above was written by an unknown mother and published in the METAL FABRICA™« of Rockford, Illinois. Mr. R. Mate, the Editor and Publisher was kind enough to give us permission to reproduce this letter for our REVIEW readers. Paris has just completed a showing of Spring-Summer 1971 ready-to-wear fashions and while Paris designers no longer are strong enough to dictate styles to the fashion world, they do definitely influence the design of clothes. The mini-dress was being worn all over Europe for four years before it was widely accepted in the U.S. where many a woman was saying she could never wear a short shirt. Paris designers generally act as pacesetters in the fashion world and while their styles are high fashion and voguish, the trendsare eventually seen in modified form in the more conventional styles worn by us. So while you're still wondering how to spark up your fall wardrobe, here's a brief preview of what's being shown and what may v ,. be in store for you (in moderation of course) this spring 1 !' In pants, it's knickers, jumpsuits, gauchos and jeans for high-fashion styles. In the more conventional styles, pants are fuller, with tiers, ruffles and slits. Soft fabrics and East Indian prints are important. Some pants are slit up to the knee. Knit pants with a side pleat are being shown in all collections. In dresses, the look is soft. Skirts are softer with inverted pleats, rolled hems and gentle gathers. Fabrics are soft and often shirred softly through the hips. Many hem lengths are long - even ankle length. Reports are that the long skirt is exciting especially to the young - they never wore them. Colors are candy-like - lots of lemon sherbet, moss, heather, goldenrod, lapis blue. Yves St Laurent's collection for spring and summer was unique. With Women's Lib so much in the air, Yves insists tliat it's time for women to become aware of their treatment as second class citizens and take the initiative to develop themselves into less dependent, more mature citizens. Yves uses fashion as a subtle form of protest and his collection attempts to mirror the new dynamism that Women's Lib calls for. His dresses are broadshouldered an effect he achieves by gently puffing the sleeves. He sliirrs everything softly through the hips and then lets the skirt fall to the top of the knee or the bottom of the calf, or even to the floor. He showed 35 Longuettes and 12 short (just touching the top of the knee). His new coat is like a painter's smock, belted at the waist. Something new - short shorts called HotPants are being shown in all sportswear collections, in denim, knits and polyesters. In coats, there is a return to a coat with a fuller body, squarer shoulders, and bigger collars. So these are the trend highlights. American buyers said they were feeling more and more like "old fashioned gals" in their very short skirts. * » • * Latest Who's Who wearing a midi: Paul McCartney's wife, who bought three long Midi button-down-the-front skirts and a three- piece Midi vest outfit with a maroon midi-skirt. Stitch A Sampler Holiday decorations that mean the most are the ones made by a member of the family or a friend Used year after year, they become a part of the traditional observance of the Christma's season. One that will add to your own decorations or make a handsome gift is a holiday needlework sampler. Samplers have a history dating back to Colonial days, and mention of them can even be found in wills and literature of the early 1500's. They were originally done by ydunt' girls learning to sew They made them for practice or to show their skill The holiday sampler above, an original design by Coats £ Clark is worked on cotton monk's cloth with six-strand cotton embroidery floss. The design calls for nine basic embroidery stitches, and the finished size of the sampler is 15 by Ifl'/i". Easy for beginners, it's an inexpensive but rewarding project for holiday needlework. Free pattern for the sampler can be obtained by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope to the National Cotton Council Dept PR P O. Box 12285, Memphis, Tennessee.
