Shape Is Slim * a Sua By GAY PAULEY NEW YORK (UPI> The casual leak ef eouti t ry clothes takes to town dtor fall and winter, Babushkas. and boots were a couple of the earmarks o€ tfte overwhelming trend to easy-going clothes as the New York eotxtxxre group of designers-fnanufactar- ers opened today a series of shows for "visiting fashion editors from the United States and Canada, The couture group showixrgjs, lasting through Friday, will foe followed by another series of shoWs for four days by a newly- formed American designers group including some California firms. Some of the babushkas were casual scarves, tied peasant fashion, around the head. In some collections, the babushka was fur. One manufacturer showed a leopard scarf worn with a slim- cut beige wool daytime dress. Boots stepped out in almost every collection — most of tin em worn with bulky, country -type tweeds and shaggy mohairs, but a few were jewelled brocades or jet beaded boots to wear -with evening fashions. I Daytime boots in suede or kid came in three heights — almost to the knee, mid -calf, and ankle high. Also part of the' casual trend: Endorsement of the mid- height heel for day, shown in many cases as a single tier Oxford walking shoe. Leg coverings in many cases were cable -knit knee-high stockings, the length usually shown with winter Bermuda shorts for the campus set. In silhouette and length of skirts for day there was little change from the precious fall and winter collections of womens wear. " The shape overwhelmingly was slim for both day and evening, with more long evening dresses than last season. Most of the floor length gowns were slim columns and many were in wool instead of the traditional silks. The shaped waist and bell-shaped skirt for dressy clothes was nil. Daytime hem lengths remained In THE "BIG SOMETHING" of jewelry is in for fall. ' example is this big pin woi the hair. The sculptured tion, by Richelieu, sparkles with crystals, ebony- and rbine- atones rondcllas.

Throughout the collections which the nations store buyers and New Vork and Philadelphia reporters saw in late May and early June, here were some of the things everyone in the multibillion dollar New Vork fashion market was doing: Casual Jumper —-The casual looking jumper, for both day and evening. Some of the elaborate jumpers came with sealskin sleeves and collar, with the rest of the garment wool. Others contrasted wool with velvet. One firm showed a shiny jet fabric combined with wool, for evening. -^-A revival of velvet everywhere for late day and evening clothes, most often shown in black. Other fabrics, in the more casual clothes, included deep-textured tweeds, shaggy mohairs, wide wale corduroys and twills. —Use of fur in novel as well as traditional manner. Weary of merely lining a satin evening coat in mink, designers turned to making mink blouses, sleeveless, to go with tweed suits, or using white mink for sleeveless weskit tops for wool evening dresses. For classroom parties or Sunday dress up, cotton corduroy is a new favorite, and both of these are in two piece ensembles.

ReglsteftMoU Galesbufg, III, Monday, July 8» tf63 By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—1 have just learned how to thread a darning needle easily, and it is just great. Take a piece of sewing thread, fold it and put the loop through the eye of the needle. Then put the yarn through the loop and gently pull the sewing thread and yarn back through the eye of the ' needle.-MRS. D.H DEAR POLLY—If you have a washer and dryer but still like to hang clothes outside, this is a help: Throw your clothes in the dryer for about 10 or 15 seconds, let them tumble, and then take out. This does away with shaking when ready to hang them, and is especially good for baby's diapers and sheets. It saves a lot of lime.—R. D. DEAR POLLY—Since the good old fishing days are here again, I would like to share this little pointer with all others who like to fish. Never leave home without a lemon in your fishing box. In a jiffy it will clean your hands of that fishy smell.—MRS. J.L.S. DEAR POLLY—I use a small, strong chain hooked over a hanger in my clothes closet and insert metal shower curtain hooks every few links to have a place to hang purses. Then I cover the whole thing with a long plastic dress or coat cover.— MRS. C. K DEAR POLLY--When you want your dress shirts or blouses to look starched, but not to feel stiff, try this. Dissolve one package of unflavored gelatin as directed on the box, Pour into one gallon of hot water. Dip garments, wring and dry as usual. They'll have just enough "body" to look nice, and will iron like a dream MRS. B. S. GIRLS —I used only half a package of gelatin in one-half gallon of hot w&'.er to do two cotton blouses and a circular madras skirt, f am more thaa delighted, as they do have a newer look and the Ironing (they were slightly damp) really was a dream—if ironing can ever be at pleasurable.—POLLY Share your favorite homemak* ing ideas . . . send them to Polly in care of The Gaiesburg Register-Mall.
