Sequins, seed pearls, and handmade cabbage roses trimmed the cameo neckline and cascaded down the skirt of the dress. The elbow length veil, the something borrowed, was caught to a crown of sequins and pearls. Bridal attendants carried fans decorated with white carnations to complement their identical styled gowns of orchid organza over taffeta and their orchid flower crowns.

LAST CALL LADIES SHOES ODDS AND ENDS, ETC. 2 - *3 - »4 90 Yleat, tf3ut Que Jioolz 3i Smpkadized Impromptu fashion shbwi wilt ct&ftily be the rule this fall as little girls and slightly ©hfc* sisters tush chattering back to classrooms. And no bonder — for there is a wealth of fashion ekeitelteM and wearable fun in the new dresses, suits, jumpers and separates. The sleek swoop of the A line and the skimmer or natural silhouettes are superb as design bases for the uncluttered look that spells good taste and smart fashion. Their very directness of line makes a perfect foil for the careful use of trim or pleats as an integral part of overall design. Equally important is the ensemble look. It may be a dress and companion coat; it may be a suit—often with an overblouse jacket; or it may even be a dress with sleeves and neck insert contrasting with the body of the dress. Jumpers, too, have their own special blouses, and separate skirts and blouses are coordinated thus leaving nothing to chance in achieving a well put together look. Knit suits, loved by girls as well as their mothers, have some new features this year. Embroidery is new when it is in one defined area packing a fashion wallop in its contrast to the rest of the suit. The much loved sailor suit now has a slightly shorter jacket and strong contrast in the usual two color combinations. Double knits are important because they have more body, more elasticity, hold their shape better and therefore look better. To these advantages add knit-in pleats found in better suits—th^se pleats are permanent through washings for the life of the garment. In separates, the newest skirts are front wrap and coachman styles, and both are complemented by man tailored skirts in exciting prints. Skirts on dresses and suits are smoothly pleated in most instances. Decoration is effective because it is underplayed. Contrasting THE INVALUABLE CLASSIC shown above would be an addition to any wardrobe. An under* stated wool herringbone tweed, it is self-belted slightly below waist level, has easy A-sklrt and jewel neckline. It's for the teen-ager or collegienne. stitching is new, subtle but definitive as it is played against an expanse of solid color. Continuing the neat but chic look, small brass buttons are important as closures, on little pockets or adding a bright touch to a waistband. Brass also shows up as buckles used purely as decoration or on belts. Colors have become more sophisticated with fashion emphasis on indigo blue,, olive and loden green, garnet, grey and even black which looks marvelous if topped by white against a child's face. Polly's Pointers ^Jrace 'WJitlioul By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—If you teach a Sunday School class, have a troop of Brownies or do embroidery work, this may help. In any handcraft work where you use carbon paper fbr transferring a design to paper or fabric, use a ball point pen which has no more ink. It uniform a gives a more unitorm tracing than a pencil and leaves the original design clean for repeated use. -I.E.D. DEAR POLLY — When I go to the beauty shop, I always carry a small mirror, compact or such. I can hold the mirror up so I can set the hair dryer at different temperatures without having to get my head in and out of the dryer. With these large rollers all you girls know how clumsy that can be.—MRS. R. G. GIRLS—If you have cooked under a dryer and still felt it was not worth the trouble to wiggle your head out, you will want to try this.—POLLY DEAR POLLY — My grandmother has a magic way of getting acquainted in a new neighborhood. She bakes a large batch of cookies, puts them in her basket and goes visiting up and down the block. Each child she meets, she gives a cookie and say, "I live in that little house on the corner and I like to cook. Whenever you want a cookie, come to my house and ask for one. When your birthday comes let me know ahead of time and I will bake you some special cookies and a birthday cake for your party, too." In the past six months she lias made eight birthday cakes and she says there are six more coming up in the next six months. The children all love her and call her house "the cookie house." — MRS. T. D. P. GIRLS—There is an older citizen winning new friends SUGAR FREE less than all the time and doubtless keeping in touch with her old ones, too. Old age is beautiful for one so thoughtful. I suppose it proves that life is what we make it.—POLLY DEAR POLLY—Cut small washers from sandpaper and place, with the rough side out, on the screw of drawer and cupboard knobs that are continually working loose. Once the screw is tightened, the knob will stay tight.— MRS. J.R.R. Share your favorite homcmaking ideas . . . send them to Polly in care of Galesburg Register-Mail.
