Sea?ns to Me Some Sewin Machine Hints Invitations Mailed for Shurtlef f Reunion ledge widths. 7. While stitching, guide fabric with both hands. It's a good idea to hold two layers of fabric a little taut, with your left hand holding the seam back of the needle and the right holding it in front. This is because the bottom layer tends to feed a little faster than (he top one. But, be sure not to pull the fabric backward or forward. Just guide it and the machine will feed it so that your stitches are equal in length. * * * * * Miss Scolt is always glad to hear from her readers, and whenever possible will use their questions in her column, hut because of the great volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters. Patricia Scott has prepared a booklet, which gives complete instructions for altering so that finished garments will fit perfectly. For your copy of this guide to correct fitting, write to Patricia Scott in care of this newspaper, enclosing By PATRICIA SCOTT If you've just purchased your first sewing machine there are many things you'll have to loam, from how to sit to stitching a straight line. Here are some hints: 1. Be sure the machine is near a good light, but not facing it. 2. Use a straight chair or sewing stool placed directly in front of the machine. Sit upright. The feet should be squarely on the floor if a knee lover is used. 3. Learn to control the electric power. Place the knee lever or foot pedal in a comfortable position. Practice starting and stopping The amount of pressure put on pedal or lever determines speed. Learn to stitch smoothly at both low and high speeds. 4. To practice straight lines, curves, etc., leave the machine unthreaded and "stitch" on paper. The needle simply perforates the paper slowly. In turning a corner, stop with the needle down when you reach the corner. Raise the presser foot and pivot the paper on the needle. Then lower the presser foot and continue. 6. When stitching on fabric, use any of these guides until you learn to operate the machine accurately without aids: j A) Use the seam guide attach-j ment. !

The deeply tanned skin that looked so right with swim suits looks all wrong with fall suits. The situation may get worse before it gets better, too. For as a dark tan fades, the skin is apt to grow sallow and leathery. But that unhappy outcome can be prevented, or at least softened, by various cosmetic measures: —To combat sallowing, apply a stimulation cream several times weekly. Applications rouse circulation, and so bring fresh color and resiliency. —If the skin shows a tendency to flake, use a grainy wash about every third day. It both smooths the surface and deep-cleanses. But be not ovefzealous—never apply grains and stimulation treatment the same day. —At bedtime gently massage with a moisturized emollient. —In the make-up department, there is many a trick to enhance the skin until it gets back to normal. The simplest is a powder base, a bit lighter than your tan and laced with pink. Dr the skin tone can be neutralized with white translucid under- base, before application ol your accustomed foundation shade. Or a bit of rouge might supply the just-right amount of bloom. —The tender lip—scuffed and dry from sun—responds to lipsticks with a medicated Inner ring that supplies healing allan toin. A totally new concept, such lipsticks condition as beautifully as they color—to a luscious cherry or coral tone that perfectly offsets fading tans.
