TUESDAY, APRIL 11, < II \ff w Pi 4 'roll — ran onnss frot? MUSI owft If you've studied fashions this season, you realize the importance of chiffon. Its soft delicacy IB perfect for the re* taxed look, so very big this year. Nothing flows and drapes more gently than this supple, fitmy fabric. To work on chiffon, there are some precautions you should take; the finishing of the garment, such an seams, Is most important. Here are some things to watch out for. 1. Before you even handle the fabric, be sure your fingernails and cuticles are smooth. If they aren't, you'll find they catch the threads with the rough edges. 2. Next, cover your table with a sheet. This will keep the fabric from slipping and distorting the pattern pieces. 3. Findings: Have a sharp pair of shears on hand. Dull edges will chop fabric. Use NEW, VERY FINE machine needle and No. 9 hand sewing needle. Use short machine stitch. 15-18 stitches per Inch. Silk or mercerized cotton thread is required. 4. Baste, do not pin. Chiffon not only slips but runs and catches as does a stocking. If you use pins you'll probably lose half of them before you've finished fitting yourself. When marking darts, etc., use tailor's tacks, not chalk. 5. Stitch seams over a piuce of tissue paper and tear paper away when seam is completed. You'll find machine stitching much easier this way. 6. Lining: for crisp- look, use taffeta; for soft drapey effect, use rayon or silk crepe. Use this lining for fitting purposes, too. Fit the bodice on the lining first, and make as many corrections as you can on the paper pattern before cutting the chiffon. Then, sew lining and chiffon together as one, concealing all seams on the inside. The lining and chiffon skirts are joined at the waist only In most styles. Hun- die chiffon as little as possible. 7. Always use French seams on skirt. This is a seam within a seam. Wrong sides are placed together and stitched % inch from the edge. Turn seam to inside and stitch on the normal seam allowance. Raw edges are completely enclosed. (Figure 1). 8. Hems: For bias-cut skirt, make hand-rolled hem. Roll edge tightly. Slide needle in Perfume 'Round the Clock Q.—Dear Jane: I adore perfume, but for some reason or other Its fragrance Just does not last on me. I have told several of my friends that I want a new perfume, but first I must nnd out about a lasting one —Mrs. G. B. A.—A particularly good Idea for women who claim that perfume does not "stay with them" Is a Liquid Skin Sachet. It smooths on the skfn very easily, and lingers longer because of Its sachet base. It has a slower rate of diffusion and evaporation than any other type of fragrance and was originated by Houbigant, Try their Chan- tllly Liquid Skin Sachet. Only $2.50 plus tax at Thrifty Drug Stores FIG.l no. z the roll as you slip stitch hem in place. (Figure 2). For skirts shirred at the waist, with side seams on the straight of grain, use either a hand- rolled hem, or very deep 6 or 7 inch hem. * * * * A booklet containing 15 Ideas for gifts you can make Is now available.
