·OOTHWMT J, If*] New Fabrics Featured Remedy for "Spring Fever" 1 ' - " .· ' ^^ · . -^^ ^^mf^ . . ' · Campbell-Bell says Easter is neur with two creations by Carolyn.

Fabric is wool anrt silk worsted. The dress, worn by Mrs. Betty Walden, is s Carolyn Junior in a new lightweight raw silk material that lends itself beautifully to Spring costumes. Millinery by Velda and Park- ridg*. gloves by Van Raaltc, handbags by Honay. New Fabrics Stress Texture The excitingly designed anc Textured fabrics that appear in new spring coats, suits anc dresses'Will make them irresistl- .ble to own, whether the plan is to sew a new outfit or select one already made. Two interesting and distinctly different "faces" appear in these fabrics; the icy-smooth .crackling feel in new silks and taffeta shantungs along with the sponge- like springy textured wools, both _ln the smooth-surfaced group. For contrast, there are ribbed, sluhbed nnd nubby effects. It's a textured look that can be seen jo a wide variety of tweed-like, linen-type cottons, sculptured fleeces and wool a n d . , rayon boucles. Contrast) In some new fabrics, striking effects are achieved by combining the smooth and the textured, as in a light sheer wool with a dark boucle check. · All new Spring fabrics have a wonderful lightness of weight, no matter how fluffed the tex- ture. This can be seen in a chiffon weight wool coating, woven in a loose weave with a nubby curled wool, a pebble effect without ex cess bulk and even vooly poodle cloth that appears in a much lighter version this season. - Oversized patterns, "blown up" versions of Tiasket weaves, home- spuns and herringbones, make truly dramatic new-season fashions. Combinations Unusual textures combined with practicality are the combinations of- man-made Orion with shantung, Dynel with acetate and Viscose and rayon and spun nylon, shof through with gilt metallic yarn.' Spring-coats arc predicted to be popular in deep textured, nub- bed tweeds or other loopy-faced woolens. Suits, on 'the more formal side, take to baratheas and worsteds, emphasizing grainy surfaces and a crisp dry face. This characteristic is also present dress fabrics, as for example the linen-like silks and slubbcd worsteds. Forma Is Cover Up For Spring . A romantic, truly feminine sil- houett" will brighten Spring evening festivities. Sleeves.pouff out unexpectedly, torsos are moulded, and skirts shower out from fitted hiplincs, some resplendent with lacy redingotes. .. " . The "covcred-up" trend is apparent, this Spring, with tricky boleros that melt into the bodice, then 'whisk off for dancing, and higher necklines designed especially to show off sleeves. Capelet sleeves sometimes appear with tiny accordion pleats for a "float- ing" effect. Others, huge and dramatic, resemble lanterns. Complementing sleeve fullness, are trimly shaped to figure contours. Skirt fullness is lowered to flatter the hipline and make the waist-line less of a focal point. Prevent Lint, To prevent a linty tinge on dark 'cottons, use fresh suds for different colors. Never use the wash water in which white clothes have been sudsed. Glanmnr Beat Perfume should be applied to the "pulse spots" such as inside wrists, inside crooks of arms, at the temples, at the side of the neck, even behind the knees.
