DELICIOUS BAGS TO MATCH $4.95 to $7.95 Crisp Femininity, In Fabric, Design, Keynotes Lingerie There's a crisp, lady-like loo to IImerle designed for Spring And this feminine outlook is: re fleeted to best advantage in th abundance of cottons used fo everything from petticoats t nightgowns, and in the man petticoats presented to help bil low out new fullness of dress anc suit skirts. Most important, perhaps, in the Spring lingerie fashion picture are the many variations of the petticoat, now so popular with th current stress on wide.skirts. Newest are the petticoats with fullness accentuated by stiffening.' This is done,- in many in- etances, with underskirts .0; crinoline or organdy, flexible boning in the hem, narrow hands of corded fabric placed directly above the hemline ruffling .and starched fabrics used in the making of the petticoat itself. New Outlook Petticoat fashion's, in themselves, offer a new outlook for the Spring season. -There are full, full petticoats, designed with side zipper closings and finished waistbands, that can double as skirts. There are pretty cotton petticoats with ultra feminine eyelet embroidery trim made for wear beneath sheer dresses. And there are bouffant petticoats of crisp organdy, designed ' with their own crinoline underskirts, that also may be worn as skirts. Dainty trims also add feminine appeal to new petticoats. Featured are lavish net and lace hem ruffles and colorful floral embroideries. Many of the new petticoats come with their own matching camisoles. Elasticized, shirred and molded midriffs help carry out Spring 'ashion's Empire silhouette theme in nightgowns featured for the new season. While the 'use of organdy and lace trims lends a delightful feminine appearance to newest designs. Typical or nigmgowns emphasizing the Empire silhouette is a gown and negligee ensemble of rayon tricot. The gown is fash- oned with a smoothly fitted waistline that has its molding contours accentuated by an ap- plique of bright gold ribbon. The ull length, easy flowing skirt is jathered' around the hipline. And the brief sleeved top has a wide V-ncckline. Another example of the Empire silhouette is a gown which features a completely smockec bodice feminized with pastel embroidery. Nylon lace inserts outline the bosom of this nylon tricot gown. Placing emphasis on the femininity of trim is, for example, a partrait ncckljne gown detailed with shirred nylon net. Another, in this dress up fashion, is of cotton plisse lavished with tiny tiers of organdy ruffles. Fresh lingerie colors, on hand for Spring, include sparkling whites, mauve, maize, pinks and blues. High Fashion Stays At Home Glamour has invaded the home in new Spring homemaker frocks hat sing with imaginative fabric, color anil style excitement, so that, this season, the lady of the house need never feel improperly dressed when unexpected callers inter- upt her Spring cleaning. The "textured" look, so im- mrtant in dress and coat fabrics, now appears in the at-home dress, ;iving these utility frocks a high 'ashion look. Surface interest is achieved with clipped raised pat- erns and "tapestry" plaids that ook and feel like expensive hand- imbroidery. Striping also achieves he dimensional look, appearing ometimes in a satiny face in nar- ow and wide widths. A whole artist's palette of color ints these new fabrics in vibrant cwel tones, exotic subtle hues, Jnusual combinations of tone on one, and gleaming metallic gold gainst color. Luscious amethyst, angy tangerine, soft jade green nd many other shades do much to jcautify the Spring indoor frock.

Skirts, although in many instances still billowing out with petticoats beneath for emphasis of this swirling effect, are slimmer and more gentle in line, featuring fullness in back panels -of 'all- around pleating. Sweater blouses, too, are gala for a new season. Presented soft pastel shades, these blouses often have dramatic boat-shape or draped surplice necklines, -and make generous use of this season's favored full-blown sleeves. Retaining. their popularity for outdoor living are pedal pushers, irief shorts, slacks, circle skirts, back-wrapped skirts and middy pullovers. But, these -too, are often offered in dressed-up versions of hardy sportswear fabrics. Typical of the dressed-up fabrics is denim, that hard-wearing sportswear favorite. It is dressed up for a gay entrance into the Spring '52 fashion season by touches of embroidery, jet, braid and quilting.
